Cardiology is a medical specialization and a discipline of internal medicine involved with diseases and disorders of cardiovascular system. It carries the analysis and treatment of diseases such as electrophysiology, coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmia, congenital heart defects, valvular heart disease, and heart failure. Sub-specialization of the cardiology department comprises nuclear cardiology, interventional cardiology, echocardiography, and cardiac electrophysiology.
The medical professionals with specializations in cardiac system are known as cardiologists. They are liable for the medical supervision of different heart related diseases and disorders. Some of the procedures used by cardiologists to deal with cardiovascular disorders involve percutaneous coronary intervention, coronary artery bypass surgery, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, and stenting. These cardiovascular diseases can also be diagnosed using cardiac stress tests, blood tests, computed tomography or electrocardiography (ECG) or echocardiography, and magnetic resonance imaging procedures.
A cardiac surgeon is a medical practitioner specialized person in performing surgical procedures on the heart, its valves and structures, and the major arteries and veins around it. General cardiothoracic surgeons concentrate on all of the upper abdominal organs, comprising the heart, esophagus, and lungs.
While finding the symptoms associated with heart diseases, your physician refers you to a cardiologist.
A cardiologist can perform tests for an irregular heart rhythm or a heart murmur.
They usually cure patients who have already suffered from heart failure, heart attack, or other heart-associated disorders. They assist in deciding on angioplasty, heart catheterization, heart surgery, and stenting.
The cardiologist can suggest the best recommendations for reducing the risks of heart diseases.
It's better to visit a cardiologist even if you have no heart problem or associated symptoms if anyone has a family history of having heart-related problems or high cholesterol. Even if they have diabetes, if they are a smoker, or if they are practicing a new physical workout, they should visit the cardiologist.
