This is a story about a case I handled which involves a local hospital where a gentleman about 50 years of age was involved in an accident and taken to the hospital.

During his prolonged recovery, he developed respiratory problems (breathing issues) and had to have a breathing tube put in.

This blog is a summary of the VLOG (Video Blog) located in the Wayne Grant video library titled “What is Pulomonary Embolism?” https://www.grantlawoffice.com/video-library.html.

Pulmonary Embolism is a clot which blocks circulation to the lungs. Pulmonary Embolism can kill you. It is usually the result of a clot that has formed in the lower leg, known as a DVT (deep vein thrombosis), which travels through the bloodstream and then blocks circulation to the lungs. There are risk factors, which predispose people to the formation of this type of clot, which can travel. The main risk factor is immobility. We’ve all heard of people who been traveling on planes and been sitting for long periods of time without movement, they are at an increased risk for DVT.

Misdiagnosis is Often the Result of Cognitive Thinking Errors by Physicians

By Grant Law Office on May 5, 2008

Doctors
A 2005 study published in Archives of Internal Medicine found that a cognitive error on the part of a physician, often referred to as “premature closure,” is the single most common cause of diagnosis errors. Premature closure occurs when a clinician arrives at an initial diagnosis that seems to fit the presentation of the patient, and fails to consider other reasonable possibilities based on inconsistent symptoms, testing or medical history.

A physician often begins to make conclusions about the cause of a patient’s problems within minutes of presentation, often before even conducting an examination. Research shows that most physicians quickly formulate possible diagnoses based upon “pattern recognition” and by relying upon hunches based on incomplete information. Using this type of pattern recognition to arrive at a diagnosis is mental processing based upon using shortcuts – known in psychology as “heuristics.”

By Grant Law Office on April 25, 2008

Recent publicity regarding deaths of young adults after chiropractic manipulation have increased public attention about the safety of chiropractic manipulation of the cervical spine. The apparent association between cervical manipulation and arterial dissection has been reported several times in the literature, with increasing frequency in the last 20 years, coinciding with the rising popularity of chiropractic treatment.

In 1999, an unpublished study by the Canadian Stroke Consortium concluded that 21 out of 50 cases of stroke were due to neck manipulation. Their results were based on figures from the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Here is a selection of the top medical sites with a short summary describing the content. There is a lot of quality health information on the Web, but finding it amongst the quackery can be a chore. Luckily many weaker players have fallen by the wayside, and more and more academic, government and research institutions are uploading their information onto the Internet!!
