18 March 2018

By Allah’s Grace, a medical team of Maternity and Children Hospital-Sakaka has successfully saved a lady in her 40s, who was suffering from uterine hemorrhage. After due medical examination, she was diagnosed with enlarged uterus due to fibroids. Then, the team has conducted both fibroidectomy and hysterectomy. She is currently at the hospital in a stable condition.

It is noted that Maternity and Children Hospital-Sakaka (with a 150-bed capacity) is the reference hospital across the region. In 2017, the hospital served 33,569 outpatients and 29,705 inpatients. It also performed 124 surgeries, including 33 emergencies, over the past month.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has increased cardiac diagnosis of the newborn from 20% to 90% during 2017. In its 2017 achievements report, MOH stated that this process has helped early detect cases with congenital heart disease (CHD), treat them in initial phases, improve the health of cardiac children, and reduce the burden and economic cost for both patients and the state. To do so, MOH has boosted the efficiency of the medical teams in Newborn Units through continuous training, policies and guidelines, as well as new indicators that help monitor performance. Likewise, MOH has increased the hearing diagnosis of the newborn from 17% to 89%. By Allah’s Grace, this has helped early detect cases of hearing defects, treat them in their initial stages; thus, enabling the newborn to enjoy a normal life free from hearing impairments.
