What is Myocardial Ischemia?

The heart muscle requires oxygen and blood in order to pump and circulate oxygenated blood to all parts of the body. When the heart receives a reduced supply of oxygenated blood this is called myocardial ischemia. Chronic conditions such as hypertension may contribute to myocardial ischemia.
