Ischemic Heart Disease Information
A term used to describe the responses of the heart muscle to poor oxygenation following reduction of blood supply. As a result of atherosclerosis, the total amount of blood delivered through the coronary arteries is deficient; either at rest, or in response to an increase in demand.
The transient pain of ischemic heart disease is called angina pectoris.
