12 Lead Ekg Electrode Placement
Diagnosis 2/8 from 11/12 stress test. Fixed inferolateral apical defect, myocardial infarct, 2 month a-fib/electric shock. Do i need a cardiac cath?
Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more
Yes: Yes, absolutely. Avr usually has inverted t-waves normally. If you invert left and right arm electrodes, avr becomes avl so now avl has inverted t waves (where as typically it does not). ...Read more
I had nuclear stress study done & interpretation states: Sm reversible ischemia, inferior wall. Ejection fraction 51%. is heart cath needed?
Echo after 5 weeks of female 58 yrs rescue angioplasty followed by cardiac arrest showed ejection fraction 39% with pap = 40. Any need to worried?
Have res cardiomyopathy from cardiac sarcoid found from card biopsy developed arrhythmias may need defib implanted ..does the defib shock hurt me?
Hmmmm...: Ventricular fibrillation usually causes rapid unconsciousness, so you might be unaware of the event. However, if you're still conscious at the time of the shock, you may feel it. People vary so widely in their pain threshold and tolerance that it's not possible to predict for you. Since the alternative is "Sudden Cardiac Death", a brief, uncomfortable sensation is worth enduring. Best wishes ...Read more
Stress echo imaging abnormal a mild wall motion abnormality in distal anterior septum. Ejection fraction did not increase appropriately falling to 55%?
Echo: Those findings suggest disease in the left anterior descending artery. The ef at 55per cent is good. ...Read more
My husband has perm a-fib. Has had maze, conversions, hcm, mitral repair, pacemaker/defib, tikosyn (dofetilide) (stopped). Left atrium 6.4 cm. Will the afib lead to heart failure?
With repeated ECG, holter monitors, ECHO, cardiac MRI and stress tests would long QT syndrome be obvious to diagnose?
Ecgabnormal. Sinusbradycardia, possible inferior infract, lateral st-t changes may be due to myocardial ischemia. Low qrs voltage precor.Leads rr1036.Vr57, rr1036, qrs124, qt428, qtc423, qtd56, prt75 18 50?
Would cardiac mri & mra without contrast, ecg, 48hr ecg, echocardiogram, treadmill ecg rule out the majority of heart problems in 25 yr old?
ABSOLUTELY: This is more than enough testing and most insurers would NOT cover all these tests! Hope this helps ...... ...Read more
EKG 12 lead. Sinus Tachycardia. inferior - posterior infarct. Age undetermined. Abnormal ECG. When compared with previous ECG of 24 July 2015. Vent. rate has increased by 36 BPM. Inferior-Posterior infarct is Now Present. WHAT can you tell here?
How does bystander lightning (not a direct strike) affect implanted pacemakers, defibrillators, vagus nerve stimulators, etc...?
Usually no effect.: The lightning strike (even as a bystander - it travels through the soil & can pop up at distances far from the original strike) can have deleterious effects on your heart (causing arrhythmia) or brain (causing unconsciousness) but these are just as likely with or without an implanted device. All electronic implants have a floating ground, which means they cannot short out because of an external ch ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
EKG came back High Risk Operation.ST Elevation, consider early repolarization, pericarditis or injury. ST&T wave abnormal consider anterior ischemia?
Need further workup: Need to get evaluated for ischemic heart disease myocardial perfusion scan if done and called for this ischemia ,need to further evaluate with cardiac catheterization and or CTA of coronary vessels to clarify the abnormality especially if you are going for a surgical procedure ...Read more

How often do cardiac ablation surgeries result in complications requiring pacemakers implantation?
It depends: It depends on the ablation type: almost never for wpw, atrial fibrillation/flutter or ventricular tachycardia; 1% or less for avnrt (atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia). In avnrt, there is an extra 'lane' in the av node that conducts electrical impulses leading to tachycardia and the ablation can unintentionally damage the whole av node resulting in heart block and need for pacemaker. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My heart structurally fine on echo, MRA, ECG, MRI, holter monitors. Is it unlikely my frequent PVCs will turn into Ventricular tachycardia/death?
Unlikely: With a normal heart based on all the studies you have had, PVCs are usually benign and not like to precipitate ventricular tachycardia. The caveat is that you are on diltiazem as well as amitriptyline both of which can affect the heart rhythm. Thus you should continue to have your EKG monitor. All the best to you! ...Read more
