Consequences of Heart Attack Misdiagnosis

When a heart attack is misdiagnosed, several severe and potentially life-threatening consequences can occur due to the delay or absence of appropriate treatment. Here are the primary risks associated with a misdiagnosed heart attack:

  • Increased Damage to Heart Muscle: The longer a heart attack goes untreated, the greater the damage to the heart muscle, potentially leading to irreversible harm.
  • Heart Failure: Prolonged lack of treatment can lead to heart failure, a condition in which the heart is unable to pump blood effectively. This can result in chronic health issues and a decreased quality of life.
  • Arrhythmias: Untreated or inadequately treated heart attacks can lead to irregular heartbeats, known as arrhythmias. Some arrhythmias can be serious or even life-threatening.
  • Cardiogenic Shock: This is a condition where a suddenly weakened heart isn’t able to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs, and it is a complication that can arise from a severe, untreated heart attack. Cardiogenic shock is often fatal if not treated immediately.
  • Increased Risk of a Second Heart Attack: If the initial heart attack is not diagnosed correctly, the underlying causes—such as blocked arteries—remain unaddressed. This increases the risk of another heart attack.

The Importance of Timely Action

Statutes of limitations apply to medical malpractice claims, which means there is a limited time frame within which you can file a lawsuit. It is imperative to act quickly to preserve your rights and increase the chances of a favorable outcome.
