Description

Cardiologists are doctors who diagnose, assess and treat patients with diseases and defects of the heart and blood vessels (the cardiovascular system).

Cardiologists manage patients with conditions such as:

  • Angina (chest pain caused by narrowing of the coronary arteries)
  • Arrhythmias, eg atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat)
  • Heart murmurs due to heart valve disease
  • Cardiomyopathy (disease of the heart muscle) with heart failure including pulmonary
  • Oedema (accumulation of fluid)
  • Coronary artery thrombosis or myocardial infarction (heart attack) often associated with high blood pressure (hypertension) and high cholesterol
  • Diseases of the arteries (atherosclerosis, arteritis, atheroma)
  • Hole in the heart and other forms of congenital heart disease within adult life including transition from paediatric care and shared care of pregnant women with heart disease
