Cardiology and Advances in Cardiology

The Heart is a muscular organ in most animals. The pumps blood through blood vessels of the circulatory system. Blood provides the body with oxygen and nutrients, and the removal of metabolic wastes. In humans, Heart is located between the lungs middle compartment of the chest

Hypertension and Obesity

Hypertension is a major risk factor for stroke, myocardial infarction, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, peripheral vascular disease, cognitive decline, and premature death. Blood pressure is quantified as diastolic and systolic pressures measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). The diastolic pressure represents the pressure during ventricular relaxation in the diastole whereas the systolic pressure represents the peak pressure due to ventricular contraction during systole. Either or both pressures have specified upper limits of normal and elevation in either or both pressures are used to define hypertension. Hypertension is associated with a progressive rise in blood pressure, often culminating in a treatment-resistant state due to associated vascular and renal damage.

Clinical Case Reports

Cardiovascular disease is a global public health problem 30% of global mortality and 10% of global disease burden total of 58 a million deaths worldwide, 17 million were due to cardiovascular disease and, among them, 7.6 million coronary heart disease.  Myocardial infarction (MI) the five main manifestations of coronary heart disease, namely stable angina pectoris, heart failure, and sudden death. Phrase ‘acute coronary syndromes’ include unstable angina, non-ST-elevation MI, ST-elevation MI, and sudden cardiac death. World Health Organization was epidemiological monitoring, coding of clinical diagnosis, the validity of death certificates and disease classification.

Cardiac Arrhythmia

Arrhythmia is an abnormal heart rhythm. It feels like a fluttering or a brief pause. It may be so brief the does not change your overall heart rate (the number of times per minute that your heart beats), or it can because the heart rate to be too slow or too fast. The heart rate that is too fast; i.e. above 100 beats per minute in adults is called “tachycardia” and a heart rate that is too slow; i.e. below 60 beats per minute is called “bradycardia”. Many types of arrhythmia have no symptoms. When the symptoms are present these may include palpitations or feeling a pause between heartbeats.

Women’s Cardiology

Worldwide the number of women who have pre-existing cardiovascular disease or develop cardiac problems during the pregnancy is increased and, the lack of evidence-based data provides challenges for the treating physician. Cardiovascular disease in pregnancy is the complex topic as women can present either pre or post-partum, due to pre-existing heart diseases such as the operating on or unoperated on congenital heart disease, valvular heart disease, chronic hypertension, or familial dilated cardiomyopathy    Women often present with the symptoms and signs of acute heart failure.

Cardiac Nursing

Cardiac/ cardiovascular nurses are registered nurses who specialize in providing care for people who have heart and blood vessel diseases. Cardiovascular nurses among the most sought after health care professions. Although most cardiovascular nurses work in hospitals, they offer a wide of services in multiple settings.

Cardiac Surgery

Cardiothoracic surgery is the specialty involved with the treatment of diseases affecting organs within the thorax, principally the heart, lungs, and esophagus. It is a relatively young specialty that has grown rapidly since the Second World War successful open-heart procedure using the heart-lung machine was performed. The  Procedures are often lengthy and complex, requiring support from advanced forms of technology during surgery and intensive therapy for the patient after surgery.

Pathophysiology of the Cardiovascular System

Cardiovascular disease defined as any serious, abnormal condition of the heart. Cardiovascular disease includes coronary heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, congenital heart disease, and endocarditis.

Cardiac Remodeling

Cardiac remodeling is the heart’s size and shape that occur in response to cardiac disease or cardiac damage. When doctors talk about “remodeling,” they are usually talking about the left ventricle, though occasionally this term is applied to other cardiac chambers. Doctors can assess whether cardiac remodeling is present, and can follow the extent of remodeling over time, with imaging studies that allow them to assess the size, shape, and function of the left ventricle.

Cardiac Toxicity

Cardiotoxicity is a general term used to define "toxicity that affects the heart". A growing body of researches is now studying cardiovascular events associated with chemotherapy, however, a clear definition of cardiotoxicity and the certain mechanisms involved are lacking. This definition refers to a direct effect of the chemotherapy on the entire cardiovascular system, but also to an indirect effect due to a chromogenic status or to hemodynamic flow alteration. A committee of the cardiac review and evaluation supervising trastuzumab clinical trials clinically defined chemotherapy-induced

Cardiac Oncology

Cardio-oncology is a rapidly growing field aimed at minimizing the effects of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in cancer survivors. Patients are assessed at the baseline to define the risk of cardiotoxicity and followed closely during and after the chemotherapy to assess for early signs or symptoms of cardiovascular disease.

Echo-cardiogram

The electrical impulse passes through your heart, electrical currents have created that spread through your body and reach the surface of your skin. But they can be picked up and graphed as an electrocardiogram or ECG, simply a recording of the flow of the electrical current through the heart. This is a common test used to detect problems in the heart. You've probably seen one if you've ever watched a television drama based in a hospital, because when one of your favorite characters 'flatlined,' that meant that the ECG was no longer detecting an electrical charge and you heard that familiar flatline 'beeeeep' of the ECG monitor.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathies are diseases of the heart muscle. A contemporary definition for cardiomyopathy is a myocardial disorder in which the heart muscle is structurally and functionally abnormal in the absence of coronary artery disease, hypertension, valvular disease, and congenital heart disease sufficient to explain the observed myocardial abnormality. Cardiomyopathies include a variety of myocardial disorders that manifest with various structural and functional phenotypes and are frequently genetic. Although some have defined cardiomyopathy to include myocardial disease caused by known cardiovascular causes, current major society definitions of cardiomyopathy exclude heart disease secondary to such cardiovascular disorders.

Heart failure & Cardiac Transplant

Heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome of symptoms and signs that suggest impairment of heart a pump supporting physiological circulation.  Demonstration of objective evidence of cardiac abnormalities is necessary for the diagnosis of heart failure to be made.

The term ‘specialist’ is applicable to a wide range of healthcare. Term specialist is used in relation to establishing the diagnosis of heart failure through non-invasive procedures and to taking the decisions on the management of heart failure syndrome and its multiple causes.
