Abstract

Emotional defensiveness, defined by concealment of both negative emotions and personal vulnerability, was substantially and consistently correlated with the magnitude of blood pressure reactions to 2 types of mental stress among coronary patients, independently of clinical status. Given recent studies denoting stress-related blood pressure surges as triggers of dangerous cardiovascular events, exaggerated vasomotor reactions among defensive patients may be of clinical significance.
