All you need to know: Stable angina

About


Angina is a type of chest pain that results from the reduced blood flow to the heart. The pain is often triggered by physical activities or emotional stress.


Stable angina is not usually life-threatening, but it's a warning sign that the patient could be at risk of a heart attack or stroke. [1]



- Requires a medical diagnosis
- Electrocardiogram required to measure electrical activity in the heart
- Lab tests or imaging such as X-ray often required
- Angiography required
- Blood tests required
- Treatable by a medical professional


Stable angina, also called angina pectoris, is the most common type of angina. Stable angina occurs when the heart muscles don't get enough oxygen to function properly. The heart works faster while exercising or experiencing emotional stress. Atherosclerosis, narrowing of arteries, can prevent the heart from receiving more oxygen. Blood clots can also block arteries and reduce the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart.
