What are the ischemia symptoms?


Answer by  Cali2307 (1337)

Cardiac ischemia is a condition in which blood flow to the heart is reduced by a partial or complete blockage of an artery. Symptoms can include angina, a tightness or heaviness that starts below the breastbone and can extend to the chest and neck, short breath, skin that feels clammy, nausea including vomiting or diarrhea and arm pain.

Ischemia symptoms include pain, discomfort, shortness of breath or loss of function. An ischemic attack may lead to decreased tolerance of physical exertion and generally "not feeling well," and symptoms should be taken seriously.

For cardiac ischemia, symptoms include nausea/vomiting, shortness of breath, clammy skin, pain in the chest/neck/jaw/arm. For intestinal ischemia, acute symptoms include sudden abdominal pain/tenderness, nausea/vomiting/fever, bloody stools, and urgent defecation.

Ischemia symptoms are related to the heart and may cause an infarctus which may in turn cause death of the patient. The following symptoms are associated to ischema: Chest, neck, jaw, arm pain, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting. Those symptoms are similar to a heart attack or stroke symptoms.

Ischemia is injury to your tissues caused by lack of oxygen reaching the tissues. Symptoms vary depending on where the ischemia occurs. If it is located in the brain, you are said to have a stroke. If it happens in the heart, you are said to have a heart attack.
