Q.3 What treatment do cardiologists provide?

Ans. A cardiologist is a healthcare provider who can treat chest pain, high blood pressure, and heart failure, as well as problems with your heart valves, blood vessels, and other heart and vascular issues. A cardiologist will do a physical exam and discuss your symptoms, medical history, and family history with you. They can order tests like electrocardiograms, echocardiograms and CTs (computed tomography) to find out what’s wrong. With their diagnosis, they can order medicine, help you start a healthier exercise and eating habits, or do cardiac catheterization.

Q.4 When to see a cardiologist?

Ans. Your primary care provider may refer you to a cardiologist if you have a problem with your heart or blood vessels that needs extra care. You may need to see a cardiologist if you are experiencing pain in your chest, dizziness or shortness of breath. Your cardiologist may work with you for a long time as they monitor your condition.

Q.5 What should I expect during a cardiologist appointment?

Ans. During a cardiologist appointment, the doctor will typically review your medical history, ask about any symptoms you are experiencing, and perform a physical examination. They may order diagnostic tests such as an electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram, stress test, or blood work to gather more information about your heart health. Based on the findings, the cardiologist will discuss the diagnosis, and treatment options, and provide recommendations for further management or follow-up.

Q.6 Can a cardiologist help with lifestyle changes for better heart health?

Ans. Yes, cardiologists play a crucial role in guiding patients towards lifestyle modifications that promote better heart health. They can provide recommendations on dietary changes, exercise routines, smoking cessation, stress management, and weight management. Additionally, they may prescribe medications to manage risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. Cardiologists often work in conjunction with other healthcare professionals, such as dieticians or cardiac rehabilitation specialists, to provide comprehensive care.

Q.7 Can a cardiac surgeon carry out surgery?

Ans. No, since they do not perform procedures or surgeries, general cardiologists may be involved in the patient's long-term care.
