Chief Minister Punjab Mohsin Naqvi presided over a meeting at his office to assess the progress made on primary angiography. During the meeting, it was decided to implement a new initiative called “drip and shift” in four districts, namely Sheikhupura, Kasur, Chiniot, and Jhang. This initiative aims to provide timely medical assistance to heart patients in case of a heart attack. Under this plan, a patient will receive an injection and then be transported by an ambulance equipped with trained staff and medical equipment to the nearest THQ or DHQ hospital. If the primary angiography facility is not available in the tehsil or district hospital, the patient will be shifted to the nearest big hospital. The secretary specialized health & medical education reported that more than 2,500 patients have already benefited from primary angiography in nine major hospitals, resulting in the saving of hundreds of cardiac patients’ lives. The attendees included Provincial Minister for Specialized Healthcare & Medical Education Dr Javed Akram, Dr Farqad Alamgir, chairman PITB, DG Rescue 1122, and others.
