On A Criminal Trace of Crippling and Often Even Lethal False Diagnosis: Lege Artis Cz by Antonín Cuc in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Open Access Journal (OSMOAJ) in Lupine Publishers
In 2010, the Czech Republic participated in the World Health Organization WHO Research to determine the quality of medical decision making in determining diagnosis and to determine an adequate individual choice of patient treatment. The conclusions were really frightening: the relative frequency of fatal medical decision-making errors is 10%, with a statistical accuracy of the tolerance estimate of +/- 2%, with a statistical reliability of conclusions of about 95%. Approximately rewarding results are found in all OECD countries - in all types of outpatient or inpatient health services. In real terms, this means that approximately every 10th accidental visit of the patient to the doctor will end up with an additional health problem. For example, a late-diagnosis of B-type jaundice, a medical prescription of an inappropriate medication that contravenes the health of a particular patient, or contraindicates the contraindication effects of other concurrent medications, or a radiologist misinterprets an X-ray image-with overlooked by emerging stomach cancer, overlooked severely fatal osteoporosis-disturbed bone, a preventive standard examination of the colonoscopy will occur with careless medical manipulation of the colon perforation probe in a hitherto healthy patient. In general, they are seriously threatened patients, sometimes even seriously endangered patient lives.
