What is a Cardiologist? 

A cardiologist has special training and skills in discovering, treating and preventing diseases of the heart and associated blood vessels, in other words the cardio-vascular system. They sometimes work alone, other times in private group practices. Many have a special teaching interest, working at prestigious universities and teaching hospitals where they also carry out research and look after patients.

Cardiologists work with adult patients, paediatric cardiology being a separate speciality all of its own. A lot of the everyday emphasis is placed on improving the survival rates and quality of life of patients after heart attacks, heart failures and disorders of the heart’s rhythm. This essential speciality sits right at the cutting edge of innovative new therapies and technologies, emergency procedures and treatments, and also involves palliative care at the end of a cardiac patient’s life.

When to see a Cardiologist?

If your GP feels you may be suffering from a significant heart or heart and vein-related condition, they might refer you direct to a cardiologist. You might be experiencing shortness of breath, chest pains, even dizzy spells, and this will require tests. You may have a heart murmur or an ECG change that merits specialist attention. If so your cardiologists can help you return to a full and useful life. They can counsel you in the risks you face and how to prevent heart disease, as well as treating heart attacks, heart failure, and serious heart rhythm issues.

What procedures can you find at a Cardiology clinic? 

What should you expect at a cardiology clinic?

You will probably be referred by your GP or family doctor. Your cardiologist will ask questions and review your medical history in detail. They might carry out a physical examination, including blood pressure, weight, heart, lungs, and blood vessels. They might take an ECG, X-ray, or blood test, and potentially carry out more sophisticated testing if required since every heart case is unique. They can also recommend heart-led changes to your diet and lifestyle.
