Angor animi


Angor animi (also referred to as angina animi[1][2], Gairdner's disease[2] and also angina pectoris sine dolore[2]), is a term used in medicine to describe a person's perception that they are in fact dying. Most cases of angor animi are found in patients suffering from acute coronary syndrom (cardiac related chest pain) such as angina. It is, however, occasionaly found in patients suffering from other conditions[1].

Angor animi is differentiated from a fear or desire for death[1]. Angor animi refers to a patient's actual belief that they are in the present act of dying[1].

The phrase is derived from the two latin terms which it is composed of, namely angor and animi.

Angor (different but related to the word anger), in modern English, refers to a great anxiety[3], distress[4], or mental anguish[4] often accompanied by a painful constriction and palpitations at the upper abdomen and lower thorax (chest)[3].

Animi means an animating spirit, intention or temper[5].
