Cardiology is a subspecialty of internal medicine that deals with disorders of the heart and blood vessels. The field includes diagnosis and treatment of diseases which can be categorized as:
1) Congenital heart defects: These defects arise due to change in structure of heart and newborn.
2)Coronary artery disease: This is the end result of the accumulation of atheromatous plaques within the walls of arteries that supply the myocardium (muscles of the heart) with oxygen and nutrients.
3)Heart Failure: These occur due to defect in structure or function of heart as a result of which it becomes unable to supply blood flow required for daily activities.
4)Valvular heart disease: These are the diseases involving one or more valves of the heart.

of Wisconsin has
conducted a project and Zeljko J. Bosnjak,
professor of physiology and vice chairman for research of anesthesiology is
program director for this project. Researchers conducted study on effects of
inhalational anesthetics on heart and shown that anesthetic drugs can protect
the heart against injury that results from inadequate blood flow or oxygen.
Clinical investigations demonstrated the ability of inhalational anesthetics to
improve patient outcomes following surgery. This resulted in new practice
guidelines established by the American Heart Association according to which use
of inhalational anesthetics in surgical patients who are at risk of having a
heart attack is recommended.Once we can understand this process, our
ultimate goal is to precondition organs, especially sensitive ones such as the
heart, kidney, and brain, using specific pharmacological means prior to
surgery, says Dr. Bosnjak.
According to a new study by medical college of Wisconsin, large number of high
school athlete and non-athlete suffers from one of the component of female
