Life-threatening. Posttraumitic stress disorder by definition require that a life-threatening stressor that is re-experienced. Patient's develop flashbacks, nightmares, hyper-arrousal with avoidance of situations that remind the person of the trauma. Even after successful treatment, a person can redevelop symptoms of the initial stressor if they re-experience another traumatic stressor.
Not exactly. The diagnostic criteria for PTSD don't cover all stressors. The stressor needs to be pronounced, & outside the typical realm of human experience, and it typically involves something that is life-threatening or some sort of significant violation/physical threat to you or someone you are with. You can still experience a significant stress response even if it is not PTSD.

PTSD occurs. Much about what the actual stressor is - but rather how it impacts the individual. If it creates a sense of horror or intense fear that may in some individuals lead to a post traumatic response.
