We provide professional support in Cardiology.
Today, the cardiology unit, which is located in almost
all hospitals and health institutions as a department, is concerned with the
diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to the heart and circulatory
systems. Diagnosis and treatment of individuals who complain of symptoms
such as shortness of breath, palpitations, fainting, fatigue symptoms, edema,
chest pains are performed by specialist cardiologists in the cardiology
department of hospitals. In Turkey, approximately 175 thousand people die
every year due to heart diseases, and 10% of the patients die after heart
attacks that do not show any symptoms. For this reason, individuals over
the age of 40 should apply to the cardiology departments of hospitals at
certain intervals and undergo certain screening and tests.
Diagnosis, treatment and surgical operations of many
different diseases, especially heart failure, are performed in the cardiology
department. Some of these diseases are
Peripheral arterial disorders,
acute coronary syndrome,
Ischemic heart diseases,
congenital heart diseases,
Heart rhythm disorders are among the diseases that are
diagnosed and treated in the cardiology department.
In addition, heart failures in the fields of medicine
such as endocrinology and nephrology and developing due to high blood pressure,
heart valve diseases that occur and develop together with congenital or various
diseases are among the diseases diagnosed and treated in the cardiology
Today, the Cardiology department, which deals with many
different diseases as a department, has gained a significant momentum thanks to
the researches, information sharing and developing technology in this field in
recent years, and has enabled the home department to become a department with
many sub-branches. The formation of new sub-branches depending on the
development was instrumental in the increase in the number of physicians
working on the department, and the creation of new diagnosis and treatment
methods was ensured. The fact that approximately 16 million people die
every year in the world as a result of heart diseases is an important example
of the importance of cardiology departments.
Cardiology units, which aim to minimize the risks with
early diagnosis and correct treatment, like other diseases, recommend that
individuals who think that they have problems with such diseases should have a
check-up for certain periods.
Patients who apply to the cardiology unit are first
subjected to some methods to determine whether the disease exists or at what
level. The first and most important of these is the electrocardiography
test. Specialist cardiologists, who determine the heart rhythm, the
condition of the vessels carrying blood to the heart, and the structural changes
in the muscles with electrodes attached to the breasts, provide different data
to be obtained with the application of cardiac ultrasound if needed.
The methods applied in the later stages of the treatment
are shaped according to the doctor’s request. When it is thought that
there is any problem in the veins, effort tests are one of the methods that
provide a clearer understanding of the patient’s condition. After
measuring the patient’s blood pressure and pulse before the test, electrodes
connected to different parts of the body are connected to the effort test
machine. While the patient was walking on a straight road, the ramp and
walking speed gradually increased, leading to possible cardiac problems.
Physicians, who diagnose diseases related to the
cardiovascular systems of individuals with different methods and different
devices, decide on the treatment method with drug applications or surgical
operations according to the condition of the disease. Physicians who are
experts in cardiology, during diagnostic applications,
Holter monitor (Portable ECG device)
It uses different devices, such as an exercise EKG.
General patient services and intensive care units in
hospitals and health institutions are the departments where patients are
treated according to the patient’s condition and in line with the physician’s
demands. Patients who may require emergency intervention are treated
around the clock, depending on monitors, and their heart rhythms, pulse and
blood pressure, and variations in blood oxygen values are monitored 24 hours a day. The treatment phase after the
examinations should be applied in a complete and regular manner in accordance
with the advice of the doctors, ensuring that the patient’s life comfort
becomes permanent. Poor living conditions, drinking, smoking habits, poor
diet, sedentary lifestyle habits damage the heart and circulatory systems.
