Summary We read with interest the article by Smolderen et al (1), which reported real-world lessons from the implementation of an American Heart Association (AHA) recommended depression screening protocol in Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) patients. After implementing a routine, two- step depression screening process using the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ) 2 and 9, the study revealed that more than 1 in 4 (n=135, 26.8%) Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) patients failed to be screened for depression. Specifically, women were likely to be missed. Of those who were screened, almost 7 of 10 patients with significant depressive symptoms failed to be recognized and thus were ineligible for treatment.
