Misdiagnosis of stroke forces Canadian woman to prove her symptoms with a video-selfie.
Stacey Yepes’ first signs of a stroke happened in April. Arriving at the ER hours after it happened, based on her description the doctors misdiagnosed her symptoms as “stress-induced”. However, Stacy was convinced that her symptoms were indicative of a stroke – she just needed proof.
“Because I just needed someone to see what was happening…” Stacy said.
When it happened a second time, Stacy took a video selfie to show the symptoms to her doctors. And she was right. By seeing her video, and not having to rely on her verbal description of what had happened – the doctors were able to get her on the right path for treatment.
Stacy and her doctors have learned that video has medical power. CaptureProof empowers doctors to securely receive and easily find patients’ photos and video.
