    Gastroenterology is the study of intestinal-tract disorders. It concerns the study and treatment of diseases of the stomach and intestines and their associated organs, such as the esophagus, rectum, gallbladder, and bile duct.

    Dermatology is concerned with diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the skin. Dermatologists also study the structure and function of the skin, and the relationship between skin pathologies and malfunctions of other organs of the body. Dermatology often overlaps the practice of other medical specialties, e.g., neurology and internal medicine.

    Cardiology dealis with heart diseases and disorders. There have been many surgical advances in cardiology, including heart transplants and the use of artificial hearts. Current diagnostic methods include chest percussion (tapping) and auscultation, electrocardiography, and echocardiography (see ultrasound). Cardiologists provide continuing care of heart patients, doing basic heart-function studies, supervising therapy, including drug therapy, and working closely with heart surgeons.

    Gastroscopy involves inspection of the interior of the stomach with a gastroscope. A sedative is given 30 minutes to 1 hour before the examination. The patient is awake during the procedure, which is not painful but is uncomfortable and exhausting.
    After the procedure is completed the patient should be provided with rest and an opportunity to sleep. During the first two hours after gastroscopy the patient's vital signs are checked periodically, especially if biopsies have been taken during the procedure.

    Colonoscopy is a medical procedure where a long, flexible, tubular instrument called the colonoscope is used to view the entire inner lining of the colon (large intestine) and the rectum. The procedure may take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours depending on how easy it is to advance the scope through the colon. During the colonoscopy, sedative and the pain medications will keep the patient very drowsy and relaxed. The procedure is not painful.

    Echocardiography is a diagnostic test that uses ultrasound waves to create an image of the heart muscle. Ultrasound waves that rebound or echo off the heart can show the size, shape, and movement of the heart's valves and chambers as well as the flow of blood through the heart. Echocardiography may show such abnormalities as poorly functioning heart valves or damage to the heart tissue from a past heart attack.

    Spirometry is a type of pulmonary function test that measures the amount of air taken in (volume) and exhaled as a function of time. During a spirometry test, a patient places their mouth over the mouthpiece of the spirometer, takes a deep breath in, and then blows out as forcefully as possible. Spirometry gives health care professionals two important numbers that may indicate problems with lung function.

    Pain Management
    Pain serves as an alert to potential or actual damage to the body. The definition for damage is quite broad; pain can arise from injury as well as disease. After the message is received and interpreted, further pain can be counter-productive. Pain can have a negative impact on a person's quality of life and impede recovery from illness or injury. Unrelieved pain can become a syndrome in its own right and cause a downward spiral in a person's health and outlook. Managing pain properly facilitates recovery, prevents additional health complications, and improves an individual's quality of life.
