Cardiology is the medical specialty practiced by doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the heart and blood vessels, such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, and abnormal heart rhythms. Some cardiologists have a focus of practice more concerned with diagnosis (such as treadmill testing), while others focus in procedures done in hospitals such as opening up blocked heart blood vessels. Some may focus on working with healthy athletes, and some may work more with children with heart problems. Before you consult with a specialist, it is good to know if he has a focus of practice and if he has certification from the Sociedade Brasiliera de Cardiologia, which is the official organization recognized by the Associação Médica Brasiliera.
