Geriatric Cardiology:

It is the branch of cardiology and geriatric medicine that deals with the cardiovascular disorders in elderly people. Cardiac disorders such as coronary heart disease, including myocardial infarction, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, and arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, are common and are a major cause of mortality in elderly people. Morbidity and Mortality in aged people is caused by the vascular disorders such as atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial diseases.

Cardio-metabolic diseases:

The most common cardio-metabolic diseases are atherosclerotic cardiovascular (CV) disease and diabetes mellitus which are significantly enhanced by the presence of insulin resistance and atherogenic dyslipidemia, is characterized by the presence of low, high.It is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 Diabetes. Conditions include increase in the blood pressure, blood sugar levels, excess body fat, and abnormal cholesterol levels.

Cardiovascular disease is seen due to the narrowed or blocked blood vessels which lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke. Other conditions, like that affect the heart's muscle, valves or rhythm, also are considered as forms of heart disease.

Cardiometabolic risk factors for CVD include age, sex, family history, hypertension, dysglycemia, dyslipidemia, and smoking.

Cardiovascular Diabetology, Obesity & Stroke

The logical objective of this track is to comprehend the basic causes and pathophysiology of stoutness, diabetes, and related metabolic sicknesses, just as seeking after successful and safe mediations and therapeutics. Examiners in this division additionally have an exceptional accentuation on ladies' wellbeing and on the formative programming of metabolic ailments. This incorporates aptitude in the focal sensory system that controls craving and vitality use, pancreas capacity, and fat tissue work. Our specialists use an expansive exhibit of research apparatuses including non-obtrusive imaging, complex entire creature thinks about on physiology and conduct, and in vitro and ex vivo methods.

Despite the fact that we are a little division as of now, at present comprising of 5 center researchers and 4 staff researchers, we have over $7 million (direct costs) of subsidizing dynamic during 2012-2013, with 70% originating from NIH and the rest from industry joint efforts. Besides, our outside teammates have nearly $2.5 million in help during that time straightforwardly identified with research utilizing our Obese NHP Resource.

Cardiovascular Surgeries:

Cardiovascular Surgeries are the main surgeries in the heart vessels. This is done to treat the complications in heart diseases like ischemic heart disease,Valvular heart disease or to correct congenital heart disease from various causes like Endocarditis, atherosclerosis and rheumatic heart disease. These also include heart transplantation.

Myocardial and Pericardial Disease:

Myocardial disease is subdivided into: primary and secondary myocardial diseases. The primary type most common due to genetic cause, secondary myocardial diseases are mostly acquired but may be precipitated by a genetic background. In the primary myocardial disease the most common is the hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is associated with a wide variety of genetic abnormalities.

Myocardial disease with a known cause is termed secondary myocardial disease.

Nine different etiologies can be distinguished they are Hypertension, Ischaemia, Valvular disease, Alcohol, Metabolic cardiomyopathy, Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, Peripartum cardiomyopathy, Tachycardia.

Pericardial Diseases:

The pericardium comprises two layers; the visceral layer that adheres to epicardial surface of the heart, and the parietal layer that surrounds most of the heart. Pericardial disease is common, and diagnosis is usually straightforward as the pericardium reacts to disruption by a wide variety of agents and processes in a relatively uniform manner. Typical presentation is with chest pain and fever, production of pericardial fluid with possible cardiac tamponade, or a constrictive pattern by thickening, retraction and calcification.

2 types of pericardial diseases: Acute & Chronic.


An Arrhythmia is an issue with the rate or rhythm of your pulse. It implies that your heart thumps too rapidly, too gradually, or with a sporadic example. At the point when the heart thumps quicker than ordinary, it is called tachycardia. Bradycardia is the point at which the heart pulsates more Slow than ordinary. Atrial fibrillation is the point at which the upper assemblies of the heart beat in an unpredictable example and out of synchrony with the lower chambers.


Arrhythmias can be brought about by:

  • Coronary supply route illness
  • High pulse.
  • Changes in the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy)
  • Valve issue
  • Electrolyte imbalance in the blood like sodium or potassium.
  • Injury from a heart assault.
  • The mending process after heart medical procedure and other ailments.


  • A vacillating in your chest.
  • A hustling heartbeat (tachycardia)
  • A moderate heartbeat (bradycardia)
  • Chest torment.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Lightheadedness or discombobulation.
  • Sweating.
  • Fainting (syncope) or close swooning.
  • Conclusion of arrhythmia

The specialist will attempt to discover what triggers the patient's arrhythmia. This will include a point by point talk with, which may incorporate the patient's medicinal history, family ancestry, diet, and way of life.

