A 57-year-old teacher with a history of hypertension presented to an urgent care center with nonradiating chest pressure and light-headedness. Her chest pressure had begun soon after she had arrived at work that morning, when she was physically threatened by a parent of one of her fifth-grade students. Her symptoms improved with rest immediately after the event but then worsened by the end of the day.
