Common Cardiology Conditions


Coronary Heart Disease - It’s a common heart condition caused by blockage or narrowing of the blood vessels in the heart.
Heart Failure - A condition in which the heart does not pump enough blood to meet the body's needs.
Arrhythmia - Arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat. It occurs when the electrical signals that coordinate the heartbeat do not work properly.
Heart Attack - A heart attack occurs when an artery that supplies blood and oxygen to the heart is blocked due to the buildup of fatty deposits over time.
Coronary Artery Disease - It is the buildup of plaque in the arteries by narrowing or blocking the supply of oxygen-rich blood to the heart.

Frequently Asked Questions:


A cardiologist is a doctor who treats and manages diseases related to heart and blood vessels including various cardiovascular conditions.


A person can visit a cardiologist when he has symptoms of heart disease such as an increase in the rate of heartbeat, extreme fatigue, increase in cholesterol, sweating and restlessness, and changes in the level of blood pressure.


The death of heart muscle tissue caused by a sudden blockage of the arteries is referred to as a heart attack. It is caused by the formation of clots in a buildup of cholesterol known as plaque, in the arteries. The most common symptom includes pain in the chest, arms, and neck. Current technology allows for the reopening of blocked arteries in order to preserve heart muscle and function. As a result, it is critical that you see a doctor as soon as you notice chest pain or other symptoms.


Common symptoms are

    Chest pain and sweating

    Discomfort in the chest

    Weakness

    Light-headedness

    Pain in the jaw, neck, or back

    Pain in the arms or shoulders

    Breathlessness


The risk factors of heart disease are:

    High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

    Stroke

    High Blood Cholesterol

    Diabetes

    Obesity

    Physical Inactivity


An echocardiogram is also known as echocardiography which is a type of ultrasound for the heart. It provides medical imaging of the heart using ultrasound waves.


Cholesterol is a fat-like substance produced by the liver which is also found in some foods such as meat and dairy products. The body requires some amount of cholesterol to function properly. But too much cholesterol in your blood increases your risk of coronary artery disease.


Cholesterol is a type of lipid, fat-like substance, which is required by the body in moderation for good health. It is found in the body's cells. It moves throughout the body in the blood.


A high level of triglyceride is harmful because it causes arteries to harden and makes the arterial wall thickened. Blocked arteries increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, and other heart diseases. High levels of triglyceride might also cause acute inflammation of the pancreas.


Arrhythmia is a condition of an irregular heartbeat or a fast or slow heartbeat. It occurs because of poor performance of electrical impulses of the heart. It can be treated with some medications, medical procedures, or surgery.


A congestive heart failure is a long-term condition in which the heart does not pump blood as efficiently as it should. Heart failure can occur when the heart cannot pump the blood. Shortness of breath, fatigue, swollen legs, and a rapid heartbeat are some of the symptoms.


In general, open-heart surgery for adults may cost around Rs. 1.5 lakh to Rs. 2.25 lakhs and for children, open-heart surgery may cost around Rs. 1.25 lakh. The price may vary with Hospitals and location.
