Acute stress reaction

Nature:

Acute stress disorder (ASD, also known as acute stress reaction, psychological shock, mental shock, or simply shock) is a psychological response to a terrifying, traumatic, or surprising experience. Acute stress disorder is not fatal, but it may bring about delayed stress reactions (better known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD) if not correctly addressed.
