Abstract

Primary objective: To examine the initial neuroendocrine responses and subsequent PTSD symptomatology among amnesic and non-amnesic victims of motor vehicle accidents. It was hypothesized that amnesic patients would be less likely to meet PTSD criteria at 1 month follow-up and would display lower catechalomine levels and higher basal cortisol than non-amnesics. Methods and procedure: Fifteen-hour urinary hormone samples were collectedfrom 70 MVA victims upon hospital admission. Participants were assessed for PTSD symptomatology 1 month later. Main outcomes and results: Amnesic patients displayed lower NE/cortisol ratios than non-amnesics, were less likely than non-amnesics to develop PTSD,and displayed fewer PTSD symptoms than non-amnesics. Conclusions : Amnesics may physiologically experience a motor vehicle accident differently from non-amnesics and have lower subsequent PTSD incidence. These results provide partial support for the hypothesis that amnesia fora traumatic event can serve as a buffering function in the development of subsequent PTSD among MVA victims.
