Coronary artery disease, also known as ischemia, is when plaque grows within the walls of the coronary arteries until the blood flow to the heart is limited. Peripheral arterial disease is a condition that develops when the arteries that supply blood to the internal organs, arms and legs become completely or partially blocked as a result of atherosclerosis.
To avoid these conditions, it is important to keep your heart healthy. The PSJMC Wound Care Center offers the following tips to live a heart healthy life.
