The computer: interpretation of EKG's is slanted toward providing the worst possible diagnosis. Likely this is an artifact of the computer interpretation, the placement of the electrodes, the positioning of the patient or the lack of using a pediatric interpretation algorithm for the machine rather than an adult one. Take the EKG to a human health care provider for interpretation.
