Abstract

For our retrospective study, we chose patients who met the inclusion criteria for bipolar disorder (BD) according to the ICD-10. We conducted correlation analyses between scale scores and SSR and RRIV values before and after 1 year ±1 month of treatment. Our results suggest that the feet SSR latency and R% can be used as an indicator of clinical BD remission. The scales have high sensitivity and low specificity in assessing BD remission.
