Modern International Hospital saves the life of a tourist with timely intervention for a severe heart attack


Dubai’s International Modern Hospital (IMH) has once again demonstrated its unwavering commitment to providing exceptional healthcare services, having recently saved the life of a 68-year-old Russian tourist who suffered a serious heart attack while visiting the city.

The patient, a Russian-speaking lady, arrived at the IMH emergency department at midnight complaining of intense chest pain. Upon evaluation, her electrocardiogram (ECG) revealed alarming signs of an acute anterior wall ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, commonly known as a severe heart attack.

Understanding the urgency of the situation, IMH’s highly qualified medical team, led by Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Upendra J. Shah, immediately went into action. With precision and efficiency, the patient was quickly transported to Cathlab for emergency coronary angiography.

The coronary angiography results were concerning and showed complete blockage (100% occlusion) of the left anterior descending artery, a critical blood vessel supplying the heart. Without delay, Dr. Shah performed an emergency coronary angioplasty, using a drug-eluting stent to restore blood flow to the affected artery.

After the successful intervention, the patient was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for further monitoring and specialized care. Surprisingly, just three days after her admission, the patient was discharged from the hospital, with no chest pain and able to walk comfortably.

One of the most notable aspects of this case was the effective communication despite the language barrier. Despite speaking Russian, the patient and her family received clear explanations about the diagnosis, treatment options and prognosis. Her satisfaction with the timely treatment and compassionate care received at IMH underscores the hospital’s commitment to providing patient-centered healthcare.

International Modern Hospital continues to distinguish itself as a leading healthcare institution in the region, recognized for its state-of-the-art facilities, world-class medical expertise and patient-centric approach. This latest success story further cements IMH’s reputation as a model of excellence in healthcare, dedicated to saving lives and improving the well-being of patients from all walks of life.
