Cardiac Diseases

by Joseph Alpert, MD

Cardiology is the branch of medicine that specializes in the study, diagnosis, and management of pathologies affecting the heart. Dysfunction of the cardiac pump can manifest in several ways depending on the underlying cause. Respiratory signs and symptoms are common in the case of poor cardiac performance or inadequate oxygenation of blood.

In this course, the student will be given overview of heart failure, congenital heart diseases, valvular diseases, coronary artery disease, the different types of cardiomyopathies, cardiac dysrhythmias, and hypertension.

For optimal understanding, the student should be familiar with the anatomy of the heart, with special emphasis on coronary circulation and the conduction system, and cardiac physiology, with special attention to the cardiac cycle and membrane potential.
