A member asked:

My ecg result reads "sinus rhythm @ axis, nonspecific intraventricular conduction delay". is this a normal reading?

Intraventricular conduction delay indicates that part of the ECG tracing, the QRS complex, is wider than normal. It is not necessarily a significant finding, but one study did find that even if the rest of the heart was normal, IVCD was associated in the long term with higher risk of developing atrial fibrillation. So it is not perfectly normal.

The reading isn't absolutely normal. The abnormalities however don't mean much and the heart could be functioning normally.
