My dear readers,

It has always been a pleasure to connect with all of you! Kauvery family hopes and wishes that all of you are hale and hearty especially during these tough times. We can all congratulate ourselves as we have maintained self-discipline and have helped in ensuring social distancing so that our health care system is not overloaded. Thank you for staying home and staying safe!

Though it has been a tough month, we have shown unity to resolve fighting this virus but it does not mean this unforeseen situation has come to an end. In fact, this is just the beginning. However, there is no need to panic. All of us need to show courage and positivity and face this situation with strength and determination. Of course, our Government and healthcare systems are trying their level best to safeguard everyone. But the hard truth is that this is going to go on for some more months. I humbly request all of you to continue practicing social distancing and ensuring cleanliness and hygiene even after the lockdown ends. [Read More…]


Do not ignore non-COVID-19 medical emergencies


Fear of coronavirus and the need for quarantine should not deter people from seeking treatment for non-COVID acute medical and surgical emergencies. Over the last two weeks, we have come across several instances of patients and relatives seeking medical attention very late for even emergencies because of fear. Since all the clinics and many smaller hospitals are closed, we are seeing quite a high number of patients with cardiac, neuro, stroke, gastro, diabetic and orthopedic emergencies presenting late with all complications leading to delayed intervention and recovery.


Delivering Hope in COVID Times


In these challenging times, the birth of new child is a hope for not just the whole family but for the whole community, the medical fraternity, the whole nation and the whole world! Hope and faith in modern medicine is the shield that will keep all of us safe and help us navigate the uncertainty.

There is nothing more joyful than welcoming a new-born into this world. The bundle of joy helps us to shift our thoughts away from the Covid19 pandemic. And the hope the new-born brings gives us the strength to fight through the greatest battle the mankind has faced. Our united efforts and our trust & confidence in the healthcare system and professionals are critical to emerge victorious against virus invisible enemy.


Bundle of Joy! Bundle of Hope!

Amongst all the chaos of the COVID 19 pandemic across the world and in our city, as Emergency physicians we find there is a tendency of people to avoid visiting the hospital for various reasons. The top 3 reasons being:


Life of Doctors - Patients, Medicine and Beyond...


Dr Suresh Venkita, our Group Medical Director, a senior cardiologist and an avid writer, has yet again shared this lovely story from his desk.

She was excited!

She could not believe her good fortune, that this was happening to her.

She, Manju David, a British citizen of Indian origin, serving in UK’s Special Police Forces, attached to Scotland Yard, being invited to MI 6, Head Quarters of British Intelligence! It was too good to be true.


The Art Of Being A Doctor


Every person has artistic abilities and talents. Doctors are often only seen as healers of the sick. While this is the main focus of our lives, we all have other facets to our personalities. This month we would like to present to you the artistic talents of our cardiologists in the hope that it will bring some brightness into lives that have been so affected by the lockdown.
