Kolkata hospitals set up satellite facilities to treat mildly symptomatic Covid patients

Amid a surge in Covid cases and demand for hospital beds, hospitals in Kolkata are setting up satellite facilities to treat mildly symptomatic patients who do not want to risk infecting their housemates.

With Covid-19 cases in West Bengal rapidly rising over the past two weeks, the demand for hospital beds has increased sharply. While many hospitals have increased their bed capacity, some hospitals are setting up satellite facilities in hotels and guest houses within a two kilometre radius.

Mildly symptomatic Covid patients who do not want to risk infecting their housemates will be treated at these facilities. The patients will be monitored by doctors.
AMRI Hospitals
The AMRI Hospitals in Kolkata have taken up 24 beds at Sojourn Hotel which is close to their Salt Lake hospital. They are taking up another hotel in Sector 5 too.
The Dhakuria branch has taken over a 32-bed centre at Hotel Southern Plaza and will be taking over a guest house near Lake Market area. The Mukundapur branch is also taking up a guest house with 32 beds.
These satellite facilities will be equipped with Wi-Fi and other deluxe living amenities. They are being set up in accordance with the West Bengal Clinical Establishment Regulatory Commission’s guidelines.
CK Birla Hospitals
Others, including CK Birla Hospitals, are contemplating setting up satellite facilities.
“We are looking to open up satellite facilities in the vicinity. These will be quarantine centres where Covid patients who are recuperating but do not need to be in a ward or an ICU can be taken care of. Our clinical team will be in regular touch with them,” said Dr S Gill, Chief Operating Officer at CK Birla Hospitals.
Dr Gill continued, “In the last 20 days, we have been adding 10-20 beds wherever we can. We expect the numbers to go up. Adding beds is not the solution, we have to man the beds with nurses and doctors.”
He also mentioned that there is an issue with oxygen supply. “We have an oxygen-generating plant at our Jaipur facility which is now only enough for 50 per cent of the requirement. In normal times, it handles all our requirements. We will have to figure out how to handle things beyond our control, be it oxygen or medication,” Dr Gill stated.
Increase beds, says CM Banerjee
Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who is also the health minister, held a virtual meeting with private hospitals in the city to discuss measures being taken to treat the rising number of cases.
Rupak Barua, Chief Executive Officer at AMRI Hospitals, said, “We had a fruitful meeting with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on April 20. She spoke to us via video conferencing. She appreciated the role private hospitals are playing in treatment and management of Covid-19 patients. She also acknowledged the difficulties we are facing, given the ground realities.”

Barua, who is also the president of the Association of Hospitals of Eastern India, said that Banerjee had urged hospitals to increase beds and add satellite centres so more patients can be admitted.

On Wednesday, West Bengal reported 10,784 fresh Covid-19 cases and 58 deaths in 24 hours. There are more than 60,000 active cases in the state.

