Cardiovascular reactivity, the responsiveness of the cardiovascular system to react to stress differs between people. Psychological or physical stress can raise blood pressure, heart rate etc and lead to physiological arousal in some people more than others. Such stress reactions can have long term health consequences if they persist.
