The Cardiac Center- Hail conducted 225 cardiac catheterization procedures during the first quarter of 1439H. The center is equipped with the state-of-the-art medical equipment and devices and enhanced with medical professionals to serve cardiac patients in Hail.
In the same vein, the Hail Health Affairs has completed the development project of the center's catheterization room to provide integrated and high quality medical services that focus on patient's care and provide modern medical services through high level standards in order to put an end to referring patients to hospitals outside the region. The cutting-edge catheterization room helps to reduce radiation exposure, both for patient and medical staff by 50%. It features a stent tracker, a blood vessel monitoring system during catheter implantation, and a 3-D cardiac model using pre-acquired CT scans of the coronary arteries, a right ventricular analysis system and an X-ray remote control.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) has launched recently the (e-health) application to facilitate access to visual medical consultations on smartphones. In so doing, MOH seeks to employ cutting-edge technologies to enhance effective communication with service-beneficiaries, and to allow them get the needed specialized medical consultations.
According to MOH, the first stage of using the new App. will cover Northern Borders, Asir, Tabuk, Jazan, Najran and Al-Jouf Health Affairs. Then, the App. will be used across the Kingdom, by Allah's Leave.
The App. is designed to enable audio-video communication from 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. during working days, as well as weekends from 1 p.m. to 12 a.m. Accordingly, users can login into the application, communicate directly with a specialist, and have their cases diagnosed through the application. Hence, the specialist answers users' inquiries, provide the needed medical consultation and the necessary medical procedure.
