Cardiology Department in Cherkasy
According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in the world. Their danger is that they can progress unnoticed, so early diagnosis and treatment will help maintain healthy heart and blood vessels. The cardiologist at the medical center "DoctorPRO" in Cherkassy prescribes prevention, diagnoses and treats diseases of the cardiovascular system.
What does a cardiologist treat?
A cardiologist is a single-discipline specialist who deals with the treatment of heart and vascular diseases. At the medical center "DoctorPRO" we treat and rehabilitate patients with the following:
- coronary heart disease and angor pectoris;
- diffuse and postinfarction cardiosclerosis;
- I–III degree cardiac insufficiency;
- I–III degree idiopathic hypertensia;
- symptomatic hypertension;
- vegetovascular dystonia;
- atrial fibrillation and extrasystolic arrhythmia.
The cardiologist also manages patients who underwent heart surgery (coronary artery bypass grafting, stenting, implantation of cardiac pacemaker) and patients who have had inflammatory heart diseases.
With some cardiovascular pathologies, for example, with acute myocardial infarction, acute pericarditis, collapse, you need to call the ambulance and be treated in a hospital.
What symptoms do cardiac diseases have?
Symptoms of heart and vascular diseases are diverse – from evening fatigue to fainting. If you experience the following symptoms of heart disease, contact your cardiologist:
- chest pain that spreads to the left arm, scapula, jaw;
- rapid fatigability;
- faintness episodes;
- edema of lower limbs;
- feeling of abnormal heart rhythms;
- muscle spasms;
- numbness of definite parts of the body.
Symptoms of cardiovascular disease cannot be ignored. Slightly perceptible chest pains in a few days can pass into angor pectoris or myocardial infarction, and edema of the lower extremities may indicate the development of heart failure. Consult a cardiologist for advice and treatment.
What does a cardiologist do at the appointment?
The cardiologist begins with interviewing – so he determines the symptoms and the dynamics of their development. After collecting the anamnesis, the consultation with the cardiologist continues with a physical examination – the doctor listens to the heart, measures the pulse with a pulse oximeter and blood pressure. However, to get a more accurate and detailed picture, you need to undergo a heart examination.
What tests does a cardiologist refer to?
To diagnose cardiovascular diseases, a cardiologist refers to laboratory and instrumental diagnostic methods. Laboratory tests include a general and biochemical blood test. They can be used to determine, for example, whether there are markers of acute myocardial infarction in the blood. Instrumental methods include electrocardiography, echocardiography, dopplerography of arteries and veins, 24-hour Holter ECG monitoring and others. These methods make it possible to establish organic and functional disorders of the heart and blood vessels, for example, heart ultrasound examination helps to detect the thickening of myocardial wall, whereas ECG helps to write a conclusion about the heart rhythm disorder.
