Angina Pectoris - Dangerous Disease Causes of Death

Angina pectoris is an ischemic heart disease. The emergence of this disease result from a lack of oxygen supply and decrease blood flow to the myocardium. Angina pectoris is divided into three types, namely: classical angina (stable), a variant angina and unstable angina.

Classic Angina usually occurs when the patient's physical activity. While the variant angina usually happens when you're resting, usually occurs in the morning. Unstable angina is unpredictable when it happened, may occur when taking a break, or when doing physical activity.

Angina is chest discomfort that occurs when there is reduced blood oxygen supply to the area of ​​the heart muscle. In most cases, lack of blood supply caused by narrowing of the coronary arteries as a result of arteriosclerosis.


Symptoms of Angina:
  • Chest feels like pressure,
  • The body feels very heavy,
  • Tightening,
  • Pain in the chest, particularly behind the breastbone.
  • This pain will spread to the neck, jaw, left arm, back, or even to the teeth.

Causes of Angina:
  • Dyspepsia (indigestion),
  • Heartburn (pain in the pit of the stomach),
  • Weakness,
  • sweating,
  • Nausea,
  • Seizures, and
  • Hard to breathe.
Angina usually occurs when patients experience stress, excessive emotions, or after eating a heavy meal. During this period, the heart muscle needs more blood oxygen. Angina usually lasts for 1 to 15 minutes and stops after the break. Nitroglycerin works to lower blood pressure. Both rest and nitroglycerin reduce the demand of the heart muscle for oxygen, thus freeing angina.

Angina is classified into two types:
  1. Stable angina
  2. Unstable angina.
Stable angina is the most common type of angina. The patient will feel chest pain when doing excessive physical activity and full of challenges, such as climbing a tall tree or climbing a ladder. Stable angina will be freed after a break or using drugs, such as nitroglycerin (placed under the tongue).

Unstable angina is a type that is not common and more serious. The symptoms of this disease can be more severe and last longer. Can not be predicted at the time. Unstable angina requiring treatment are very serious, it can lead to death if late to get help from a specialist.
