    Acute Coronary Syndrome is a term used to describe the clinical symptoms associated with acute myocardial ischemia, which results from the lack of sufficient blood supply to the heart muscles

    Acute Coronary Syndrome points toward an inevitable problem that has to do with a person’s heart. This is particularly true when the heart muscles are unable to receive an adequate supply of blood, which in turn causes the symptoms of chest pain, among many other symptoms. When the arteries leading to the heart become too narrow due to a build-up of plaque, this blocks the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart. Eventually, this leads to the development of angina, or even a heart attack.
