“last year my previously very healthy mother attended A&E with every single symptom of Aortic Dissection and it was missed in every aspect.

She was told she had food poisoning and put on a ward; where 9 hours later she passed away at the age of 55. The lack of knowledge, management, skills & discussion around aortic dissection is simply inadequate and change needs to happen.”

Sarah

“my 17 year old son died from an undiagnosed Aortic Dissection. This can happen to the very young too.

We need to ensure that A&E doctors are trained to look for and understand the signs of an Aortic Dissection.”

Debbie

“My Brother who was 32, was treated for a heart attack, he went into hospital on a Friday and was kept there with no scans or specialist Doctors and died on the Sunday. This petition is so important.

He had told them my Grandad and Mom had died from an aneurysm and even then no one listened. Early diagnosis is crucial. How many others have lost their lives this way..”

Claire

“My stepfather passed away last month after having a type A aortic dissection. Throughout his 4 hour ordeal, he was not given the proper diagnosis and he died in hospital.

We as a family are devastated by our loss. Awareness has to be raised in order to save lives.”
