A common panic attack that is easily and frequently experienced by hispancs (mostly female).
A popular variation of this is not a true panic attack at all but an episode in which the person acts ill (fainting, seizures, unresponsiveness, chest pain, etc.) to get attention from someone, usually a loved one, and will likely be seen after an argument or confrontation... usually with a loved one.
After a fight with his girlfriend, a man places a call to 911 stating his (hispanic) girlfriend is in distress. Upon arrival of EMS there are no problems found but the 'patient' continues with the act until she receives the attention she wants; often after being transported to a hospital ER.
This type of behavior is called a hispanic attack.
