Journal of Clinical Cardiology and Research

About Journal of Clinical Cardiology and Research

Journal of Clinical Cardiology and Research is a peer-reviewed and scientific journal that allows cardiologists to publish their articles which are based on basic research happening in cardiology field around the world. The journal covers wide range of topics including cardiology disorders, treatment related to disorders, techniques to find out any particular disorders etc in this discipline and helps to create a platform for the authors/researchers to contribute towards this field. Journal welcomes any type of article Research article, Review article, Short Communication, Case Reports, Mini Review, Image Article, Letter to Editor and many more.

Arrhythmia Condition

Arrhythmia condition is any change from the normal sequence of electrical impulses. The electrical impulses may happen too fast, too slowly, or erratically-causing the heart to beat too fast, too slowly, or erratically. When the heart doesn't beat properly, it can't pump blood effectively. When the heart doesn't pump blood effectively, the lungs, brain and all other organs can't work properly and may shut down or be damaged.

Cardiac ablation

It is a surgery used to treat abnormal heart rhythms or arrhythmias. Cardiac ablation is a procedure that is used to scar small areas in your heart which can results in irregular and abnormal electric heart beats. Endometrial ablation can be done by Laser beam (laser thermal ablation).Heat (thermal ablation), and Radiofrequency. An ablation is done using the same technique as an electrophysiology (EP) study and is often carried out at the same time. During the procedure, small wires called electrodes are placed inside the heart to measure heart's electrical activity. These electrodes may also be used to destroy the bad areas of the heart.

Echocardiogram

A procedure that evaluates the structure and function of the heart by using sound waves (ultrasound) recorded on an electronic sensor which produce a moving picture of the heart and heart valves.

Heart Diseases

Heart diseases is also known as cardiovascular disease. It includes stroke, hypertensive heart disease, aortic aneurysms, cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, congenital heart disease, endocarditis and peripheral artery disease. These may be caused by high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, lack of exercise, obesity, high blood cholesterol, poor diet. The most common cause of heart disease is narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart itself.

Heart Failure Condition

A condition in which the heart cannot pump out enough blood to meet the body's needs, which leads to an accumulation of blood in the vessels leading to the heart and fluid in the body tissues. Excess blood in the pulmonary (lung) blood vessels can also occur, leading to fluid accumulation in the lungs.

Myocardial Infarction/Cardiac Arrest

Myocardial Infarction occurs when one of more regions of the heart muscle experience a severe or prolonged decrease in oxygen supply caused by a blocked blood flow in a coronary artery to the heart muscle. In other words, death of a portion of the heart muscle tissue due to a blockage or interruption in the supply of blood to the heart muscle.

Pericarditis Condition

An inflammation or infection of the sac, swelling and irritation of the pericardium which surrounds the heart that can create a pericardial effusion. Pericarditis usually begins suddenly but doesn't last long (acute). When symptoms develop more gradually or persist, pericarditis is considered chronic.
