CVSKL and Alpro Group Unite to Launch “Synergistic Hearts” Campaign for Enhanced Cardiovascular Care

CVSKL x Alpro - Malaysia Kini

Cardiac Vascular Sentral Kuala Lumpur (CVSKL) and Alpro Group proudly announce the initiation of the “Synergistic Hearts” campaign. This collaborative effort seeks to elevate cardiovascular health within the community, with a specific emphasis on addressing irregular heart rhythms, commonly known as arrhythmia.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a type of irregular heart rhythm condition that affects the upper chambers (atria) of the heart. This arrhythmia prevents blood from being pumped efficiently to the rest of your body. AF itself is not life-threatening but if left undiagnosed and untreated, it can result in complications such as stroke and heart failure. It often manifests without obvious symptoms, allowing it to go undetected for long periods of time. Recognising the significance of early detection and intervention, the “Synergistic Hearts” campaign emphasises the importance of proactive measures to mitigate the impact of irregular heart rhythms.

A momentous occasion marking a strategic alliance between leading healthcare providers that are committed to a healthier, heart-conscious community, bringing cardiovascular services closer to the community.

As part of this pioneering collaboration, CVSKL is providing 20 units of KardiaMobile Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) Monitor device, a cutting-edge technology that allows for a quick 30-second test to detect reliable, medical-grade ECG results. These devices allow customers to receive prompt results and advice from well-trained pharmacists, guiding them on the next steps in managing their cardiovascular health. The expertise of CVSKL’s reputable cardiologists and electrophysiologists, Datuk Dr. Razali Omar and Dr. Zulkeflee Muhammad has played a crucial role in shaping the campaign’s approach to addressing irregular heart rhythms, ensuring that the community receives the most advanced and comprehensive cardiovascular care.

Regarded widely as a tertiary referral centre, patients from all over Malaysia are referred to CVSKL to seek further cardiac and vascular treatment, especially if their cases are deemed complex by their primary doctor. CVSKL is strategically located in the nation’s transportation hub, KL Sentral where most of the passenger rail networks serve KL Sentral station. Recognizing this. CVSKL also has an initiative with KTMB and KLIA Ekspres to provide free return train tickets from the stations that arrive in KL Sentral.

Tan Eng Ghee, Chief Executive Officer of CVSKL stated, “We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with Alpro Group, recognising the invaluable role pharmacists play in changing the narrative on how Malaysians should care for their hearts.  Together, we are dedicated to advancing cardiovascular care, ensuring that individuals receive the support they need for a healthier and heart-conscious community.

In appreciation of Alpro’s commitment to this partnership, CVSKL is extending a 10% discount to Alpro Pharmacy members and employees. This discount applies to CVSKL room rates (for self-paying patients), DishRoom restaurant services, PulsePoint Pharmacy products, and Health Screening Packages (HealthScan & Gastro), all available in CVSKL.

“We thank CVSKL for working with us as it will enhance our pharmacists’ ability to better serve the communities,” stated Ph Lim En-Ni, Chief Pharmacist. “Pharmacists play a unique role in the healthcare ecosystem, offering accessible and trusted healthcare advice alongside longer operating hours and convenient locations. This collaboration leverages these strengths, empowering us to identify potential risks early, guide patients towards appropriate next steps, and, above all, instil confidence and reassurance in every healthcare interaction, ultimately contributing to a healthier community.”

In an industry where collaborations between hospitals and retail pharmacies are rare, the partnership between CVSKL and Alpro Group, the holding company of Malaysia’s largest prescription pharmacy chain – Alpro Pharmacy, emphasises a common commitment to enhancing patients’ well-being. This strategic alliance recognises the distinctive role of pharmacists within the healthcare ecosystem who often develop personal connections with patients who frequent their pharmacies and are uniquely positioned to promote cardiovascular care. Klang Valley, Seremban and Johor have been selected for the initial phase of this collaboration.

How do you know if you have heart failure or if it is getting worse?

Heart failure is a syndrome of ventricular dysfunction where the heart muscle becomes weak and can’t pump blood and oxygen around the body as well as it usually does.

