Unfortunately many: physicians are no longer able to read an EKG and depend on the computer interpretation printed on the top. This interpretation can often be affected by insignificant and irrelevant electrical artifacts. At your age it is unlikely that there is ANY abnormality present let alone an infarct. I suspect the Normal EKG is the accurate one and the other can be discarded.
