Mysuru: The State run Jayadeva institute of Cardiology (JIC) is all set to get another cath lab to treat patients.

The JIC has been providing quality service to thousands of poor  cardiac patients from Mysuru, Kodagu, Mandya, Chamarajanagara and Hassan Districts at an affordable cost. At  present the hospital equipped with three cath labs and another cath lab will be established after the machineries imported from abroad.

JIC Medical Superintendent Dr. K. S. Sadananda said that the hospital is getting more number of patients by the day. In order to cater to the patients it is essential to have another cath lab. The Jayadeva institute  Director Dr. C. N. Manjunath has sanctioned another cath lab. An order will be placed to European country to supply machineries of cath lab soon, he added. He said  cath lab is modern technology to treat cardiac patients.

He said at present 600 to 700 outpatients are coming daily. On an average there are 250 in-patients. Every day 40 to 50 new patients are admitted to the inpatient department. Currently running 50 to 60 are patients using 3 available cathlabs. If there is another one, the waiting period of patients would come down and expert doctors stress would also reduced, he added.

“The current three cath labs are not sufficiant for handling everything. We are doing extra work and managing. If another one is established patients will no longer have to wait. Since we have all the staff including medical staff, cath lab is helpful in performing treatments like angiogram, angioplasty, face maker, balloon operation, and device closure (closure of a hole in the heart) etc.
