Mechanical Circulatory Support Devices

LVAD

A left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is employed for patients with an end-stage heart failure. The device is surgically implanted into the patient. It powered by a battery and uses a mechanical pump to help improve pumping of the blood from the left ventricle to the rest of the body.

RVAD

A right ventricular assist device (RVAD) is a battery powered, mechanical device that helps pump blood from the right ventricle of the heart to the lungs. The right ventricle is the pulmonary chamber and right side heart failure impairs the flow of blood from the heart to the lungs.

BiVAD

A bi-ventricular assist device (BiVAD) is an implantable device deployed for patients with heart failure in both chambers of the heart. This device is a battery powered one and combines the functions of both the LVAD and RVAD to help restore normal blood flow in the body & to lungs.

Air Ambulance


Air Ambulance services have become an increasingly common phenomenon in the modern medical world. An air ambulance is a chartered flight with emergency health, and life-assisting facilities. In addition to providing quick movement of organs and patients, air ambulances offer the necessary infrastructure on transit care and emergency life-sustenance. The common components of an air ambulance include - life saving medications, ventilators, ECGs and monitoring units, CPR equipment, and stretchers. A fully trained crew is also on hand to deal with medical emergencies and swift movement of organs & personnel.


Emergency Evacuation

Of critically ill patients from inaccessible places to hospitals with advanced infrastructure

Critical Care

For patients in transit requiring immediate & emergency medical assistance.

Organ Transport

From a donor to recipients in a far off location; without delay & loss of organ function

Transit Surgery

For patients in transit requiring immediate & emergency surgical intervention/life-support.

ECMO Program


Treatment for heart failure involves pharmacological therapies, including diuretics and inotropic agents. Invasive therapies include electrophysiological interventions such as pacemakers or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators, revascularisation procedures such as percutaneous coronary intervention, valve replacement or repair, and temporary use of intra-aortic balloon pumps or ventricular assist devices or ECMO as temporary mechanical circulatory supporting system.

ECMO (Extra corporeal membrane oxygenation) is a mechanical circulatory machine that pumps and oxygenates a patient's blood, thus allowing the heart and lungs to rest. It saves tissue from sustaining further hypoxic injury, which makes patients far better candidates for transplant. ECMO provides hemodynamic support in refractory cardiogenic shock and may be used after heart transplant for primary graft dysfunction or rejection. ECMO support is viable option for adult heart transplant recipients with severe rejection and refractory cardiogenic shock to maximize the benefit of this aggressive approach in heart transplant recipient requires early intervention, with a heightened awareness of this option to facilitate expedited use

Extracorporeal life support or ECMO provides life support during recuperation and aids conventional life-assisting therapies. A patient placed on the ECMO machine will be drained off the blood from the veins, and the machine takes over the lung function of purifying it. The blood is then returned to the body and a pump is used to push it to various parts of the body. This technically bypasses the hearts and lungs; this allows for these vital but diseased organs to be rested & cured.


Long-term
Life Support

Contrary to a cardiopulmonary bypass, the ECMO machine can support a patient for a considerably longer duration. From 3-10 days.

Intrinsic
Lung-Heart Recovery

In addition to cardiopulmonary bypass, an ECMO machine allows for a more fundamental recovery/rehabilitation of the heart & lungs.

Implemented
Via Cervical Cannulation

ECMO is implemented via a cervical cannulation - performed under local anesthesia. A standard cardiopulmonary bypass is done by thoracic cannulation.
