Re: inducible ischemia

Hi Libby,
I'm from Australia too, but east coast.
Inducible ischemia is a form of blood restriction to a part of the body. Usually here we are talking about restricted blood flow to the heart, or cardiac ischemia - it occurs when the body's muscles demand more blood but the heart can't supply it because the heart muscle or myocardium itself has poor blood flow - usually due to obstructed or narrowed heart arteries. This really means lack of oxygen - starvation.
It called inducible because physical exercise or movement (eg walking fast or ascendng stairs) brings it on. The heart muscle often produces a dull pain or pressure feeling which can extend into the arms, back and neck - not a nice feeling. It can be the precursor to a heart attack so it's wise not to push it or try to "break through" the pain barrier. Doctors advise to immediately ease off and slow down (or to take medication like a nitrate spray which will open or vasco-dilate the arteries, thereby temporarily improving the flow). Stress, and other factors can also bring it on, and in more severe cases it can occur without exertion or any warning at all.
The inducible form is more common.
Cheers for now, Beefsteak.
