A 55-year-old female asked:

Not quite: The finding of "no significant arrhythmia" says only that. One cannot read anything else into it. For example, the statement, "Driving around Halloween night, we did not see any big black cats" does not mean we saw black kittens. It merely means we did not see any big black cats. Be careful not to read more into it than is written. Of course, we might have seen kittens, but that is not written.
