What is cardiology?
Cardiology is a specialized branch of internal medicine that is concerned with heart disorders. The basic functioning of the cardiovascular system includes the way the heart processes oxygen and nutrients in the blood, which is called coronary circulation. The circulation system consists of coronary arteries and coronary veins. There are a range of disorders of the cardiovascular system that are treated and studied under the field of cardiology.
Cardiology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of such conditions as congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, electrophysiology, heart failure and valvular heart disease. Subspecialties of the cardiology field include cardiac electrophysiology, echocardiography, interventional cardiology and nuclear cardiology.
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating diseases or conditions of the heart and blood vessels—the cardiovascular system. You might visit a cardiologist to learn about your risk factors about heart disease and find out more about what measures can be taken for better heart health. A diagnosis of heart or any vascular disease starts with the primary care doctor or general physician, who then refers you to a cardiologist (specialist). The cardiologist evaluates or diagnose the symptoms and the medical history only then recommends tests for a more definite diagnosis. Then, the cardiologist decides if the patient’s condition can be managed using medicines or other available treatments. If your cardiologist decides that you need surgery, he or she refers you to a cardiovascular surgeon, who specializes in operations on the heart, lungs, and blood vessels. You remain under the care of your cardiologist even when you are referred to other specialists.
