BGS Global Hospitals Performs the 1st Dual Organ Transplantation in Karnataka
Bangalore, Karnataka, India

BGS Global Hospitals, Super Specialty Tertiary Care,  on the eve of doctor’s day, organized a press conference on the 1st successful Combined Dual Organ (Liver and Kidney) Transplantation procedure in Karnataka.

The dual organ transplantation was performed by a team multi organ transplant surgeons, Dr. Mathew Jacob, Dr. Sonal Asthana, Dr. Rajiv Lochan & clinically supported by Dr. Kaiser Raja, Consultant, Hepatalogist, Dr. Anil Kumar, Consultant, Nephrologist, at BGS Global Hospitals.

The transplant recipient is a practising orthopaedic specialist, Dr.Sanjiv Kumar Sinha, a 59 year old who was suffering from long standing diabetes, which lead to his liver cirrhosis and kidney failure. He had been on renal dialysis for many months prior to consultation at our Transplant centre.  Whilst awaiting transplantation he unfortunately fell at home and fractured his hip and had to undergo total hip replacement surgery.

In April 2014 the family of a brain dead donor who had unfortunately met with a fatal accident came forward to donate the organs of their loved one. The organs were allocated by ZCCK (Zonal coordination committee for Karnataka) to Dr Sinha as they were found to be a suitable match. He subsequently underwent Combined Dual Organ (Liver and Kidney) Transplantation and is currently doing well. 

Dr. Sanjiv Kumar Sinha, Organ Transplant recipient said, “I had been on the waiting list for months battling my life threatening organ failure. First, I would like to thank the organ donor’s family and then the specialists, who have restored my hope and given me a new lease of life.”

Dr. Mathew Jacob, Consultant, HPB & Multi Organ Transplantation Surgeon, BGS Global Hospitals, said, “It’s a rare condition where both liver and kidney had failed simultaneously. Luckily, the family of a brain dead patient came forward to donate the organs. Through an extensive 4 hour surgery, organs were retrieved carefully for transplantation. In the adjacent operation theatre, the patient was prepared for transplantation, first his damaged liver was removed and the donated liver was transplanted. Subsequently, kidney was also transplanted through a separate incision under the same anesthesia. It was a 14 hour marathon surgery and now he has recovered well. ”

Dr.  Kaiser Raja, Consultant, Hepatologist, BGS Global Hospitals, said, “Having combined Liver & Kidney failure is a very serious condition in which survival is limited to a few months. Dual organ transplantation is a much more complex procedure which requires coordination amongst a large number of highly skilled super specialists"

Dr Rajiv Lochan, Consultant, HPB & Multi Organ Transplantation Surgeon, BGS Global Hospitals, " Such highly complex procedures are possible only with state of the art operating theatre, dedicated transplant ICU and a highly motivated and dedicated team of specialists. This is a big milestone for advanced health care delivery in Karnataka.”

Dr. Venkataramanaa N K, Vice Chairman & Chief Neurosurgeon, BGS Global Hospitals, said, “Doctors have a greater role to themselves and also to the society. Today’s disease burden is more than 1% of global GDP. It’s absolutely essential that doctors take care of their health in order to serve the society better. Till today, there is no specific healthcare model that serves the purpose of Doctor’s health. Global Group of hospitals provide tertiary & quaternary care completely avoiding the need for the patients to travel abroad for high end therapies. On the occasion of Doctors day, BGS Global Hospitals is launching a health scheme for the medical fraternity.”

BWI: Singapore Creates Business Opportunities in Infocomm Services Sector: Singapore Incorporation

Singapore Creates Business Opportunities in Infocomm Services Sector: Singapore Incorporation

The announcement of implementing the TVWS regulatory framework and other Smart Nation technologies last week boosts Singapore’s infocomm industry. It also opens up business opportunities for tech companies, says Singapore Incorporation.

Singapore’s Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) has announced the implementation of a new regulatory scheme for the utilisation of TV White Space (TVWS) last week. This plan is set to increase the availability of bandwidth for faster Internet connection speeds, and create business prospects in this domain. Singapore Incorporation foresees the new plan as one of Singapore’s ongoing efforts to build the capabilities of the infocomm industry.
Singapore is one of the world’s pioneer nations to introduce a regulatory structure for TVWS, which are untapped radio spectrums in the TV broadcast bands. There are 24 untapped radio spectrums in Singapore, and they can be used for alternative wireless broadcast communications to transmit data.
These regulations are expected to come into effect in November this year and liberalise about 180 megahertz (MHz) of spectrum. Commonly acknowledged as Super Wi-Fi, TVWS operates on a lower frequency that enables it to permeate more obstructions and challenging landscapes over longer distances. In addition, Super Wi-Fi drains lesser energy to broadcast signals, thus saving operational costs for service providers and utility bills for consumers.
“There is a growing demand for data communication in Singapore. The TVWS regulatory groundwork will provide confidence and guidance to businesses to develop innovative applications and services over TVWS. These can include machine-to-machine communications and smart metering”, explained Ms. Jane Koh, Marketing Manager at Singapore Incorporation.
Singapore has also decided to allow businesses to deploy TVWS technology without having to seek approval from IDA, opening up a myriad of commercial opportunities. This contributes to the development of the Smart Nation Platform (SNP), and places the city-state one step closer to its vision of being the world’s first Smart Nation. Dr. Yacoob Ibrahim, Minister of Communications and Information, proclaimed at the Infocomm Media Business Exchange 2014 last week that the SNP is expected to enhance Singapore’s existing connectivity with technologies.

