Expert assessment, diagnosis and treatment to help improve your heart health
Your heart is a muscle. Beating millions of times every year, it pumps blood around your body. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to your body and helps to remove waste products.
As with all muscles, your heart works best when it is healthy and well. Occasionally something can stop the heart from working normally, or the blood vessels may become narrowed or blocked. When this happens, medical treatment may be needed.
A problem with your heart or blood vessels (known as the circulatory system) can significantly affect your physical, mental and emotional health.
Our Consultants have years of experience treating private patients who are suffering with cardiovascular problems. They can help you too.
Cardiology is the medical speciality that investigates and treats diseases of the heart and/or blood vessels. A doctor who specialises in this field of medicine is known as a cardiologist.
In the UK, millions of people are affected by heart and circulatory diseases.
Common problems of the cardiovascular system include:
Heart problems left untreated will often get worse, with the potential to cause more problems with your long-term health. If you are at all concerned about your heart health, you’ll want to get an accurate diagnosis. Once a diagnosis has been made, treatment options can be discussed, planned and started.
The symptoms below can all be signs that some part of your cardiovascular system isn’t working as well as it should:
If you have crushing pain in and around your chest, possibly also with pain down your left arm, you should always seek urgent medical help.
Any of these symptoms can be unsettling and unpleasant to experience. However, they aren’t always a sign of a problem with your heart or blood vessels. If you are experiencing any of them, it’s important to get expert medical assessment.
Here at The Meriden Hospital, our Consultant Cardiologists can provide expert assessment, diagnosis and treatment to help improve your health.
