Had major cardiac arrest, done angioplasty, stent installed. Given unconsciousness injections, died. What could be the reason?

Hello. I am a 15-year old student. My father had a major cardiac arrest on 6th February 2013.. As soon as he was taken to hospital at around 10:00 am, angioplasty was done and stent were installed.. The next day morning at around 7:30 doctor informed us that his health condition was stable and he would recover soon.. Till 10:00 am he was fine, but he was given unconsciousness injections from the previous day.. After 10:00 am his BP started decreasing and then finally he was no more.. So I wanted to know whether this was natural to happen or was there any malpractice or carelessness that led to this..

Hi friend,

Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is unlikely to be from injection...

This description is highly suggestive of Pulmonary Embolism - clot from legs moving on and blocking lung vessels / common post-procedure.

There is also possibility of another heart attack - in a different area / stent getting blocked and so on.

Only a post-mortem might have shown.

May his soul rest in peace
