The unit is one of the first in the country to utilize the Cardio Dynamics machine. In addition we have a fully operational echocardiography, 24-hour halter analysis, late potential analysis and exercise stress test service available.
The unit has the largest number of cardiac rehabilitation patients in the country, in existence for 15 years, run by a team of doctors and physiotherapist. Patients have organized themselves into a club, popularly known as the Happy Hearts Club.
The team extends its services beyond the acute management of services to include, rehabilitation, life style modification and the reintroduction into the community.
