Angina Pectoris Anti-Anginals
Angina is also known as angina pectoris, which means “squeezing of chest” in the latin language. It includes chest pain that is caused by insufficient blood flow to the heart muscles. The heart muscle is work with the help of coronary arteries. If these arteries get narrower, the reduced blood flow means that the heart muscle receives less oxygen than it needs to properly function. Angina is often a warning sign of an approaching heart attack. The severity of the heart attack depends on how many myocardial cells (muscles of the heart) are damaged or killed. Middle-aged and overweight male smokers are most at risk of angina.
