What is fascinating about the human body is that despite all its complexities it still manages to identify the smallest of deviations in its regular functioning and signal any issues in the form of symptoms. Be it simpler, more familiar ones like sore throat, runny nose for a cold or more complex ones like angina. This is an unignorable chest pain that results from reduced blood flow to the heart.

The chest pain that accompanies angina is the heart signalling the patient that it needs help and support. It’s an alarm for the patient to pay attention to what's happening inside, take control, and manage the condition to avoid more serious complications.

What is Angina and what causes stable angina?

Angina is commonly an initial manifestation of coronary artery diseases. Identification and intervention of Angina can reduce the risk of more serious cardiac issues in the future. There are two types of Anginal pain - one is a chronic stable kind, and the other is unstable Angina.

Stable Angina is also known as angina pectoris and is the most common type of Angina. It’s a predictable pattern of chest pain, often triggered because of a strenuous physical activity or mental stress. Identifying this type of Angina helps manage the condition and its symptoms better.

Stable Angina develops when your heart muscles do not receive the oxygen they need to function well. The heart works hard when you exercise or undergo any stress.  Various factors such as narrowing of the arteries, also known as atherosclerosis, are responsible for this condition because of the hardening of arteries with plaque (combination of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances), that constricts blood flow.


Stable Angina symptoms

Chronic stable Angina symptoms are equivalent to chest squeezing or a heavy weight resting on the chest. The pain may start from the chest and gravitate towards the neck, arms, and shoulders. During an episode of stable Angina, the patient may also experience

  1. Shortness of breath
  2. Nausea
  3. Profuse sweating
  4. Anxiety
  5. Dizziness
  6. Fatigue

It is usually triggered by overexertion, stress, or exposure to freezing temperatures. The pain may dial down with some rest but resurface if triggered again.

Managing the condition

Chronic stable angina treatment is a combination of lifestyle changes and a steady medical regimen. Non-adherence to treatment is the leading cause of mismanagement of chronic conditions like stable angina.  With the ever-evolving medical technology, there are now  once-a-day pills available to manage chronic stable anginal pain. Such pain usually occurs due to obstruction or spasms of the arteries and progressively evolves to chronic heart failure. Solutions with incremental innovation like sustained-release medication can help patients cope with a new medical regimen by reducing the burden of multiple doses throughout the day.

Living with the condition

In addition to maintaining a strict medication plan in line with one’s healthcare practitioner’s prescription, lifestyle changes such as giving up smoking, monitoring blood pressure, eating a healthy diet, reducing stress levels, limiting alcohol consumption, and performing suitable physical activity under the prescribing doctor's guidance can help keep your heart health in check.


Solutions like sustained-release medications help in maintaining a stable heart rate and prevent it from spiking which plays a very important role in reducing symptoms of the condition and improving it as well. Adhering to your medical regimen will help control heart rate, improve the quality of life, and reduce the frequency of hospitalisation. Convenience of a single dose medication goes a long way in easing scheduling and leaves you with a little bit more mental space for smaller precious moments of life
