Tips for maintaining a healthy heart & surgical procedures for heart complications

  • Recommended Surgical Procedures for different heart conditions

Unhealthy eating, lack of exercising, high pollution level, and stress; all contribute to bad cardiovascular health.

Though medical science has achieved many milestones in treating unhealthy or improper functioning hearts, still we need to take care of our heart while making some basic changes in our lifestyle. We can also include regular health check-ups to ensure good cardiovascular health.

Follow these tips to keep your heart healthy:

Exercising

To keep your heart pumping in perfect rhythm, you need to spend at least 30 minutes in exercising like cardio, walking, or running. You can do it while watching your favourite TV programmes or listening to music.

Drink enough water every day

Drink 7-8 glasses of water to keep your body hydrated and energetic, resulting in the proper functioning of your heart. You can take a water bottle with you to sip up the water frequently.

Eat healthy food

Raw veggies, fruits, whole wheat bread, low-fat oils, and avoiding red meat contribute to maintaining good cholesterol level in your blood. Whereas, high cholesterol level leads to an unhealthy heart.

Quit smoking and consume limited alcohol

Do you know that smoking is one of the biggest factors that contribute to bad cardiovascular health? No matter you are a chain smoker or an occasional smoker, you need to quit it asap as it is one of the major habits decreasing the life of your heart. Smoke comes out of the cigarettes sticks in the muscles of your heart tissues, makes it weak to pump up the blood throughout the body. Even alcoholism is one of the major contributors to bad heart health,

Maintain BMI

The percentage of your body fat is a primary indicator of your good heart health. Body Mass Index or BMI indicates the fat percentage that covered your body. A balanced diet, regular exercising helps you to maintain your BMI to a healthy extent. BMI between 18.5 and 25 are considered at a healthy point.

Cut down refined sugar and salt

Sugar and sodium is the nutritional part of all-natural foods like fruits and vegetables. But, do you know that added or refined sugar is more harmful to our health in comparison to natural sugar. Added sugar increases calories only, without adding extra nutrition to it. To maintain healthy weight and fat, you must cut down on processed sugar and sodium.

Stay positive

Most importantly, you need to stay positive and stress-free to maintain good health of your heart. A stress-free mind keeps blood pressure in level, promoting excellent heart condition.

People with serious heart conditions, are advised to go through some invasive and non-invasive surgical procedures, which include:

  • Heart surgery bypass

In this surgery, blood vessels from your leg or arm are taken to bypass the flow of blood, resulting in easier blood flow.

  • Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs)

Like a pacemaker, a device is implanted under the skin in your chest to give a shock to your heart ventricles in order to help constant pumping.

  • Heart valve repair or replacement

The doctor may repair or cut the damaged portion of the valve and reconnect it for proper functioning. A prosthetic, new valve can be implanted if the exiting valve is totally damaged.

  • Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT), or biventricular pacing

Biventricular pacing is used to coordinate the pumping function with the help of left and right ventricles in the lower chamber of the heart.

  • Ventricular Assist Devices (VADs)

This technique uses a mechanical pump that helps to pump blood from the lower chamber of our heart to the rest of the body.

  • Heart Transplant

Heart transplant surgery remains as an only option when your heart is completely blocked and cannot be survived with any of the above-mentioned medical procedures.

You need to adopt a healthy lifestyle to keep your heart working in normal rhythm. Else, in any of the critical situation, you can take expert’s advice from one of the best cardiologists serving at the heart specialist branch of Park Hospital in Delhi & Gurgaon.

M-Health: My Interpretation

If we trace our way back in time, we realise how essential it was for us to be able to make frequent visits to the hospital to collect reports. However, following digitalisation, this scenario has drastically changed. The advent of mobile health operating system has enabled us to receive our health updates with just a few swipes. The ease of information that technology has brought in is massive.

When you talk about M-Health, ‘M’ denotes mobile. ‘M’ also means ‘me’. It is the revolutionised healthcare mechanism that is personalised and comes with the promise of modern technology. Moreover, the reason why M-Health requires mass awareness is because of the collective improvement of health it can bring around the world. Mobile health makes full use of computing technology for a variety of health-related purposes.

India at a Glance

In order to understand the penetration of mobile health in India, it is important to have an overall view of India as a country. First, India is the seventh largest country by demography and has the highest population in the world. Being the fastest developing economy in the world, it is readily accessible by land, air and water.

Over the centuries, there has been a significant fusion of cultures across the nation. Thus, today India is multilingual and multicultural with a blend of many religions. However, one significant reason why India has gained exposure in recent years is for medical tourism.

New Technology + New Trends

Some consumer-owned technologies for mHealth include tablets, mobile phones, iPads, Smart TV and laptops. As mobile technology has gathered pace, there are several potable wearable biometric sensors that have surfaced in the recent years like activity trackers, smartwatches, smart clothing, patches or tattoos and even ingestible and smart implants.

Why “DIGITALISATION” Will WORK.

