"Ischemia is like a cramp in your leg. When you exercises very hard, your leg muscles cramp because they're starved for oxygen and nutrients. Your heart needs the same oxygen and nutrients to keep working. If the heart muscle's blood supply is inadequate to meet its needs, ischemia occurs, and you may feel chest pain or other symptoms."