The accompanying tests may be requested:

•           Blood and pee tests

•           EKG (electrocardiogram)

•           Holtermonitor - a wearable gadget that records the heart for 1-2 days

•           Echocardiogram

•           Chest X-beam

•           Tilt-table test

•           Electrophysiologic testing (or EP contemplates)

•           Heart catheterization

Cardiac Electrophysiology:

Cardiac electrophysiology is the science of elucidating, diagnosing, and treating the electrical activities of the heart. The term is usually used to describe studies of such phenomena by invasive (intracardiac) catheter recording of spontaneous activity as well as of cardiac responses to programmed electrical stimulation. 

Congenital Heart Diseases:

A Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) is otherwise called an innate heart oddity and inherent coronary illness, is a deformity in the structure of the heart or extraordinary vessels that is available during childbirth. Signs and symptoms depend on the specific type of defect. Symptoms can vary from none to life-threatening

The most common types of congenital heart defects:

  1. Aortic valve stenosis
  2. Coarctation of the aorta
  3. Ebstein's anomaly
  4. Patent ductus arteriosus
  5. Pulmonary valve stenosis
  6. Septal defects
  7. Atrial septal defects
  8. Ventricular septal defects
  9. Single ventricle defects
  10. (Hypoplastic left heart syndrome
  11. Tricuspid atresia)
  12. Tetralogy of Fallot
  13. Truncus arteriosus
  14. Transposition of the great arteries
  15. Total (or partial) anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC)

According to the American Heart Association, Ventricular septal defect occurs in 2 to 7 percent of all live births and accounts for about 20 percent of all congenital heart defects.

Clinical Cardiology:

Cardiology is the branch of medicine which deals with the dysfunctions of the heart in humans or animals. The field incorporates analysis and treatment of heart disappointment, inborn heart deserts, coronary corridor malady, valvular coronary illness and electrophysiology. It is a specialization of Physicians and inner drug that spend significant time in this field of medication are called cardiologists. The Cardiothoracic specialists or Cardiac specialists are the ones who represent considerable authority in cardiology from general medical procedure. Clinical Cardiology an American diary about Cardiology established in 1978. Clinical Cardiology helps in coordinating the researches in medical diagnosis, cardiovascular medicine and cardiovascular surgeries.

Nuclear Cardiology & Cardiac CT:

Nuclear Cardiology has assumed a vital job in building up the analysis of coronary illness and in the appraisal of sickness degree and the expectation of results in the setting of coronary course infection. Nuclear cardiology concentrates utilize noninvasive systems to survey myocardial blood stream, assess the siphoning capacity of the heart just as picture the size and area of a heart assault. Among the procedures of nuclear cardiology, myocardial perfusion imaging is the most broadly utilized.

A registered tomography sweep is ordinarily called a CT output or CAT output is a test that utilizes X-beams to see explicit regions of your body. These outputs utilize safe measures of radiation to make nitty gritty pictures of the body, which can assist the specialist with detecting any issues. A heart, or cardiovascular, CT output is utilized to see your heart and veins. A Cardiac CT output may likewise be known as a coronary CT angiogram if it's intended to see the supply routes that carry blood to your heart. The test might be known as a coronary calcium filter if it's intended to decide if there is a development of calcium in your heart.


Cardio oncology is described as the interdisciplinary field of prescription in which the clinical changes of cardiovascular system are considered in the midst of the different strategies for meds of sickness. It helps in concentrate the heart conditions in patients who have been treated for threatening development. A conclusive purpose of Cardio oncology is to find a congruity between oncologic feasibility and diminishing horrible cardiovascular effects.

Age, strength, usage of tobacco, affirmation of specific sorts of danger drugs or radiation treatment to the chest is considered as the peril factors through cardiologists. Various reasons may be the results of radio-and chemo-treatment in whole deal overcomers of damage. All patients who are being considered for chemotherapy, especially the people who have prior history of heart sickness should experience separated cardiovascular evaluation to improve the treatment.

Successive assessment of left ventricular systolic limit and cardiovascular biomarkers may in like manner be considered in the picked masses of patient. Mischief can in like manner occur in the midst of whole deal follow-up after coronary vein avoid join together (CABG). Cardio-oncology contemplates helps oncologists in early treatment by about review the center of their patients to guarantee them.

Cardiovascular Devices:

A cardiovascular device is utilized to keep your heart beating with an ordinary rhythm. There are a few kinds of devices accessible.

Sorts of Cardiac Devices incorporate pacemakers, implantable Cardioverter defibrillators, or ICDs, and embedded heart mood screens called circle recorders and this track includes an exchange of cardiovascular devices utilization in the medical procedures and new devices developing in the field of Cardiology.