For people with heart failure, the heart muscle would try to adapt by increasing in size and thickness. But over time this would cause the heart not to be able to contract or relax properly. When this happens, you will experience shortness of breath, fatigue, swelling in the legs, ankles and feet and many other symptoms.

在这次采访中, Dr Tamil Selvan Muthusamy, Consultant Cardiologist from Cardiac Vascular Sentral Kuala Lumpur (CVSKL) will be sharing his insights on the different aspects of cardiology in heart failure, angioplasty, heartbeat rate and more!

Dr Tamil Selvan Muthusamy, Consultant Cardiologist from CVSKL

The volume of blood pumped by the heart is determined by:

  • The contraction of the heart muscle — how well the heart squeezes
  • The filling of the heart chambers — how well the heart relaxes and fills with blood

Heart failure is classified based on which of these two functions is abnormal. If the heart muscle is too weak, the condition is known as heart failure with a reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).

Ejection fraction is used to evaluate the heart’s pump function; it is the percentage of blood pumped from the left ventricle (the main pumping chamber) per beat. Normal ejection fractions are greater than or equal to 50%.

Dr Tamil Selvan explained that apart from enlarged hearts, there are also heart conditions which are difficult to recognise. This condition is known as heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). It is where the heart pumps normally but is too stiff to fill properly.

Treating the Underlying Causes

A number of conditions can contribute to heart failure such as:

  • Coronary heart disease – where the arteries that supply blood to the heart become clogged up with fatty substances, which may cause angina or a heart attack.
  • High blood pressure – this can put extra strain on the heart, which over time can lead to heart failure.
  • Conditions affecting the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy).
  • Narrow and leaking heart valves.
  • Congenital heart disease – birth defects that affect the normal workings of the heart.
  • Infiltrative Cardiovascular Diseases: Cardiomyopathies – Deposition of abnormal substances that cause the ventricular walls to become progressively rigid, thereby impeding ventricular filling.

Metabolism problems such as diabetes, consuming too much alcohol, an overactive thyroid or high pressure in the lungs (pulmonary hypertension) can also lead to heart failure.

What should my heart rate be?

The heart rate is one of the most important indicators of health in the human body. Physical activity, threats to one’s safety, and emotional responses would all cause variations in our heart rate.

A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. Generally, a lower heart rate at rest implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness.

“While a normal heart rate does not guarantee that a person is free of health problems, it is a useful benchmark for identifying a range of health issues. If your baseline heart rate is constantly high even if you are at rest, this would greatly affect your cardiovascular health. This is also another sign that you should consult a medical practitioner to make sure that there is no underlying heart disease,” said Dr Tamil Selvan.

What happens if arteries become clogged with plaque?

Healthy arteries are flexible and elastic. But over time, the walls in the arteries can harden, a condition commonly called hardening of the arteries.

Dr Tamil Selvan explained that arteries can become blocked up because of the deposits of plaque — the buildup of fat, cholesterol, cells, and other substances. This condition is called atherosclerosis. These buildups narrow your arteries, decreasing blood flow to your heart which would cause chest pain, shortness of breath or even a heart attack.

Although atherosclerosis is often considered a heart problem, it can affect arteries anywhere in the body.

Angioplasty: Treatment for Heart Disease

Treatment of heart attack is one of the great success stories in modern medicine. A number of innovations have made this dramatic progress possible.

One of them is known as angioplasty, a procedure for quickly restoring blood flow to the heart muscle is one of these key innovations, and it is the best treatment for stopping a heart attack that is in progress.

Angioplasty is often combined with the placement of a small wire mesh tube called a stent. The stent helps prop the artery open, decreasing its chance of narrowing again. It also reduces scar tissue from forming.

After an Angioplasty

While successful angioplasty improves blood flow in your arteries, it doesn’t fix the underlying condition that causes the buildup in your arteries. To reduce the risk of further blockage in your arteries, you should:

  • Stick to a heart-healthy diet low in saturated fat
  • 定期锻炼
  • Quit smoking and reduce alcohol consumption
  • Manage your stress levels.
  • Keep your blood pressure and cholesterol down

Outlook for heart failure

Heart failure is a serious condition. It can severely limit the activities you’re able to do and is often eventually fatal. Hence, if you have an underlying heart condition, it’s important to talk with your doctor about these problems.

