Diagnoses and treatments for cardiac problems are often complex. Clinical negligence claims for this type of problem are often based on misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosing the true condition. For example, angina and heart attacks are often wrongly diagnosed as indigestion or other minor disorders.
Claims may arise as a result of:
- the correct diagnostic tests not being carried out, for example electro-cardiogram (ECG) tests;
- misinterpretation of test results;
- delay in treating medical conditions such as endocarditis with intravenous antibiotics;
- delay in recognising and treating surgical complications following angiogram or angioplasty.
Unfortunately, failing to give the correct treatment at the right time can result in severe injuries or death.
