...Angina Pectoris Angina Pectoris Introduction There are instances whereby the blood supply to the heart’s muscles becomes interrupted by various reasons. In effect, a person may experience pain in the chest that is normally associated with squeezing, chocking, heaviness, pressure, tightness, and suffocation. Usually, the discomfort usually spreads to the sub-sternum area (Siegenthaler 222). In line with this, it is important to point out that the attack by angina usually occurs when a person is undergoing stressful conditions with a rest playing an instrumental role in relieving the person of the pain. Hence, angina may occur due to incidents of fright, shock, anger, and any other activity... ...

...Angina Pectoris: Symptoms and Diagnosis The term angina pectoris was introduced in 1772 by William Heberden to refer to a syndrome characterized by a strangling sensation and anxiety in the chest area during or after exercise. He was not able to correlate it to cardiac conditions which other experts accomplished through identification of its association by necropsy with patients who suffered coronary heart disease (Christensen 10; Fox et al. 3-9; Crea & Gaspardone 3767). At present angina pectoris is generally used to include conditions such as myocardial ischaemia, esophagus, lung or chest wall disorders. An extensive description for angina pectoris includes discomfort in the jaw, shoulder...
