Cardiology is the branch of medicine pertaining to the heart and the vascular system of the human body -- the cardiovascular system. It is a subspecialty (fellowship) of Internal Medicine. Physicians who specialize in this area of medicine are called Cardiologists.

Dr. Fleischer is a Cardiologist heart doctor in Fort Walton Beach, Destin, Niceville FloridaThe main components of the human circulatory system are the heart, the blood, and the blood vessels (vascular system).  An average adult contains five to six quarts of blood, which consists of plasma and three types of cells or cell fragments: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Furthermore, these components can either belong to the systemic circulation and the pulmonary circulation. The systemic circulation is the main part of the circulatory system, while the pulmonary system oxygenates the blood.