Significant Impact of COVID-19 on Absorbable Heart Stent in Healthcare Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Absorbable Heart Stent in Healthcare Industry Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), also known as SARS-CoV-2 or 2019-nCoV, is a human infectious disease caused by the coronavirus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome. COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the world health organization due to the rapid rise in human infection rates. The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced the whole planet with its major impacts on the economy and businesses across the globe. Though the emergence of the virus can be traced back to Asia, many European countries along with the U.S. have been struck massively by the pandemic. The virus has spread across all regions ranging from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa up to South America. After the declaration of the pandemic, various countries announced the complete lockdown such as India, China, and other Asian countries to decrease its spread. According to the latest situation report by World Health Organization (WHO) stated 175 million cases of corona virus have been reported globally and 4 million patients are dead due to the coronavirus. On a slightly positive note, a total of 158 million people have recovered and a total of 2 million vaccine doses have been administered. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a worldwide pande0mic, and cardiovascular complications and arrhythmias in these patients are common. Cardiac monitoring is recommended for at-risk patients. The novel coronavirus pandemic has significantly impacted the timely delivery of surgical or stent treatment for patients with severe coronary vascular disease. This has created a large backlog of work and upstaging of disease with consequent increase in risk and cost of treatment and potential for worse long-term outcomes. As countries emerge from lockdown but with COVID-19 pandemic in society, precautions remain that restrict ‘normal’ practice. Stents are small, expandable tubes that treat narrowed arteries. Coronary artery stents are used to open the blockage of arteries or to expand the narrowing arteries, which helps to treat a heart attack, and reduce pain like chest pain. Absorbable Heart Stents are said to be “the fourth revolution” after balloon angioplasty, baremetal stents, and drug-eluting stents. As these provide mechanical support for a determined period and then disappear from the vessel, allowing its natural healing, and avoiding the risks associated with having a permanent metallic cage, such as stent thrombosis. The absorption of the stent could potentially lead to a recovery of the endothelial function of the vessel, making it responsive again to vasoactive agents. The potential benefits, including the decreased risk of stent thrombosis at long-term follow-up, one of the most feared complications of metallic stents, have led to absorbable stents, a field of growing interest in interventional cardiology. The increasing prevalence of geriatric population and adoption of sedentary lifestyle along with the rise of obesity in people are driving the absorbable heart stent market as coronary artery diseases require appropriate surgeries for 'their treatment’. But there is a negative impact of COVID-19 on the absorbable heart stent market due to massive disruption of supply chains, and financial fragility forced manufacturers to shut down their industries as absorbable stents require high financial inputs for manufacturing. For Instance, · According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 18.2 million US adults age 20 and older have CAD (about 6.7%), which has required appropriate treatment · According to the European Cardiovascular Disease Statistics 2017, each year, cardiovascular disease (CVD) causes 3.9 million deaths in Europe and over 1.8 million deaths in the European Union (EU) Moreover, COVID-19 has made it more challenging for the manufacturing companies to bridge the losses and attempt to fulfil the demands during these times. The COVID-19 has impacted the business of manufacturers, and other service providers that are involved in absorbable heart stent devices. IMPACT ON PRICE COVID-19 has forced the countries to impose lockdown and restrictions worldwide. This has affected many industries and economies. The total lockdown in various countries forbade the transportation of raw materials, and the business of service providers. So, manufacturing absorbable heart stent devices has become difficult, which directly impacted the prices largely. For instance, · In 2020, National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) has been approved to hike the prices of absorbable heart stent on seeing the current scenario and making it easy for the manufacturers. IMPACT IN DEMAND The outbreak of the coronavirus has shown impacts on various markets around the world. It is the cause of lockdown and isolation, which ultimately has an impact on global economic activity. This is why the global epidemic has shrunk