The little box that saved a life

The little box that saved
a life

In the village of Gudageri, Taluk Kundagol, District Dharwad in Karnataka – far, far away from the sophistication of city medical care lived a poor farmer Hajaresab Rajesab Killedar. Like many of his kind he was a compulsive smoker and did not consider that it could kill him.

Luckily for him, the medical clinic closest to the village is run by Dr Mahesh Gadiginmath, who is a strong believer in the capabilities of his @Cardiotrack ECG monitor (http://cardiotrack.io/).

Dr Mahesh sees about 30-40 patients per day in his tiny clinic. Hajaresab’s village has a population of about 10,000. People from nearby villages also come to his clinic. The doctor told me that he sends patients requiring critical care to hospitals nearby. And so it was with Hajaresab. When he came to see the doctor he was sweating and complained of chest pain. The doctor immediately hooked him up to @Cardiotrack. The AI (artificial intelligence) component in the device immediately and accurately diagnosed the problem as inferior wall myocardial infarction.

Hajaresab was rushed to the nearest hospital in Hubbali town and a life was saved. @Cardiotrack co-founders @Avin Agarwal and @Ashim Roy have always passionately believed in the tremendous possibilities of the device. Dr Mahesh says that of the many patients he sees every month at least 12 or more have serious heart problems.

You do the math.

Preventive cardiac care is the only effective way to ensure that cardiovascular diseases do not continue to orphan families. Hajaresab’s family has felt the full force of this. As for Dr Mahesh, he refers to @Cardiotrack’s AI capabilities as ‘my friend’.

Bengaluru-based start-up, Cardiotrack, has expanded its presence to Gujarat. The company has partnered with Star Hospitals, a multi-speciality hospital chain based in Ahmedabad to deliver real-time diagnostic solutions in Gujarat. This expansion, makes Cardiotrack a Pan-India provider of AI-based cardiac care solutions.

The partnership with Star Hospitals is an attempt to address the growing concern with regard to heart disease, and deliver cardiac solutions that are real-time and preventive in nature.

Speaking on the partnership, Dr Bhavesh Thakkar, Interventional Cardiologist, Star Hospital said, “Cardiotrack will put Star Hospital on the path to proactive preventive cardiac care. With the high number of cardiovascular cases in the country, India strongly needs preventive methods to save lives and families. With Cardiotrack, we are working towards creating a more heart healthy population in Gujarat.”

Cardiotrack will be deployed across all Star Hospitals’ centres. Cardiotrack’s hand-held IoT device, that is driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI), will capture clinical grade ECG data using cutting-edge technology and ensure data portability through smart android-based devices.

Ashim Roy, Co-Founder and CEO, Cardiotrack said, “Heart diseases continue to be one of the main causes of death, globally and across age groups. 50 per cent of these deaths can be averted if the delay in seeking the right medical advice is reduced. The best way to achieve this is preventive care and early diagnosis. We at Cardiotrack, pride ourselves for providing accurate and timely diagnosis for all cardiac related issues. The testimony of our endeavour stems from the fact that Cardiotrack, today, is present across India with leading hospitals adopting our technology to address the challenges in cardiac care.

Bangalore-based start-up, Cardiotrack, which provides best-in-class predictive diagnosis for cardiovascular diseases has expanded its presence to Gujarat. It has partnered with Star Hospitals, a multi-speciality hospital chain based in Ahmedabad to deliver real-time diagnostic solutions in Gujarat.

According to a Census India report, over 24% of deaths among men and 19% of deaths among women were due to cardiovascular diseases in Gujarat. More people die of heart diseases than respiratory diseases, tuberculosis, and cancer put together. In fact, Gujarat has a rich and developed urban culture because of the mercantile nature of its society. The people are prone to heart disease due to their affinity towards sweets and fried foods.
