Check-up Finds 73 Government Schoolchildren In Bengaluru Have Cardiac Issues

Concerns over children’s cardiac health have been raised when at least 73 youngsters at government schools in Bengaluru received diagnoses of heart conditions during a check-up by a nonprofit, reports Deccan Herald.

Recently, Careworks Foundation (CWF), the nonprofit division of business services provider Quess Corp, conducted health checks on 11,276 children between the ages of 3 and 16 at 75 government schools and anganwadis in JP Nagar, Marathahalli, HAL Road, and Bannerghatta Road.

For additional testing and care, the 73 kids with cardiac-related diagnoses have been referred to the Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences & Research.

“We are taking 15 kids in the first batch to Jayadeva,” Smitha Srinivas, Head CSR at CWF, said.

Since 2014, schools have conducted the CWF health examination.

“Earlier, we saw dental, vision and anaemia problems in children. This is the first time we are seeing so many children having cardiac issues,” a doctor associated with CWF said. “A majority of these kids were complaining of chest pain, difficulty in walking and breathlessness. Though we recorded it as ‘heart murmuring’ based on our examination, further examination is recommended for clarity and treatment,” the doctor added.

The majority of the children, according to Smitha, are from families of construction workers and are from slums.

“In the preliminary screenings, heart murmur has been identified, suggesting that there could be a defect in the heart,” Jayadeva Institute director Dr C N Manjunath told DH.

“We will be doing echo cardiogram for all these children and if it is confirmed, then we will start further treatment accordingly,” he added.

Parents were urged by Manjunath not to disregard indicators like persistent fever, coughing, bluish staining of the skin, and so forth.

  1. Quess Corp History- look at pdf on website.

    It’s a money laundering firm promoted by RSS and bjp leaders.

    Acquiring unknown companies, changing names, crores of rupees coming via suspicious methods.

    It is a supplier of toilet cleaning staff and security guards.

    They have no business going anywhere near kids.

    To hell with their csr nonsensical lines.

    Most likely they did this slum school health checks to identify the kids who can be transported across international borders.

    All the kids are chosen to be sacrificed in rituals in the castles of darkness across Europe. In particular in the priory of Sion.

    That’s where adrenochrome is being manufactured.

    This AC is the chemical manufactured by James Thompson in 1998.

    At about $20,000 a pop it gives old fogey politicians unbelievable energy.

    Ask your international spook kidambi. I’m sure he knows people who use it.
