The majority of children who suffer from heart diseases have a congenital heart defect, a problem with the structure of the heart. Congenital heart defects include holes in the walls of the heart, narrow valves, valve leaks, and sometimes a combination of multiple defects. The early cardiac screening will help diagnose the disease before symptoms arise.

School screening programs were conducted by KG Hospital, where children with heart diseases were detected and brought to the hospital from government or private hospitals for free surgical correction under the government’s insurance scheme,” said Dr. G.Bakthavathsalam, Chairman of KG Hospital.

The Minister also inaugurated life-saving medical types of equipment such as patient monitors, syringe pumps, ventilators, and non – invasive ventilators at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital.
