Cardiology
What Happens In Cardiology The cardiology department specializes in the diagnosis, management and treatment of heart disease. It offers a range of diagnostic services for heart disease including angiography, cardiac MRI scan, echocardiography, Holter monitoring, heart biopsy (myocardial biopsy), nuclear imaging, stress testing and tilt table testing. Treatment may involve the use of medication, diet adjustment and specialized surgery such as angioplasty with stent placement, heart bypass surgery or transmyocardial revascularization for patients with angina chest pain. Some hospitals have a specialized chest pain center which is a collaboration between cardiology and the emergency department to deal with patients presenting in an emergency in a rapid manner. After patients receive cardiology treatment they may be advised to attend cardiac rehabilitation to help with their recovery. Here, they will receive a personal exercise and eating plan and advice on stress management and physical therapy so they can return as soon as possible to regular activities. Some departments also run a preventive cardiology program working with people who are at risk of heart disease - those with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, as well as people who are obese and smoke - to help them to adopt healthier lifestyles. What Is Treated In Cardiology Congenital heart disease. Coronary heart disease. Heart failure. Angina pain. Arrhythmias: heart rhythm abnormalities. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Thoracic aortic aneurysm. Specialized treatments include heart transplant and heart valve repair and replacement. Type Of Doctors In Cardiology Cardiologist: A doctor trained in diagnosing, treating and preventing heart disease. A cardiologist is not a trained surgeon, but some do diagnostic tests such as cardiac catheterizations that require small skin incisions and some put in pacemakers. A heart surgeon is called a cardiac surgeon. Cardiology nurse: This type of nurse can work in different areas of cardiac care, including coronary care units (CCU), intensive care units (ICU), cardiac catheterization, surgery, cardiac surgery wards, cardiac medical wards, cardiovascular intensive care units (CVICU) and cardiac rehabilitation centers.
