Failure To Diagnose And Treat Strokes

A stroke is a life-threatening condition. It occurs when arteries in the brain are blocked or ruptured, depriving brain cells of oxygen. If not promptly treated, a stroke can quickly progress to widespread brain damage or death.

The symptoms of stroke are not always obvious. Stroke victims sometimes experience only generalized warning signs such as dizziness, confusion and headaches. For that reason, a thorough examination, detailed medical history and appropriate diagnostic procedures are essential for detecting a possible stroke.

Far too often, doctors cut corners or overlook key signs of stroke — especially in younger people and others who don't fit the typical profile of a stroke victim. According to one recent study, up to 165,000 people with strokes are misdiagnosed every year. The consequences of these oversights can range from lifelong brain damage, permanent disability or even loss of life.
