Editorial Adviser Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation perspiration & inspiration

Anniversary is the celebration of trust, service and relation India’s Healthcare Sector To Touch $77 Billion By 2012

India’s healthcare sector is projected to grow at 23% annually to become a $77-billion industry. The report, jointly prepared by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Assocham) and Yes Bank, says that India’s healthcare industry has grown at 9.3% per annum during 2000-09.  “Driven by various catalysts such as increasing population, rising income levels, changing demographics and illness profile, the healthcare industry is expected to move to levels of $77 billion in the next three years  Healthcare services sector includes firms that are dependent upon and provide corollary services to hospitals, and is currently approximated at $1 billion. According to Yes Bank and Assocham, diagnostics would add $2.5 billion to the healthcare industry by 2012.  A mounting number of public and private healthcare facilities are expected to push demand for the industry, accounting for another $6.7 billion in this period.   With a rising demand for affordable quality healthcare, the penetration of health insurance is poised to experience an exponential growth to emerge as a $3-billion industry in the next three years.   “However, the corresponding growth in health infrastructure is yet to match the basic healthcare facilities in many other countries. For instance, the present number of nine beds per 10,000 people in India is far behind the world average of 40 beds per 10,000 Any thoughts or questions you may have mail us: info@medgatetoday.com

Doctor gives the Patient

A New

Limb Life

Dr Ashwani Maichand How unbelievable and wonderful results come when technology meets expertise. And when it happens in the field of healthcare it changes lives. Such an example was set at B L Kapur Memorial hospital in the city on 26.2.11. A patient, Prem Narayan, aged 58 yrs, was suffering from a tumor of thigh bone (femur).He was having severe pain in his thigh and was hardly walking. He had to take leave from his office and was on bed rest for last few weeks. When he contacted some nearby hospital he was advised to undergo amputation from hip joint level. The patient and the family were obviously very distraught because amputation meant not only disability but also loss of job. Then he came to BLK Hospital and met Dr Ashwani Maichand , senior Joint Replacement Surgeon, who after clinical assessment told the family that the limb could be saved.

The surgery, Total Femur Replacement, was done by Dr Ashwani Maichand on 26.2.11. The surgery lasted six hours, required four units of blood and patient was perfectly fine in post operative period. The surgeons removed the thigh bone (femur) completely and replaced with artificial femur made of titanium. The hip and knee joints were also replaced with artificial joints. It is a very rare and complex surgery and is done at very few centers in the world. The patient was perfectly fine after surgery. He was able to stand and walk with a walker 48 hrs after the operation. He is undergoing intense physiotherapy training so as to strengthen his muscles.

The implant (the artificial bone) used was especially designed for this patient according to his height and weight. The implant was made of titanium to keep it strong and lightweight. Dr Maichand told, ‘ The beauty of the surgery is that we are able to give the patient a practically new limb which is tumor free and can make the patient stand within few days. But such extensive surgeries need really good back up like efficient anesthesia team, a well equipped ICU & a vigilant oncology division.’ So gone are the days of amputations for cancer patients. Now with this technique patients with bone cancer can lead normal and dignified life.

Nasal insulin

Cycling seen as one of biggest causes of heart attacks

may prevent diabetes

Nasal insulin may offer a chance to prevent the onset of type 1 diabetes by inducing immune tolerance to insulin and thus preventing autoimmune destruction of pancreatic beta cells

14

Cycling has always been touted as being good for health, but now a study has found that it is actually one of the biggest triggers of heart attacks. The study, which analysed 36 pieces of research on everyday risks, proves that the “final straw” in bringing on a heart attack is spending time in traffic as a driver, cyclist or commuter. But of the three, cyclists are in greatest danger because they are more heavily exposed to pollution and are subjecting themselves to another major heart attack trigger, exercise. Traffic exposure was blamed for 7.4 percent of heart attacks, followed by physical exertion with 6.2 percent, while air pollution triggered between 5 percent and 7 percent of heart attacks, and drinking alcohol or coffee accounted for 5 percent. Other risk factors included negative emotions (3.9 percent), anger (3.1 percent), eating a heavy meal (2.7 percent), positive emotions (2.4 percent) and sexual activity (2.2 percent).

