Understanding strokes

The most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that more than 130,000 people throughout Oklahoma and the rest nation die from strokes each year. This is the equivalent to one out of every 20 U.S. deaths in the nation being attributed to a stroke.

High rate of misdiagnosis among multiple sclerosis patients

Treatment advances may have improved outcomes for Oklahoma patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, but a 2017 survey found that many still have a trouble wading through multiple false diagnoses and finding doctors who understand the disease. The three-month survey, which was taken by patients online, identified common symptoms and problems experienced in the community.

Virtual second opinion services could help patients

Even if the errors end up not being harmful, they can be costly and lead to unnecessary treatments. One way to reduce the rate of diagnostic errors is to get second opinions.

Moles and the diagnosis of melanoma

Oklahoma residents who are fair-skinned, who have a family history of melanoma or a history of severe sunburn in childhood, or who are regularly exposed to the sun might have a higher risk of developing melanoma. While only 1 percent of all skin cancers diagnosed are melanoma, the American Cancer Society reports that most deaths from skin cancer are the result of that particular type.

Employer liability for murder outside the workplace

However, they could be held liable for acts that are "reasonably foreseeable" even if the harmful acts occur away from the workplace.