At last week’s CommunicAsia 2014 Exhibition, the IDA’s Executive Deputy Chairman Mr. Steve Leonard announced the launch of the Partnership for Capability Transformation for the Infocomm Sector (iPACT) programme. The iPACT programme, which is worth S$15 million, aims to unite Singapore’s technopreneurs with large companies to facilitate the co-development and test-bedding of Smart Nation technologies. Motorola, StarHub, Microsoft, and Razer have expressed their participation in this programme to assist local startups to establish.
The Exhibition also featured SNP applications such as data analytics solutions by Singaporean tech startups. The IDA promotes local startups to explore and develop innovative products and solutions in Big Data and Analysis that will empower businesses. One example of a local data analytics startup is Bimar, whose tracking technology called LBASense was showcased at the CommunicAsia 2014 Exhibition. Local Measure, an Australian tech startup has also opened office in Singapore last week to provide data and analytics to local businesses in order for them to better serve their market.
“Singapore’s IDA and their investment subsidiary Infocomm Investments Private Limited (IIPL) play an active role in grooming local tech startups to build innovation. On top of that, they also make registering a business in Singapore attractive to foreign tech companies by funding tech accelerator programmes”, said Ms. Koh.

BWI: Doha Bank CEO Receives PhD in Global Governance from European University

Monday, June 30, 2014 3:10PM IST (9:40AM GMT)
Doha Bank CEO Receives PhD in Global Governance from European University
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dr. R. Seetharaman, Group CEO, Doha Bank, the leading private commercial bank in Qatar, has received a PhD in Global Governance from European University.
He received the doctorate at a convocation event held in Geneva –Switzerland recently. The function was attended by Mr. Adolf Ogi, former president of Switzerland and senior management staff and students from European University.

Speaking at the event, Dr. Seetharaman explained the concept of Global Governance. “The lessons learned from the initial wave of crisis should effectively be used to reduce the impact on the global economy. And this is exactly where a firm global governance framework will come to work. If a transparent and foolproof governance system is in place it can prevent another crisis. The world has got manipulated, and liquidity is mainly driving the markets. Currencies and interest rates have witnessed significant volatility.”

“My idea for Global Governance is strategic control of economies and corporations in the most effective way through Governance. It can be called corporate governance for institutions, and global governance for economies. Individuals are also affected by corporate governance and global governance due to the links with institutions and economies, respectively,” he said.

Dr. Seetharaman gave insight on various reforms undertaken by Global Governance. He said “After the crisis, global regulatory reforms have been actively reviewed under the leadership of G20 countries and in co-ordination with the financial stability Board (FSB), International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the Bank for International settlements (BIS).The Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in US implemented the regulatory reforms in response to the crisis. A consumer protection agency was formed under this act as it attained significant importance. The Volcker’s Rule was enacted under this regulation to restrict proprietary trading. The SEC also proposed tougher disclosure rules for Hedge fund and private equity firms. FSB, IMF and BIS are working on macro-prudential policy frameworks, including tools to mitigate the impact of excessive capital flows. Basel 3 implementation is underway. G20 has also encouraged the efforts made by the Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI) in implementing the Financial Inclusion Action Plan. The GPFI is expected to expand the G20 Basic Set of Financial Inclusion Indicators to cover innovative approaches, quality of products, financial literacy and consumer protection. The tax havens should also be regulated. The major financial reforms which are currently in progress are Build resilient financial institutions, End too-big-to-fail, Address shadow banking risks and Make derivatives markets safer. The current realignment of the global architecture will support the achievement of one of the eight UN Millennium development goals “to develop a global partnership for development,” which aims to further develop an open, rule-based, predictable, non-discriminatory trading and financial system. This would include a commitment to good governance, development, and poverty reduction, both nationally and internationally. Economies, institutions and individuals need to follow governance. “

In his conclusion, he said, “The Global Financial crisis is an opportunity for real economies to prosper, and financial economies to correct their values to become real and more ethical so that the world becomes a better place. Economies need to integrate the principles of sustainable development into their policies and programs. Moral and ethical governance is the key for sustainability and strengthening of Global and Corporate Governance will promote sustainability. Sustainability is the key for long-term growth. On account of the crisis emerging economies have realized their strengths, and advanced economies have come under regulatory re-alignment. This crisis is an opportunity to create a better world, based on sound transparent principles and ethics.