Soon, nasal spray vaccine to fight Alzheimer’’s, stroke Tel Aviv University researchers are working on a nasally delivered vaccine that promises to protect against Alzheimer’s as well as stroke. The new vaccine repairs vascular damage in the brain by using the body’’s own immune system and, in addition to its prophylactic effect, it can work even when Alzheimer’’s symptoms are already present.

Half of Men Have Genital HPV

FDA Approves New Drug to Treat COPD

Men at High Risk of Developing Most Common Type of Sexually Transmitted Infection, Study Finds About half of adult men have genital human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection that has been linked to certain cancers, according to a study funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Genital HPV is the most common type of sexually transmitted infection. Many people infected with HPV do not know they have it. There are many different strains of HPV.

More than 40 of them affect the genitals. Some types of genital HPV cause genital warts, while others can lead to cancer. Persistent infection with a high-risk strain of HPV is the leading cause of nearly all cervical cancers in w o m e n . Genital HPV may also lead to less common, but serious, cancers of the penis, anus, vulva, and vagina and some cancers of the oral cavity and head and neck.

Daliresp Will Be Sold in Pill Form to Treat Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease The FDA has approved a new treatment for people with worsening symptoms of severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a lung disorder that makes breathing difficult. The drug, roflumilast -- carrying the trade name Daliresp -- will be sold in pill form, unlike some other medications for COPD, which are inhaled. The FDA says roflumilast, a new drug class for COPD treatment, is an inhibitor of an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 4 (PDE-4).

Darvon, Darvocet Banned Controversial Painkiller Sunk by Dangerous Heart Side Effects The FDA has at last banned Darvon, Darvocet, and other brand/generic drugs containing propoxyphene -- a safetyplagued painkiller from the 1950s. New proof of heart side effects, in studies of healthy people taking normal doses of the drug, prompted the FDA to act.

Need to change the way healthcare is delivered in our country

Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty

I

Narayana Hrudayalaya

ndia needs 2.5 million heart surgeries and all the heart hospital in the country put together perform less than 90,000 heart surgeries and the rest die gradually over a period of time. To offer heart surgery to everyone we need to change the way healthcare is delivered in our country. The only solution is economy of scale. So w e built a 1000 bed heart hospital with the intension to perform 50-60 major heart surgeries a day. Now we perform 30-35 heart surgeries a day, by doing large number of heart surgeries in 24 dedicated operation theatres, we have emerged as the world’s largest heart hospital. Also we are able to break even by charging 1800$ per operation. However, our desire is to do the heart surgery for 800$. We are in the process of adding 30,000 beds in the next five-seven years and when we reach this number, we will be able to reduce the cost still further. And my message to the masses is that they should request the government to launch a health insurance in the lines of Yeshaswini insurance we launched eight years ago.

Current Trends in Healthcare

Youngest country in the world and India is the skill capital of the world, the real problems lies in the Quality & not Quantity of manpower. We are short of Doctors, Nurses, Paramedical, but i wonder that we continue to supply the same manpower to other countries like UK, USA, and Australia etc. It is very unfortunate that some healthcare group has taken licences as a business to migrate our qualified people. I request all such groups to stop such migration.

My Advice to Healthcare Professionals:Healthcare is a noble & gratifying profession and people in hospital and healthcare management must feel proud to be the part of these systems, which deals with the question of life and death. Always be a source of light – like stars on earth, be knowledgeful in and creative in talk, amiable and co-operative in relations. Always remember that, Human capital is more important than financial capital. Always practice – Leadership is Action and Not Position. You can’t become a star without dark sky. 30

Cancer does not mean Cancel.

Technology has changed the way we do surgeries, applying the most suitable and the right technique is what the skill is about. Robot assisted Laparoscopic surgeries, Laparoscopic surgeries and new techniques in Open surgeries are great developments in Urology but to put them to optimal use we need the right kind of patients otherwise doing it for the sake of using technology but not on an appropriate patient can bring disrepute to the surgery and the Dr Rishikesh R Pandya Consultant UroOncologist / Urologist technology. Awareness and patient education holds the key to this Fortis Hospital, Mulund and Kalyan, Mumbai success. For patients with terminally ill diseases we do not have a support system for the end of life care. As a Cancer care provider I try and put efforts to make my patients and their families to sail through the rough time of losing a dear one with as less overall pain as possible. I have a network of this patients group who participate actively in counseling and educating fellow patients. This is one of my ambitions to increase the group to such a large proportion to support as many patients as we can. Currently I offer my services as Consultant UroOncologist and Urologist through the Fortis group of hospitals in Mumbai. There will be practically no one who has not heard about the Fortis Hospitals. Fasted growing healthcare group in India and best part is with a vision. At the Mulund facility we just concluded a very successful 2 weeks program of awareness and screening called “Fight against Cancer”

My message to the common man is Cancer does not mean Cancel. Get yourself aware to lead a healthy life. Fear brings more pain and sorrow. Actively participate in understanding the disease from the doctor. Do not just go on blind faith although Doctors profession is still considered a noble profession it has become a debatable issue. Educate yourself because just money cannot buy health.

