AMRITSAR: Amandeep Medicity is receiving patients daily with complicated diseases, which most of the other hospitals in the area would not dare to treat.
One such case was treated few days ago in Amandeep Medicity. Jasbir Kaur, a female patient was brought to Amandeep Medicity in a very serious condition. She fell down at home due to sudden cardiac arrest. Her heart beat was almost negligible at that time. Emergency staff attended the case and brought back her heart beat. After that Dr. Yadwinder Singh, Head and Director, Cardiac Department, Amandeep Medicity put a MRI compatible dual chamber stent to that patient by giving a tiny incision below her left shoulder. The patient is alright now and discharged.
Dr Yadwinder Singh, MBBS, MD, DM (Cardiac) said while explaining this case, “Normally, pacemakers are not compatible for MRI because there is magnetic field in the MRI Machine which may damage the pacemaker or sometimes, the pacemaker lead can get heated, which may cause damage to the internal parts of the heart. Thus, the pacemaker may not work properly. Amandeep Medicity is using latest technology dual chamber pacemakers for its patients which are compatible for latest 3 Tesla MRIs. Till now, 1.5Tesla MRIs available in most of the diagnostic centers across the country but the future technology is of 3 Tesla MRI. These dual chamber pacemakers are fully compatible for 3 Tesla MRIs. In several cases, apart from cardiac problems, old age people have many complications viz. Spine, Brain Tumor, Hysteria. Such patients may require MRI after pacemaker and this was not possible with the old technique pacemakers. Here in Amandeep Medicity, we treat our patients with latest technique equipments and technology, keeping in mind, their future needs and the changing scenario of the treatment facilities so that our patients may not have any difficulty in the future.”
Dr. Yadvinder Singh informed that Amandeep Medicity is equipped with all the required systems & technologies for treatment of all type of diseases.
“Cardiac Department is fully functional & now Cardiac Vascular Thoracic Surgeon Dr. Bhavna, who is a mature CVTS with more than 19 years of experience on hands, has also joined the Cardiac Team of Amandeep Medicity. Now facilities like Stinting, Pacemaker, valve change and bypass surgery etc. will be available under one roof,” he added.
