Major Procedures

Angiography

Angiography is a procedure that uses X-ray imaging to investigate or examine your blood vessels for a potential heart condition. Angiography is generally a very safe procedure, although minor side effects are common. Angiography helps to diagnose or investigate a number of problems affecting the blood vessels, including: atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries), which could mean that a person is at risk of having a stroke or heart attack. Angiography was performed in 46% of patients aged 30-49 years, in 53% of those aged 50 to 64 years, in 33% of those aged 65 to 74 years, and in only 18% of those aged > or = 75 years

 

Angioplasty

Angioplasty opens blocked arteries and restores normal blood flow to your heart muscle. It is not major surgery. Angioplasty involves widening the narrowed arteries to treat the condition.People with blockages in their heart arteries may need angioplasty if they are having lots of discomfort in their chest, or if their blockages put them at risk of a heart attack or of dying.

Pacemaker

A pacemaker is a small device that’s placed in the chest or abdomen to help control abnormal heart rhythms. This device uses electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate. Pacemakers are used to treat arrhythmias. Arrhythmias are problems with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. During an arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow, or with an irregular rhythm. A heartbeat that’s too fast is called tachycardia. A heartbeat that’s too slow is called bradycardia. During an arrhythmia, the heart may not be able to pump enough blood to the body. This can cause symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, or fainting. Severe arrhythmias can damage the body’s vital organs and may even cause loss of consciousness or death. A pacemaker can relieve some arrhythmia symptoms, such as fatigue and fainting. A pacemaker also can help a person who has abnormal heart rhythms resume a more active lifestyle.

Golden Hour

The golden hour is the period of time following a traumatic injury during which there is the highest likelihood that prompt medical and surgical treatment will prevent death.

In a cardiac arrest, the first sixty minutes is crucial for diagnosis and treatment. The first hour after the onset of heart attack is called the golden hour. Appropriate action within first 60 minutes of a heart attack can reverse its effects. Breathlessness without any chest discomfort, especially in diabetics.

How do you know if your having an early heart attack?

Catch the signs early

  • Pressure, tightness, pain, or a squeezing or aching sensation in your chest or arms that may spread to your neck, jaw or back.
  • Nausea, indigestion, heartburn or abdominal pain.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Cold sweat.
  • Lightheadedness or sudden dizziness.

Specialized Programs:

  • Early detection of Heart Disease Program
  • Executive Health Checkup
  • Community Outreach Program
  • Women’s Heart Care Program
  • Cardiac And Diabetes (CAD) Care Program

Non- Invasive Test :

       Electrocardiogram (ECG)

An ECG reads your heart’s electrical impulses. It shows how well your heart is beating.

  •   How its done?

Small sticky dots and wire leads are put on your chest, arms and legs. The leads are attached to an ECG machine which records the electrical impulses and prints them out on paper.

  • Its Purpose is to get the information about whether the heart muscle cells are conducting electricity
  • It helps the doctor to understand the health of the heart and check for any abnormalities, by analyzing the shape of the electrical waves.

That’s one of the reasons that an ECG is done as soon as possible when a patient presents with chest pain.

        Echocardiogram (ECHO) – 2D

An echocardiogram uses electrodes to check your heart rhythm and ultrasound technology to see how blood  moves through your heart.

  • ts Purpose is to check how your heart’s chambers and valves are pumping blood throughyour heart.
  • It helps the doctor to diagnose heart conditions.
  • It is done to establish diagnosis of some cardiovascular diseases to detect complications of cardiovascular diseases.

         Exercise Stress Test (TMT)

TMT is also called Stress Test. An exercise stress test is used to determine how well your heart responds during times when it’s working its hardest.

  •  How it works?

During the test, you’ll be asked to exercise — typically on a treadmill — while you’re hooked up to an electrocardiogram (EKG) machine.

  •  It helps the doctor to determine if your heart receives enough oxygen and proper blood flow when it needs it most, such as when you are exercising.
