Transcript of What is a Cardiologist?

What is a Cardiologist?
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
What is a Cardiologist
Cardiology is the study of the heart
A cardiologist works to find, help, and treat your heart and blood vessel from serious diseases.
Cardiologists DO NOT perform surgeries
simply diagnose the patient using Echocardiograms, perform Cardiac Catherization and utilize Ambulatory ECG
Monitor patients progress
advise lifestyle changes
Average Income
Cardiologists are payed quite a lot
The average Cardiologist can make around $270 000 to $400 000 a year
Pediatric Cardiologists make around $189 000 to $230 900 a year.
Some cardiologists that own their own self practices that are large enough can make $500 000.
Although, Canadian Cardiologists median salary is around $239 432
Working Conditions/ Setting and Work Hours
Cardiologists usually work at a self-run clinic, a hospital, or a university where they conduct research about the heart
A Cardiologist usually have nice work areas (well lit-rooms, lab rooms, etc)
The average weekly hours exceed 60 hours plus "in-calls"
This can result in staying up all night and coming in to evaluate patients at bad times
frustrating when patients do not take advice
work along side a team of other cardiologists, technologists, and nurses
Final Reflection
I believe that I can do well in this position because science has always been my favourite subject. I do want to carry it out through post-secondary and when I need to choose my job position. Even though to become a cardiologist, it may take as much as 14 years, I do believe that have enough determination to achieve that goal. I think that I can manage my time wisely enough and complete all my work so that I can continue through post secondary school and onwards.

University of
Why Would You Need to Visit
a Cardiologist?
There are several reasons why you may go visit a Cardiologist
first of all, you don't go straight to cardiologist, your family physician would recommend you to one if they detect abnormalities such as fast breathing and irregular heart beats
The cardiologist would then perform a series of diagnostics with special equipment
Counsel patients about lifestyle changes to prevent heart diseases
treat heart attacks, heart diseases, and irregular heart beats
Cardiac Catherization
a small tube is placed within an artery that is then pumped to the heart to take pictures
used to relieve blockage and the functionality of the heart
Ambulatory ECG
a recording during different activities to detect abnormal heart rhythms
a machine that uses sound to create a visual image of the patients heart
