“Cardiac diseases are responsible for almost two-third of the deaths all over the world,” says Dr. Sushil Kumbhat, an Interventional Cardiologist from Mumbai Indian College of Interventional Cardiology has taken the initiative of educating and training various junior cardiologists in coronary and valvular procedures. Simultaneously, they are also taught how to diagnose and treat hypertension, diabetes and cardiac diseases. The passing on of education and expertise of angioplasty to young medical students has been taken up to prevent cardiac mortality and provide for a large number of people in need of such treatment. Three important points of advice Dr. Sushil gives the audience are: 1. A regular checkup after crossing the age barrier of 40, including the stress test and treadmill test to know of any hidden coronary artery diseases 2. A family history of hypertension or diabetes mandates regular check ups for both. 3. Symptoms like breathlessness or chest pain while walking must be immediately reported to a doctor, preferably a cardiologist.
