Cardiac Physiologists are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with heart conditions. They can work in a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic specialities, from in-utero scans to end-of-life care.
Using specialist equipment, Cardiac Physiologists can assess and monitor a patient’s heart. This equipment helps them record:
- blood pressure
- heart rate
- electrical activity
Cardiac surgeons and doctors rely on these findings to diagnose problems and decide on treatment.
Cardiac physiologists work in a challenging and stimulating environment. They combine caring and analytical problem solving in order to provide excellent patient care and support.
