Who is a Cardiologist?
Cardiology is a medical speciality which caters to ailments, diseases, and disorders related to the heart and its vessels. A Cardiologist is a trained doctor who helps diagnose and treat heart conditions through non-invasive techniques. Some diagnostic procedures that a cardiologist is trained to do are EKG, ECG, cardiac catheterisation, stress test, or treadmill tests. Cardiologists are also trained in performing medical procedures like placing stents and pacemakers. The best cardiologist in Delhi also provides medical management for heart issues like arrhythmias, high or low blood pressure.
When do you need a cardiologist?
One may need to visit a Cardiologist immediately if they experience symptoms like shortness of breath, pain in the chest or near the heart, swelling in the joints, ankle or legs, dizziness, weakness, and fatigue. If an individual is on pain medications for the heart and is still experiencing such symptoms, they should urgently get a consultation.
Individuals above the age of 55 should get regular preventive health checkups to identify cardiac issues before they get severe. Anybody with a family history of heart problems or a previous medical history of heart attack, heart failure, or disturbances in the heart rhythm should also seek regular check-ups and follow a healthy lifestyle.
What tests does a cardiologist recommend?
Tests like ECG and Echocardiogram can identify abnormal heart rhythms. Cardiac catheterisation can help to see the heart, it is functioning, and help relieve blockages. Not all cardiologists can perform cardiac catheterisation as it requires special training. Cardiologists help interpret diagnostic tests, the performance of the heart and diagnose the root cause of the problem. They are also trained to manage cardiac emergencies during trauma or in an emergency situation.
