Cardiology

Introduction

AIIMS Patna took another leap in the healthcare with the inception of the Department of Cardiology on 23rd July 2018.Department is located at 1st floor B section of OPD building. As our first step, we focused on providing OPD services. Gradually we got equipped with non-invasive facilities of ECHO, TEE, Stress Testing, 24-Hour Holter Monitoring and ABPM.

With the mission to provide advanced and affordable healthcare, we started Catheterization lab services on 20th Sep 2019. The state of the art lab is equipped with modern equipments. The department also established coronary care unit (CCU) which started functioning from mid-February 2020. This unquestionably signifies the department’s growth. The CCU (C6B) is equipped with state of art monitors with central station, ICU beds, defibrillator, transcutaneous pacing and other equipments necessary for critical cardiac care. Department added OCT FFR and Rotaablation system in the armamentarium of imaging based coronary angioplasties. We strive to provide best possible tertiary care & committed to the maintain evidence based quality health care with patient safety.
