Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body.
It can be caused by thick heart, narrowing of the arteries with plaque build up (artherosclerosis), very fast heart rate, very high blood pressure or low heart rate or low blood pressure, drugs causing vaso constriction such as cocaine, smoking, methamphetamine, and high level of stress.

In brief: Definition: ischemia
The term ischemia generally suggests a reduction of the blood supply to a given area of the body such that the functionality of that part of the body is impaired.
Could be from a blockage in an artery delivering blood to that part of the body, or could be from a general reduction in blood supply to deliver to that part of the body.
