We, at P. D. Hinduja Hospital have always believed in 'Prevention is better than cure'.

Good Health is the foundation of a productive and rewarding life. Today's lifestyle has brought with it stress, unwholesome eating habits and inadequate rest. Coupled with elevated levels of pollution, these factors are bound to gradually take their toll on us. Yet, most of us tend to ignore these facts until we are compelled to confront a medical condition.

We, at P. D. Hinduja Hospital care about your well-being. In keeping with your concern, a team of highly qualified and experienced medical personnel has developed the Health Check Programme. The packages in this programme are designed to give you a complete check-up and within their limitations, detect any latent health problems.

Know Your Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest - (SCA Package)

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is different from a Heart Attack. A heart attack blocks blood to the heart while a SCA STOPS the heart. It stops the heart thereby leading to death within minutes. This is caused by electrical disturbances of the heart where in the heart fails to function at a very fast heart rate. SCA kills approximately 4-5 million Indians every year. P. D. Hinduja Hospital is the only hospital which provided specialized tests like ECG with late potentials, T- wave Alternans and Heart Rate Variability for assessing the risks of SCA.
