Angina pectoris is a decreased blood flow to the heart, which results in chest pain. Pain appears because of insufficient oxygen supply to the heart. Pain can worsen if person experiences physical or emotional stress.
There are two types of angina:
Stable angina is predictable and usually a person knows what can trigger chest pain and thus he has partial control over it.
Unstable angina is a more dangerous condition, when pain appears suddenly, even if a person was calm and did not do any exercises. Without treatment it can result in heart attack.
Very often people who have angina take excessive amount of nitroglycerin pills to alleviate the pain. If it does not go away after 15 minutes, it can be a heart attack a person needs to get immediate medical help. Heart attack happens because of coronary artery blockage.
Usually angina pectoris is caused by coronary artery disease which hampers the blood flow. According to statistics, around 18% of coronary disease attacks are accompanied by angina. This disease is more common in men. Women have angina 70% more often than men.
Overall, all these types of treatment are highly effective and can prevent heart attack in future if you are under risk or prevent new heart attack if you already had one.
