KG Hospital Chairman Dr G.Bakthavathsalam conducted a health awareness programme exclusively for the women staff of Ford India Pvt. Ltd at Saravanampatti, Coimbatore, on 19-09-2017.
He stressed the point that women must stay healthy, for their own sake and that of their families. The incidence of breast cancer and the rate of mortality on account of it were on the rise. Therefore, it had become necessary to conduct breast cancer awareness programme.
Dr G.Sudha, Ultrasonologist of KG Hospital, dwelt at length on how to self examine the breasts to find any possible lumps.
Dr Bakthavathsalam also demonstrated the Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation procedure, the Basic Life Support System that saves the patients who suffer sudden heart attack, and, the Super Brain Yoga technique (தோப்புக்கரணம் in Tamil) that activates the brain.
It may be noted that KG Hospital is equipped with the state-of-the-art Digital Thermogram, a painless, non invasive, free from radiation and 100 per cent safe procedure that detects any abnormal cellular activities in the breasts to pre-empt any possible development of lumps.
