According to the experts of hospitals in Varanasi, most people with heart disease have chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, palpitations – slow, fast, or irregular heartbeats – dizziness, fainting, sudden loss of consciousness (syncope), swelling of the legs, ankles and feet. However, these symptoms do not always necessarily indicate the presence of heart disease. A few examples: chest pain can be the alarm bell of a respiratory or digestive disease rather than being associated with heart disease. Wheezing is often traced back to a respiratory disease. Fatigue can be caused by a wide range of diseases.
Pulse disturbance is also one of those problems on which you should put your attention as it can lead to problems with the blood supply to important organs. And slowing down and an increase in heart rate in most cases are not the norm.
In professional athletes, heart rate can drop significantly due to exercise, but if this happens in other people, this is a reason to see a doctor of top hospital in Varanasi. A fast pulse is also not normal. In addition to the fact that it can indicate heart problems, it is sometimes a symptom of endocrine or neurological disorders.
In case of violations of the heart, shortness of breath and edema of the lower extremities may occur, which intensify in the evening. In this case, the edema is symmetrical and is not associated with the intake of a large amount of fluid.
It can also happen that because of pathologist of the heart, a person may experience shortness of breath even when he/she is at rest (up to episodes during sleep). A competent cardiologist of multi specialty hospital in Varanasi can help to find out the cause of these disorders and choose the optimal treatment.
CARDIOGRAM (ECG) AND ECHO – INFORMATIVE EXAMINATION METHODS IN CARDIOLOGY
Reception of a cardiologist begins with taking an anamnesis and taking an ECG. If you have the results of a previously made cardiogram, be sure to take them with you. The doctor will compare the results of the study and draw a conclusion about the dynamics of changes.
ECG is an affordable and very informative method for examining the heart. After removing the cardiogram, the graph of the contraction and relaxation of the heart muscles remains on the film.
Thanks to the ECG, you can: detect cardiac arrhythmias; identify ischemia and myocardial infarction; diagnose conduction disorders and blockade; find indirect signs of an increase in the left ventricle of the heart; detect signs of dystrophic changes.
A cardiogram is the easiest way to diagnose in cardiology. But sometimes it is not enough, and the doctor may recommend an ultrasound of the heart. During this procedure (its second name is ECHO), you can assess the size of the heart, structural features, identify congenital defects and anomalies.
In addition, ultrasound can detect inflammation, aneurysms and other vascular pathologies. ECHO shows tumour-like neoplasms and blood flow disturbances.
ECG and ECHO are different from each other and in most cases are not interchangeable. Therefore, it is advisable to carry out 2 procedures in combination, if the doctor prescribes them.
