Technology & Infrastructure

 Cardiology Tech

Our state of the art Catheterisation lab is equipped with the latest machineries catering to both simple and complex coronary angioplasties. Newer cardiac interventional techniques like Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR), Rotablation or Intravascular lithotripsy of hardened calcium deposits, and Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the coronary arteries, Transcatheter Aortic Valve implantations (TAVI) can also be executed here. Facilities like intra aortic balloon pump and emergency cardiac surgeries are available within hospital. Our Interventional team is available 24/7 to help patients with any cardiac emergency. Availbility of Intensivists and other subspecialities like Nephrology and Neurology who work in synchrony with our Cardiologists help us manage complex cases.

    What is a heart attack?
    Heart attack occurs when blood supply to the heart is suddenly blocked, usually by a blood clot. It is also called Myocardial Infarction (MI) and is a medical emergency treated without delay.
    What are the symptoms of a heart attack?
    • Chest pain or discomfort at the center of the chest
    • Pain in the left arm and shoulder, neck, jaw or back
    • Sweating
    • Feeling of weakness or dizziness
    • Difficulty in breathing
    • Rapid heartbeat
    • Nausea or vomiting
    Can a heart attack occur even without any symptoms?

    Yes, it can – it is known as ‘Silent MI’

    What are the risk factors for heart disease?

    According to American Heart Association, the major risk factors are:

    • Age above 65 years
    • Men have a higher risk than women
    • Positive family history
    • Cigarette smoking
    • High blood pressure
    • High cholesterol
    • Inactive lifestyle
    • Overweight
    • Diabetes
    What is Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)?

    When the blood vessels (called coronary arteries) which supply blood and oxygen to the heart are narrowed, it causes CAD, which can also cause a heart attack.

    What is high blood pressure or hypertension?

    It is a disorder in which the pressure in the arteries is persistently high.

    How to reduce high blood pressure?

    Lead an active lifestyle, don’t be a couch potato!Opt for a low salt diet, maintain an appropriate weight, and avoid alcohol intake and smoking.

    What is a heart murmur?

    It is the sound made by blood circulating through heart chambers and valves. These can be heard via a stethoscope. A heart murmur can occur in various cardiac diseases. Depending upon the type of murmur, your cardiologist will guide you regarding further evaluation, if required.

    What is Electrocardiogram (ECG)?

    ECG is a non-invasive diagnostic test that measures and records the electrical activity of the heart.

    What is cardiac stress test (also known as a treadmill test)?

    It is used to diagnose coronary artery disease. During this test, you will have to walk on a treadmill while the physician will regularly monitor your ECG, heart rate, and blood pressure.

    What is Echocardiogram?

    It is commonly known as Echo. It is a non-invasive and painless test. It gives precise information about the heart structure, valves, and the pumping capacity of the heart. It is a very comfortable test in which you have to lie on an examination table, lubricating jelly is rubbed to the chest, and a probe (like a thick blunt pen) is placed on the chest, which picks up the cardiac activity.

    What are healthy heart foods?

    Oats, Almonds, Green leafy vegetables, Soy Protein, Olive oil, Tomatoes, Whole grains( wheat, pulses), Tofu, Brown rice and Tuna.

    What are the exercises to maintain a healthy heart?
    • Aerobic exercises for 20 -30 minutes daily, at least 3-4 times per week
    • Remember to warm up before your workout as well as a cool down after it
    • Gradually increase your activity level
    • According to Harvard Health Publication, Yoga does have beneficial effects on the heart as well
    • Most importantly, talk to your doctor so that you do not overexert yourself
    How to increase physical activity?
    • Avoid using the escalator; instead, use the ramp or stairs
    • Use a bicycle or walk rather than using a vehicle for short distances
    • Make the weekends more productive- choose an outdoor activity with your friends or family
    Does stress contribute to cardiac disease?

    Yes, it does. Stress can be emotional or physical. While it is not always easy to avoid stress, you can reduce it and maintain a positive attitude, which will help you combat stress.
