Lack of blood flow; (such as in ischemic stroke)
Localized tissue anemia due to obstruction of the inflow of arterial blood (as by the narrowing of arteries by spasm or disease).
Local reduction of blood supply due to obstruction of inflow of arterial blood.
A low oxygen state usually due to obstruction of the arterial blood supply or inadequate blood flow.
Insufficient blood flow to some part of the body, resulting in decreased oxygen availability.

A deficiency of oxygen in a part of the body, usually temporary. It can be due to a constriction or an obstruction in the blood vessel supplying such a part. Ischemic heart conditions include heart attack and related heart problems caused by narrowing of the coronary arteries and therefore a decreased supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. It is also called coronary artery disease and coronary heart disease.
