    There are several coronary diseases that human beings can suffer from, which in themselves generate health deterioration and can lead to the development of other diseases that diminish the quality of life. Ischemic diseases are unique in that they are evidenced by blockages generated by the accumulation of fat that impedes circulation, triggering heart and brain-related problems. By means of fractional Brownian motion in relation to Hurst's parameter, an analysis of a data of 137 patients aged between 30 and 71 years, who present some type of ischemic disease such as mixed, restricted, effort angina and angina pectoris, is performed. The data used was European, which is found in the PhysioNet open-access medical research data repository, managed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Computational Physiology Laboratory. This data shows the Hurst coefficient calculations associated with each type of ischemic heart disease.
