In brief: Blood flow limited

It means that the heart muscle is not getting enough blood flow to meet its metabolic demands to carry out the required activities.
This usually connotes a narrowing ("blockage") in one of the major coronary arteries that supplies heart muscle with blood, and hence oxygen.

In brief: Poor perfusion

Ischemia is caused by low or inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to a tissue: heart attack stroke amputation renal failure are sequellae of ischemia coronary are the heart arteries and identification of ischemia is to treat and prevent heart attack if possible.
