Cardiology is the care of adults and children with various forms of heart and blood vessel problems. Patients who are critically ill and very sick, are admitted to the Coronary Care Unit. This makes it swift and easy for patients with heart problems to get immediate medical care.

  • Ischemic heart disease where the blood supply to the heart is poor. Patients present symptoms of angina, shortness of breath, swollen ankles and such.
  • Heart failure – when the heart does not work properly. People may get tired easily experience shortness of breath, swollen ankles etc
  • Valvular heart disease – the valves in the heart have an opening that is either too small or the valves leak.
  • Hypertension – high blood pressure (Increased BP).
  • Cardiac rhythm abnormalities – the heart beats too fast or too slow or irregularly.
  • Congenital heart problems – when someone is born with heart problems.
  • Vascular problems – the blood vessels in the body can become narrow or blocked. This often causes pain. Cardiology can open some of these blocks and so make the blood supply better.
