Failure to diagnose CTEPH

Some Connecticut residents who have chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension may have not had it properly diagnosed, according to a study that appeared in the European Respiratory Review. Also known as CTEPH, it is rare and involves the pulmonary arteries becoming blocked by thromboembolic materials. The result can be pulmonary hypertension. The right side of the heart may fail.

Medication errors often caused by technology

Technology usage in the medical industry has dramatically increased in the last decade. Most hospitals in Connecticut make use of computerized systems to manage patient treatment information. This includes medication dosage and instructions. While the technology is designed to reduce human error and increase patient safety, it has the potential to breed new types of errors and concerns for patients.

Anesthesia errors in Connecticut hospitals

It appears that fear of punitive action may be causing anesthesia providers at some hospitals to underreport errors. A team of researchers used data from the Multicenter Perioperative Outcomes Group as well as institutional quality assurance data to determine that the rate of error reporting from anesthesia providers appears to be much lower than the rate in other studies.
