Watch How a Saudi Virtual Hospital Operates Remotely on Stroke Patients
The Cardiology team at Seha Virtual Hospital SVH was able to undergo a remote operation to save the life of a patient in her seventies who was suffering from severe heart pain.
The 70-year-old patient arrived at the emergency department of King Fahd Specialist Hospital in Tabuk (Northwest of Saudi Arabia) in early April, suffering from severe pain in her chest.
After communicating with the specialists from the Cardiology team at Seha Virtual Hospital SVH located 1000 km away in the capital city of Riyadh, a decision was reached to operate on the atrial septal defect.
The operation, supervised by SVH's consultants, was successful. The patient stayed for two days in the intensive care unit before being transferred to the regular inpatient department for two more days. She has left the hospital in good health and is still receiving the necessary follow-up in the outpatient clinic.
