What is cardiology?

Cardiology is the branch of medicine in which cardiologists investigate, diagnose, prevent and treat problems with the heart. This includes:

  • Coronary artery disease, angina, heart attacks
  • Heart failure
  • Disorders of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathies)
  • Congenital heart defects, such as ‘hole in the heart’ and heart murmurs
  • Problems with the heartbeat: tachycardia (a fast heart rate), bradycardia (a slow heart rate) and arrhythmia (an irregular heartbeat)
  • Heart valve problems and abnormalities.

  • Electrocardiograms (ECGs): stress ECG and ambulatory ECG
  • Blood tests: troponin and other cardiac enzymes, urea and electrolytes, full blood count, BNP
