Patient Suffers Massive Heart Attack After NY Doctor Said EKG Was Normal…It Wasn’t-

Patient Suffers Massive Heart Attack After NY Doctor Said EKG Was Normal…It Wasn’t-

August 14, 2019 1 By Bertrand Dibbert


The cardiologist swore under oath that the
EKG reading was absolutely normal — except that it wasn’t. Would you like to learn the answer? Come join me as I share with you this remarkable
information. Hi. I’m Gerry Oginski. I’m a New York medical malpractice and personal
injury trial lawyer practicing law here in the state of New York. So now the patient was having significant
chest pain. The doctor in the emergency room read the
EKG, he read it as being absolutely normal and then he told the patient go back and follow
up with your cardiologist in a few weeks. That was improper medical care. You want to know why? It was improper because the doctor clearly
ignored the reading that the computer generated from the EKG. Not only did it generate an EKG strip, so
that the doctor can now look at it and interpret it, but it also gave a computerized analysis
of what the computer thought was going on with this patient’s EKG. And the computer EKG clearly indicated that
there was an abnormality. The doctor ignored it and told the patient
don’t worry about it, you’re absolutely fine. It turns out he wasn’t fine and shortly after
that the patient had a massive heart attack, killing off a significant portion of his heart. Now what was amazing was that every single
doctor that we asked to look at this cardiogram — this electric cardiogram — confirmed the
fact that there were clear abnormalities. And if this doctor had the basic level of
knowledge of cardiologists throughout New York, he would have clearly recognized these
abnormalities and done immediate tests including an echo cardiogram and then would have realized
that the patient needed an angiogram to see where there might be a blockage in his coronary
arteries. And if he had that, he would have recognized
that one of his main coronary arteries was totally closed off. They call that ‘occlusion’ totally occluded. And in that instance, the patient now would
have been able to have that particular artery opened up through a balloon or could have
had cardiac bypass surgery. And if he done those things, when it was observable
— when he was in the emergency room — the patient never would have had a massive heart
attack. So why do I share this quick information with
you? I share it with you just to show you one instance
where a doctor clearly violated the basic standards of clear and accepted medical care
in a cardiac case here in the state of New York. Unfortunately for this gentleman, his injury
was totally preventable. But instead, this cardiologist decided he
knew better when in fact he really didn’t. You know, I realize you’re watching this because
you have questions or concerns about your own particular matter. Well if your matter happened here in New York
and you do have legal questions, what I encourage you to do is pick up the phone and call me. I can answer your legal questions. This is something that I do every single day
and I’d love to talk to you. You can reach me at 516-487-8207 or by email
