What is a Cardiologist? 

The cardio-vascular system – in other words the heart plus the associated veins and arteries – is a cardiologist’s speciality, and they have a wide range of training and skills in the discipline. They’re experts in establishing the nature of, treating and preventing heart diseases, as well as vein issues and artery problems in and around the heart. While a cardiologist often works alone, they can be a member of a dedicated heart health team in a private group practice. Research is sometimes part of their role, with some working in respected universities and teaching hospitals.

Australian cardiologists care for and work with adult patients, simply because paediatric cardiology – cardiology for children – is a separate speciality. Much of their work involves diagnosing problems then working to improve the survival rates and quality of life of people who have suffered from a heart attack, have heart failure, suffer a disorder in the rhythm of the heart like arrhythmia, or need end-of-life palliative care because of a heart condition. None of us can survive without a working heart, so as you can imagine this is a speciality that sits right at the cutting edge of medicine, rich in new developments, technologies and treatments.

When to see a Cardiologist?

Your first stop with a heart issue is probably your family doctor, who will refer you on to a cardiologist if they find you have a heart or heart and vein related condition that needs treatment. If you’re having dizziness, are short of breath or have chest pains, this will mean you may need to have some tests done to figure out what’s going on. Heart murmurs and changes to ECG tests are also signs that something isn’t quite right. Your chosen private Melbourne cardiologist can explain the risks you’re facing as well as advise you about how to avoid heart disease. They can treat heart attacks, heart failure and serious heart rhythm issues, and may refer you for heart-related surgery if necessary.

What conditions does a Cardiologist treat?

A cardiologist treats a wide range of different heart and related problems:

  • Angina
  • Arrhythmia (Irregular Heartbeat)
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Chest Pain
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Heart Attack
  • Heart Murmurs
  • Heart Muscle Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Pulmonary Hypertension

What procedures can you find at a Cardiology clinic? 

  • Angioplasty
  • ECG (Electrocardiogram)
  • Echocardiogram
  • Calcium Coronary Score
  • Fetal Cardiology
  • Video Consultation

What should you expect at a cardiology clinic?

Your chosen cardiologist will quiz you about all sorts of aspects of your life and health, including taking a full medical history. They may make a careful physical examination to establish the details of your condition or find out the facts they need to make an accurate diagnosis. Your blood pressure and weight, the state of your lungs and heart, and the health of your blood vessels can all be tested, and you might be given an ECG, X-ray, or blood test.

If your cardiologist needs more information, sophisticated testing could be their next step, since every patient is unique. If they find out you could change areas of your lifestyle to improve the health of your heart and cardiovascular system, they’ll make expert recommendations for you to follow.
