What is ischemic heart disease?What is ischemic heart disease? It is not a disease but a syndrome, i.e. a set of signals. Thus a cardiac ischemia occurs through signs and symptoms that are reported by the patient, and they appear due to an obstacle in the blood supply to regions of the heart. This phenomenon is called by many as the scourge of modern life.

This syndrome leads the list of the main causes of death and social and labor disability in developed countries. Throughout the world 7.2 million people die annually from heart disease and, in general, twelve million die due to cardiovascular diseases.

Heart failure mostly affects people over fifty years, ischemic heart disease is rare in children and young adults, stroke is less common in rural areas than in the city.

Being a syndrome, it includes a group of diseases, these are: Angina pectoris, heart attack, cardiac arrest, heart failure and heart arrhythmias. (By Juan Blas Rodríguez)
