What is cardiology?

Cardiology is the branch of medicine that deals with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders related to the heart and blood vessels. It involves the prevention and management of heart diseases, including coronary artery disease, heart failure, arrhythmias, and congenital heart defects. Cardiologists use various diagnostic tests and procedures to evaluate and treat patients with heart-related conditions.

What is a cardiology negligence claim?

A cardiology negligence claim is a legal action taken against a healthcare provider, typically a cardiologist, for failing to provide adequate care or treatment that results in harm or injury to the patient. This can include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, surgical errors, medication errors, or failure to properly monitor a patient’s condition.

Negligent treatment

Over recent years, the complex area of cardiology has seen an increasing number of compensation claims.

Occasionally, medical errors can occur during procedures, resulting in permanent and serious health problems. In addition, there can frequently be a failure to diagnose someone with a serious heart condition, meaning the condition is not treated appropriately, if treated at all. The results can be devastating leading to heart attacks, severe and disabling heart damage or even death. Timely diagnosis and treatment is therefore paramount.

We regularly see clients affected by negligent treatment in a wide range of areas, including circumstances where there has been a failure:

  • To conduct all appropriate diagnostic tests when a patient presents with chest pain
  • To diagnose angina on presentation
  • To warn a patient of the dangers of cardiac catheterisation
  • To diagnose a heart murmur
  • To diagnose a heart problem following an ECG (electrical tracing of the heart)
  • Surgical errors
