Data reveals that heart diseases are on ever increase, number of cases have gone upto 300 % in last couple of years. Courtesy sedentary life style, work pressure, lack of exercise and also lack of knowledge how to act in case of angina pain.
Surprisingly, the majority of heart patients these days are between 35-55 years, whereas it was above 55 years a few years back. Around 60 % of angina patients’ life can be saved if given proper treatment provided promptly.
Dr Anil Khanna managing director of Ajanta Hospital believes that the govt. hospitals are playing a vital role but these hospitals are overburdened with patients. Unfortunately, the private sector hospitals have yet not been able to do play a vital role in heart diseases. More often we come to hear that either a person had a massive heart attack he could not survive or he was rushed to higher private centres in New Delhi or other metros. It was a dire need to fill the gap and hence Ajanta Cardiac care centre has come up with advance cardiac cath lab to save life in the time of angina pain or attack.
