What To Expect On Your Initial Visit To A Cardiologist

In order to maximize the interaction between you and your cardiologist at your next visit, it is best to come prepared. There are materials you should bring with you and ways you should prepare for your appointment.

1. Always bring a list of your current medications. A list detailing your current medications (including name, dose, and frequency of use) is an invaluable resource for your cardiologist.

2. Carry a list of your health care providers including name, address, telephone number, and condition being followed. This will help ensure that communication between your cardiologist and all of your other care providers is complete.

3. Compile a list of your past health history. Important to include are any surgical procedures (with at least approximate dates), a list of any major prior or ongoing illnesses/health issues, and a list of any major tests, especially if performed within the last year. Knowing past health events can help the physician make a diagnosis or prescribe the best course of treatment.

4. Compile a family health history of close blood relatives. From a cardiology perspective, what you are especially interested in finding out is whether any of your relatives have been diagnosed with heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or aneurysm. A family history of health events can provide clues as to what illnesses/conditions you may be at risk for developing.

5. If you have them, bring in copies of any recent lab results and any other test results from the past year, especially if the testing took place with a different health care provider. This will help avoid duplicating tests unnecessarily. Quality care begins with good communication and a good cardiologist will take time to listen to the patient and to suggest the best possible treatment option.

Cardiology FAQs

  • What is Arrhythmia
    What is Arrhythmia

    Arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms that are produced when the natural electrical conduction system of the heart malfunctions. Not all arrhythmias pose health risks. For instance, a temporary arrhythmia caused by alcohol, caffeine, or insomnia is not usually a cause for concern.

  • What is a Heart Attack?
    What is a Heart Attack?

    A heart attack, or myocardial infarction, occurs when a coronary artery becomes completely blocked due to a blood clot or arterial plaque. Part of the heart muscle dies due to oxygen deprivation, and this gives rise to the crushing chest pain characteristic of a heart attack.

  • What are the symptoms of Heart Attack?
    What are the symptoms of Heart Attack?

    While chest pain is the most common symptom of a heart attack, victims might suffer from other symptoms

    • Shortness of breath
    • Palpitations (irregular heartbeats)
    • Quickened heartbeat
    • Weak spells or dizziness
    • Nausea
    • Sweating
    • Unusual tiredness, sometimes for days
  • When do I need to see a Cardiologist?

    1. Heart pain – You may be feeling severe pressure, squeezing, pain or discomfort in the chest or a chest pain that becomes more intense. If you have any doubt about whether you are experiencing a symptom, please have it checked out by a cardiologist.

    2. Breathless – You may experience shortness of breath or a reduction in what you were previously able to do. This may be a sign of heart disease.

    3. Palpitation – You may feel a fast or irregular heartbeat. This may be associated with dizziness or fainting spells. This may indicate an underlying arrhythmia.

    4. Family history – If anyone in your family has or has had heart problems, you should be aware of heart disease symptoms and consider talking to a cardiologist about them or perform an annual heart screening to ensure your vitals are in the healthy range.

    5. High total cholesterol - Total cholesterol is the sum of all the cholesterol in your blood. The higher your total cholesterol, the greater your risk for heart disease (a cholesterol level of 200 mg/dL or higher, or an LDL of 130mg/dL or higher).

    6. High blood pressure – You have high blood pressure or a high systolic number. The systolic number on your blood pressure reading is the first number. (For example, if your reading is 120/80 (120 over 80), your systolic blood pressure is 120.).

    7. Starting a new exercise program – You are over the age of 40 and starting a new exercise program. You may already be working with a doctor on being more active, but a cardiologist can check your heart health and recommend exercises that would be good for your heart.
