Diagnosis of cardiac diseases
Myocardial infarction (also known as a heart attack) occurs when blood flow to the heart is blocked.
It occurs when the heart muscle does not receive the necessary blood, usually caused when one or more of the heart’s arteries are blocked or narrowed.
Atrial fibrillation is an uncoordinated functioning of the right atrium and the left atrium.
It is the term used to name high blood pressure. High pressure is determined by the amount of blood the heart is pumping, and by the amount of resistance to blood flow in the arteries.
Unfortunately, diabetes can contribute to heart disease. So if you experience symptoms of heart problems and are diabetic, you should see a cardiologist.
Congenital heart disease.
Congenital heart disease is a heart problem that may have occurred when the heart was forming or during birth.
Coronary heart disease.
Coronary heart disease is a term used to refer to the accumulation of plaque in the arteries of the heart, which as a consequence could lead to a heart attack.
Peripheral vascular disease.
This occurs due to the narrowing of the vessels that are responsible for carrying blood to the arms, legs, kidneys, or stomach.