Dr Rishikesh R Pandya MCh Urology, Diplomate of National Board – Urology, UroOncology Fellowship, University of Toronto Laparoscopic Urology fellowship- Elisabethinen Hospital, Linz Austria. After basic qualifications in Mumbai I have worked in University of Toronto as fellow in UroOncology and then further enhanced surgical skills in Laparoscopic Urology by working at the Elisabethinen Hospital in Linz in Austria. On my return back to India I have dedicated most of my services as UroOncology specialist that deals with cancer of the GenitoUrinary System. In the first 10 common cancers – Prostate cancer, Kidney cancer and Urinary bladder cancer get mentioned all over the world especially in men above the age of 50 years, India is no exception. Lack of awareness is a major concern as fear, myths and ignorance lead to misery and death by cancer. To mention the work - I have done more than 200 UroOncological procedures. I have articles and chapters in UroOncological reference books. My strength and main area of interest is work at community level to create awareness and promote the fight against cancer specially Prostate Cancer. Cancer does not mean Cancel as it is commonly thought. 34

Allegic respiratoty disorders,in particular asthama are increasing in prevalence,which is a global phenomenon. Dr. N.Ashraf

Specialist in Chest Medicine

Dr.N.Ashraf is one of the leading Pulmonologist and chest physician spoke to Medgate Today about his research on Asthma. He is running a very successful hospital in short span of time in Delhi. Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the bronchial tubes (airways) that causes swelling and narrowing (constriction) of the airways. The result is difficulty breathing. The bronchial narrowing is usually either totally or at least partially reversible with treatments. Bronchial tubes that are chronically inflamed may become overly sensitive to allergens (specific triggers) or irritants (nonspecific triggers). The airways may become “twitchy” and remain in a state of heightened sensitivity. This is called “bronchial hyperreactivity” (BHR). The symptoms of asthma vary from person to person and in any Mar - Apr 2011

individual from time to time. It is important to remember that many of these symptoms can be subtle and similar to those seen in other conditions. All of the symptoms mentioned below can be present in other respiratory, and sometimes, in heart conditions You have a 6% chance of having asthma if neither parent has the condition, a 30% chance if one parent has it, and a 70% chance if both parents have it. Medications chemically similar to adrenaline have been developed. These medications, called beta-2 agonists, have the bronchodilating benefits of adrenaline without many of its unwanted side effects. Beta-2 agonists are inhaled bronchodilators which are called “agonists” because they promote the action of the beta-2 receptor of bronchial wall muscle. This receptor acts to relax the muscular wall of the airways (bronchi), resulting in bronchodilation. The bronchodilator action of beta-2 agonists starts within minutes after inhalation and lasts for about four hours

“There is no cure for asthma, but the disease can be controlled in most patients with good medical care. The condition should be taken seriously, since uncontrolled asthma may result in emergency hospitalization and possible death.”

ecent advance in cardiac surgery have focused on the need to make surgery less invasive and less painful, reduce hospital stay and result in quicker return to productive life. In addition, several new technologies have evolved to deal with conditions which were previously considered inoperable or not amenable to surgical treatment. Among the innovations ,the incisions on the chest have become much smaller. These may now consist of a cut only on the upper or lower part of the sternum (breast bone), or entering the chest cavity through an incision in between the ribs, thus avoiding cutting any bone at all. Through these techniques multi vessel bypass surgery, valve replacements and repair of certain kinds of holes in the heart are possible. Other techniques are Heart Port Surgery, in which only small incisions are made in between ribs, through which instrument can be passed and cardiac surgery done. A revolutionary method, though not yet widely available is robotic surgery. This technique consist of a surgeon manning a robot in a room next to the patient or even in a remote site. Small incisions are made on the patient’s 36

