Bhatia Hospital inaugurated a cath lab department to cater to the increasing number of patients with heart-related issues in the city. The new facility will enable the hospital to offer angiography and angioplasty facilities within its premises now. The cardiology department will have heart specialists and anaesthesiologists on duty 24×7. The cath lab treatment will be carried out by Dr Anuj Basin and his team of professional expert interventional cardiologists and surgeons. Given the high volume of cardiovascular cases the hospital receives, the advanced lab will benefit a significant number of patients. Globally, cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in most countries. In India, more than 17 lakh people die every year due to heart diseases and by 2030, the figure is expected to increase with 2.3 crore deaths.
Bhatia Hospital will be using the advanced technology of Philips Azurion series new generation image guidance in diagnostic, interventional and minimally invasive surgery procedures for clinical application areas including vascular, non-vascular, cardiovascular and neuro related procedures. The technology will perform cardiac imaging applications like diagnostics, interventional and minimally invasive surgery procedures.
