Cardiac Physiologist

Cardiac physiologists use a variety of technical equipment to monitor, record and measure the way patients' hearts are working to help doctors diagnose and treat patients with heart disease. In addition to performing tests to determine heart functioning, they also need to interact with patients, explain what is happening and prepare them for the procedure. Some cardiac physiologists specialize in checking for blockages in the blood vessels around the heart, others specialize in fitting pacemakers, and others still specialize in the circulation, rather than the heart itself.
