Cardiology

Bristol & First Medical Clinic & Urgent Care provides a wide range of services, including
cardiology services.

What is Cardiology?

Cardiology is a branch of medicine that deals with heart disorders and some circulatory disorders. There are many different medical disorders and medical conditions associated with the cardiovascular system, such as heart disease, heart disorders, heart defects, and heart attacks.

Cardiology and Chest Pain

Chest pain can be, but is not always, related to cardiological issues. However, people often feel a great deal of stress when they experience chest pain, as this symptom is commonly associated with heart attacks, a serious medical issue.

While chest pain does not always indicate the presence of heart attack or heart attack risk, pain in the chest is something we generally recommend seeking evaluation for. Chest pain can be a sign of cardiovascular issues, like atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, congestive heart disease, coronary heart disease, or hypertension. Or, alternatively, chest pain can be associated with numerous other common medical issues that are not related to the cardiovascular system. Other medical issues that may cause chest pain include panic attacks, lung problems, asthma, peptic ulcers, muscle strains, GERD, tuberculosis, pneumonia, injured ribs, or pleurisy.

If you’re experiencing chest pain, it’s a good idea to seek professional medical care in order to discover the cause of your chest pain.

Cardiology Evaluation

At Bristol & First Medical Clinic & Urgent Care, we provide comprehensive evaluation for those experiencing chest pain or for those concerned that they may be experiencing a non-emergency cardiological issue. Vital statistics such as blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing are always assessed for patients experiencing chest pain, as these statistics are crucial for determining the health and function of the heart. Additionally, Bristol & First Medical Clinic & Urgent Care has an on-site x-ray and your physician may recommend an x-ray if you’re experiencing certain symptoms.

Cardiology or Chest Pain Treatment

There are numerous treatments for chest pain and cardiological issues. The treatment that would be best for you will depend on the cause of your chest pain and your unique medical history. Some causes of chest pain can be alleviated with home-based treatments or drugs, while other causes may require other types of treatments.

If you’re experiencing chest pain or are worried you may be experiencing a non-emergency heart issue, know that no appointment is necessary to visit Bristol & First Medical Clinic & Urgent Care. Walk-in appointments are welcome and our doctors can provide a comprehensive evaluation in order to assess the cause of your chest pain.

Cardiology, Heart Health, and Lifestyle

Many factors determine our cardiovascular health. Genetics can play a role in heart health, but there are also numerous lifestyle choices you can make to improve your overall heart health. A healthy diet, not smoking, regular exercise, and low stress levels can all have a positive impact on the health of your heart. If you’re concerned about your heart health, ask your doctor about lifestyle changes you can make to improve your overall hearth health.