by 1.0% in the current year. Although the COVID-19 pandemic continues to transform the growth of various industries, the immediate impact of the outbreak is varied. While a few industries will register a drop in demand, numerous others will continue to remain unscathed and show promising growth opportunities. As heart patients are under suspection for higher exposure to COVID-19, demand for absorbable stents surges as companies are making efforts to provide help to healthcare systems to overcome the scarcity of stents while treating CAD. Absorbable stents are in high demand due to the high prevalence of interventional cardiology and peripheral vascular procedures amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which prevents the patient from staying in the hospital for long. The clinical observations suggest that a person with heart disease has been more prone to COVID-19, which lead to clinical complications. Therefore, the government of various countries laid guidelines for special care, and treatment for heart patients. This has surged the demand for absorbable stents among people for early treatment of CAD to prevent complications of COVID-19. For Instance, · According to an early bulletin released by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) on March 6, 2020, people who have underlying cardiovascular disease, have a higher mortality rate when it comes to COVID-19 (10.5 percent) than people who have an underlying chronic respiratory disease (6.3 percent) · According to the American Journal of the Medical Sciences, the COVID-19 mortality rate for people with pre-existing cardiovascular disease was between 10.5 and nearly 14 percent, and the number surged to between 35 percent and almost 87 percent for people who had underlying coronary artery disease IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted the supply chains for absorbable heart stents globally. The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 and its subsequent impact on restrictions on trade and development of goods has resulted in a shutdown of vast portions of the global economy, resulting in disrupted supply chains due to transportation cessation, which affected the manufacturing unit largely. Companies in the arterial stents market are helping healthcare systems to stock inventory and medical devices in order to avoid supply shocks amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, · According to FDA, there have been reported shortages of medical devices and equipment amid COVID-19 due to disruption of supply and service providers · According to Springer, 2020, many companies experienced dramatic exposure to supply chain disruptions during the pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns (Strange 2020) due to their reliance on offshore supplies STRATEGIC INITIATIVES FOR MANUFACTURERS A large pool of the population affected by this COVID-19 virus, and its spread is expanding across the world in the last few months. To deal with the COVID-19 outbreak challenges, many market players are creating new strategies. The key players engaged in providing products such as Medtronic, Boston Scientific Corporation, Abbott, Cook Group, Angiomed GmbH & Co. Medizintechnik KG face challenges to keep the growth during coronavirus and to maintain the demand and supply chain with proper protection of the employees. For instance, · Medtronic focused on providing special protection and care to its employees. Its manufacturing and distribution facilities are routinely cleaned and sanitized, employees are utilizing personal protective equipment (PPE) and social distancing, including staggered breaks to reduce crowds in common areas, and additional screening and access protocols have been implemented. · Medtronic increased contributions to its Employee Emergency Assistance Fund, which is providing need-based financial grants to employees who are experiencing economic impact due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including childcare reimbursement. · Boston Scientific Corporation is providing extra precautions, including increased cleaning measures, social distancing protocols, and the use of face coverings for employees who work onsite, along with personal protective equipment (PPE) for employees in the workplace ensuring business continuity. CONCLUSION The COVID-19 has impacted the market positively. To summarize, the prices for this market has increased as manufacturing requires raw materials which have been disrupted amid COVID-19. The demand for absorbable heart stent market has been increasing due to the prevalence of geriatric population and adoption of sedentary lifestyle which leads to various coronary vascular diseases, but the supply chain and service providers are unable to satisfy the needs, and thus, have impacted largely. However, manufacturers, service providers, and the government are making new guidelines to work safely in the workplace in the new normal and combat the gap between demand and supply. Overall, various measures have been taken by the market players to improve their business and the quality of their services.

