The impurities in air and water are affecting your body in many ways. Heart-related problems have become one of the deadliest diseases in the country. The deaths from cardiovascular diseases in 1990 were 2,26 million in India. Last year (2020), it reached 4.77 million. It is expected to increase even more considering the present conditions.
According to statistics, pulmonary and heart diseases claimed 46,811 lives in Karnataka in 2014. In recent years, the numbers have only increased. In Bangalore, 26 patients who recovered from Covid 19 suffered a heart attack 7 to 8 weeks past recovery. Amid this crisis, everyone’s priority is to find the top heart hospital in Bangalore.
People who are 30 years old and above that have an unhealthy lifestyle have multiple comorbidities after the Corona infection. Bangalore has seen more deaths because of the comorbidities like lung failure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, etc.
The number of people suffering from cardiovascular diseases is increasing every year, and so is the need for hospitals specialized to test/diagnose and treat these conditions. The demand for cardiologists has also gone up in recent years. And since 2020 and the explosion of coronavirus around the world, the demand has shot up.
To find out the hospital which is fully equipped to test and treat all kinds of cardiovascular diseases, you need to check the following things in a hospital. If you find that all the tests are available in that hospital, it means they are entirely ready to test and treat every kind of heart disease.
The common tests to diagnose heart conditions are:
- Blood tests
- Electrocardiogram (ECG)
- Exercise stress test
- Echocardiogram (ultrasound)
- Nuclear cardiac stress test
- Coronary angiogram
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Coronary Computed Tomography Angiogram (CCTA)
If the hospital has these tests available, they are able to analyze and understand your conditions and prescribe the medicines and treatments.
The ECG or electrocardiogram is one of the common tests one goes through if s/he has a heart condition. The ECG measures the heart’s activity at rest position. It provides your doctor with a clear picture of the heart rate and rhythm of the heart. If there are some issues like enlargement of the heart, i.e., hypertrophy due to blood pressure, you can use ECG to diagnose it.
The symptoms of heart diseases include hypertension, palpitations, chest pain, etc. After looking at the tests and treatments available in the hospital, you must look for doctors who are specialized in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
The type of doctors who treat heart-related issues are:
- Cardiologist Specialist
- Interventional Cardiologist
- Pediatric Cardiologist
Some doctors specialize in different cardiovascular diseases, but you need to check for these four specialists. These doctors have the experience and expertise of treating different heart conditions and knowledge about the treatments. While making appointments, specify the doctor you need to consult.
If the hospital you chose has these tests, treatments, and doctors, you can definitely say that it is the top heart hospital in Bangalore. There will be at least two to three hospitals that complete these requirements in your city, and you can easily get an appointment there. And before fixing your appointment in that hospital, go through the reviews about the hospital and doctors there. You can find the reviews on Google or any other medical review/forum website.
