Cardiology

 

title

Dr. O.P. Chaudhary Hospital

Cardiology is the study and treatment of disorders of the heart and the blood vessels. A person with heart disease or cardiovascular disease may be referred to a cardiologist.

Cardiology is a branch of internal medicine. A cardiologist is not the same as a cardiac surgeon. A cardiac surgeon opens the chest and performs heart surgery.

A cardiologist specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular system. The cardiologist will carry out tests, and they may some do procedures, such as heart catheterizations, angioplasty, or inserting a pacemaker.

Heart disease relates specifically to the heart, while cardiovascular disease affects the heart, the blood vessels, or both.

Our Department of Cardiology provides inpatient care for patients with internal diseases with a focus on cardiovascular diseases. The Ward Unit provides services for the catheterization laboratory (invasive diagnosis, percutaneous coronary artery intervention), antiarrhythmic unit (cardiostimulation), interventional radiology department (diagnosis and peripheral arterial intervention, neuroradiology). It takes patients from the coronary unit after the stabilization of their vital functions.

It provides surgical treatments of IHD (ischemic heart disease) and heart valve diseases.

ECG

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a medical test that detects cardiac (heart) abnormalities by measuring the electrical activity generated by the heart as it contracts. The machine that records the patient's ECG is called an electrocardiograph.

2D Echo with Color Doppler

A 2-D (or two-dimensional) echocardiogram is capable of displaying a cross-sectional “slice” of the beating heart, including the chambers, valves and the major blood vessels that exit from the left and right ventricle. A Doppler echocardiogram measures the speed and direction of the blood flow within the heart.
