CIH's medical team revisiting the patient On March 30, a patient, named Jun, was admitted to the CIH emergency unit with the symptoms of dizziness, excessive sweating, fatigue, and low blood pressure. After conducting the examination and laboratory tests, the results showed that he had a complete heart block, right bundle-branch block, hyper-acute T waves in the inferior leads, and reciprocal ST-segment depression in the anterolateral leads.

An immediate procedure was performed by doctor Tung, head of Cardiology and Vascular Intervention. Coronary angiography revealed a dominant right coronary artery (RCA) with 80 per cent ostial stenosis. A drug-eluting stent was successfully deployed to the ostial RCA lesion with an outstanding angiographic result. The expert team realised that … [Read more...] about CIH saves Australian tourist from severe heart attack

A study of nearly half a million people in China suggests a daily egg may reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes. Illustrative image: Photo: Thanh Giang/VNP Experts stress any egg consumption needs to be part of healthy lifestyle to be beneficial. But fears that eating too many eggs can be bad for you appear to have been laid to rest.
