Stating this at the Eighth Asian Interventional Cardiology Conference here, Hooda said one CCU has already been set up in Mewat. Another three will be set up in Kurukshetra, Ambala and Yamunanagar districts.

Under the National Non-Communicable Disease Program, citizens are being screened for hypertension, heart diseases, diabetes and cancer.

"To meet the ever-increasing load of heart diseases, we need to set up more CCUs. For this, we need more cardiologists and if they are not available, we will have to develop appropriate skills of our doctors to do not only successful screening but also provide treatment," Hooda said.

He added that he recently met Dr. Naresh Trehan, chairman and managing director of Medanta, for preparing a model for spreading awareness in villages for prevention of heart diseases.
