Misdiagnosis of heart attacks can be fatal

The blood the heart pumps provides oxygen to the body's cells and deoxygenated blood then returns to the heart through the lungs to replenish its supply and recirculate. When Texas residents experience a problem with their heart, the matter can soon turn serious since the heart is a critical organ in the functioning of the entire body.

How can undiagnosed preeclampsia impact a pregnancy?

Preeclampsia is a serious medical condition that can threaten the health of a pregnant Texas woman and her unborn child. Because preeclampsia can result in dangerous and even tragic complications during labor and delivery, legal recourse may be necessary to ensure that victims are made whole after suffering losses.

Could your joint replacement surgery lead to sepsis?

Conditions that used to debilitate people in the past can now benefit from medical advances. Joint replacement surgeries happen all the time these days here in Texas and elsewhere. People who couldn't walk without pain due to the degeneration of a knee or hip joint can receive a new lease on life by having the affected joint replaced.

Maternal loss of a loved one after birth highly preventable

Texas residents who are starting a family or adding to it by having a baby will undoubtedly be happy and enthusiastic as the event draws near. There are many things to consider with having a new baby and one that has thankfully been reduced is danger to the mother. Whereas women were once prone to injury and death related to childbirth, that fear has largely been reduced to a near-afterthought. However, new research indicates that the U.S. has had a worrisome number of maternal fatalities related to a pregnancy. People who have suffered the loss of a loved one in these circumstances should be aware of the percentage of these deaths that were deemed preventable.

The right approach for victims of medical mistakes

A previous post here discussed the sometimes deadly problem of misdiagnosing pulmonary embolism. Sadly, however, pulmonary embolism is not the only life-threatening condition that doctors may fail to identify in their patients. Cancer, heart conditions, nervous system disorders and a host of other serious medical conditions can be overlooked by medical professionals when they fail to meet their duty of care to their patients.

Why are pulmonary embolisms commonly misdiagnosed?

A pulmonary embolism is a significant medical event. It occurs when a blood clot forms in the body and becomes stuck in the pulmonary artery that supplies the lungs with blood from the heart. The deprivation of blood to the lungs can be fatal and it is an unfortunate truth that this serious condition is often misdiagnosed in Texas residents and others throughout the world.

Devices used to save your life could also put it at risk

Anytime a foreign object enters your body, you run the risk of contracting an infection. If you cut yourself while chopping vegetables, skin your knee if you fall or step on something as you walk around barefoot, you expect to take precautions to make sure you don't get an infection.
