Myocardial ischemia

Myocardial ischemia occurs when blood flow to your heart is reduced, preventing it from receiving enough oxygen. The reduced blood flow is usually the result of a partial or complete blockage of your hearts arteries (coronary arteries). This is commonly known as cardiac ischemia.

This doesnot show any symptoms or signs, but when it occurs, the most common signs or symptoms are

·         Neck or jaw pain

·         Shoulder or arm pain

·         A fast heartbeat

·         Shortness of breath when you are physically active

·         Nausea and vomiting

·         Sweating

·         Fatigue

Conditions that can cause myocardial ischemia include:

·         Atherosclerosis

·         Blood clot

·         Coronary artery spasm

Risk factors:

  • Tobacco
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol level
  • High blood triglyceride level
  • Obesity
  • Waist circumference
  • Lack of physical activity

Myocardial ischemia can lead to serious complications, including:

·         Heart attack

·         Irregular heart rhythm

·         Heart failure

Cardiology research Journals like Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine (CCCM) provides a global open access platform to put forth the ongoing research, reviews articles related to all heart related disease, its treatment, case reports and many more.
