A new survey done by the Department of Health shows that ischemic heart disease, chest pain or discomfort are the major causes of death around the state of São Paulo. The survey highlighted the record of 27 000 cases in 2011 to about 75 deaths per day.

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.

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

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 without medical advice.
