Transcript: Cardiology What is it? Cardiology is a medical specialty dealing with disorders of the heart. Terms Artery A vessel that carries blood away from the heart. Aortic Relating to the aorta, which is the major vessel that carries oxygenated blood from the heart to the body Atrium The chamber of the heart that collects blood returning from the rest of the body Vein A vessel that carries blood towards the heart Ventricle The chamber of the heart that is responsible for pumping blood out to the rest of the body. How much schooling It takes about 12 years for all of your schooling, including postgraduate school and medical school. How much does a cardiologist get paid? A cardiologist gets paid $400,000 a year. Where is a school that offers this program? Yale University and the University of Iowa What kind of courses do you need to get into Cardiology? physics : a natural science dealing with matter and it's motion. Biology : A natural science of the study of life and living organisms. Mathematics : The study of quantity, space, structure, and change. English : The structure of words, phrases, clauses, and sentences. Chemistry : The science of matter, it's properties, structure, composistion, behavior, reactions, and change.

The Pathology Ventricular Arrhythmia Ventricular Arrythmia Types Types of VT Non-Reentrant VT * Ventricular pmc fire at higher rate, prevent SA node from firing ---> ventricular beats drive the HR * Due to: - Drugs (Amphetamine, cocaine etc) - Electrolyte imbalance - Myocardial ischemia in ventricle Reentrant VT (more common type) * Dead cells in myocardial tissue ---> Scar formation --> conduction signals go around scar --> Reentry Risk factors & signs Why? Risk & Symptoms Risk factors * Age * Cardiac disease (eg CMP, VD, post mi) * Electrolyte imbalance (Hyperkalemia) * Drugs (Cocaine) * Pericardial inflammation Symptoms * Chest pain * Shortness of breath * Dizziness * Syncope * Low BP Diagnosis * Serum electrolytes - K+ - Ca++ - Mg+ * ECG - Rate: >100 bpm - P-waves: Absent or Present- - T-waves: Large - QRS complex: Wide (>0,12 s) Diagnosis Treatment TREATMENT MEDICATION * Beta-blockers * Amiodarone * NDHP Ca++ ch.

Transcript: What is a Cardiologist? -Focus on continuing care of patients. What does a day in a life of a cardiologist look like? First, they walk in their office. Then, they see their first patient of the day. After they meet their first patient, they ask about symptoms that the patient is exhibiting. Once the symptoms are known, the doctor starts to diagnose the patient by thinking how the symptoms relate to a disease. If needed, medical tests such as an echocardiogram or an angiogram are done in order to diagnose the patient. When the doctor arrives at a diagnosis, they tell the patient what it is and how to treat it. The doctor then advises the patient which treatment to take. Treatments include the usage of medication, a change in lifestyle, or even a medical procedure. The doctor will do this for about 4 or 5 more patients. The doctor might even take part in a procedure such as a radiofrequency ablation. First, the person completes undergraduate school (4 years) with an emphasis on science-related classes. Then, the pre-med student goes through medical school for four years. Then the doctor goes through a fellowship (2 years) with cardiologists to know the specifics of the field. Then the student becomes the cardiologist. What colleges offer these programs? Many colleges offer undergraduate programs in science, and even some offer pre-medicine programs. There also exist many medical schools in the United States, as well as the world. Once completing medical school, the medical school arrange a residency for you. A residency is completed at the hospital that the medical school chose for you. A cardiology fellowship is offered at many hopsitals. A radiofrequency ablation is used to treat SVT (Superventricular Tacchychardia) The success rate of a radiofrequency is over 90 percent. I personally have had this procedure, and I had no complications from it. Current Research being done in Cardiology... Dysfunctions in the diabetic heart. Risk factors for heart disease. The effects of kidney disease on the heart. or non-invasive (echocardiographies) A cardiologist normally sees patients with heart issues. "Radiofrequency Ablation".

Cardiology is the field of medicine that studies and treats the heart. - A Cardiologist is a doctor that deals with heart problems. Then the post-medical student goes through a residency (3 years) at a hospital. What is the success rate of a radiofrequency ablation? -They also insert permanent and temporary cardiac pacemakers Cardiology Tim Klincewicz What kind of patients does a cardiologist see? Works Cited tests in order to diagnose patients. A normal cardiologist does not see patients under 18 years old. "Cardiologist". 8.29.10 <>. How many years of schooling does a Cardiologist need? What is Cardiology? Cardiology is the field of science that studies the heart and its associated functions. Cardiology is the field of science that studies the heart and its associated structures. Patients may range from deathly sick to not showing symptoms. "Cardiologist: Job Duties". 8.29.10 <>. -They use invasive (angiographies),
