Mental precursors of myocardial infarction.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  1974819     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Both cardiologists and psychiatrists have observed that the onset of myocardial infarction is often preceded by feelings of decreasing energy, general malaise, and minor depression. This paper describes these observations and tries to integrate the findings. It is proposed that the mental state preceding myocardial infarction can be best described as 'vital exhaustion'.
