THE NEWLY set up multi specialty `National Hospital’ for heart and critical care at E-3 Arera Colony opposite Old Campion Ground promises several specialty services besides claiming a few firsts to medical care in the entire country.

Hospital’s managing director Dr Pradyuman Kumar Pandey told media persons today that Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan would formally inaugurate the hospital on February 12. He added that patients would get round the clock medical help for heart, chest, neo-natal, paediatric and accident, trauma and orthopaedic services.

Dr Pandey stated that to treat critical patients the hospital, built at a cost of around Rs 6.5 crore, is equipped with most modern 10-bedded critical care unit.

The hospital also boasts of providing noninvasive continuous cardiac output monitoring by ICG monitor for the first time in India. Another feature of the hospital is its dual display, central monitoring system, which is first of its kind in Madhya Pradesh and second in the country.

Hospital’s Obstetric and Gynaecology specialist Dr Nisha Pandey informed that international standard equipment and medical care would be ensured in the hi-tech neo natal and antenatal units. She added that pre-birth heart monitoring of foetus, painless delivery, ventilators for new born babies, proper management of high-risk deliveries would be available at the hospital.

The hospital also has a heart-monitoring unit that can monitor heartbeats during twin pregnancy too, she informed. The unit is also capable of monitoring the entire body systems of the expectant mother and is very successful in avoiding unnecessary delivery by caesarean section, Dr Pandey stated.
