Angina pectoris


Chest pain caused by a reduced blood supply to the heart is known as angina pectoris.  One of the three types of angina pectoris is unstable angina and may be a sign of a heart attack.

The symptoms of a heart attack are as follows:  a sudden pain on the left side of one’s chest, which may also be felt on the inner side of the left arm, the upper back, the neck or the throat, nausea, disorientation, fatigue, shortness of breath, anxiety, and intense sweating.

It is important for a massage therapist to be aware of the signs of a heart attack in case a patient experiences these symptoms.  The therapist can help assess the situation and then act accordingly.  The client should receive any previously suggested medications, such as nitroglycerin tablets.  If this is a new experience for the client, the massage therapist should call 9-1-1 if the pain lasts for longer than 2 minutes.
