In this modern era, type A behavior pattern is common now. There is substantial evidence to denote that the type A behavior pattern is correlated with an elevated risk of coronary heart disease.

Abstract


In this modern era, type A behavior pattern is common now. There is substantial evidence to denote that the type A behavior pattern is correlated with an elevated risk of coronary heart disease. Present research has displayed that Type A personality as compared to personality of Type Bs, people demonstrate increased biochemical and cardiovascular responses to stressful situations. Cardiovascular and other responses to stress of subjects considered to be at risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) were studied in order to evaluate the link between type A behavior pattern, stress and cardiac diseases. In this study we examine the relations among type A behavior pattern, stress and cardiac diseases.
