What does a cardiologist do?
A cardiologist is a health care provider who can treat chest pain, high blood pressure and heart failure, heart valve problems, blood vessels and other heart and vascular problems. They can order tests such as electrocardiograms, echocardiograms and CT scans (computed tomography) to find out what is wrong. After their diagnosis, they can order medication, help start healthier exercises and eating habits or perform cardiac catheterization.
Your cardiologist will perform a physical examination and discuss your symptoms, medical history, and family history. It is important to consult your cardiologist if other people in your family have heart problems, as this may increase the likelihood that you will have a heart problem. Cardiologists are qualified to treat heart attacks, heart failure, heart valve disease, arrhythmias and high blood pressure. Cardiologists work in hospitals and private practices.
To diagnose, cardiologists can provide physical examinations, order tests – such as an electrocardiogram (ECG), blood tests, exercise tests – and perform tests. They can also prescribe medications, recommend lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, reduce stress levels and regulate weight. Cardiologists can perform procedures such as pacemaker implantation or cardiac catheter insertion.
