What is cardiology?
Internal medicine has a branch called cardiology. A cardiologist and a cardiac surgeon are not the very things. A cardiac surgeon performs heart surgery by opening the chest.
A cardiologist is a doctor who specializes in the analysis and treatment of cardiovascular disorders. The cardiologist will do testing and maybe perform operations including heart catheterizations, angioplasty, or pacemaker implantation.
When would I require the services of a cardiologist?
The following signs and symptoms may suggest a heart problem:
Patients who have suffered a heart attack, heart failure, or other heart disorders are frequently treated by them. They aid in the decision-making process for heart surgery, heart catheterization, and angioplasty, and stenting procedures.
A cardiologist can help with the following heart diseases:
Atrioventricular Fibrillation (AFib) is a condition in which the heart.
What exactly does cardiology entail?
A cardiologist will do a physical examination and analyze the patient’s medical history.
They may perform tests and evaluate their weight, heart, lungs, blood pressure, and blood vessels.
An interventional cardiologist may perform angioplasties, stenting, valvuloplasties, congenital heart defect repairs, and coronary thrombectomies.
Ambulatory ECG monitors a person’s cardiac rhythms while they exercise or go about their daily activities. Small metal electrodes are adhered to the chest and wired to a Holter monitor, recording the heart rhythms.
An exercise test, often known as a stress test, depicts the changes in cardiac rhythm that occur during rest and exertion. It assesses the heart’s capabilities and limitations.
Electrophysiology of the heart
Cardiology’s specialization of cardiac electrophysiology. The doctor examines how electric currents in the heart muscle tissue work, how they propagate, and what the current pattern means.

Your cardiologist may recommend a pacemaker.
A catheter is put into a vein near the top of the thigh for an electrophysiology study (EPS) of the heart. It makes its way to nature, guided by fluoroscopy. The catheter measures the electrical signals within the heart.
Echocardiography examines how blood is pumped via your heart’s chambers and valves. Electrodes are used to assess your heart rhythm, and ultrasound equipment is used to see how blood travels through your heart in an echocardiogram. Your doctor can use echocardiography to diagnose heart problems.
