Hello... I'm a Spanish speaker but am having a difficult time coming up with an equivalent expression in Spanish for the commonly-used English phrase "wakeup call". For example, "Mark's frightening high blood pressure gave him a wake-up call when he realized his diet and lifestyle were putting his health at risk".

Does anyone out there have any ideas or suggestions for how to translate this popular phrase into Spanish?

Muchas gracias
