Professor (Dr.) Md. Shahabuddin Talukder, Senior Consultant of Clinical and Interventional Cardiology Department said “After disease is detected in our body, there are many opportunities for treatment, but there is a risk that the lifestyle will not be as normal as before. Especially in the case of heart disease. Therefore, everyone should take regular medical checkups and doctor’s advice to ensure good health of the heart. My appeal to all, you get used to a healthy lifestyle and try to avoid the risky aspects of heart health.”
Dr. Arif Mahmud, Director of Medical Services, Evercare Hospital Dhaka said” “We believe every heartbeat in the world is different and their medical needs are also different. It is from that belief that we continue to relentlessly strive to achieve exceptional care, wellness, and confidence for every cardiac patient. Evercare Hospital Dhaka is providing world-class comprehensive cardiac care in the country. So, my appeal to everyone is to be careful about heart care, consult a doctor for any need, and trust the country’s medical system without going abroad for treatment.”
Professor Dr. M. Atahar Ali, Senior Consultant, Heart Failure and Arrhythmia Unit said “Complications like heart failure can be prevented with proper knowledge and awareness. So, I think it is possible to ensure heart’s health by taking a doctor’s advice without neglecting any symptoms.”
Dr. Tahera Nazrin, Senior Consultant and Coordinator of Clinical and Interventional Pediatric Cardiology said, “We need to work together to raise awareness on paediatric heart diseases. We are providing all kinds of services in the Department of Paediatric Cardiology for the treatment and prevention of congenital heart disease.”
Dr. Sohail Ahmed, Senior Consultant and Coordinator of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery said, “Unknowingly, we neglect the care of the most important part of the body. So, we need to be more aware of heart care. At the same time, I think the country’s medical system needs to be enriched to maintain confidence and reduce the tendency to go abroad.”