However, the supply chain has disrupted during the outbreak scenario because the demand is more for these products. As unlocking of the lockdown being started in various regions of the world, it is expected that the supply chain became normalized for the market.
Liposuction Vs. Non-Surgical Fat Removal
Many cosmetic surgery patients are concerned about areas of unwanted, diet- and exercise-resistant fat. Localized fat can be difficult to get rid of permanently, whether it appears as a persistent stomach "pooch" after pregnancy, areas of fat around the thighs that won't budge, or bulges along the flanks and back. For many years, liposuction has been one of the most popular and frequently performed cosmetic procedures, and for good reason. This surgical procedure reduces fat and refines body contours in a safe, effective, and permanent manner. Nonsurgical or minimally invasive alternatives to liposuction have grown in popularity in recent years. These body contouring treatments usually do not require an incision or anaesthesia, and they have a shorter recovery time. Continue reading to learn about the differences between the two fat-loss methods and to determine which one is best for you. What exactly is liposuction? Liposuction is a surgical fat removal procedure that rose to prominence in the 1980s. A board-certified cosmetic surgeon carefully and precisely removes excess fat during the procedure using a small, hollow tube called a cannula. As the surgeon moves the cannula through the fat deposit, suction is applied, removing excess fat cells and sculpting a slimmer body contour. Liposuction is especially useful for removing fat from the legs, abdomen, back, arms, face, and neck. It produces more dramatic results than other noninvasive fat reduction procedures; however, it requires a recovery period of about four weeks and is typically more expensive than nonsurgical alternatives. CoolSculpting®, BodyTite®, and Other Nonsurgical Procedures: How Do They Work? Nonsurgical fat reduction treatments employ a variety of modalities to target and eliminate unwanted fat cells via a topical, rather than surgical, procedure. Nonsurgical body contouring treatments that are popular include: CoolSculpting. Allergan's CoolSculpting is a good choice for people who are close to their ideal weight but want to reduce small, localised trouble spots on the hips, abdomen, or thighs. A specialised cryolipolysis device is used in this treatment to cool unwanted fat cells to the point of death without affecting surrounding tissues. Fat cells that have died are flushed from the body in the days and weeks following the procedure. After three months, the final result is visible. TruSculpt. Cutera's truSculpt treatment is similar in that it uses controlled radiofrequency technology to eliminate fat cells on the hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. The average treatment lasts about an hour, and most patients require one to two treatments to see noticeable results. BodyTite. BodyTite by inMode is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and reduce unwanted fat deposits. An internal probe delivers thermal energy to help melt fat and strengthen collagen bands beneath the skin's surface, while an external applicator delivers radiofrequency energy to the skin for additional tightening. BodyTite is considered minimally invasive because a small incision is required to insert the internal applicator probe by your surgeon; however, it is a less invasive procedure than liposuction. BodyTite is an excellent choice for people who have small to moderate amounts of excess fat and loose skin and want to avoid the extensive downtime associated with surgery. Most patients report seeing results within a few days, with final results appearing after 2 to 3 weeks. Patients can expect to see continued skin tightening in the months following their procedure because BodyTite stimulates collagen production in the skin. SmartLipo. SmartLipo by Cynosure, also known as “laser liposuction,” is a non-surgical procedure that uses triple wavelength laser technology to remove unwanted fat around the muscles and tighten loose, sagging skin. SmartLipo's laser gets to work dissolving body and/or facial fat, which your body then processes and excretes naturally. To remove any excess liquid that may accumulate during the procedure, a very small tube is inserted into the treatment area. SmartLipo is ideal for areas of the face that traditional liposuction cannot adequately address, such as the jowls, chin, jaw, and neck, due to the small tube used. SmartLipo is also excellent for contouring areas of the body that retain stubborn fat, such as the abs, back, flanks, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. Because SmartLipo is less invasive than liposuction, there is less tissue damage at the treatment sites. The results of SmartLipo treatment are visible immediately, and there is little downtime required. SculpSure. SculpSure by Cynosure is a non-invasive laser body contouring treatment that removes unwanted fat beneath the chin (submental fat), love handles, the back, the stomach, and the inner and outer thighs. SculpSure, like CoolSculpting and truSculpt, is ideal for patients who are nearing their ideal weight but want to reduce stubborn, exercise- and diet-resistant fat pockets. Unlike CoolSculpting, which freezes fat cells, SculpSure uses heat to destroy fat cells (a process known as apoptosis). SculpSure has been shown in studies to be effective at permanently removing up to 24 percent of fat cells in a treated area. A series of 25-minute treatments is beneficial to the majority of patients. Nonsurgical Fat Reduction vs. Liposuction Both liposuction and nonsurgical body contouring have advantages and disadvantages. Invasiveness Liposuction is a more aggressive method of fat removal that causes trauma in the treatment area. For up to 10 days after the procedure, patients will experience soreness, bruising, and swelling. CoolSculpting, truSculpt, and SculpSure treatments are typically gentle and cause little discomfort during and after treatment. Results Although the final result of liposuction is not visible until 6 months after the swelling has subsided and the treated area has healed. CoolSculpting and other noninvasive fat reduction treatments take longer to produce results, which become more visible in the weeks and months following the procedure. While neither liposuction nor nonsurgical body contouring treatments can replace weight loss, liposuction does provide more dramatic and longer-lasting results, as well as some skin shrinkage. Downtime The healing process after liposuction necessitates that patients limit their daily activities for several days following the procedure and exercise with caution. CoolSculpting, truSculpt, and SculpSure do not require a lengthy recovery period, and patients can resume normal activities right away, though mild soreness and swelling are to be expected. Though the results of nonsurgical fat reduction will be less noticeable, you will be able to return to work and resume your life much sooner. Is Liposuction or Nonsurgical Body Contouring the Best Option for Me? For larger deposits of excess fat, liposuction may be an excellent option. It has the potential to significantly improve your figure in multiple areas at the same time. Some disadvantages include a higher cost and a higher risk of health complications when compared to noninvasive techniques. If you are already at your ideal weight, have good skin elasticity, and want to target smaller, stubborn trouble spots, nonsurgical fat reduction may be a better option. The results, however, will not be as dramatic, and multiple treatments may be required. Making an Appointment for Liposuction or Nonsurgical Fat Removal The best way to decide between liposuction, CoolSculpting, truSculpt, BodyTite, and other non-invasive fat reduction procedures is to consult with a board certified cosmetic surgeon. During a personalised cosmetic surgery consultation, they can walk you through your options and help you decide which is the best fit for you.
