Interruptions and work tasks

Highly trained workers in North Carolina and the rest of the country who have certain occupations, such as nursing, can be at risk for making errors if they are interrupted. This is according to a study conducted by psychology researchers at Michigan State University.

Diagnosing sepsis

If a North Carolina patient begins to show signs of sepsis, he or she could potentially be facing a life-threatening condition. Since it can be difficult to diagnose sepsis, it is important that doctors, patients and their families be able to identify the condition so the necessary treatment can be administered as soon as possible.

Diagnosing endometriosis

North Carolina doctors may know that endometriosis affects approximately one out of every ten women. It is a condition that occurs when uterine tissue begins to develop elsewhere in the body. This can result in long-term pelvic discomfort and pain between and during periods. If the condition is not treated, it can cause infertility issues and pelvic inflammatory disease.

Many cases of kidney damage misdiagnosed

Many cases of acute kidney injury are misdiagnosed, according to a study from researchers at Columbia University Medical Center. The findings, which were published in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, could change the way patients in North Carolina and elsewhere are assessed for kidney damage.

Why misdiagnoses happen

People in North Carolina may be misdiagnosed for a number of reasons. In some cases, a patient might fail to report some symptoms that would a lead a doctor to a certain diagnosis. A patient may also not get follow-up tests ordered by a doctor that could diagnose their condition.