Recent advances in Cardiac Surgery

chest through which robotic arms holding different instruments are passed inside the chest. The movement of these operative instruments occur on the command of the surgeon manning the robot and can be very precise and free of distoration. An advantage of this technique is that the surgeon and the patient may be situated in different cities or countries and yet precise surgery can be done. Newer diagnostic techniques have developed to identify patients previously considered inoperable who can benefit from bypass surgery. These techniques, for example PET scanner can identify heart muscle which apparently looks dead and non functional but is actually capable of being revived once its blood supply is restored. Used judiciously, many patients previously considered as hopeless have shown dramatic improvement. These are certain situations where heart muscle has suffered a severe injury but could recover if given time. In these patients support devices called “Ventricular assist devices” (VAD) are now available which can tide the patient over that critical condition. Some of these are designed for long term use and have been miniaturised enough to be implanted in the patients body to take over function of the heart which has been permanently damaged. These are also called “Artificial hearts”. They are still undergoing refinements and though the devices available are far superior to what was available earlier, the ideal device is still to be developed.

Cardiac transplants have been around for several years though they have not yet been widely available in our country. There are obvious difficultes of procuring a healthy heart matching that of the recepient. Usually these hearts have to be donated by the families of victims dying of trauma. For this program to be successful there has to enough public awareness, willingness to overcome ingrained thought processes and a information grid which describes the location of different recepients along with their profile in different geographical areas of the countries. And finally there is an exciting field of Stem Cell and Gene therapy. A patient’s own Stem cells, which are capable of forming any body tissue, are isolated from the bone marrow and injected into the heart either during surgery or through catheters to help grow new muscle. The field is still evolving but there is a tremendous amount of interest in this technique. Attempts are also being made to grow heart valves outside the body so that the damaged valve can be replaced by valves made from a patient’s own tissue. Preliminary attempts are also being made to grow sheets of heart muscles to use to replace the damaged heart muscle. This is but a brief snapshot of exciting new developements in the field of cardiac surgery and we hope that the next couple of decades will see some revolutionary treatment modalities resulting in far greater benefits for our patients.

Sheltered workshop. Warning Signs & Symptoms of Cardiac Rehabilitation Dyspnea. Pulse rate–rate should come back to resting level in 2–3 minutes after ending the exercise. Pulse ratio–Pulse is taken before the exercise then on completion. Pulse is counted for 2 consecutive minutes. The pulse after exercise is divided by resting pulse to give pulse ratio e.g. pulse before exercise = 80. Chest pain–Patients must be educated to report chest pain and to rest immediately on any onset of retrosternal sensation or tightness in chest. Fatigue–If patient is doing the ex. every day, and at same patient feels tired before completion of exercise, he should stop exercise at that point and rest. Dizziness–Any onset of dizziness or faintness must be reported & Patient should rest. Cramps–If patient is developing cramps in any of the muscles during the exercise, exercise should be stopped for the day. Abnormal ECG recording–If any abnormality presents, exercise should be stopped on that day and progressed slowly. 38

Abnormal BP. Decreased urinary output. Signs of CV insufficiency. Phase–I of Cardiac Rehabilitation This begins when the patient is admitted to the hospital and ends on discharge, which is usually 7 to 10 days.

Hospital and Healthcare - NABH reaccreditation. In 2006 we were the first Hospital in India to receive NABH accreditation. In India, 327 hospitals have applied for NABH and only 39 hospitals have been given the NABH accreditation. It is to be noted here that ISQUA an international body grants approval to Accreditation Bodies in the area of healthcare as mark of equivalence of accreditation program of member countries. The approval of ISQua authenticates that NABH standards are in consonance with the global benchmarks set by ISQua. So far hospital standards of only 11 countries have received ISQua Accreditation. Hospitals in India of NABH Standard are equivalent to hospitals providing healthcare to patients in Australia, Canada, Japan and United Kingdom.On Pathology department we were the first hospital in India to also received NABL accreditation and CAP (College of American Pathology). So you can say that we ensure quality care not by self claimant but through proper evaluation process by external authorities.

Q

:What are the various technologies and services that are available at the hospital for heart treatment?

