It is well known that bereavement can cause ominous cardiovascular events and elicit aggressive behavior in bystanders. A multidisciplinary approach in end-of-life care including communication and taking into account cultural, social, emotional, religious, spiritual preferences, and local differences needs further development and implementation in health-care systems worldwide. The direct effects of emotional stress on the cardiovascular system and cardiac diseases most frequently implicated in sudden cardiac death are discussed.
