Indian Cardiac Surgeon Dr. H S Delivers Key Note Address
Dr Bedi is one of the few heart surgeons who has understood the importance of using traditional Indian yogic systems to improve the outcomes in heart disease patients . He has documented the effects of yoga on the heart and lungs and presented his findings at various super-specialist meetings and conferences all over the world . Initially sceptical surgeons have been amazed by the results and have started using the beneficial effects in their patients too. Dr Bedi explained that after major heart surgeries the lungs do not function well and the patients are not able to cough out secretions resulting in low oxygen levels and pneumonia . With the addition of simple yogic techniques by a full time yoga teacher – Mr Nirmal Singh – under medical supervision – patients are able to breathe well very soon leading to reduced infection rates and quicker recovery .
Dr Abraham G Thomas – Director of Christian Medical College & Hospital – said that the CMC & H is one of the very few Institutes in the world which has encouraged the addition of yoga therapy to improve the well being of their patients . With a strong research oriented and patient centred compassionate approach to disease treatment and prevention the CMC was committed to bring the best medical care to the people of this region.
