Cardiology is a medical specialty and a branch of internal medicine concerned with disorders of the heart.

Doctors who specialise in hearts are called cardiologists. Cardiologists diagnose and treat a wide range of heart disorders such as:

  • Heart arrhythmia
  • Adult congenital heart disease
  • Ischaemic heart disease
  • Heart failure
  • Valvular heart disease
  • Genetic heart disease
Learn about the heart

The heart has four chambers. The two upper chambers (the right atrium and left atrium) receive blood as it returns from the body or the lungs. The lower chambers (the right and left ventricle) pump the blood out to the lungs or body.

Heart failure is a condition where the heart doesn’t pump blood to the rest of your body the way it should. This means your organs and muscles don’t get enough oxygen to function properly.
