In brief: Yes
Ischemic heart disease simply means heart disease that results from lack or reduced amount of blood flow to the muscle of the heart.
Usually, this is a consequence of coronary artery disease. This, if significant, will usually result in symptoms such as chest pain, sob, or in some cases nausea or other more atypical symptoms.
