With the aim to further transform cardiovascular healthcare in the country, Asian Hospital and Medical Center created the Asian Cardiovascular Institute (ACVI). The Asian Cardiovascular Institute brings together the best among cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, radiologists, electrophysiologists, and allied health care professionals to provide high quality, comprehensive, and value-based care.
It is the first and only advanced cardiovascular care facility in the southern part of the Metropolis which offers comprehensive cardiovascular diagnostic and treatment procedures using holistic approach to heart care. It combines world-class medical expertise, advanced technologies, and up-to-date heart care education to dramatically improve the prevention and treatment of heart disease.
CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE AND THE SERVICES
PREVENTIVE CARDIOLOGY AND REHABILITATION
Cardiac Rehabilitation Services are offered to help patients get back to their daily lives - physically and psychologically - after a heart attack, by performing open-heart surgery, or interventional cardiology. Cardiac Rehabilitation is an exercise program performed in a structured and supervised setting. Patients are also given special physical activity regimen designed by exercise physiologists and cardiac nurses to meet their unique needs and goals. The regimen is adjusted as the patient grows in strength and endurance.
GENERAL ADULT CARDIOLOGY
CARDIAC PHYSIOLOGY, ARRHYTHMIA, AND SYNCOPE
The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory (Cath Lab) is a vital part of cardiac care. It is a venue for a number of procedures that enable a Cardiologist to: (a) locate blood vessel narrowings or blockages that could cause chest pain, (b) measure pressure and oxygen levels in different parts of the heart, (c) check the pumping function of the heart, (d) take sample tissues from the heart, (e) diagnose heart defects present from birth, and (f) examine the heart valves for problems.
Asian Hospital and Medical Center's highly-skilled cardiovascular surgeons work with cardiovascular disease specialists and other areas to deliver the highest quality of heart care for adult and young cardiac patients. The Cardiac Center's overall mortality rate is 3%, including all cardiac and thoracic aortic cases. This is comparable with the mortality rate of the US Society of Thoracic Surgeons Database, the global standard for heart surgery outcomes. The overall mortality rate for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG), including reoperation, is 1%.
Also known as the Non-invasive Cardiac Laboratory, the Asian Cardiovascular Institute provides several interrelated diagnostic tests and procedures that do not need penetration of the body.
