The pathophysiology of liturgical abuses

Bishops, take heed! The new edition of my paramedic textbook, in a section on responding to ambulance calls in the Catholic Church, contains the following information:

Being exposed to liturgical abuses can cause tachycardia, tachypnea, nausea and vomiting, skin pallor, diaphoresis, and can also initiate the fight or flight response in a pre-disposed person. In others it may initiate vasovagal syncope so that they just plain faint.

I concur with the nausea and flight response!
