Cardiology Specialists in One of the Best Private Hospitals in Malaysia
Cardiology is a branch of medicine focusing on the abnormalities and complications of the heart that generally consists of congenital and acquired diseases, for instance, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, and congestive heart failure. Cardiologists are doctors who diagnose and treat diseases of the cardiovascular system and are responsible for diagnosis and managing the treatment procedures.
Heart diseases and complications are potentially life-threatening. However, in most cases, they are preventable. A person can increase the chance of having a stronger heart and a longer lifespan by adopting a healthy lifestyle earlier on.

Cardiovascular Diseases and Complications
Heart diseases can be either congenital or acquired diseases with a diversity of cardiovascular complications such as:
- Arrhythmia – abnormal heart rhythm
- Atherosclerosis – hardening of the arteries
- Cardiomyopathy – a condition that causes the hardening or weakening of the heart muscle
- Congenital heart defects – heart abnormalities happen at birth
- Coronary artery disease (CAD) – is caused by plaque build-up in the heart's arteries, also frequently known as ischemic heart disease
- Heart infections – commonly associated with parasites, viruses or bacteria
When It Is Recommended to See a Cardiology Doctor?
If you are experiencing or have in the past experienced any of these conditions, it is recommended that you make an appointment to visit the nearest cardiologist:
1. Chest pain
There is more than one reason that causes chest pain, but chest pain that occurs and worsens with movement is a sign that the heart is possibly not getting enough oxygen. A cardiologist can assess and perform relevant medical diagnoses.
2. Shortness of breath, palpitations or dizziness
Cardiologists can diagnose and determine whether these symptoms are caused by heart conditions. Symptoms like these could be the signs of possible irregular heart rhythm (such as atrial fibrillation) or coronary artery disease.
Poorly regulated blood sugar affects the normal functioning of blood vessels, and it increases the risk of developing coronary artery disease. A primary care physician and a cardiologist can combine their expertise to plan a preventive measure and treatment which reduces the risk of future complications.
4. A family history of heart disease
There are hereditary types of heart diseases. In such situations, a cardiologist can assess and determine the risk of the disease for a patient and suggest precautionary measures or management strategies.
5. Plan to start an exercise program or to get away from inactivity
Exercise brings many advantages to a person’s health, and plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of heart diseases. That being said, there are heart conditions that make exercise a possible harmful activity. When a person is considering exercising after having a sedentary lifestyle or having risk factors for heart diseases, consulting a cardiologist before starting is highly recommended.
