A cardiologist is a specialist doctor that deals with the issues and conditions related to heart and blood vessels. A cardiologist specializes in the treatment and as well as prevention of heart diseases like heart attack, heart failure, rhythmic disturbances.
Doctors undergo extensive training after completing their MBBS to become a cardiologist.
What they do
When a general medical doctor notices unusual symptoms like shortness of breath and constant chest pains, the patient is referred to the cardiologist.
When a patient consults cardiologists, they examine the blood pressure, heart rate and review the medical history. Some conditions are identified by the symptoms and sometimes the patient has to take additional tests such as ECG, X-ray or blood tests. Some conditions may require specialized testing including
- Echocardiogram is a sound wave picture to view the structure of the heart and to observe the function of the heart.
- ECG is a recording done to record the activity to observe the abnormal heart rhythms
- Cardiac Catheterization is a test in which a small tube is inserted inside to capture pictures of heart to view the functioning of the heart.
Cardiologists can perform procedures like heart surgery, catheterization and angioplasty. They also help people in rehabilitation and treat people with heart diseases to live a normal life.
Not all the cardiologists perform surgery and tests like catheterizations. Cardiac surgeons are specialized and trained for this. Others specialize in the diagnosis and interpretation of echocardiograms and ECGs. Some specialize in the management of cholesterol and cardiac rehabilitation.
