New Lifeline Hospital launched in Zirakpur equipped with ECMO Facility
The hospital is to provide ethical, competent and state of art medical care to its clients in a transparent manner
Zirakpur: New Lifeline Superspeciality Hospital was inaugurated here today along with the launch of Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) facility. The facility was launched by Dr Muneesh Goel (MCH, CTVS).
In his inaugural speech, Dr Praveer Goel, Managing Director, New Lifeline Superspeciality Hospital said, “ECMO is the ultimate life saving therapy in the world today available at very high end selected centers worldwide. This is a form of extra corpeal life support, where an external artificial circulator carries venous blood from the patient to a gas exchange device (Oxygenator) where blood is enriched with Oxygen and its Carbon Dioxide gets removed. This blood then re-enters the patient’s blood circulation.”
While addressing the media, Dr Rachit Duggal, MD – Anaesthesia said, “ECMO is truly the new standard of care in any critical care setting. It provides chances of survival in cases of heart failure, lung failure where patient would have otherwise certainly died in absence of ECMO support. It is suitable for the patients who are hypoxaemic despite maximal conventional ventilatory support, have significant ventilator-induced lung injury, are in cardiogenic shock or who are in respiratory failure. The basic premise is that ECMO will allow the level of ventilatory support to be reduced, which allows time for recovery from the underlying pathology and recovery from ventilator-induced lung injury to occur.”