Caring for one heart to another through free heart treatments

KUALA LUMPUR (NOVEMBER 26, 2022) – Cardiac Vascular Sentral Kuala Lumpur (CVSKL) commemorated its 5th Anniversary this year with its annual Charity Day; this time with the support from CVSKL 基金会, a charitable non–profit organization founded by prominent healthcare professionals and governed by a distinguished Board of Trustees who are industry leaders in various sectors. 

CVSKL Charity Day is spearheaded by its Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Dr. Yahya bin Awang who believes that private hospitals should always contribute back to society, especially the underprivileged segment who may not be able to afford medical treatment. This campaign has benefitted many B40 patients and now with the CVSKL Foundation as its charity partner, they can increase the assistance to a greater pool of cardiac and vascular patients. Among the cases that were done were angioplasties, arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation, and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG).

This initiative was also strongly supported by our long-term partners in the medical industry such as Boston Scientific, Medtronic, Biosense Webster, Orbus Neich, Alvi Medica, Bard, B. Braun, Mitsu Scientific, Terumo, MK Trimedic, Medisense, Stellar Medical, BKS Medik, HNA Medical, Biosensors, Cook Medical and Gaia Medical. The participating doctors waived their professional fees and the hospital complemented these efforts by waiving all charges.

Tan Sri Datuk Seri Rashpal Singh Randhay, Chairman of CVSKL Foundation shared that “One of the missions of CVSKL Foundation is to provide support for low-income group patients suffering from cardiothoracic and vascular diseases. On behalf of the trustees, we’d like to thank CVSKL for extending a helping hand to these patients.”

Tan Sri Dato’ Dr. Yahya Awang, Chairman of CVSKL also commented on the philanthropic effort, “I am proud that we can make this an annual occasion to highlight our core belief as a private heart center in giving back to the society as much as we can. I am proud that this continuous effort has made an impact on our underprivileged patients and thankful that we were given such a meaningful chance to aspire others to do the same to improve the quality of healthcare to ensure the B40 patients are not being neglected.” 

Being the first private cardiac hospital in the region, CVSKL is looking forward to many more future charitable contributions via CVSKL 基金会 non-profit body to strengthen their CSR presence in Malaysia. The foundation is currently open for donations where no amount of contribution is too small or too big.

然而,马来西亚的心脏病患病率却在不断增加。以前是老年人的病,现在看得更早了。根据 Department of Statistics of Malaysia 2021, 缺血性心脏病(由心脏动脉狭窄引起的心脏问题)仍然是主要的死亡原因,在 2020 年经医学证实的 109,155 例死亡中占 17%。

有些症状甚至不会发生在您的胸部,而且要判断发生了什么并不总是那么容易。如果您年满 60 岁、超重、患有糖尿病、高胆固醇或高血压,则尤其如此。您拥有的风险因素越多,您患心脏相关问题的可能性就越大。


#BreakTheHeartAche 是一项公共教育活动,旨在提高马来西亚对心脏病的认识。该活动由吉隆坡心脏血管中心和马来西亚 Viatris 联合举办,强调及早发现心脏问题并寻求相关治疗的重要性。

根据主持人、播客和健身企业家的说法 Maggy Wang 他也是活动大使,#BreakTheHeartAche 是一项主要强调心脏病问题的活动,例如高血压、糖尿病和高胆固醇。

Maggy Wang,#BreakTheHeartAche 活动大使

“看起来健康和身体健康不是一回事,因为心脏病会影响 大部分人.例如,如果我们看看今天的生活方式,我们大多数人更喜欢食用大量现成的加工食品和快餐。摄入过多会增加饱和脂肪的摄入量,从而增加心脏病发作、胆固醇、中风和许多其他并发症的风险”





CVSKL 心脏专家 Dr. Al Fazir

根据 Fazir 博士的说法,心血管疾病(心脏病)是指一组影响身体心脏和血管的疾病。一个人可能会出现胸部不适或呼吸急促的症状,但有些患者可能根本没有任何症状。



Dr. Al Fazir 指出,心脏病的症状会因病因而异。一些症状包括:

  • 左侧/中央胸痛。
  • 出汗。
  • 头昏眼花。
  • 呼吸短促
  • 背疼
  • 左臂疼痛,偶尔会放射到下巴



Dr. Fazir 进一步解释说,有一些常见的测试可以诊断心血管疾病,其中包括:

1.验血 评估您的基线血液读数,例如测量您的胆固醇糖和肾脏水平。

2. 心电图检查 (ECG) 记录您心脏的电活动。

3.超声心动图 – 超声波(类似于婴儿扫描仪)使用声波可视化您的心脏结构


5. 在需要时使用先进的工具来详细评估您的心脏,例如 心脏CT和心脏MRI.

