EKG : I would not go by the computer interpretation of any ekg, it is better to ask the physician ordering it for the interpretation.

Is it normal to have headache after a head injury?

Dr. Ruben Nazario
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: It is normal to have a headache after a head injury. But there are several things you need to keep track of. It is not normal for your child to have several episodes of vomiting or loss of consciousness after a head injury. Other worrisome signs after a head injury include seizures, irritability, changes in vision or changes in behavior.

Do abnormal heart rhythms decrease blood delivery?

Depends: It depends on the type of dysrhythmia and the rate. For example, atrial fibrillation with a heart rate in the 70-80s may cause no symptoms at all. A rate in the 150's may decrease blood pressure because there is not adequate time for the heart to fill between beats. A heart rate lower than 30 may cause a low blood pressure because the slow rate. Symptoms often relate to total cardiac output.

I agree with Dr. Fenster. Furthermore, abnormal heart rhythms originating in the lower chamber (most abnormal rhythms are in the top chamber) are fundamentally inefficient beats for pumping blood. These very frequently result in low blood pressures and can cause loss of consciousness.

Does cardioversion correct an abnormal heart rhythm due to prolonged pr interval?

Dr. Michael Fenster

No: A pr interval represents the time of conduction from the time it originates in the sa node, depolarizes the atria causing contraction and reaches the av node. A cardioversion is a procedure to shock the heart back into a normal rhythm and does not correct intrinsic pathway defects. A pacemaker is used for that purpose when necessary, .

A 46-year-old female asked:

I ve had hbp ranging from 170 /110 and pulse at about 100 120 most of the time for about a week despite taking BP drugs. Ekg was negative. Thoughts?

Check with the doc: Many blood pressure medications take longer than a week to have their full effect. Check with your doctor as you may need a higher dose or another medication. Hbp is damaging over the long term most of the time and not over a few days so check with your doctor.
