Emotional stress is considered to be one of the basic pathogenetic factors causing diseases of the cardiovascular system . Its particular example is the examination stress, which develops in some students expecting an examination. In this case the reactions of the autonomic system in some persons can be oppositely directed and reach a magnitude that puts an organism on the borderline between norm and pathology .
