Cardiology is a vast and complex practice area which carries a high element of risk.

Cardiology refers to the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the heart.

Examples of Cardiac problems can include:

  • Abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Ischaemic heart disease
  • Angina and heart attacks

Many symptoms displayed from cardiac conditions can be associated with those of other conditions, which can lead to mistakes being made if adequate care is not taken in diagnosing such conditions.


Medical mistakes in diagnosing and treating heart problems can lead to damage affecting the brain, other serious injury and death.”

 

Melanie Lidstone-Land | Head of Medical Negligence and Personal Injury
