Patient Suffers Second Heart Attack After Doctors Misdiagnose Myocardial Ischemia

The client suffered from acute myocardial ischemia, which is a heart condition caused by a temporary lack of oxygen-rich blood to the heart. The client was admitted to the hospital with acute chest pain prior to being diagnosed with acute myocardial ischemia. The doctor observed the client for 23 hours to "rule-out" myocardial infarction. Serial EKGs and cardiac enzymes were normal, and the patient was discharged from the hospital without undergoing pre-discharge exercise stress testing. The standard of care may have required the performance of an exercise stress test before sending a patient like this client home. Pittsburgh medical malpractice attorneys Rosen Louik & Perry's expert medical team proved that had testing. Had such testing been performed, it would likely have revealed symptomatic coronary disease. This would have led to bypass surgery. The client suffered a second myocardial attack following discharge. The case settled for $525,000.00.
