Cardiovascular disease (typically referred to as "cardiology") focuses on prevention, diagnosis, and management of disorders of the cardiovascular system.

Management of risk factors for cardiovascular disease prevention, and early diagnosis and intervention for established disease are important elements of cardiology. Diseases typically seen by a cardiologist include:
-- Coronary artery disease
-- Ischemic heart disease
-- Pericardial diseases
-- Cardiomyopathies
-- Endocarditis
-- Dysrhythmias
-- Valvular heart disease
-- Congenital heart disease in adults
Symptoms of cardiovascular disease
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD)
Coronary heart disease is the interruption of blood flow to the heart caused by atherosclerosis (fatty buildup) in the coronary arteries, the two large blood vessels that supply blood to the heart. CHD can lead to chest pain (angina) or heart attack. A heart attack is a life-threatening medical emergency that requires immediate medical care. Call emergency services right away if you suspect you or a loved one are experiencing a heart attack.

Aortic Disease
The aorta is similar to the coronary arteries in that it is a large blood vessel that connects to the heart. While the coronary arteries supply blood to the heart so that it can beat, the aorta carries oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body. One type of aortic disease is an aortic aneurysm, which is a weakening of the walls of the aortic artery, causing it to bulge outward and potentially burst (which is often fatal). An aortic aneurysm can cause chest, back, and abdominal pain.

Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD)
Peripheral vascular disease is also called peripheral artery disease (PAD) or peripheral artery occlusive disease (PAOD). In PVD, there is an interruption of blood flow to a blood vessel in the limbs. It can cause pain, cramping, dullness, or heaviness in the affected limb that comes and goes and gets worse with use. PVD often occurs in the legs, impacting an individual’s ability to walk.

A stroke, also called a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is a blockage or interruption of blood flow to the brain. A stroke can be caused by a blood clot or bleed (hemorrhage) in the blood vessels that supply the brain
