On November 21, 2017, the interrogation of the witnesses in the case of soldier S. Mosinyan’s death caused by the professional negligence of the Drafting Commission cardiologist resumed at the Court of General Jurisdiction of Ararat and Vayots Dzor Provinces.
S. Mosinyan died on May 29, 2016. While performing military service, he felt unwell and passed away on the way to the hospital.
On the basis of the complex forensic and military-medical examinations assigned in regard to the criminal case, a charge was leveled against the cardiologist of the Regional Drafting Commission of Artashat.
In accordance with the expert conclusion, cardiologist Seda Tadevosyan could have foreseen the possible negative consequences of not treating the given disease, including death.
The interrogation of the witnesses resumed at the court hearing yesterday.
Melanya Mnatsakanyan, a Drafting Commission neurologist, mentioned in her testimony that the heart rate of a person not suffering from a heart disease should not exceed 85, while that of individuals who happen to be in a nervous state, conscripts included, might reach 100. Yet the rate of 110 beats that was recorded while examining S. Mosinyan, could already serve as evidence for cardiovascular system problems.
It should be reminded that the doctors questioned during the previous court hearing had insisted that the heart rate of 110 was not considered to be a deviation from the norm.
The interrogation of the witnesses is to be carried on during the upcoming court hearing, which is scheduled for 2.00 pm on December 6, 2017.
