47 Cardiologist Questions and Answers:

1 :: Please explain what Is The Kussmal Sign?

☛ Kussmaul's sign is the observation of a jugular venous pressure (JVP, the filling of the jugular vein) that rises with inspiration. It can be seen in some forms of heart disease. Ordinarily the JVP falls with inspiration due to reduced pressure in the expanding thoracic cavity.
☛ Kussmaul's sign suggests impaired filling of the right ventricle due to either fluid in the pericardial space or a poorly compliant myocardium or pericardium.

2 :: Do you know normal Jvd Is 6-8 Cm, What 5 Conditions Are Associated With Increased Jvd?

Congestive cardiac failure due to Ischemic heart disease Cor pulmonale Valvular heart disease like mitral stenosis Congenital heart disease like VSD Pericarditis and pericardial effusion.

3 :: Tell me can There Be Complications From Heart Surgery?

Complications from surgery may arise, but with improvements in technology, in surgical procedures and with more surgery being performed at a younger age, the risk of complications is continually being reduced.

The possible complications are related to the specific type of surgery being performed and they vary widely depending on the nature of the problem which requires surgery.

4 :: Explain me what Is Echocardiography?

Echocardiography - the use of ultrasound waves to create images of the heart chambers, valves and surrounding structures. Echocardiography can measure how well the heart is pumping blood (cardiac output), as well as determining levels of inflammation around the heart (pericarditis). Echocardiography can also be used to identify structural abnormalities or infections of the heart valves.

5 :: Tell me what about, like a victim of an April Fools joke?

I think that would be really unfortunate and would kind of make you have to rethink the whole tradition of April Fools' Day in general if mortality from cardiovascular disease goes up on April Fools' Day, I think we need to rethink why we have this holiday.

6 :: Tell me what do you mean by Cardiac Pacemaker?

A Cardiac Pacemaker is the Electrical System of the heart. It is initiated by the chemical impulses and controls the rhythms of the heart. It directly controls the heart rate.

7 :: Suppose we want to ask that why you have chosen the field of Cardiologist?

I chose the area of Cardiologist because of my interest in this field. I wanted to be capable enough to think about the people in need specially those died due to the heart diseases. I chose this because I identified myself devoted in this area to serve people.

8 :: Explain me what do you mean by Cardiomyopathy?

Sir, Cardiomyopathy is a kind of heart muscle disease which occurs after the failing and weakening of the function of the myocardium i.e. the actual heart muscle. It is an abnormal heart condition in which the heart is dilated i.e. having the poor pumping power, preventive i.e. impaired capability of the heart to fill, and hypertrophic means enlarged heart.

9 :: Can you name the diseases of Aorta and Carotid Arteries?

the diseases of Aorta is Coarctation of aorta, Aortic dissection and Aortic aneurysm and the diseases of Carotid Arteries are Carotid artery disease and Carotid artery dissection.

10 :: Tell me what advancement in your field has you the most excited?

I think we're getting at a point where the technology is becoming really personalized. It is really exciting that people come to us with the data that they've generated, either from their phones, from their smart phones, from what people have collected from wearables, and that their health literally is in their hands, and they are coming to us with what they've found.

Whereas traditionally, we do tests and we would say, "Well this is what we've found." Now they're coming to us with what they've found, and that's a really exciting thing because that really shifts the responsibility of cardiovascular care and risk reduction to where it should be, which is to the individual.
