The Centres have dedicated Cardiothoracic CCUs with 1:1 nursing ratio, round the clock. They are well equipped with bedside color doppler, echocardiography system, continuous oxygen supply, infusion pumps, defibrillator, ventilators, invasive as well as non-invasive pressure monitoring systems, temporary pace maker (transdermal as well as transvenous), intra aortic balloon pump, ABG (Blood Gas machine) and electrolytes analysis machines.
Electrophysiological studies have been used for decades to evaluate cardiac arrhythmias and to get a basic understanding of their mechanisms. Venticular tachyarrhythmias are the commonest cause of sudden cardiac death (SCD). The patients are investigated by an EP study and, if required, provided with implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) as a life saving device.
We have capabilities for multi-site pacing for patients of Heart Failure and Dilated cardiomyopathy. Recently a bilateral pacing was performed for intermittent Atrial Fibrillation.
For plugging the leaking valves for the patients who can not undergo other surgical and interventional options. AGHI will strive to perform the first Mitra-Clipping in the region/country after statutory approvals from the Government.
TAVI (Trans-catheter Aortic Valve Implantation)
Patients requiring Aortic Valve replacement having other medical conditions, which make it too risky or otherwise unsuitable for conventional procedures would be highly benefited by TAVI.
Complex angioplasties like left main stenting , long segment disease stenting and Rotablation can be done with IVUS which otherwise would have been done with open heart surgeries.
AGHI will strive to perform the first heart transplant in the eastern region under their Organ Transplant Program.
The Non-invasive Cardiac Laboratory is run by senior cardiologists who are dedicated to the work in the field. The procedures done here include stress echoes, dobutamine stress echoes, vascular dopplers, trans-oesophageal echoes, intra-operative TEE and fetal echoes.
