There’s A Right Way To Diagnose And Treat A Heart Attack

The signs of an impending heart attack vary. Chest pain is a symptom, but it is rarely the only one. Doctors and hospital staff are responsible for monitoring and recognizing the symptoms of cardiac arrest. Statistics show that women, more oftentimes than men, are misdiagnosed when it comes to cardiac issues.

Misdiagnosis can range from a complete failure to diagnose (totally missing a disease) to wrong diagnosis (for example, diagnosing anxiety instead of a heart attack) to a partial misdiagnosis (for example, diagnosing the wrong subtype of heart disease or the wrong cause of the disease or its complications). A related medical error is delayed diagnosis, which is when a doctor does not recognize a disease until long after it should have been identified. Serious medical problems and even death can result from any of these medical errors. When problems like these occur, attending emergency technicians and doctors may be held liable for malpractice.
