While some of these deaths could not be prevented by doctors, some of them could have been. Sadly, many Kentucky doctors make medical mistakes and fail to diagnose heart attacks or other conditions, causing some patients to suffer unnecessarily.\r\nAlthough doctors and cardiologists have been trained to identify heart attack symptoms, not all of them recognize the symptoms of heart attacks in every case they see. When this happens, they may misdiagnose or fail to diagnose a heart attack in Kentucky.\r\nWhen a Doctor Misdiagnoses or Fails to Diagnose a Heart Attack\r\nSometimes a person may have suffered because a doctor failed to diagnose a heart attack. When this misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose affects your quality of life or causes your loved ones to suffer as a result, you may wonder why a doctor couldn\u2019t have prevented the suffering from occurring. If a doctor could have properly diagnosed or treated heart attack symptoms, you may not be injured or your loved one may still be with you.\r\nSome Common Reasons Doctors Fail to Diagnose Heart Attacks:\r\n\r\n \tYoung Age\u00a0\u2013 When a younger male has heart attack symptoms, many doctors misdiagnose or dismiss the symptoms because it is not common for younger males to suffer from heart attacks.\r\n\r\n\r\n \tFemale Patient\u00a0\u2013 When a woman presents symptoms of a heart attack, many doctors may misdiagnose or fail to diagnose it as a heart attack because heart attacks aren\u2019t as common in women as they are in men.\r\n\r\n\r\n \tAtypical Symptoms\u00a0\u2013 Some patients experience typical heart attack symptoms, such as chest and arm pain; however, not all patients suffer the same symptoms. When people experience atypical symptoms, like dizziness or weakness, those symptoms are usually dismissed or misdiagnosed as something else.\r\n\r\nWhen doctors fail to recognize potential heart attack symptoms in a patient, the patient may not receive the critical care that is necessary to save his or her life. Because a doctor may feel like someone does not fit the general profile of a heart attack patient or the symptoms are atypical, a doctor may not conduct the necessary tests.\r\nIf you have been injured by a heart attack misdiagnosis in Northern Kentucky or Ohio, or if you have lost a loved one because a doctor failed to diagnose a heart attack, please call a\u00a0Northern Kentucky and Ohio medical malpractice attorney\u00a0at the Law Office of Schachter, Hendy, & Johnson today at 888-606-5297 for a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.
