ABOUT CARDIOLOGY

Cardiology is a specialty of Medicine that deals with diagnosis and treatment of diseases and problems related with the heart and blood vessels – the Cardiovascular system. A medical doctor that specializes in Cardiology is called a Cardiologist.

The Cardiovascular system is complex and Cardiologists evaluate medical history and signs/symptoms of their patients. They may also recommend tests for a better diagnosis. Heart and related diseases can be managed using pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments. If surgery is needed, the Cardiologist will refer you to a Cardiovascular surgeon.

Cardiology is a broad field of Internal Medicine and some of the diseases managed include:

  • Coronary Artery Disease: hardening of arteries that supply nutrients and oxygen to the heart
  • Heart failure: when the heart is not working well
  • Abnormal Heart Rhythms: when the heart beats out of range or irregularly/abnormally
  • Heart Valve Disease: problems with one or more of the four exit valves of the heart.
  • Congenital Heart Disease: heart problems related to newborn babies. Sometimes symptoms appear later in adulthood.
  • Cardiomyopathies: diseases of the heart muscle.
  • Pericarditis: inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart.