Interventional Cardiology:

The interventional cardiology is the principle part of cardiology that alludes the particular Cather based systems to different basic heart ailments, non-surgeries for treating cardiovascular sickness. Interventional cardiologists use catheters; it is meager, adaptable cylinder to fix harmed vessels or other heart structures, regularly staying away from the requirement for medical procedure. The most normally methods can be performing on heart by Catheterization. It includes the addition of a sheath into the femoral supply route and cannulating the heart under X-beam perception. Cardiovascular catheterization is a test which used to assess the coronary courses and heart valve work.

Digital Health and Cardiology:

Advanced wellbeing innovations have overpowered the purchaser business focus in the past couple of years, focusing basically on remote adaptable prosperity (mHealth) instruments, including PDA applications, wearables, and "splendid" contraptions, for instance, circulatory strain sleeves, glucosensors and mechanized weight scales. Telehealth, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and video visits furthermore fall under the umbrella of cutting edge prosperity. Automated prosperity advances can change human administrations movement; anyway most development associations are concentrating on buyer things as opposed to making modernized gadgets for clinicians to organize into clinical thought.

Computerized wellbeing pursues:

  • The Use of Artificial Intelligence in Cardiology
  • Utilization of Digital Health Technology to Generate Data, Deliver Evidence-based Care
  • Versatile Health Advances in Physical Activity, Fitness and Atrial Fibrillation

Cardiovascular Toxicology and Pharmacology:

Cardiovascular Toxicology is harm to the heart by destructive synthetic conditions. As a noteworthy part of your treatment, you may be given toxins (drugs) to butcher dangerous development cells. A side effect is that the commonplace cells in and around your heart can similarly be executed.

The Cardiovascular pharmacology deals with the mechanism of action of different classes of drugs to their effect on the control of cardiovascular system. It will cover both newer drugs and recent advances in understanding the older drug mechanisms. This allows anaesthetists to incorporate new drugs into their clinical practice and the cardiovascular system uses a complex series of control mechanisms to maintain homeostasis.

Heart Regeneration:

The regrowth of organs and tissues of the heart that are lost in damage are called Cardiac Regeneration. This is in uniqueness to wound recuperating, which includes shutting of the damage site by framing a scar. Hardly any tissues like skin and huge organs, for example, liver regrow promptly, while others have been seen with practically zero limit of recovery. All things considered in the present research, it proposes that especially in the Lungs and heart, there is promise for an assortment of organs and tissues will in the long run create and the ability to recover.

Cardio-thoracic Surgeries:

Cardiothoracic surgery (otherwise called thoracic surgery) is the field of drug associated with careful treatment of organs inside the thorax (the chest) for the most part treatment of states of the heart (coronary illness) and lungs (lung ailment). They are a few methodologies for the thoracic surgery later it advanced to Open heart surgery, It is a methodology wherein the patient's heart is opened and medical procedure is performed on the inside structures of the heart. The other sort of surgeries are bit by bit created like Modern beating-heart surgery (In this sort, the heart is thumping during surgery, yet is settled to give a practically still work territory in which to associate the channel vessel that sidesteps the blockage), minimally invasive surgery(robot-assisted heart surgery), Paediatric cardiovascular surgery (Surgery in kids).

Current Research in Cardiology

Current Research in Cardiology manages with the study of surgical and medical aspects of heart and its diseases therapeutic analysis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary vein ailment, medicate eluting stents, myocardial localized necrosis, endovascular fix, embolic security, imaging advances and electrophysiology. It gives a stage to famous researchers like specialists, chiefs, educators, youthful researchers, understudies and so on which gives a decent scope for new improvement and new propels in research in the field of cardiology.

Cardiac Nursing and Healthcare:

Cardiac nursing is an enlisted medical attendant who practices to work with patients who experience the ill effects of different states of the cardiovascular framework. Cardiovascular medical attendants (nurses) help to treat conditions, for example, insecure angina, cardiomyopathy, coronary conduit ailment, congestive heart failure, myocardial localized necrosis and heart dysrhythmia under the bearing of a cardiologist. Cardiac nurses additionally perform postoperative consideration on a careful unit, stress test assessments, cardiovascular checking, vascular observing, and wellbeing appraisals

Cardiac nurses work in many different environments, including coronary care units (CCU), cardiac catheterization, intensive care units (ICU), operating theatres, cardiac rehabilitation centres, clinical research, cardiac surgery wards, cardiovascular intensive care units (CVICU), and cardiac medical wards.

Cardiovascular Risk Management;

Cardiovascular illness (CVD) is the real reason for dismalness and mortality for people with diabetes and is the biggest supporter of the immediate and circuitous expenses of diabetes. The regular conditions coinciding with sort 2 diabetes (e.g., hypertension and dyslipidemia) are clear hazard factors for CVD, and diabetes itself presents free chance.

