Heart Attacks & Cardiac Disease
Heart attacks (myocardial infarctions) and arrhythmias can come on suddenly, and when they do, immediate treatment is critical to preventing irreparable damage, inability to work or enjoy life, or even death.
Heart Attack Treatment
Today’s technology gives the physician the ability to quickly diagnose and respond to an emergency, saving the patient with no residual damage. When doctors make mistakes, however, even the most advanced technology may not help.
For example, consider the patient that arrives in the emergency room or the doctor’s office complaining of pain in the chest, arm, back, or other areas. These might suggest cardiac disease or more serious heart issues that warrant high priority attention, and the physician has a duty to act quickly to assess the problem and render proper care. A delay in diagnoses, failure to diagnose, or provision of improper treatment, however, can be deadly.
