When would I need a cardiologist?

 

Cardiology deals with heart health.

If a person has symptoms of a heart condition, their physician may refer them to a cardiologist.

Symptoms that can indicate a heart problem include:

  • shortness of breath

  • dizziness

  • chest pains

  • changes in heart rate or rhythm

  • high blood pressure

A cardiologist can carry out tests for a heart murmur or an abnormal heart rhythm. 

They often treat patients who have had a heart attack, heart failure, or other heart problems. They help make decisions about heart surgery, heart catheterization, and angioplasty and stenting.
