Inaugurated an Advanced Life Support Ambulance
Now-a-days cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most common cause of death worldwide. As per World Health Organization (2012), an estimated 17.5 million people died from cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), representing 31% of all global deaths. Data published by WHO in 2016 indicates that 37% of deaths are caused by CVDs. 16 million deaths happened in 2016 below 70 years of age were due to non-communicable diseases.
There are an estimated 40 million heart patients in India. Out of which 19 million reside in urban areas and 21 million in rural areas. 17.5 million People die each year in India from cardiovascular diseases. 80% of all cardiovascular deaths are due to heart attacks and strokes, and 74% of urban Indians are at risk of cardiovascular diseases. This suggests heart diseases are fast becoming an epidemic in rural India and a structured solution is needed for combating the issue.
Poor accessibility of good emergency units, critical care unit, and poor doctor population ratio in rural India are some of the biggest challenges to saving lives after a severe medical emergency.
Considering the above, we have re-structured and developed our emergency and critical care unit since late the year 2020. Since then, we saved hundreds of lives in the emergency and ICU and successfully sent them home. But after stabilizing the patients’ condition we are sending many patients to higher centers (130 Kms+) for Cath lab procedures, emergency tertiary level surgeries that are not performed here, or for next-level treatment. And these patients mostly suffered from heart diseases, CVAa, and head injuries that required urgent intervention.
And to reduce treatment complications and increase the chances of patient survival, an Advance Life Support ambulance is very much helpful for medical monitoring, oxygen therapy, and advanced drug therapy during transportation.
As of now, an ALS ambulance is available only at Jhalawar Medical College which is 45kms away from Bhawani Mandi.
And patients got medical emergencies in villages and nearby towns have no option to get comprehensive emergency and critical medical intervention within the golden hour unless they reach the Noon Hospital emergency unit or Jhalawar Medical College or other units which are located at least 130kms from Bhawani Mandi town.
Considering the above, Noon Hospital & Research Centre added a well-equipped ALS (Advance Life Support) ambulance and became more capable of saving more lives. And we have extended this facility with the help, support, and generosity of ICICI Group.
On behalf of Noon Hospital & Research Centre, our Managing Trustee Mrs. Zeenat Noon Harnal expressed heartfelt thanks to Mr. Anuj Agarwal (Chief Operating Officer- ICICI Foundation for Inclusive Growth), Mr. Joachim Colaco (Senior Manager-ICICI Bank), Mr. Sailesh Jha (Chief Manager-ICICI Bank), Mr. Sanjay Chowdhary (Zonal Head – North West – ICICI Foundation for Inclusive Growth), Mr. Ram Chowdhary (ICICI Foundation for Inclusive Growth) and every member of ICICI Group for this compassionate support.
