Dr. Pradeep Kumar has extensive experience in identifying and treating angina. He benefited the patient from the latest, most advanced angina noninvasive screenings and treatments, like enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP).
Angina is a medical term which is used for chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart muscle. Angina itself is not a disease, it is a symptom of coronary artery disease. Angina is typically described as pressure, squeezing, heaviness, tightness or pain in your chest.
Angina is an inadequate or an insufficient amount of blood getting into the heart muscle. The heart pumps blood around the body. The blood carries oxygen to the heart muscle via the coronary arteries.
When the heart is short of oxygen it lets you know by producing a kind of cramp/tightness/pain called ‘Angina’. Most people have a tightness in their chest which can spread to their arms, neck, jaw, back or stomach.
