Technology and Infrastructure

We are now equipped with Medistim VeriQC, Intraoperative ultrasound imaging machine system which first of its kind in India. This imaging system is used in cardiac surgery to assess GRAFT flow/ perfusion in coronary bypass surgery. It enables the surgeon to locate intramyocardial coronaries which are not seen on surface of the heart. Cardiac surgeons can now assess the percentage of coronary block/ stenosis by epicardial doppler probe to decide about the graft ability of coronary vessel. Epiaortic ultrasound helps to avoid brain stroke from atherosclerotic plaques in ascending aorta and measurement of graft flow intraoperatively.

To enhance the quality of care for all patients with hypertension, Lilavati Hospital has taken an important step to standardize hypertension management. Our Hypertension Clinic has standardized blood pressure treatment and measurement protocols as well as a hypertension formulary for blood pressure medications and suppliesand has updated related performance indicators. By standardizing blood pressure measurement, Hypertension Clinic will prevent misdiagnosis,under-andover-treatment of hypertension and improve the accuracy of blood pressure measurements across the system. In addition, Hypertension Clinic will improve individual hypertension disease management and decrease morbidity and mortality due to hypertension.
