Seeking Help After a Heart Disease Misdiagnosis

Heart disease receives lots of attention in the media. People are instructed about preventing heart disease on TV and in newspapers, popular magazines and Web sites. With all the focus on heart disease, it is surprising that symptoms of heart attacks and other types of coronary disease go undiagnosed or untreated by medical professionals.

How a misdiagnosis occurs

Although medical technology has advanced considerably, heart disease is still tricky to diagnose. It requires an ability to read the results of tests and a willingness to listen carefully to patients. It demands thorough analysis of the risk factors of each patient. Busy emergency room doctors and other practitioners on occasion do not take the time to exercise the care required to diagnose heart attack symptoms and other heart ailments.

Failure to diagnose and treat heart disease is found in other places, too. Primary care clinics may fail to order the right tests because they are trying to contain costs. Sometimes they don't even suspect heart disease because they don't question the patient about their risk factors and family history.
