Ab­nor­mal­i­ties not recog­nised

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

AN in­quest in Stam­ford in 2007 re­vealed how Nina Je­len had been ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal in Liver­pool and given an ECG heart scan, but doc­tors failed to recog­nise ab­nor­mal­i­ties in the scan.

If her heart de­fect had been di­ag­nosed at this stage, a pace­maker could have helped her go on to live a “nor­mal life span” and record­ing a ver­dict of death from nat­u­ral causes, coro­ner Gor­don Ryall told Nina’s par­ents he hoped lessons would be learned. He rec­om­mended health au­thor­i­ties re­view their pro­ce­dures to make sure pa­tients such as Miss Je­len are cor­rectly di­ag­nosed in fu­ture.
