Pune: Cardiovascular diseases have now become the leading cause of mortality in India. Considering this need of the hour, Academy of Continuing Medical Education and Research (ACMER), in association with Rotary Club West End, has organised a symposium on ‘the life after cardiac event’ at Tilak Smarak Mandir, on Friday.
Dr Rituparna Shinde, Chief Cardiologist and Managing Director of Sanjeevan Institute of Cardiology and Research (SICR) along with Dr Preeti Shinde, Medical Director of SICR and Director Trustee of ACMER will conduct an informative session on the care to be taken after the cardiac event.
Also, a team of behavioural therapist, Kinesiologist and nutritionist will guide patients about stress management, healthy eating habits and appropriate exercises.
“Due to wrong lifestyle, eating habits, stress, lack of exercise and awareness and proper guidance, the heart diseases are at the stake,” said Shinde.
The programme will start by playing a short film on angioplasty created by ACMER, which will help patients and families to gain knowledge about the procedure. After this, doctors will guide the families of cardiac patients about how to take instant measures when the patient is suffering from cardiac arrest which will save the life of patient till he reaches hospital.
