Our Clinical Cardiology team consists of dedicated cardiologists capable to handle any cardiac emergency in the Heart Command Centre. Besides, early heart disease detection program and community outreach program have been designed to catch the disease before it can harm an individual.
We efficiently address the needs of cardiac treatments and the growing number of patients possessing cardiac ailments in India. Deshmukh Hospital facilitates from the new borns to adults, by providing prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.
Our cardiac care solutions range covers the comprehensive cardiology including Paediatric cardiology.
Pediatric cardiology at a National Health Organization is about providing the diagnosis and treatment of cardiology diseases in infants and children. Deshmukh Hospital provides multidisciplinary care that offers dietetics, socialist staff nurses, physicians, and therapists. Pediatric cardiologists in India specialize in diagnosing and treating heart diseases in babies, children, and infants. Children can be affected by many heart problems. Some infants are born with some structural defects. Pediatric cardiologists specialize in diagnosing and treating these defects in the heart.
Heart ailments and problems among children below the age of 18, although not very common, are increasing at an alarming rate in the country today.
These may be arising from a variety of factors, including, but not limited to the following:
Cardiac ailments in children can take a variety of forms, from minor ailments that can be cured by short- term medication, to ones that may require surgical intervention. Pediatric Cardiologists are trained specifically to diagnose, treat and prevent heart ailments in children.They work closely with primary care paediatricians to provide comprehensive care.
Heart problems in children are very rare and different from that in adults. In most cases, children are diagnosed with congenital heart defects. Congenital heart defects are the most commonly diagnosed birth defect. The defects meddle with the structure of the heart which includes the valves, arteries and veins of the heart.
Children’s heart problems differ from adults. Deshmukh Hospital’s experts in pediatric cardiology are well trained to diagnose and treat the desired heart problems of the children. Pediatric cardiologists work closely with primary care pediatricians to give comprehensive care to child patients. Deshmukh Hospital’s pediatric cardiologists work exclusively to treat patients with heart problems. If your pediatrician suggests that your child needs to check with expert cardiologists, Deshmukh Hospital would be the best option to choose for better diagnosis and treatment with the best possible care.
Some of the commonly diagnosed pediatric heart conditions and their treatment include:
This condition is caused by narrowing of the aorta. The condition is treated by removing the narrowed parts or with the insertion of a stent into the narrowed vessel.
A deformed and narrow heart valve that restricts blood flow. The pediatric cardiologist can choose from surgical and non-surgical means for valve replacement. Balloon valvuloplasty is one of the treatment methods used to open the valve.
Arrhythmia refers to irregular heart rhythm. Treatment options for arrhythmia include medications, pacemaker implantation, catheter ablation or removal of the tissue causing the condition
Endocarditis refers to the infection of the heart which can be treated with medication. Surgery can be an option but not the most preferred.
A condition caused due to a thickened heart that doesn’t pump the blood well is cardiomyopathy. Treatment options for the condition include medication and surgery.
The heart vessel, pulmonary artery, that carries blood from the heart to the lungs narrows down obstructing the blood flow. This condition can be treated with the help of an angioplasty. Surgical treatment options are opted for in case of failure of non-surgical options.
Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD) present several types of conditions. Some of these conditions may develop immediately or lead to any other disease symptoms within the same group.
It is an irregular heart rhythm or heartbeat
It is the chest pain that occurs due to reduced blood flow to the heart
It is a sudden heart blockage affecting the heart’s oxygen supply and blood flow
It occurs when the heart can’t relax or contract normally
It occurs when heart structure or function is present in a person from birth
This condition affects one’s arteries that provide fresh blood supply to heart muscles
In this condition, heart muscle walls become thick and instability develops with blood flow and relaxation of muscles in the heart
This is a heart failure type in which the heart becomes larger and can’t pump blood normally
In this condition, blood leaks back via the mitral valve in the heart during contractions
It occurs when mitral valve bulges within the left atrium of the heart while contracting and leading to mitral regurgitation
It is narrowing of the heart valve that leads to blockage of blood flow while leaving the heart
It is the narrowing of the pulmonary artery that further reduces blood flow from the right ventricle to the pulmonary artery
It is a strep throat complication that causes heart inflammation. It also affects the regular functioning of heart valves
It is an irregular rhythm that may enhance the risk of stroke
In this condition, radiation to the chest may damage heart valves and blood vessels
It is an enlargement or a bulge in an artery that can cause rupture and bleeding in the affected area
It makes arteries narrow while reducing blood flow to the limbs
In this condition, plaque occurs on the blood vessels, narrowing them while limiting the oxygen-containing blood
It impacts the blood flow to and from the kidneys while leading to high blood pressure
It causes damage to the veins that flow blood from arms and feet back to the heart. It may lead to varicose veins and leg swelling
It may break loose and become dangerous if they move to the pulmonary artery
It leads to inflammation and blood clots in the legs. It may even result in gangrene
This disorder can lead to blood clot formation too quickly and further lead to excessive clotting or bleeding
It is possible to prevent and manage some of these health conditions that are types of cardiovascular diseases. All you need to do is make some lifestyle changes. However, some conditions can be life-threatening and need emergency surgery. So, it’s best to consult the cardiologist immediately in case of any heart issue.
The tests required for diagnosing heart diseases depend on the type of condition your doctor diagnose as you have. However, the general diagnosis or tests for any type of heart disease are:
The ECG helps in recording electrical signals that help your doctor to determine any irregularities in the normal rhythm and structure of the heart
It is a non-invasive examination that includes an ultrasound of the chest and also shows detailed images of the heart’s function and structure
It is done using a Holter monitor, which is a portable device used for recording continuous ECG for 24 to 72 hours. Holter monitoring is used for detecting heart rhythm irregularities that usually don’t surface through an ECG exam
This test consists of raising heart rate with medicine or exercises while performing heart tests and imaging to see how your heart responds
This test involves the use of a short tube that is inserted within an artery or vein in the arm or leg. This hollow, flexible and long tube is then inserted within the sheath. With the help of X-ray images on a monitor, the doctor can guide the catheter through an artery until it reaches the heart
The pressure in heart chambers is measured, dyed and injected. The dye is seen on the X-ray to help doctors see the blood flow in the heart, valves and blood vessels for checking abnormalities
This test is done to check heart issues. In a cardiac CT scan, the patient has to lie down on a table within a doughnut-shaped machine.
