Cardiologists or heart specialists are trained in diagnosing and treating diseases of the heart and blood vessels, the car- diovascular system. The cardiologist will carry out tests, and they may perform some procedures, such as heart catheter- izations, angioplasty, or inserting a pacemaker.
Whether the cardiologist sees you in the office or in the hospital, he or she will review your medical history and perform a physical examination which may include checking your blood pressure, weight, heart, lungs, and blood vessels.
Some problems may be diagnosed by your symptoms and the doctor’s findings when you are examined. You may need ad- ditional tests such as an ECG, X-ray, or blood test. Other problems will require more specialized testing. Your cardiologist may recommend lifestyle changes or medicine. Each patient’s case is unique.
If you’re suffering from any of the following symptoms you need to have an online consultation with a heart specialist right away-
Coronary artery disease, also known as coronary heart disease, is the most common type of heart disease. It develops when the arteries that supply blood to the heart become clogged with plaque. As a result, the blood supply reduces, and the heart receives less oxygen and fewer nutrients. In time, the heart muscle weakens, and there is a risk of heart failure and arrhyth- mias.
A person with a congenital heart defect is born with a heart problem. This could be heart valves not opening properly or leak- ing blood, a hole in the wall between either the lower chambers or the upper chambers of the heart or even the heart valve is missing.
Arrhythmia refers to an irregular heartbeat. It occurs when the electrical impulses that coordinate the heartbeat do not work properly. As a result, the heart may beat too fast, too slowly, or erratically. Brief changes in heart rhythm are not a cause for concern, but treatment will be necessary if they persist, as this can affect the heart’s function.
Also known as myocardial infarction, a heart attack involves an interruption of the blood flow to the heart. This can damage or destroy part of the heart muscle. The most common cause of heart attack is plaque, a blood clot, or both in a coronary artery. It can also occur if an artery suddenly narrows or spasms.
When a person has heart failure, the heart is still working but not as well as it should. Heart failure can result from untreated coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, arrhythmias, and other conditions. These conditions can affect the heart’s abil- ity to pump properly. Heart failure can be life-threatening, but seeking early treatment for heart-related conditions can help prevent complications.
