Myocardial ischemia results from inadequate oxygen supply to the heart relative to ongoing metabolic demands. Myocardial oxygen supply is defined as the product o f coronary blood flow and the oxygen content of the blood flowing to the myocardium. Blood oxygen content, in milliliters per deciliter, may be calculated as.
