The Department of Cardiology at American Hospital Dubai aims to improve quality of life through the latest innovations and advanced techniques in cardiology. It offers medical and surgical management for all types of cardiovascular diseases along with expert services.
Cardiology is a subdivision of the medical field that focuses on the illnesses of the heart and other areas of the circulatory system. Cardiology is a vast field that encompasses the diagnosis as well as treatments of diseases such as heart failure, valvular heart disease, coronary artery disease, and congenital heart defects.
Though every physician has studied in-depth about the heart and its disorders, adult and child heart-related diseases are looked at separately and require different training for adult and pediatric cardiology respectively. The surgical domain for cardiology is also separate and a specialization in cardiothoracic surgery is required for surgeons to operate.
Heart problems do not always have apparent warning signs. However, there are certain cases when the risk of heart disease increases significantly especially for people who are over the age of 60, for those with obesity or other health issues. Some of the symptoms of heart-related problems can be:
- Stomach pain
- Chest Discomfort
- Jaw or throat ache
- Pain in the left arm
- Persistent cough
- Swollen legs, feet, and ankles
- Irregular heartbeat
There is also not one particular type of heart condition and cardiac diseases can appear in many forms. Some of the most common heart-related issues are:
- Coronary heart disease
- Unstable angina
- Heart attack
- Heart failure
- Valve disease
- High blood pressure
- Congenital heart conditions
- Inherited heart conditions

The health of your heart is central to your overall health and well-being. The heart is the center of the cardiovascular system and is responsible for pumping blood rich in nutrients throughout your body. Without a good functioning heart, the oxygen in your body cannot be efficiently supplied and the removal of toxins and waste is hindered.
An unhealthy diet and poor lifestyle choices can cause damage to your heart and promote cardiovascular disease. Research suggests that depression can also be caused by heart problems since narrowed blood vessels limit the supply of blood traveling to the brain.
Smarter life choices can easily prevent the risk of developing heart disease. Here are some ways that you can promote good heart health:
- Maintaining a healthy diet
- Exercising regularly
- Keep a healthy weight
- Quit smoking
- Drinking alcohol in moderation
- Managing stress
