What is Echocardiography?

Echocardiography is another form of ultrasound imaging. It allows the structures of the heart to be visualised. The imaging is done by a probe placed on the chest well. The two dimensional echocardiography (Trans Thoracic Echo or TTE) provides sections of the structures and chambers of the heart. Serial images may be combined to give a real time view.

Doppler Echocardiography is based on Doppler principle sound waves reflected from moving objects sustain a change in frequency. By detecting the speed and direction of red blood cells, we can accurately calculate the properties of blood flow. The information obtained may be converted to colour patterns to indicate velocity and direction of blood flow. This gives accurate measurement of valve leaks. Two dimensional echo combined with Doppler is a simple non-invasive and reliable method of assessing structure and function of heart.

What is the difference between ICU and CCU in the hospital?

ICU stands for "Intensive Care Unit."  It is a generic term for a unit that provides critical care and monitoring to patients with non-specific disease entities. Some smaller hospitals may have only one critical care unit, that takes all types of sick adult patients, but most hospitals of any size now have specialty critical care units:
CCU: Coronary (or cardiac) Intensive Care Unit that takes patients who have cardiac-related problems (usually non-surgical).
SICU: Surgical Intensive Care Unit that takes seriously ill patients who have had surgery (including heart surgery).
MICU: Medical Intensive Care Unit that cares for seriously ill patients suffering from non-cardiac medical problems.
Larger teaching hospitals might have several other specialty ICUs such as Neonatal, Respiratory, Pediatric, Neuro, etc.

Does water reduce heart attack risk?

Water for Heart:

Drinking four glasses of water at the start of every day can stop heart attacks and cure varied diseases. Every time you have got a doctor visit, your doctor reminds you to drink the suggested sixty-four ounces of water day by day.
Drinking water at an explicit time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:
·         2 glasses of water after waking up. That helps activate your internal organs.
·         1 glass of water half-hour before a meal. That helps digestion.
·         1 glass of water before taking a bath. Doing that helps lower your blood pressure.
·         1 glass of water before going to bed. That avoids stroke or heart attack.

Water Reduce Heart Attack Risk:
According to specialists, beverage at an explicit time of the day will stop a heart failure at midnight. Most heart attacks happen between 6 a.m. and noon, therefore, if you expertise a heart failure throughout the night time, one thing might be wrong. Drinking one 8-ounce glass of water before going to bed can help avoid a heart attack.
·         Drinking water keeps you always hydrated
·         Helps you maintain or lose weight
·         Keeps your body healthy from diseases
·         Might you furthermore grasp that beverage might stop a heart attack
If you are lying down, the lower body seeks level with the kidneys and it is easier for the kidneys to remove the water rather than standing upright. Drinking water before bed helps level out your blood throughout your body to stop heart attacks throughout the night and also the early hours of the morning. Along with drinking water to prevent heart attacks, drinking water provides you with the countless benefits for your body to living a strong and healthy life with a healthy heart.

What is robotic cardiac surgery?

The area of cardiology is facing immense developments that are aimed to enhance the quality of lives for individuals suffering from heart-related problems. One of the major advancements in this particular field is robotically assisted heart surgeries.
In a robotic cardiac surgery, the robot acts as an extension of the doctor's hands. It is a great way to perform surgeries from a long distance.

Compared to other traditional methods of open heart surgery, this procedure is less invasive and carried out through tiny incisions. It would give the doctor a magnified view of the heart as the cameras are located on the sides of the robotic hands. There is more flexibility in the movement compared to the human wrist. It ensures accuracy and precision in the surgical procedure. There is notably lesser loss of blood in the process. It reduces the period of hospitalization as the recovery is faster and efficient.
It is popularly used for tackling heart ailments such as Mitral Valve Repair, Tricuspid Valve Repair, Atrial Septal Defect and Removal of Cardiac Tumors. Researchers and medical professionals are working together each day to imbibe technological assistance in cardiac surgeries. Having the tech at hand would help in reaching remote places. 
The area of cardiology opens its doors to embrace the new advances that inspire to complete the surgery is a shorter span and ensuring high success rates.

What is the TAVR procedure?

TAVR also called as TAVI stands for Trans-catheter Aortic Valve Replacement, or Trans-catheter Aortic Valve Implantation is the minimally invasive surgical procedure to repair the old, damaged valve by inserting a new valve within the diseased valve. The new valve pushes the leaflets of the diseased valves aside and takes over the job of regulating the blood flow.

The TAVR procedure is performed using one of two different approaches, allowing the cardiologist or surgeon to choose which one provides the best and safest way to access the valve:
·         Entering through the femoral artery (large artery in the groin), called the trans femoral approach, which does not require a surgical incision in the chest, or
·         Using a minimally invasive surgical approach with a small incision in the chest and entering through a large artery in the chest or through the tip of the left ventricle (the apex), which is known as the trans-apical approach.

What is cardiac electrophysiology?

· Cardiac electrophysiology is a branch of cardiology which deals with studying the electrical activity of the heart.
·  Electrophysiology is usually done for diagnosing arrythmias (irregular heart beat) and their point of origin in the heart which in turn helps to decide the treatment accordingly.
· It's an invasive procedure and it's usually done by a qualified electrophysiologist.