How to Manage?

Controlled Hypertension/Blood Pressure

Dyslipidemia/Lipid Management


Women Heart Health:

Women can find a way to comprehend their side effects of coronary illness and to start to decrease their danger of heart disease. The pathophysiology in people stays under scrutiny and the components in charge of the sexual dimorphism in pulse control are hazy. Sex-specific hemodynamic characteristics and the effect of sex hormones may speak to a bit of the differentiations. Examinations of the effects on beat of treatment have yielded conflicting results.

In the WHI, ladies utilizing hormone substitution treatment had a lower commonness of hypertension (35%) than never clients (41%), yet clients would in general be more youthful and more slender. After change for these and other possibly perplexing factors, the current utilization of hormone supplanting treatment was related with a 25% expansion in the danger of hypertension contrasted and never utilizes or past utilize. The innate illness have encountered impressive advancement over the most recent couple of years, with advances in new that can be connected at all phases of life from the baby to the grown-up.

Signs of heart attack in women:

  • Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the centre of chest. It keeps going in excess of a couple of minutes, or leaves and returns.
  • Pain or distress in one or the two arms, back, neck, jaw or stomach.
  • Shortness of breath with or without chest distress.
  • Other signs, for example, breaking out in a virus sweat, sickness or unsteadiness.
  • As with men, ladies' most regular heart assault side effect is chest agony or distress. Be that as it may, ladies are to some degree more probable than men to encounter a portion of the other normal indications, especially brevity of breath, queasiness/retching and back or jaw torment.

Cardiovascular Diseases during Pregnancy:

Rheumatic MS is the most well-known valve injury in ladies of childbearing age. There is frequently some related mitral disgorging (MR). During pregnancy, increments in heart rate, CO, red platelet mass, and plasma volume can prompt expanded left atrial weights and cardiovascular decompensation.

Cardiovascular Diseases in the pregnant patient can present difficulties in cardiovascular and maternal-fetal management.1 It is essential to comprehend that even in typical patients, pregnancy forces some emotional physiologic changes upon the cardiovascular framework. These incorporate an expansion in plasma volume by half, an expansion in resting beat by 17%, and an expansion in cardiovascular yield by half. After conveyance, the pulse standardizes inside 10 days; by 3 months baby blues, stroke volume, heart yield, and foundational vascular opposition come back to the pre-pregnancy state.          

Geriatric Cardiology  and care:

Geriatric cardiology is a relatively new field aimed at adapting cardiovascular care to an aging population, by incorporating principles of geriatric medicine into the routine care of older adults with cardiovascular disease.

Geriatric care is the way toward arranging and organizing care of the older with physical as well as mental disabilities to meet their long haul care needs, improve their personal satisfaction, and keep up their autonomy for whatever length of time that conceivable.

Significance of Elderly care Services: Maturity is a delicate stage, older individuals need care and solace to have a sound existence without stresses and uneasiness. Absence of mindfulness in regards to the changing standards of conduct in older individuals at home prompts maltreatment of them by their sort.

Cardiovascular Diseases and Nutrition:

The Cardiovascular Diseases influencing the created world have at their center atherosclerosis and hypertension, the two of which are significantly influenced by eating regimen and can be drawn nearer, in any event to some degree, from a healthful perspective, as can the expanding "Epidemic" of stoutness.

Diet is a multi-part blend of numerous supplements, which may associate with each other. The conclusive investigation of supplements and their effect on cardiovascular ailment can be an overwhelming venture. Numerous dietary hazard components add to these ailments in different natural and ethnic settings. These hazard elements are regularly in proof in youth with the goal that preventive estimates must be started from the get-go throughout everyday life.

Importance and Scope

Heart Disease depicts a scope of conditions that influence your heart. Illnesses under the coronary illness umbrella incorporate vein sicknesses, for example, coronary corridor malady; heart mood issues (arrhythmias); and heart imperfections you're brought into the world with for example inborn heart abandons, Rheumatic coronary illness, Hypertensive coronary illness, Ischemic coronary illness, Hypertension and some more.

Every year cardiovascular sickness (CVD) causes 3.9 million passings in Europe and over 1.8 million passings in the European Union (EU). CVD represents 45% of all passings in Europe and 37% of all passings in the EU and as indicated by WHO (World Health Organization) and the CDC, coronary illness is the main source of death in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia. The quantity of US grown-ups determined to have coronary illness remains at 26.6 million (11.3% of grown-up population),23.5% of all passings in the USA today are brought about by coronary illness.
