For treatment of heart attack, there is not a single place in India where a patient cannotget thrombolyzed and reach a PCI-capable center within 2 hours, says Dr. Viveka Kumar, Director of Interventional Cardiology and Electrophysiology at Max Heart Institute, in conversation with Dr. HK Chopra, President CSI (Cardiology Society of India) Then why is it that delay in treatment is a major cause of loss of lives due to heart attack? The answer is lack of early recognition of symptoms or inability to reach a good cardiac facility in time, according to Satyavan Sharma, Chief of Cardiology in Mumbai Hospital.   “Any discomfort in the chest or abdomen, diabetes, blood pressure or a history in the family are all signs of a cardiac problem everyone must be aware of.”“Mobile apps that help identify PCI-capable hospitals in the vicinity and assist the patient in sending real time ECG data to the doctor would also go a long way in solving this problem.” Dr. Viveka Kumar also talks about the benefits of primary PCI over elective PCI in reducing mortality from 33% to 64%, provided the patient reaches hospital within 6 hours.
