Cutting Heart Rate Reduces Angina Symptoms

Cutting Heart Rate Reduces Angina Symptoms

Globally, coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death
and is predicted to remain so for the foreseeable future. Stable angina
pectoris is defined as chest pain that develops when the heart rate
rises, for example, during intense sports or exciting emotions. In such
situations, the blood supply cannot meet the myocardial metabolism
needs, thus leading to angina.
