According to officials, the train crossed 16 stations in 30 minutes. A drive to the destination by road would have taken more than an hour.

In a first, a live heart was transported between two hospitals in Hyderabad in a specially arranged passenger-free metro train, which covered 21 kilometres in less than 30 minutes.

Hyderabad Metro Rail facilitated the special green corridor Tuesday afternoon between Nagole and Jubilee Hills to move a live heart from Kamineni hospitals in LB Nagar to Apollo hospitals in Jubilee Hills, to save a critical patient in need of an urgent transplant.

A team from Apollo hospitals started their journey with the live organ around 4.40 pm, and the train crossed 16 stations in 30 minutes. A drive to the destination by road would have taken more than an hour. “It’s for the first time that such a special dedicated train was run to transport a heart to save a life,” said NVS Reddy, managing director, Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited(HMRL).

KVB Reddy, MD & CEO, of L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Limited (L&T MRHL), thanked the two hospitals for reaching out to them with an opportunity to save a person’s life. “We have taken all safety measures in place along with creating a green corridor to mobilize a special non-stop train from Nagole to Jubilee hills, seamlessly facilitating the transportation of the heart in a quest to save a life,” he said in an official statement.

According to them, all stations were kept on guard regarding the movement of the special train and an ambulance was kept ready at Jubilee Hills Checkpost station to move the live heart without any delay to the hospital. Only a team of medical experts travelled along with the harvested heart in the special train, it said.

Dr. AGK Gokhale of Apollo Hospitals, who travelled along with the live organ in the metro, said that a 44-year-old patient in Apollo hospital was in a critical stage and in urgent need of heart transplantation. When they learned of the availability of a healthy organ from a 45-year-old brain-dead person in Kamineni hospitals, the distance between the two facilities and the traffic on road was the main challenge. “We faced a logistics problem as the two hospitals are on two ends of the city. It would take more than an hour to reach the hospital even if a green channel was created on-road,” he said.

Further, he explained: “If a heart is harvested for transplantation, it should start working in four hours. Short of a helicopter, we thought this is the best option available. We have saved half-an-hour to 45 minutes. This gesture by LTMRHL is highly appreciated.”

The length of the corridor covered by the Aqua Line is  29.8 km.

The average run time of the Aqua Line from Sector 51 Metro Station in Noida to Depot Station in Greater Noida and vice versa is 45 minutes 43 seconds (one way), which will be reduced to 36 minutes 40 seconds, thereby saving around 9 minutes of travel time for the Aqua Line commuters.

The frequency of trains from Monday to Friday will remain the same i.e., 7.5 minutes during peak hours and 10 minutes during non-peak hours. On Saturdays and Sundays Aqua Line trains will continue to run at a frequency of 15 minutes with no skipping of stations.

“Signages indicating the timings of normal and fast trains and the list of stations that will be skipped will be displayed at all the Metro stations of the Aqua Line.

సాక్షి, హైదరాబాద్‌: గుండె మార్పిడి శస్త్ర చికిత్స కోసం తొలిసారిగా వైద్యులు హైదరాబాద్ మెట్రోరైలును వినియోగించారు. ఎల్బీనగర్‌ కామినేని నుంచి జూబ్లీహిల్స్‌ అపోలోకు గుండెను తరలించారు. కాగా నల్లగొండ జిల్లాకు చెందిన 45 ఏళ్ల రైతు నర్సిరెడ్డి బ్రెయిన్‌డెడ్‌ కావడంతో ఆయన కుటుంబ సభ్యులు అవయవదానానికి ముందుకు వచ్చారు. దీంతో గుండె అవసరమున్న వ్యక్తికి డాక్టర్‌ గోఖలే నేతృత్వంలో శస్త్రచికిత్స చేయనున్నారు. అయితే ట్రాఫిక్‌ సమస్య కారణంగా గుండె తరలింపు జాప్యం అయ్యే అవకాశం ఉన్నందున, నాగోల్ నుంచి 40 కిలోమీటర్ల స్పీడ్‌తో పీఏ సిస్టమ్ టెక్నాలజీ ద్వారా గుండె తరలించేందుకు వైద్యులు ఏర్పాట్లు చేశారు.

The organ, which was harvested from a 45-year-old man found to be brain dead, was transported from Nagole metro station to Jubilee Hills metro station.

In a novel initiative, an exclusive passenger train of the Hyderabad Metro helped rush a heart for a transplant from Kamineni Hospital in LB Nagar to Apollo Hospitals in Jubilee Hills. The organ, which was harvested from a 45-year-old man found to be brain dead, was transported from Nagole metro station to Jubilee Hills Check post Metro station.

Usually, by road, the over 20-km distance between the two hospitals takes more than an hour, owing to traffic. Therefore, the special train was arranged at Nagole, which picked up the heart at around 3.30 pm on Tuesday, and paced through the entire stretch of 21 kilometers, crossing 16 stations between Nagole and Jubilee Hills. 

It took less than 30 minutes for the train to reach Jubilee Hills, as the train travelled at an average speed of 40 km/hr. All stations were kept on guard and were informed regarding the movement of this special train. An ambulance was kept ready at Jubilee Hills to take the heart and rush to the hospital.  

In an official release, Apollo Hospital stated that Dr AGK Gokhale and his team accompanied the organ.

“This was a God-send opportunity for us to mobilize our resources towards saving a precious life. I must thank Kamineni and Apollo Hospitals for reaching out to us with this benevolent request. We have taken all safety measures in place along with creating a green corridor to mobilize a special non-stop train from Nagole to Jubilee hills, seamlessly facilitating the transportation of the heart in a quest to save a life,” said KVB Reddy, the Managing Director and CEO, of L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited.

While green corridors are nothing new in principal, this is the first time that the metro railway has been used for this purpose. For the past few years, various traffic police divisions in cities have been ensuring that the ambulance carrying the cadaver organ gets a stoppage free path to the destination hospital.

Recently in October 2020, the Hyderabad Traffic police had readied a green corridor between Global Hospital, Lakidikapool to KIMS Hospital, Secunderabad. The entire stretch of 5.7km could be covered in just 5 minutes due to this. Often, for patients in critical conditions needing such cadaver organs, time is of prime importance as even a few minutes delay can be a matter of life and death.