6.冠状动脉造影, 当患者有明显冠状动脉疾病或不稳定症状的证据时


活动主题 #BreakTheHeartAche 诞生的目的是教育人们打破心脏病的耻辱感并遏制这种疾病的严重性。

如何 Viatris 支持可持续的医疗保健计划?

根据 Viatris Malaysia 的国家经理 Jeff Bote 的说法,所有医疗保健行业都可以在制定可持续发展计划方面发挥作用。在 Viatris,他们致力于 3 个支柱,即 访问、领导和伙伴关系。

Jeff Bote, Country Manager of Viatris Malaysia

因此,通过与 CVSKL 的合作, #BreakTheHeartAche 活动肯定会向社区传达早期筛查的重要性。众所周知,“预防胜于治疗!”

共同合作 #BreakTheHeartAche campaign?

未经治疗的高血压会导致严重后果,例如心脏病发作、中风和其他心血管疾病。 2019年全国健康发病率调查的最新数据显示, 3 in 10 or 6.4 million people in Malaysia have hypertension. Out of this, half of them are unaware that they have the disease.


这符合 Viatris 的使命,即让全世界的人们在生命的每个阶段都过上更健康的生活。


当涉及到您的身体时,请记住您是负责人。如果您发现任何异常症状,请立即咨询您的医生。不要拖延或忽略它。它可能与心脏病无关——但如果是, 及早发现它可以带来真正的不同!

Marion Caunter 主持了与 CVSKL 的 Tan Kia Lean 医生关于了解静脉曲张的小组讨论

Marion Caunter 是社交媒体名人、独立企业家,也是三个漂亮孩子的超级妈妈,她主持了一场关于诊断和治疗静脉曲张重要性的小组讨论。标题为‘Knowing Varicose Veins,’ 小组讨论于 3 月 19 日在吉隆坡心脏血管中心 (CVSKL) 举行,是美敦力 (Medtronic) 为提高马来西亚年轻女性对该疾病的认识而开展的公共教育活动的一部分。

该运动旨在为年轻女性提供信息,以识别静脉曲张的早期征兆,以便她们可以在为时已晚之前寻求专业治疗。静脉曲张经常被误解为随着年龄的增长而出现的一种情况,并且由于腿部外观难看而纯粹是一种审美问题。然而,如果不及时治疗,静脉曲张会导致行动不便并影响一个人的生活质量。在更严重的情况下,静脉曲张会限制静脉内的血压,从而阻碍血液循环流向心脏。由于怀孕和体内存在雌激素等风险因素,被诊断患有静脉曲张的女性人数是男性的两倍 ¹。

对于许多为事业和家庭奔忙的女性来说,克服静脉曲张可能会改变他们的生活。在讨论中,Marion 分享道:“作为一名母亲和女商人,我理解女性的忙碌以及她们如何给自己施加如此大的压力,尤其是 20 多岁和 30 多岁的女性,但重要的是要记住,我们需要照顾好自己的身心健康在我们能够关心我们周围的人之前。”

Marion 和她的 10 位 Instagram 追随者都是像她一样的年轻女性,她与来自 CVSKL 的血管和血管内外科顾问 Tan Kia Lean 博士坐下来强调识别静脉曲张早期迹象的重要性以及女性可以采取的预防措施降低他们的风险。陈医生说:“技术在过去 20 年里取得了如此大的进步,我们可以很容易地识别出病情并在它影响您的生活质量之前寻求适当的治疗。如果您怀疑有任何症状,请务必向经验丰富的专业人士寻求帮助,他们会建议您采取必要的步骤。”
