What is a Cardiac Negligence
The term cardiac simply means 'related to the heart' and cardiology refers to dealing with disorders of the heart.
Common Conditions Include
- high blood pressure (hypertension)
- ischaemic heart disease, including angina and heart attacks (myocardial infarction)
- abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias)
- left heart failure (pulmonary oedema)
The majority of heart/cardiac operations in the UK are successful but sometimes things do go wrong and mistakes can have devastating effects.
We have won cardiac negligence claims in instances where:
- a heart attack was misdiagnosed, usually as gastritis/indigestion
- a delay in adequate treatment of high blood pressure caused injuries
- a failure to treat heart failure properly caused injuries
- failure to manage an arrhythmia appropriately, including following a cardiac arrest
Mistakes can be serious leading to brain damage, other serious injury and, on occasion, death.
