Heart Care, Treatment Services & Facilities
Cardiothoracic CCU : 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.
Electrophysiology : 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.
Non-invasive cardiology : 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.
Heart & Cardiovascular Diagnostic Services
It is believed at Apollo Hospitals that the first step to cure is accurate diagnosis of the disorder. Investment in the latest medical and diagnostic equipment along with upgradation of skills of personnel is always ensured.
The following are some of our Cardiac Diagnostic Services:
320 slice CT Scanner : The 320 Slice CT Scanner is the 7th of its kind in the world, and a first for India. It is available only at a few leading hospitals across the world. The 320 Slice CT Scanner can image the entire heart in a single rotation providing volumetric temporal resolution that is superior to multi-slice temporal resolution available today, resulting in clearer image quality. It shows not only whole organ anatomy, but also the changes in the entire organ over time resulting in a better, faster, more complete diagnosis. In addition, it can perform a comprehensive neurological examination providing arterial, venous and whole brain perfusion in a single study with both less contrast and radiation dose. It is especially helpful in identifying the level of heart disease in people with high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure but with few overt signs and symptoms. This facility is currently available at Apollo Hospitals Chennai.KNOW MORE

Saving A Child’s Heart
Why Save A Child’s Heart? Pediatric Cardiology has been a neglected speciality in the country despite a massive disease burden. Consanguinity, viral infections like mumps, measles and rubella, absolute lack of awareness, and high treatment costs are some of the important factors contributing to the high disease burden.
Child Heart Surgery Child heart surgery in India is not affordable to all. It is estimated that over 250,000 children born in India each year with heart disease and less than 5% of them receive the care that they need. Most of these children succumb to the disease without celebrating even their first birthday.
In contrast if child heart surgeries are done on time, these children can grow up to become normal adults.
SACHi – Saving a Child’s Heart Initiative Saving A Child’s Heart initiative (SACHi) is one of Asia’s largest voluntary organizations, dedicated to paediatric cardiac care and child heart surgery for the underprivileged. In order to combat the escalating problem of congenital cardiac issues in children, Dr. Prathap C. Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Group of Hospitals established the Children’s Cardiac Wing in the hospitals. SACHi exists today due to his boundless vision towards removing barriers that deny any child the right to breathe freely, play, study and most importantly, live a full life. Ours is a story of positive change that has only just begun its journey. As this mission grows, it is future generations that will see more and more children growing into adults leading healthy, happy, rewarding lives!
Established in 2003, SACHi aims to provide early diagnosis, treatment, surgery, post-operative care and financial support to children from economically weak sections of society. SACHi has till date touched 50,000 lives. Our goal is that every child irrespective of community or background, is provided cutting edge treatment and operative care. Our training workshops not only enable our medical workforce, but also educate people on heart care and heart disease prevention in the most backward areas of the country.
Ours is a story of positive change that has only just begun its journey. As this mission grows, it is future generations that will see more and more children growing into adults leading healthy, happy, rewarding lives!
