Dr. Sanjay Tandon, Consultant Physician, Secretary Association Of Physicians of India, Lucknow spoke to Hiral Bhatt at STEMI India 2018, Lucknow.


This is what he said:


' Most of the patients in India come to chamber in case of heart problem & 60% of the physicians are doing a chamber practice. Chamber practice is where you have a doctor, chamber, sitting and consulting, with least treatment facilities.'


  • " In Periphery, Physicians Do Chamber Practice & There Are Lack Of Cath Labs "

' In India, most of the time people land-up late because of transport issues, traffic congestions and other financial constraints.'


'A physician doing a chamber practice must do an ECG first. If the patient is suffering from STEMI and if you don’t have access to thrombolysis, give him aspirin, Clopidogrel, and 80mg of Statin.'


  • " Patient With A Chest Pain Must Be Diagnosed With ECG For STEMI "

'Then transport the patient to the nearest Cath Lab within 2 hours or at least give him thrombolysis. '


'After thrombolysis, transfer him to a cath lab within 24 hours if needed. '


  • " STEMI Management: Give Anti-Platelet Drugs & Transfer Him To The Cath Lab "
