Some ischemia: Don't ever hesitate to ask your doctor to explain a term used during your visit! in general mild ischemia means that there is some documented reduction (inadequate) in the normal flow of blood, i.e. Ischemia. I don't know what kind of test you had or if you are referring to your heart or some other part of your body. Without more information i cannot be more specific.
