Department of Cardiology
Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed with highly qualified medical personnel, the Cardiology Department of PIMS is the Cardiac Centre par excellence.

Each of the six beds in the Intensive Coronary Care Unit (ICCU) is staffed with trained nurses on a 1:1 basis and has facilities for monitoring ECG, Hemodynamics, Oxygen saturation and respiration with a team of Physician / cardiologist in constant attendance. Bedside echocardiography, X-rays, Temporary pacing, mechanical ventilators and Intra-aortic Balloon Counter Pulsation (IABP) support are also available here. The ICCU handles a host of cardiac emergencies such as acute myocardial infarction (MI), heart failure, cardiogenic shock and life threatening arrhythmias.

The department is equipped with the most modern Colour Doppler Echo Cardiography System. By this, both anatomical and physiological functions of the heart can be repeatedly assessed without any pain or discomfort.

Availability of the modern exercise treadmill system enables evaluation of chest pain and also helps in identification of severity of Coronary Artery Disease to a great extent.

Invasive cardiac evaluation and treatment is carried out with Axiomartis, the modern Siemens digitalized cardiac Catheterization laboratory.

Diagnostic coronary and peripheral angiograms, coronary angioplasty (PTCA)/stenting, primary angioplasty for myocardial infarction, pacemaker implantations, balloon mitral valvulopasty are performed.

Peripheral vascular diagnostic angiograms and interventions with stenting, peripheral arterial embolisation like bronchial artery embolisation, uterine artery embolisation, Intracardiac defibrillator implantations and Cardiac resynchronization therapy, device closure of ASD’s and PDA, Electrophysiology + Radiofrequency ablation are also performed routinely.

"TREATMENT WITH CARE AND COMPASSION IS THE MOTTO OF THIS CENTER"
