1500 doctors across India joined the online interactive sessions
MediSage recently held an online interactive discussion on ‘Cardiac conduction system: Structure, function, insights, reflections...’ The event was the first part of the 12 MediSage Signature Series in collaboration with the Indian Society of Electrocardiology (ISE), a 50- year-old Medical organisation formed to upskill doctors across the Country.
1500 doctors across India joined the online session organised by MediSage on cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and understanding electrocardiogram (ECG).
The programme was conducted by ISE experts Dr Ashish A Nabar, Consultant Cardiologist, Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai, and Jupiter Hospital, Thane; and Dr Ketan K Mehta, Consultant Physician, Cardiopulmonologist Diabetologist), Mumbai.
The MediSage event was to educate the last-mile doctors on how to build a stronger understanding of ECG reports since CVDs have now become the leading cause of death in India. Doctors say that a quarter of all mortality is attributable to CVDs. The Global Burden of Disease study estimates that age-standardised CVD death rate of 272 per 100,000 population in India is higher than the global average of 235 per 100,000 population.
