A lack of adequate blood supply to the heart is called Myocardial ischemia. It usually occurs when a blockage is present in one of the blood vessels supplying the heart.
De-oxygenated blood is called "hypoxemic". This may be either because the body is not taking in enough oxygen for some reason, or that the blood is "venous" blood which is returning to the heart. Once passing through the heart, it moves to the lungs where the carbon dioxide passes from the blood into the air sacs of the lungs and then is exhaled from the body, and the blood "picks up" oxygen, sending it out to the body via arteries.
The heart, the heart pumps the blood so it wouldn't let the blood flow backwards.
Arteries take blood from the heart.
To much fat around the heart can clog your arteries, which pump blood to the heart. Without blood pumping to the heart the heart will stop.
It is a blood pressure medication. Diltiazem is in a group of drugs called calcium channel blockers. It works by slowing the electrical conduction in the heart, slowing heart rate, and/or normalizing heart rhythm. Diltiazem is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure), angina (chest pain usually caused by lack of oxygen to the heart), and certain heart rhythm disorders).
It is so important that the heart always gets a consistent and adequate blood supply because if it didn't the heart could die. Also, if the heart does not get the right amount of blood then the body and brain can become hypoxic.
The heart is made up of an intricate web of blood vessels (coronary arteries) that ensure an adequate supply of blood rich in oxygen and nutrients.
It's called the heart..
The heart muscle is supplied by blood vessels called coronaries.
The vessels that carry blood to the heart are called veins. Those that supply the body with blood from the heart are called arteries.Examples are the jugular veins that return blood from the head, and the carotid arteries that supply blood to the head.
Veins take blood to the heart, arteries take blood away from the heart.The vessels that carry blood to the heart are called veins. Those that supply the body with blood from the heart are called arteries.Examples are the jugular veins that return blood from the head, and the carotid arteries that supply blood to the head.
Veins carry blood from the body to the heart. However the blood vessels that supply the heart with blood are called the "coronary arteries".
While any condition affecting the heart is bad, Heart disease is a general term describing the most serious of these afflictions, such as coronary heart disease, where cardial blood vessels fail to supply the muscles of the heart itself with an adequate supply of oxygen, or Cardiomyopathy, where the muscles of the heart deteriorate.
No, but a good guess. They are called the coronaries.
The blood pumped into the heart isn't there long enough, so the heart has its own supply called the conary arteries (meaning heart arteries).
A thrombus is a blood clot. The coronary arteries are the blood vessels that supply the heart muscle itself with blood. A clot in the arteries will decrease blood flow to that muscle. This is also called a heart attack. The degree of blockage in the heart and amount of time to re-perfusion treatment will dictate how much of the heart muscle dies. If a large enough portion of the heart dies, the heart will be unable to supply the body with an adequate amount of blood and the patient will die. It is spelled corOnary.
