Cardiology CARDIOLOGY – Manmohini Health Care

Department

Cardiology is the branch of medical science which deals with the diseases of the heart and also the circulatory system. Physicians who specialized in this field are called as a cardiologist. Physicians who specialize in cardiac surgery are known as cardiothoracic surgeons or cardiac surgeons.

-The system includes treatment of congenital heart disease, coronary heart disease, valvular heart disease, heart failure, and electrophysiology.

-Diagnostic testing for heart diseases includes Electro-cardiography (ECG), Radiography, Echocardiography, Carotid ultrasound, and Lab tests.

-Tests used to check blocked arteries are Exercise treadmill test and stress echo.

 

Treatments in Cardiology:

  • Coronary angiography/ Heart catheterization

It is used to know the extent of blockage in the arteries. Catheterization provides information about the blood supply to the heart.

 

  • Angioplasty/ Stent:

It is to reopen the blocked arteries.

  • Pacemaker implantation:

A pacemaker is inserted to correct slow, irregular or abnormal heartbeats.

 

  • Cardiac defibrillator implantation:

A small device is implanted under the skin and connected to the heart to monitor the heart rate.

  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy:

A specialized pacemaker is used to re-coordinate the action of the left and right ventricles.

  • Cardiac rehabilitation:

This is to help the heart patient to adopt a healthier lifestyle. It may be recommended for up to 12 weeks.
