INTRODUCTION

Cardiovascular diseases are amongst the major public health issue and contribute significantly to morbidity and mortality in this part of the world. Each year hundreds of kashmiris suffer from the most severe type of heart attack known as STEMI in which blood flow is completely blocked to a portion of the heart, and unless this blockage is eliminated quickly , patient's health and life stand at a serious risk.

Currently around 2/3rd of the STEMI patients fail to receive the best of the treatment to restore blood flow even in most developed countries LIKE USA, hence the regional and local customised approaches are the need of the hour.

SAVE HEART KASHMIR seeks to save lives by closing the gaps separating the STEMI patients from timely access to rapid diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

SAVE HEART KASHMIR is focused on prudent system of care for patients who suffer from acute cardiac events like arrhythmias and myocardial infarction.
