Heart Attack In Women - The Deadly Misdiagnosis

Nearly everyone in the United States has at least an anecdotal understanding of the symptoms of a heart attack. Whether it was a family member, a friend, a co-worker or a classmate everyone recognizes the classic symptoms - chest pain, shortness of breath, a numbing sensation in the left arm. Unfortunately, there has been a historical disparity between how men and women experience the symptoms of a heart attack - and this has led to a shockingly common occurrence of missed or misdiagnoses.

5 Commonly Missed Diagnoses

Medical negligence can take many forms. From surgical errors to prescribing a dangerous combination of medication, patients can suffer serious conditions. Unfortunately, a wide array of medical malpractice cases can be directly traced back to diagnostic errors - either delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of a condition.

A misdiagnosis can have deadly consequences

When you receive a diagnosis for a serious or terminal condition - cancer, Alzheimer's, ALS, etc. - your whole world changes. Many people decide to confront the diagnosis head on, agreeing to further tests, medication and treatments. Others sink into depression. Some even take their own lives out of a feeling of hopelessness.
