Abstract

Large magnitude cardiovascular reactions to psychological stress have been implicated in the development and expression of cardiovascular disease.1 Given that cardiovascular disease varies as a function of demographic variables such as age, sex, and socioeconomic status (SES), it is surprising that there are few substantive data on the effects of such variables on the magnitude of cardiovascular reactions to stress.
