Cardiology is a branch dealing with heart and circulatory system diseases. Cardiology was a sub-branch of internal medicine previously, but now is a separate department. As with other research and / or applied sciences, the knowledge and new technologies developing through researches have led to great developments in the field of cardiology and the emergence of sub-disciplines. Cardiology has improved beyond the predictions in the last 30-40 years, and these developments continue to increase. Along with these developments, some sub-branches formed in cardiology are:
Of course, the emergence of sub-branches and the studies of doctors and researchers specialized on them allows the development of new diagnostic and treatment methods.
Some of the most important health problems of today are among the diseases that cardiology science works to provide diagnosis and treatment. Some of these diseases are as follows:
Hypertension which is also of interest of the branches such as nephrology and endocrinology departments, cardiac insufficiency, heart valve diseases congenital or resulting from various causes and etc. are among the diseases that cardiology is engaged in for diagnosis and treatment.

In cardiology department, inpatients are treated in the general ward and coronary intensive care units (CICU). The CICUs are the units where the patients whose condition may require emergency intervention and having danger of life (such as those having heart attack) are monitored. Heart rhythms, blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen levels of the patients who are admitted to the CICUs are monitored by a central monitor to which all patients are connected, and these monitors alert the staff in case of an abnormality in the detected values.
Patients whose general condition is improved and whose life threat disappear are taken to the general wards and monitored to continue their examination and treatment. Today, in line with the increasing needs, professional hospitals are established in the field of Cardiovascular Disease. Some of these types of hospitals in Turkey are Turkey High Specialization Hospital, Siyami Ersek and Koşu yolu Pulmonary Hypertension and Cardiovascular Diseases Hospitals.
