redistribution

1. The matching of care personnel resources to the population's site of care. The term usually is used in discussing the maldistribution of in-hospital personnel compared with in-community personnel.
2. The return of blood flow to an ischemic segment of myocardium. During exercise, regions of the heart supplied by partially occluded arteries are deprived of blood, a condition that may foster angina pectoris. With rest, healthy blood flow to the affected areas is restored. Radionuclide agents (e.g., thallium-201 or sestamibi) can be used to demonstrate regions of the coronary circulation where this effect occurs, and aid in the diagnosis and management of ischemic heart disease.
