A cardiologist is simply a doctor who is an expert at diagnosing and treating heart-related diseases or conditions. They are also responsible for helping patients diagnosed with such diseases manage them as well as possible. So if you want to learn about your risk factors for heart disease, the best person to speak with is a cardiologist. They will tell you all that you need to know about the risk factors, in addition to telling you measures that you can take to keep your heart healthy.
To carry out their duties, cardiologists often conduct physical exams in the course of the diagnosis. In some cases, they may recommend that patients take specific tests like an electrocardiogram (EKG), computed tomography, blood tests, magnetic resonance imaging, and cardiac stress tests. They then interpret these tests to decide on the patient’s heart condition.
After the heart condition has been diagnosed, the cardiologists offer treatment that includes a prescription of medications and recommendations for lifestyle changes. They also perform specific procedures where and when necessary. These procedures may include implanting a pacemaker, coronary artery bypass surgery, or inserting a cardiac catheter. It all depends on the patient’s condition at the time.
