CORONARY insufficiency (with or without the anginal syndrome) may have varying etiologies, which have been summarized by Blumgart, Schlesinger and Davis1 and Levy.2, 9 It is "that condition in which the coronary arteries deliver less blood than is required for the effective performance of the heart."2 The coronary reserve is "considered as being reduced by those factors which decrease the supply of blood, or by those factors which increase the myocardial demands."1 Levy and his co-workers2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 have devised an objective electrocardiographic anoxemia test to assist in making the diagnosis of coronary insufficiency.
