Cardiology Basic Level

Cardiology is a study in which one gets to understand the diseases and abnormalities that affect the heart. Most of these disorders are life threatening. A cardiologist specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular system. Take up this basic level quiz on cardiology and get to learn more about the subject.
