Dr.VS Narain, Professor & Head-Department Of Cardiology King George Medical University, Lucknow, spoke to Hiral Bhatt at STEMI India, Lucknow. This is what he said:


'The ideal STEMI management is to reperfuse the affected artery as soon as possible within the first hour which is possible in the west but not in India'


'If you thrombolyse within the first 3 hours, then the results are good, you are able to open up the artery and restore blood flow'


  • " STEMI Deaths In India Are More Than The West Due To Lack Of Funds & System "

'We have several peripheral hospitals, where thrombolysis is done immediately, then within the first 24 hours this patient is shifted to the Hub Hospital where an angioplasty facility is available'


'Regarding the funding, in the West, a methodology has been developed in the southern part of India, you have identified the total costs that are going to come for the entire population in that area and some insurance company takes up the challenge'


  • " STEMI India: Give Thrombolysis & Then PCI Within 24 Hours Of An Attack "

'We are working with STEMI India, where we would train the nurses, the technicians, the doctors and the specialist to create a Heart Attack Management Team.'
