What are the treatment procedures that come under clinical & critical cardiology

Our unit provides the highest level of care for critical care patients with cardiac and other medical conditions. However, a team of doctors works closely and follows a multidisciplinary approach to develop a treatment plan for critically ill patients who are admitted to the hospital for complex heart conditions.

Generally, there are two main lines of treatment for heart disease. 

Medication

For the majority of heart conditions, a cardiologist might prescribe medication to prevent the condition from getting worse. The mainly prescribe medicine are:

  • Statins- for lowering cholesterol
  • Warfarin- a blood thinner for preventing blood clots
  • Beta-blockers- for treating heart failure, heart attack, and high blood pressure
  • Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitors- for high blood pressure and heart failure

Your doctor will prescribe you the medication that is safe and effective, only after evaluating your current medical condition. They might also prescribe medications to treat underlying conditions like diabetes that can affect the heart.

Surgery- Heart surgery is an option to consider only when the medicines do not have the desired result. It helps to treat conditions like blockage and advanced stage heart diseases. The most common type of heart surgeries include:

  • Angioplasty: It is a surgical process in which a balloon catheter is inserted to widen narrowed blood vessels in the heart, which have restricted the blood flow to the heart.
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery: This process is performed over people with blocked arteries. It allows blood flow to reach a blocked part of the heart. 
  • Surgery to Repair or Replace Faulty Heart Valves
  • Pacemakers: It is an electronic machine that is used for a patient with arrhythmia to regulate heartbeats. 
  • Heart Transplants: It is a transplant procedure that is performed under chronic heart condition to replace the non-working heart with another heart of the right size and blood type in a specific span of time.

Are There Any Complications Involved

Some of the major risk factors associated with Clinical & Critical Cardiology procedures include:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • An artery collapsing or closing again
  • Infection at the site of the incision
  • Injury to adjacent organs
  • Blood clots
  • An allergic reaction to the stent or dye in it
