electrophysiology is a branch of cardiology that deals with the diagnosis and
treatment of heart rhythm disorders.The
test is performed by inserting catheters and then wire electrodes, which
measure electrical activity, through blood vessels that enter the heart.
Cardiology is a speciality that addresses heart conditions in babies [including
unborn babies], children and teenagers. Pediatric cardiologists specialize in
diagnosing and treating heart problems in children.
disease describes a range of conditions that affect your heart. It’s the
leading cause of death for several populations. While heart disease can be
deadly, it’s also preventable in most people. By adopting healthy lifestyle
habits early, you can potentially live longer with a healthier heart.
are doctors who diagnose, assess and treat patients with diseases and defects
of the heart and blood vessels. Much of the emphasis is on improving survival
rates and quality of life following heart attacks, heart failure or heart
toxicity is damage to the heart by harmful chemicals. Chemotherapy drugs are
toxins and can cause damage to your heart, which may be referred to as cardiac
toxicity. As a result of this damage, the heart is unable to pump enough blood
to supply the body with essential oxygen and nutrients.
surgery involves surgical operations performed on the heart under to correct
life-threatening conditions. The purpose of cardiac surgery is to improve the
quality of life of the patient and to extend the patient's lifespan.
It is the
prevention, identification and treatment of cardiovascular complications in
patients receiving cancer therapy and those who live as long-term survivors. Cardio-oncologists
are typically cardiologists who see cancer survivors or patients getting cancer
treatment who develop side effects that affect the heart.
regeneration is a broad effort that aims to repair irreversibly damaged heart
tissue with cutting-edge science, including stem cell and cell-free therapy. Reparative
tools have been engineered to restore damaged heart tissue and function using
the body's natural ability to regenerate.
vessels pass through every area of our bodies and so studying how they function
is important for treating all forms of human disease. This is involved in many
diverse functions, but the most important is transporting vital oxygen and
nutrients to your tissues and organs.
increases risk for abnormal heart function and other cardiovascular risk
factors. Obesity is intimately intertwined with multiple health conditions that
underlie cardiovascular disease including high blood pressure, diabetes, and
abnormal blood cholesterol.
