Catching trouble much before it hurts the heart

Addressing the issue of heart diseases in Nepal, Dr Rajneesh Kapoor, Senior Director, Interventional Cardiology, Mendanta Heart Institute, Gurugram, India, was recently in the valley to conduct a workshop on complex cardiac procedures. Shedding light on new technology, Dr Kapoor said, “Data shows that if the patient comes to us and they are short of breath and having symptoms, it’s already too late. Hence in order to secure lives of heart patients, we are diligently working to provide health monitoring from homes, a step that saves a patient from giving repeat visits to the hospital and detect any symptom much in advance.” He urged people to live a heart-friendly lifestyle which incorporates high intake of fruits and vegetables, regular exercise, moderate drinking, quit smoking completely, eight hours of sleep, avoid binge drinking and manage stress.
