A new survey conducted by the Department of Health of São Paulo shows that ischemic heart disease are the leading causes of death around the state. 27,692 cases were recorded in 2011, approximately 75 deaths per day.

The main causes of ischemic heart are diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and people who have family history of heart problems, especially parents. Other factors that may contribute are increasing age and inactivity.

The ischemic heart diseases occur because of the formation of fatty plaques in the arteries, reducing blood flow through the heart. There are two types of ischemia: acute and chronic. In chronic, the patient feels chest pain with some interval periods. Now is considered an acute infarction.

Patients who are having symptoms such as pain or pressure in the chest and shortness of breath should seek medical attention immediately and never wait for the pain to pass or take any medication.
