Were You the Victim of a Cardiology Error in South Florida?
Heart disease manifests itself through signs and symptoms that should be
apparent to a competent doctor. Chest pain, shortness of breath on exertion,
nausea, sweating, dizziness, and pain in the left arm are telltale signs
of a heart issue that requires timely treatment. When a doctor fails to
identify or treat these symptoms, a patient could suffer a potentially
deadly heart attack, leading to further health issues or the patient’s death.

Common Cardiology Errors
Doctors and hospitals can err in a number of ways in cardiology cases.
Many cardiology errors stem from the following:
- Failure to diagnose
- Misdiagnosing a condition
- Failing to correctly manage treatment
- Making a mistake during surgery
- Improperly managing a patient’s medication
Some heart attacks occur when patients do not receive the preventative
treatment they need due to a
medical misdiagnosis. This can occur when a doctor fails to order timely laboratory testing
and imaging studies which can identify a potential problem. When adequate
diagnostic measures are not taken for a cardiac issue, the patient or
his or her family may file a lawsuit seeking compensation for damages.
Another common cause of injury and death among cardiology patients is negligence
during or after heart surgery. These types of procedures often require
a disruption of blood flow. If not managed properly, a doctor could inadvertently
cause paralysis or death. After the procedure, physicians and nurses must
closely monitor their patients for any signs that a blood vessel is leaking,
which can cause the patient’s heart to stop beating or the patient
to bleed to death.