B.M.Birla Heart Research Centre is a one stop solution to all heart related problem. Our centre has recently been incorporated with latest generation of cardiac equipments like Philips Allura F D 10 which is the latest cardiac care system having special features such as stent boost, there is also 3D reconstruction mapping DSA refraction facility which is the first in eastern region which can be compared to international standard. We also have a rotablator system for CTO calcified lesion. In our echocardiography department we have a 3 dimensional echocardiography which can be done on adult, paediatric patients as well as on foetal. Our centre also has a department of Nuclear Medicine which has an unique Dual Head “INFINIA” Gamma Camera which would provide economic and accurate non-invasive diagnosis of artery disease. BM Birla Heart Research Centre has set up a lifestyle clinic and rehabilitation clinic, the first of its kind in Eastern India . EECP or Enhanced External Counter pulsation Therapy is also available here.

W

ound Management was never a focused area of Indian healthcare industry whereas everybody is aware of how important is to control post surgical infections, trauma & chronic ulcers. Even after successful super specialty surgeries, infection are not controlled the surgical success is not a success. Management of difficult wounds was an area of concern for healthcare experts, where I started working in the year 2006.

Siddharth Mandal CEO JCB ENTERPRISES PVT. LTD.

What is Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT)? The NPWT system Delivers sub-atmospheric Pressure (-10 to -200mmHg) to the wound site applied by a tubing which decompresses the specially designed foam dressing continuously or intermittently depending upon the wound type and the clinical objectives

The Negative Pressure Wound Therapy is truely a bio-mechanism, no drug involved, i.e., its specially networked structure improves micro angiogenesis by removing edema, improves dermal perfusion, gives macrostrain on to the wound bed & micro-strain at tissue level which enhances mitosis process & contracts the wound in overall size, promotes granulation tissue formation by facilitating cell migration and proliferation

How the system removes barrier to healing? Fist and the foremost thing is it is a closed sterile technique of dressing,

where all bacterial interference from external environment stops as soon as we start the therapy. Secondly it continuously removes edema & all bacteria colonized output from the wound, doesn’t allow time for fresh bacterial colonization, improves oxygenation, provides an optimal closed moist wound healing environment.

Is there any Clinical Evidences & Case Studies? Thousands of case studies available Indian or International.

What are the Indications & Contraindications? The therapy is indicated for almost all kind of wounds including Chronic, Acute or Burns. This is also indicated for post flap & graft, for secured fixation where wound bed is not regular. It help in good post surgical outcome.

What are the various dressings available? & Sizes? Yes we have come up

INTERVIEW

Yes we do have VACWOUNDTM Therapy Academy for doctors, Nurses & Technical staffs, This is quite extensively designed with hands on training update programmes. We also encourage healthcare experts to prepare their own case studies for patients & next generation healthcare professional. We have a clinical team of Nurses & paramedical staffs highly skilled & trained in VACWOUNDTM Therapy modalities to support 24x7.

Is it Economically feasible? Yes, it is economical as we have come up with Indian versions, also if we compare the overall cost involved with medication, hospitalization and most importantly time and quality of life. It saves life & limbs. For healthcare experts its very useful as it minimizes nursing time as the dressing change is required only after 3-4 days and also improves bed rotation with very high success rate.

Narrow arteries increase the risk of pain, coronary artery disease, heart attack, and death. Angina - or angina pectoris (Latin for squeezing of the chest) - is chest pain, discomfort, or tightness that occurs when an area of the heart muscle is receiving decreased blood oxygen supply. It is not a disease itself, but rather a symptom of coronary artery disease, the most common type of heart disease. The lack of oxygen rich blood to the heart is usually a result of narrower coronary arteries due to plaque buildup, a condition called atherosclerosis. Narrow arteries increase the risk of pain, coronary artery disease, heart attack, and death. A correct diagnosis for chest pain is important because it can predict your likelihood of having a heart attack. The process will start with a physical exam as well as a discussion of symptoms, risk factors, and family medical history. A physician who is suspicious of angina will order one or more of the following tests: Dr. Ajay Kumar • Electrocardiogram (EKG) - records electrical activity of the heart Director and can detect when the heart is starved for oxygen Muzaffarpur Heart Hospital & Stress test - blood pressure readings and an EKG while the patient • Research Centre is increasing physical activity • Chest X-ray - to see structures inside the chest • Coronary angiography - dye and special X-rays to show the inside of coronary arteries (dye is inserted using cardiac catheterization) • Blood tests - to check levels of fats, cholesterol, sugar, and proteins Lifestyle changes recommended to Angina treatments aim to reduce treat angina include: pain, prevent symptoms, and prevent or lower the risk of heart attack.
