Fresno Heart Attack Misdiagnosis Attorneys
Misdiagnosis of a Heart Attack and Medical Malpractice.
Every year, nearly one million people suffer a heart attack, and for hundreds of thousands of Americans each year that heart attack proves to be fatal. Unfortunately, about half of those who suffer a heart attack never make it to the hospital. But the other half of heart attack victims who make it into a hospital or medical care facility are counting on medical professionals to accurately diagnose their medical condition and treat them in a timely manner. Every minute a heart attack is going undiagnosed there is an increased risk of injury, and it's essential that the doctor or physician attending these patients identify their symptoms and risk and provide them with at least the standard level of care. A failure to promptly treat a heart attack patient could result in catastrophic injury to the patient including
death. Possible symptoms of a heart attack include:
- A sensation of tightness in the chest area
- Chest Pain
- Cold, sweaty skin
- Lightheadedness, nausea, or fainting
- Pain in the shoulders, back, neck, or arms
- Shortness of breath
