What is a cardiologist?

A cardiologist is a doctor who specializes in the cardiovascular system - which includes the heart and blood vessels. Cardiologists are experts in the anatomy and health of the heart, the cardiovascular system, and a wide range of heart diseases. They are sometimes referred to as heart doctors.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US, and cardiologists are on the frontlines of the fight against this condition. They treat heart disease as well as many other related issues, like high blood pressure, blocked arteries, heart attacks, heart valve disease, arrhythmia, and heart failure. They also promote heart-healthy habits with their patients.

Board-certified cardiologists must complete undergraduate training, medical school, a residency in internal medicine, and a cardiology fellowship. Once they have completed their education (which takes about 15 years!), cardiologists earn certification from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).

What can a cardiologist diagnose and treat?

Cardiologists treat a wide spectrum of heart diseases and vascular diseases, which include:

Heart and blood vessel disease (Cardiovascular disease): The term "heart disease" encompasses several conditions that include heart attack, stroke, heart failure, arrhythmia, and heart valve problems.

Heart attack: Heart attacks occur when fat, cholesterol and other substances block arteries. Heart attacks can be fatal. Signs of a heart attack include pressure, pain or aching in your chest and arms, nausea, cold sweat, fatigue, shortness of breath, sudden dizziness, and/or feeling lightheaded. If you think you are having a heart attack you need to act immediately.

Stroke: A blockage of blood supply to the brain that can cause major bodily damage and may result in death.

Congestive heart failure: A gradual weakening of the heart muscle that can get worse over time and may lead to a heart attack.

Arrhythmia: When the electrical impulses that regulate heart rhythm don’t work properly. It can feel like a racing heart, or a fluttering and can happen in addition to palpitations.

Heart palpitations: Skipping heartbeats, pounding, rapid heartbeats, or beating too fast.

Coronary artery disease: When the blood vessels that supply blood, oxygen, and nutrients to your heart become damaged or diseased.

Hypertension: High blood pressure.

Atrial fibrillation: An irregular heartbeat that may increase your chances of getting a stroke.

What procedures can a cardiologist perform?

Cardiologists can perform a wide range of procedures, including:

  • Ablation: A heart that beats too quickly, palpitates, or has arrhythmia can benefit from ablation. This procedure involves ablating the troubled area, causing scar tissue to develop which helps prevent short-circuiting. If you suffer from tachycardia, a condition that causes your heart to beat around 100 beats per minute or higher, you may also benefit from ablation.

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG): An EKG machine records the electrical signals in your heart. It may be used to check for abnormal heart rhythms, detect heart attack, or check up on heart disease treatments including pacemakers and stents.

  • Echocardiogram (ECG): A machine that uses sound waves to create an image of your heart.

  • Angioplasty: A procedure that threads a thin tube through a blood vessel in the groin or arm to restore blood flow to an artery.

What are the symptoms of heart disease?

Heart disease symptoms can vary from patient to patient.

If you feel any chest pain, faint, or have shortness of breath call 911. These may be symptoms of a heart attack.

Common types of heart disease and their related symptoms include:

  • Heart disease in your blood vessels: Pain, pressure, tightness, or general discomfort in the chest.

  • Heart defect: Bluish or pale gray skin color, swollen legs, eyes, or abdomen.

  • Heart disease caused by abnormal heartbeats: Fainting, dizziness, chest pain or discomfort, fast heartbeat, slow heartbeat, feeling lightheaded, and/or a fluttering in your chest.

  • A diseased heart muscle (cardiomyopathy): Feeling breathless even at rest, swollen legs, ankles, and feet, fatigue, fluttering or pounding heartbeats, dizziness, fainting, and/or feeling lightheaded.

  • Heart infection: Fever, skin rash, changes in your heartbeat, shortness of breath, fatigue or weakness, swelling of the legs or abdomen, and/or a dry persistent cough.

  • Valvular heart disease: pain in the chest, fatigue, shortness of breath, unusual heartbeat, swollen feet or ankles, and/or fainting.