There is no doubt why digitalisation will work in India. The range of applications and services supported by mHealth systems is undoubtedly aligned with the digital parameters. If we draw a comparison between India and USA, a user spends around 200 minutes every day on mobile internet in India, out of which 40% of people spend their time on social media and communication. Now, if we focus on this 40%, 38% of people spend their time on Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram and 2% on others. Furthermore, 30% of Indians spend their time on entertainment, whereas the remaining 30% of people spend their time on other categories like gaming, browser, news and commerce.

Now, when we bring our attention to the USA, a user spends 300 minutes a day on mobile internet, 33% on social media and communication, of which 18% spend their time on Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram and the remaining 12% on others. 18% of Americans also spend their time on entertainment and the rest 49% on other categories.

Integration of DIGITAL Concept in Hospitals

It is undeniably true that M-health fosters the integration of digital concept in hospitals, which is a complex intersection of different industries and stakeholders. For instance, the data collected from the patient is set via a remote monitoring device for authentication, which in turn is sent to healthcare storage and analytical server. This enables the doctor to look into the data and intervene for further proceedings.

In terms of digital health, mobile technologies act as a catalyst to connect and integrate a dedicated chain of care including health informatics, wireless health, telehealth (like telemedicine and telecare) and health telematics.

What I See…

As per my vision, there are several aspects of digital health, namely, clinical trials, mHealth, wellness, Telehealth-care or Remote monitoring, Wearables, Health Analytics, Visualisation and so on.

Primary Health Care

Primary Health care, which is the building block of the health system is the range of services that communities receive on a regular and ongoing basis from medical practitioners to stay healthy, get better and manage ongoing illnesses. In India, the ratio between doctors and patients is 1:1700.  Given the existing range of primary health care centres in India, around 40,000 villages went digital in 2018 despite our struggle to integrate digitalisation in healthcare. Now, it is high time that the equipment of all primary health care centres is set up with internet connectivity. Moreover, the ANM workers, who are the first line responders should also be provided with smartphones with a proper internet connection. Additionally, all health care providers must be taught the need and importance of connecting with patient and doctors through a digital platform. The government should also devise programs to reward people who achieve great milestones in using the digital platform. This will encourage a gradual shift towards the digital world.

PHC Hurdles

One of the biggest challenges faced by societies worldwide is the inability to make high-quality healthcare affordable and accessible to all. In this regard, there are several hurdles that are faced by the primary healthcare centers in certain areas like health education, promotion of nutrition, basic sanitation protocols, requirements and needs in terms of mother and child health, overcoming social stigmas of health practices, prevention of communicable diseases, immunization, appropriate RX for injuries and many more.

Safety

In terms of safety, users can co-create risk as well as value. For instance, patients face unavoidable dangers of false expertise, unwarranted trust in junk apps, unjustified trust in systems or their overseers, or in terms of dependency and self-reliance. On the other hand, for professionals, there are risks of under the counter clinical transactions, inappropriate tools, failure to integrate hand-held and organisational data and failure to define lines of responsibility.

 

Benefits of Telehealth (TELL – ME)

We are all aware of the strenuous hours that it typically takes to see the doctor for barely twenty minutes, that approximately includes 37 minutes of travel time, 64 minutes of waiting at the clinic and around 20 minutes to see the doctor. On the contrary, with Telehealth, people can avoid those long two hours of wait time at the doctor’s office.

However, m-Health comes with its own benefits and challenges. For instance, it is cheaper, reacts faster to emergencies, saves time on travelling, reduces quack practices, allows medical practitioners to attend more patients simultaneously, builds confidence among relatives and also provides value-added services for your mobile. On the other hand, it also encourages unnecessary questions, thereby increasing call cost, hampers doctor-patient privileges, needs super-fast internet, gives rise to payment or medico-legal issues and also motivates people against visiting the hospital during actual need.

Currently, we are at the tip of the iceberg with 97000 health apps. So, you can very well imagine what all we can do if we utilise almost everything with the help of AI, AR or VR. However, we need to cautious that no titanic comes and hits it. After all, every new technology has either of the two futures, ‘DISTINCTION’ or ‘EXTINCTION’.

Nothing is more essential than the satisfaction of our patients. Patients are equally satisfied with video calls as they are more personalised and interactive. They are often happier since they save a lot of money, travelling and stress. Moreover, as compared to personal visits, the ease of interaction also increases the frequency of interaction. Patients also feel more confident and positive about their self and health and leave no stone unturned in advising their friends and family about virtual call consultation.

My Ideas

As per my opinion, doctors should write two prescriptions- Rx and m Rx. Moreover, special groups should be created for women, kids, patients suffering from diabetes, teenagers, pregnant females, elderly, special care, disability and so on. Several initiatives should be taken and consistent efforts should be made in educating people about digital skills. Exposure to the app should be provided by the first-hand experience through healthcare providers. Free WiFi should be provided by all hospitals and repayment must be done by health insurance

companies. Last but not least, the government should seek to intervene as it is extremely essential to bring about digitalisation in healthcare.
