Electrocardiogram (Definition)

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

Normal nuclear stress, echo, holter 2011. Normal exercise test 7/12, 12 recent ekgs normal. Worth the risk of cath to deal with ongoing chest pain?

Possibly: Depends on type of pain you're having. None of the mentioned tests are perfect and all have false-negatives. If typical pain, consider cath. As with any test, risks should be weighed against benefits. Discuss further with cardiologist. ...Read more

Unspecific septal Hypokinesis on a scintigraphy can be false-pos? All other exams (echo, stress, holter, ekg) came normal. I'm 22yo w/ chest pains.

Unspecific septal Hypokinesis on a scintigraphy can be false-pos?
All other exams  (echo, stress,  holter, ekg) came normal. I'm 22yo w/ chest pains.

Septm somewhat Hypo: Septum is common wall to RT&LFT ventricle. In sinus rhythm (Holter nl) both Rt&Left Ventricle beat ess at same time. Sept moves sltly towards left, but mostlty THICKENS. The other walls more towards septum. More Import is LVEF (Eject Frction). No study perfect. Nl for scintigraphy is LVEF>50% (55%. Many beats averaged in both. All Sept R sl. hypo. ...Read more

Are you on Stivarga?: I found "Interrupt and then reduce or discontinue STIVARGA for hepatotoxicity as manifested by elevated liver function tests ...." and "...Monitor liver function tests weekly in patients experiencing elevated liver function tests until improvement to less than 3 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) or baseline values." You are above 3 times normal. Reduce or stop. call your PCP re liver failure ...Read more

With repeated ECG, holter monitors, ECHO, cardiac MRI and stress tests would long QT syndrome be obvious to diagnose?

Ecg finding: long qt is an ECG finding, would see it on an ECG, or holter; sometimes situational such as exercise, and a treadmill ecg would pick it up. i don't know of any particular echo or MRI findings per se. ...Read more

26 yrs old male. 14/11/2014 : stress test + echo + X-ray + blood test (thyroid) all normal after abnormal EKG (EkG had mention of 743: Possible inferior infarction III aVF ). A month ago was admitted to hospital for palpitations and irregular heartbeat.

26 yrs old male.

14/11/2014 : stress test + echo + X-ray + blood test (thyroid) all normal after abnormal EKG (EkG had mention of 743: Possible inferior infarction III aVF ).

A month ago was admitted to hospital for palpitations and irregular heartbeat.

Palpitations : Can be caused by a variety of things: stress and lack of sleep, due to increase in adrenaline, stimulants such as caffeine, drugs, anxiety, or paroxysmal arrhythmias. Or any combination of the above. They already ruled out hyperthyroidism, another potential cause. If symptoms continue you can ask for a holter monitor to evaluate your heart rhythm. ...Read more

VPCs: Vpcs can be no big deal or sometimes they are a big deal. Generally an otherwise well person with no known cardiac abnormality doesn't need to worry. In some people hormonal states like early diabetes or pcos can cause frequent vpcs. Your dr. Probably wants to make sure there is no cardiac abnormality causing your vpcs. ...Read more

Hi doctors, Can frequent atrial ectopics ( 12063 beats, holter moniter ) cause problems ? Angiogram 3 years ago all clear. Thankyou.

Hi doctors,
Can frequent atrial ectopics ( 12063 beats, holter moniter ) cause problems ? Angiogram 3 years ago all clear.
Thankyou.

Yes, it's a problem: Assuming you have a normal heart rate, your APCs are >10% of your total heart beats. That can cause your heart muscle to weaken and increases your risk of atrial fibrillation. You need a full evaluation for any treatable cause and your heart rate should be assessed to be sure it's well controlled to avoid injury. Is your sleep apnea treated? CPAP may help your arrhythmia if you haven't tried it. ...Read more
