UMEM Educational Pearls - University of Maryland School of Medicine, Department of Emergency Medicine

A new study from Australia shows that temper tantrums tax the heart. Some 300 patients with acute heart attack and confirmed coronary occlusion by angiography rated their usual anger level and their level in the 48 h before the attack. Just over 2% reported blowing their stack within 2 h of the attack. The angry outbursts were provoked by arguments at home, in the community, or at work, or by road rage. Compared with their usual anger levels, the relative risk of heart attack from their fit of rage was 8.5. Mechanisms may include sympathetic activation that speeds the heart, raises blood pressure, constricts blood vessels, and activates clotting (1).
