Cardiovascular symptoms and complaints are common and can be indicative of various underlying conditions. This guide aims to provide an overview of the diagnostic steps and possible interventions for cardiovascular symptoms and complaints.


– ICPC-2 Code: K29 Cardiovascular sympt./complt. other
– ICD-10 Code: R09.8 Other specified symptoms and signs involving the circulatory and respiratory systems


  • Chest pain: This can range from mild discomfort to severe pain and may be described as pressure, squeezing, or burning.
  • Shortness of breath: Difficulty breathing or feeling breathless, especially with exertion.
  • Palpitations: Sensation of a rapid or irregular heartbeat.
  • Fatigue: Feeling tired or lacking energy.
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness: Feeling faint or unsteady.
  • Swelling: Edema in the legs, ankles, or feet.
  • Cyanosis: Bluish discoloration of the lips, fingers, or toes.


  • Coronary artery disease: Narrowing or blockage of the arteries that supply blood to the heart.
  • Heart failure: Inability of the heart to pump blood effectively.
  • Arrhythmias: Abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Valvular heart disease: Malfunctioning or damaged heart valves.
  • Pericarditis: Inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart.
  • Cardiomyopathy: Disease of the heart muscle.
  • Pulmonary embolism: Blockage of a blood vessel in the lungs.
  • Hypertension: High blood pressure.
  • Aortic dissection: Tear in the inner layer of the aorta.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s symptoms, including their duration, severity, and any triggering factors.
  • Assess the patient’s medical history, including any previous cardiovascular conditions, surgeries, or interventions.
  • Identify risk factors such as smoking, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, family history of cardiovascular disease, and comorbidities like diabetes or hypertension.

Physical Examination

  • Measure blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory rate.
  • Auscultate the heart and lungs for abnormal sounds.
  • Palpate the peripheral pulses and check for edema.
  • Examine the extremities for signs of cyanosis or clubbing.
  • Assess the patient’s general appearance, including signs of distress or fatigue.

Laboratory Tests

  • Complete blood count (CBC): To assess for anemia or infection.
  • Lipid profile: To evaluate cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
  • Cardiac biomarkers (troponin, CK-MB): To detect myocardial damage.
  • Electrolyte panel: To assess for imbalances that may affect cardiac function.
  • Liver function tests: To evaluate liver health and assess for potential drug interactions.
  • Thyroid function tests: To rule out thyroid disorders that may contribute to cardiovascular symptoms.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG): To assess the electrical activity of the heart and detect arrhythmias or ischemic changes.
  • Echocardiogram: To evaluate the structure and function of the heart, including the valves and chambers.
  • Chest X-ray: To assess the size and shape of the heart and detect any signs of pulmonary congestion or fluid accumulation.
  • Stress test: To evaluate the heart’s response to exercise and assess for ischemia or arrhythmias.
  • Cardiac CT or MRI: To obtain detailed images of the heart and blood vessels, useful for assessing coronary artery disease or structural abnormalities.

Other Tests

  • Holter monitor: A portable device that records the heart’s electrical activity over a period of 24-48 hours, useful for detecting arrhythmias.
  • Cardiac catheterization: Invasive procedure to visualize the coronary arteries and measure pressures within the heart.
  • Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE): A specialized echocardiogram performed by inserting a probe into the esophagus to obtain clearer images of the heart.
  • Pulmonary function tests: To assess lung function and rule out respiratory causes of symptoms.
  • Genetic testing: In certain cases, genetic testing may be indicated to identify inherited cardiovascular conditions.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s progress and adjust treatment as necessary.
  • Provide education on lifestyle modifications, including diet, exercise, smoking cessation, and stress management.
  • Discuss the importance of medication adherence and potential side effects.
  • Address any concerns or questions the patient may have.

Possible Interventions

Traditional Interventions
