Medical News Summary (summary of medical news story as reported by Manchester Online): A world first facility has been opened in the UK where fainting patients will have their hearts checked. People who faint regularly will have their hearts checked with an ECG at the facility. The idea was brought about after a study found that a third of epilepsy patients had been misdiagnosed and actually had heart problems. An estimated 100,000 people in the UK have misdiagnosed heart conditions. Misdiagnosis of heart conditions can lead to death.
