Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Hypomania/Mania Symptoms   #120400

Definition: A questionnaire to assess hypomania (hypomanic episode), a disorder characterized by periods of persistently elevated, expansive, or irritable mood and can include inflated self-esteem, increased distractibility, talking and flight of ideas, and decreased need for sleep (American Psychiatric Association, 2000).

Purpose: The measure is used to establish a history of hypomania in patients experiencing major depressive episodes and can therefore screen for bipolar II disorder. Bipolar II disorder consists of major depressive episodes as well as hypomanic episodes. It has a lifetime prevalence of approximately 0.5%. Patients with bipolar II disorder are often misdiagnosed with major depressive disorder as they may either fail to report or be distressed by symptoms of hypomania. First-degree relatives of patients with bipolar II disorder are more likely than population controls to have bipolar I and bipolar II, as well as major depressive disorders (American Psychiatric Association, 2000). Some individuals who present with major depressive episodes may have a bipolar spectrum disorder.
