is there a diffferent definition for both? I was informed I have a rapid heartbeat 150+. My doctor said he was going to make an appointment with an electrocardiologist.
Hi Troubled Heart,
A cardiologist is a physician who is certified to treat problems of the cardiovascular system (i.e. heart, arteries, and veins).
An electrocardiologist is a cardiologist specializing in heart rhythms, such as a too slow/fast heart rates and EKG results which is influence by the electrical signals of the heart.
All the best,
