Conditions

Angina

Every muscle in the human body requires oxygen in order to function properly. The heart muscle is no exception and, at times, requires more oxygen than during its resting state.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are simply defined as any disorder of the normal heart rhythm, regardless of severity or clinical implications.

Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is a very common condition in which the artery wall thickens and hardens due to build-up of fatty deposits (plaques). These plaques consist of fat, cholesterol, inflammatory cells and calcium.




Atrial fibrillation

AF is a common and important disturbance of the electrical system of the heart. It is one of a number of disorders commonly referred to as ‘arrhythmias’ or ‘dysrhythmias’, in which the heart does not beat with a normal rhythm.

Heart failure

Every year, an estimated 30,000 Australians are diagnosed with chronic heart failure.

Heart murmur

During a physical examination, your doctor usually listens to your heart with a stethoscope. The stethoscope is placed on different parts of your chest to enable the doctor to hear the sounds your heart valves make as blood passes through your heart.



Hypertension

High blood pressure is one of the most common disorders affecting the heart and blood vessels (the cardiovascular system).

Palpitations

Palpitations is the term describing any awareness of your heart beat. It can be a fast, slow or irregular heart beat. It may last seconds, minutes, hours or days.
