Kochi: The Cardiology Society of India (CSI) Heart Failure Council is holding its third CSI Heart Failure Conference in Kochi from July 20 to 21 to take stock of increasing heart failures and to discuss the latest advancements in diagnosis and treatment.

It is for the first time the  state hosts such a conference. Dr A. Jabir, organising secretary of the conference, said heart failure registers a mortality rate of 30 per cent in a year with a survival rate of 50 per cent for three years.  

 

“In most cases, there is re-hospitalisation in six months after treatment. This has to be viewed as the greatest health care challenge of our times,” he said.

The theme of the conference is improving the outcomes of heart failure in India. “Considering the social and economic impact, the meeting will hold discussions on reducing the burden of chronic heart failure with the latest diagnosis and device-based treatment options.

The CSI heart failure snap survey report related to data on heart failure patients admitted to various hospitals across India between July 8 and 14 will be released during the conference.

Speaker P. Sreeramakrishnan will inaugurate the conference on Saturday. Dr Kewal C. Godswami, Dr M.K. Das, Dr Soumitrakumar, Dr Ambuj Roy, Dr P.P Mohanan, Dr K.P Markose and Dr Jabir A. will speak.

Health minister K.K Shylaja will attend the valedictory session.
