Cardiology Helpline: Something We All Should Know

Cardiology Helpline: Something We All Should Know

October 27: The helpline (No—9743287599) service . Over 1,500 queries from different parts of the country, including remote areas in Assam are being answered within a month and is rendered free of cost.
Dr Padmanabh Kamath, an interventional cardiologist and the brainchild behind cardiology helpline said that on an average he gets 20 to 25 queries daily for free guidance across the country.
Even as he was responding to queries during the phone-in programme, Dr Kamath advised a slew of steps to a resident of Bidar seeking guidance on an ECG report via the helpline.
Kamath said the helpline is not a substitute to a doctor’s examination. The helpline is just to give guidance. The helpline offered guidance on cardiac cases and had helped a doctor in Neyveli in Tamil Nadu save a life recently.
Dr Kamath, who started CAD (Cardiology at doorsteps), a crusade against coronary artery disease initiative— a WhatsApp network of like-minded doctors across 15 districts including Bagalkot and Chitradurga, is engaged in screening poor patients for cardiac problems for free.
The group set up in February 2018 has installed 200 ECG machines in the PHCs of the interior villages with the help of donors. Eight ECG machines were installed at remote areas in Chitradurga on Friday, he said.
