Symptoms of Cardiology Diseases

The heart is the epicenter of the cardiovascular system, vitally responsible for the body's smooth functioning. It beats about 2.5 million times over the average lifetime, pushing millions of gallons of blood to every part of the body. This steady flow facilitates oxygen, fuel, hormones, and other components. Failure of the heart leads to the collapse of essential functions.

We at Star Hospitals understand the importance of maintaining a healthy heart. The Cardiology Department of STAR Hospitals is one of the finest in the city, imparting exceptional quality care, exceptional treatment, and improved quality of life for our patients. Our teams of highly specialized and qualified cardiologists diagnose, treat, and manage typical and rare heart conditions, the symptoms of which are:

  • Chest pain
  • Chest Pressure
  • Shortness of breath or breathlessness
  • Palpitations

  • Swelling of feet
  • High blood pressure
  • Speech difficulties
  • Vision changes
