MediSage, an online community of doctors empowering healthcare practitioners with first-hand medical information, held an online interactive discussion on ‘Cardiac conduction system: Structure, function, insights, reflections’.
The event was the first part of the 12 MediSage Signature Series in collaboration with the Indian Society of Electrocardiology (ISE), a 50 year old Medical organisation formed to upskill doctors across the country. There were 1,500 doctors across India who joined the online session organized by MediSage on cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and understanding electrocardiogram (ECG).
The programme was conducted by ISE experts Dr Ashish A Nabar, cardiologist, consultant cardiologist, Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai, and Jupiter Hospital, Thane; and Dr Ketan K Mehta, Consultant Physician, Cardiopulmonologist Diabetologist), Mumbai.
The MediSage event was to educate the last-mile doctors in how to build a stronger understanding of ECG reports since CVDs have now become the leading cause of fatality in India. Doctors say that a quarter of all mortality is attributable to CVDs. The Global Burden of Disease study estimates that age-standardized CVD death rate of 272 per 100,000 population in India is higher than the global average of 235 per 100,000 population.
The ECG is an important diagnostic test for patients with cardiac complaints for early diagnosis. An ECG can not only detect the simple heart rate and help monitor the essential rhythm, but also help in interpreting complex arrhythmias, myocardial infarction, and other ECG abnormalities. The key objective of the event was to increase diagnostic accuracy and improve adequate patient referral using ECG screening among general practitioners. It strengthens the need for better collaboration between general practitioners and cardiologists to improve cardiovascular care. The focus was on early detection of cardiac pathology which can lead to prompt treatment. It highlighted that use of ECG screening in the general practitioner’s office may potentially reduce morbidity and mortality.
