How long does reversible ischaemia take to heal?

How long does reversible ischaemia take to heal?

Ex: a blood pressure cuff - can be up for an hour, reverses no prob! But don't try it at home. ...Read more

It usually means the severity of underling narrowing is less, though by definition it is still enough to limit flow. ...Read more
