Mumbai: Dr.Zainulabedin Hamdulay, Cardiologist and Heart Specialist shares his views on Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on patients

Mumbai: With the Covid-19 pandemic spreading ragingly and impacting on people, Hello Mumbai News Reporter Amreen Shaikh gets an opportunity for an exclusive phone interview of Dr. Zainulabedin Hamdulay, Cardiologist and Heart Specialist .

Speaking to Amreen Shaikh Dr. Hamdulay claims that alongside Covid, there are other diseases, particularly heart attacks to which people succumb. We need to be ex exceptionally careful of our health in the best possible ways.

It is the altruistic ambitions of ‘Dr. Hamdulay’ that made him learn the condition of a patient. He claims that around 10-15% people are coming with chest pain. Being heart specialist, they were concerned about the patients with heart problems, also facing chest pain. They admit the patient and isolate them, giving them the primary treatment, with the followup of COVID test. If the patient is COVID negative, they are taken immediately for the further surgeries and if the patient is COVID positive, they isolate them to the COVID ward and treat them, until he gets negative to COVID, so that they can carry further cardiac treatments and surgeries on the patient. They take all the required precautions so that even if the patient is COVID negative, will not be infected. With the extension, they currently have more than 7 beds in ICU, trying to arrange more.

There are atleast 3-4 patients coming everyday with acute chest pain which requires immediate attention. Most of the hospitals are not admitting patients with chest pain, they ask them to do the COVID test first, out of fear. Because of this, many young patients are getting heart attacks
.
Talking about the challenges faced by him amid his exemplary service, Dr. Hamdulay shares that due to limited beds, the patients with COVID positive but with no cardiac problems, had to get shift to other hospital, as they had limited beds and many patients with cardiac problems. So to find bed for them in another hospital was the biggest challenge and to segregate the patients of Cardiac problem with COVID positive. Working Day and Night have been slightly exhausting for the doctors and nurses, but the only important part for them is to save lives.

Dr. Hamdulay, sharing his thoughts says, “Its not easy, specially in City like Mumbai, where people with all levels of education, from different places, living in different conditions reside together. There is no uniformity. Government is trying to help us in all best possible ways. There are and there will be shortcomings, and we need to understand and accept the terms, with no demand.

Life is most important. We need to save lives, and for that we have to be United. Every small contribution from each one of us can make a huge difference. We should help government and government will help us. Its always two ways better.

Expressing his views on the huge impact of this pandemic, migrant crisis, Dr. Hamdulay says that Mumbai should’ve done more for migrants. We should have stood by them. They have a fair contribution in building up this city and making this city run.

They had left this city with trauma and the feeling that they were abandoned. They should have given better houses, and their life would’ve been different by now.

Further, Dr. Hamdulay added , “ We need to accept the reality. The main problem is the lack of education. People are not ready to come out and get labeled as COVID patient. Due to the fear they don’t want their families to go in isolation.
Dr. Hamdulay appeals that along with COVID, there are other diseases too affecting people.

We need to be highly cautious about our health. Masina Hospital is proudly taking care of the heart patients irrespective of COVID or any other status.
