Was Your Heart Attack Misdiagnosed?
The misdiagnosis of a heart attack can have fatal consequences. It is essential that doctors, such as emergency room doctors and family physicians, who most often have heart attack victims in front of them are able to clearly identify a heart attack in a timely fashion. Any delay at the beginning of providing care to the patient can result in loss of life or serious lasting injury.
The signs and symptoms of a heart attack include:
- Chest pain
- Left-arm pain or numbness
- Shortness of breath
- Back pain
- Jaw pain
The symptoms of a heart attack can vary in intensity. If they are not sufficiently pronounced, a doctor may misread the symptoms and send the patient home without the care he or she needs. A physician might fail to look at all pertinent sources of information such as EKG, cardiac enzymes or using imaging to check the ejection fraction of your heart.
