would a partial blockage inside of your arteries cause your heart rate to increase as a result of the strain?

Cardiac output : If it is a flow limiting blockage, yes. Your heart still has a fiduciary duty to get the same amount of oxygen and blood to the rest of the body. When the pump can't work as good because of her blocked artery, the heart tries to pump faster to make up for the demand it's charged with. In some types of blocks there may not be a fast heart rate.

Yea: It is possible especially if there is some heart damage caused by the blockage.
