Cardiology Q & A

What is cardiology?

Cardiology involves diagnostic and treatment services for conditions affecting your heart and blood vessels.

The cardiology specialists at Spring Hospital offer a wide variety of in-office testing services and customized treatment plans to address acute and chronic conditions like:

  • Arrhythmia
  • Atherosclerosis
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Atrial fibrillation (abnormal heart rhythm)

The providers can also work with you on a preventive care plan to reduce your risk for long-term cardiovascular complications, heart attack, and stroke.

When should I schedule a cardiology consultation?

The Spring Hospital cardiologists recommend scheduling a diagnostic evaluation if you experience symptoms that might relate to a heart issue, such as:

  • Dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Irregular heartbeat

If you have symptoms that come on suddenly or become severe, visit the Spring Hospital emergency room as a walk-in for immediate care. With on-site diagnostic blood work, ultrasounds, and other testing, your provider can confirm or rule out an existing heart condition, including a heart attack or stroke.

You might also need routine screenings for cardiovascular conditions if you have risk factors like a family history of heart disease, a history of smoking, or uncontrolled high blood pressure. These screenings can identify early warning signs of disease, so you can treat the condition in the earliest stages.

What can I expect during a cardiology consultation?

The cardiologists at Spring Hospital take the time to understand your personal and family medical history and your risk factors for cardiac dysfunction. They also discuss your symptoms to determine what type of diagnostic testing you need.

They offer ultrasounds and cardiac enzyme analysis through their on-site lab to identify the cause of your heart-related symptoms during your appointment. They evaluate your results and customize a treatment plan to address chest pain, shortness of breath, and other symptoms.

Depending on the severity of your heart condition, you may need to take medication, change your diet, and make lifestyle adjustments to protect your heart health. More serious conditions may require hospitalization for treatment or cardiovascular surgery.
