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).

Authors’ reply to Braillon and Bewley

Firstly, we agree with Braillon and Bewley that more is needed to support education in this area at the point of care,1 2 and our teams have been working on developing an online patient decision aid that aims to help women make decisions about drugs during pregnancy in collaboration with their providers.3 This tool is currently being evaluated, and one main advantage is that its electronic nature will enable timely updating when new evidence emerges and broad access.
