3 Lead Ekg Placement
Flipped T wave in lead 3, no other abnormalities. ECG was done due to palpitations, increased HR, and lightheadedness. Normal echo. Is this okay?
Flipped T in III: Normal variant. Would check tilt test to see if heart rate increases when tilted , as you may have POTS postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome Also check TSH/T4 , check for H pylori if any abdominal discomfort, and less commonly consider ANA, sed rate, DS DNA and ACE metanephrines and 5HIAA., if all else negative ...Read more
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

See your doctor: To assess whether the pain in your jaw line is related to your heart you will need a stress test. This is especially the case if that jaw discomfit occurs with exertion. The echo cardio gram will not necessarily give you information about your arteries, especially if these new symptoms. Good luck to you! ...Read more
With congestive heart failure or coronary ischemia would the oxygen saturation shown on the monitor at hospitals drop?
I've had 4 ekgs, 2 stress, 6 holters, mri, cat 4 echos. Are these enough test see if structrallu normal? What could be causing multifocal pvcs?
Too many: I hope that all these tests were not ordered by the same physician, at least not within a short time. The repeated tests you list, if all normal, are more than enough to definitively exclude structural heart disease. "multifocal pvcs", in-and-of-themselves, are not life - threatening. They need treatment only if they cause troubling symptoms, or if there is underlying heart disease. See an ep doc. ...Read more

I've had open heart surgery about 8 years ago, aneurism repair and metal aortic valve replacement. INR is 2.1(low),I wake up with blood in mouth, dark?
Contact your MD: Based on your health history and that fact that you have INR testing, you are likely taking warfarin or a different blood thinner in which case you should contact your doctor and let them know you are experiencing bleeding. It may also be a good idea to contact a dentist as it is not normal for your mouth to be bleeding and there may be an underlying teeth or gum problem causing this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Echocardiogram: evidence of left ventricular diastolic relaxation abnormality. Mildly decreased systolic function. Wall motion abnormalities. Means?
AVR: Aortic valves can be replaced with either mechanical valves or bio prosthetic, taken from animals and treated to prevent rejection. There are different reasons for choosing either valve such as age and treatment with anticoagulants. Individuals who do not wish to be on meds such as Coumadin (warfarin) may have a bioprosthetic valve, however, younger individuals usually have mechanical valves. ...Read more

I had an acute asthma attack, administered oxygen, morphine, and 3 other meds, enlarged heart. Should i take oxygen?
No: O2 should be prescribed by a pulmonary physician after finding that your o2 levels are low. Low o2 mean severe pulmonary or heart disease. Reason should be investigated. You need to stop smoking asap. It is not helping and is worsening your condition. I suspect you may have a combination of chronic lung disease/ reactive airway/ heart condition. Consult an internist/lung specialist soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What should p waves look like in lead v1? What does it mean if different on some EKG?one will show completely positive,one fully negative,another biph
There can be a lot: of normal variability to the p-wave morphology in V1. More so in women. In general a biphasic or mostly upright p wave is usual. Certainly you could have an ectopic atrial activation in which case the morphology would be altered. Physical positioning (sitting, lying or at 30 degrees) for the EKG will also make a difference. Lead position too. Regardless it is usually of no clinical significance. ...Read more

If i had hyperkalemia wouldn't it show peaked t waves throughout entire 12 lead EKG with widened qrs?
Slightly peaked t waves in v2 and v3 on 12 lead EKG but all else normal. Is this ok or hyperkalemia/ mi?
What does an EKG 12-lead impression: non-specific st t wave abnormality mean?I i just need to know what this test result means.
A : A "nonspecific" abnormality means that the wave doesn't look like the typical, standard ekg. The st-t wave is the wave that occurs right after the qrs. Often times the wave doesn't look typical, but it is important to note if prior ekg's have appeared the same for the patient. Also, some medications can cause these changes. ...Read more

Well: I'm electrocardiogram there are usually changes that reflect haven't had a heart attack or myocardial infarction. However electrical abnormalities in the conduction system of the heart can't look like a heart attack or infarct. Also some infarcts do not show up on the EKG. Most the time the EKG is abnormal and shows a prior heart attack or while you're having a heart attack itshows the acute changes of a heart attack but it's not 100% ...Read more
It can : A complete ECG is all 12 leads. Having said that a 3 lead ECG can give suspicion to prior injury or infarct, but not confirm for as confidently. Also matters which 3 leads are being traced, contiguous or not so that it would be more or less accurate if it made an anatomic sense. ...Read more
Cardiology.Wat relarevance dose a Q Wave have on lead 3 of an EKG.Where dose intrascapula fit is this part of another condition? and affects the heart
None.: It is not uncommon for young adults to have Q waves. These are normal and are the first activation of the bottom of the heart, between the main pumping chambers, called the interventricular septum. After that, it splits into Left and Right sides but that first Q wave is picked up as the initial beat of the ventricles before spreading out into the main heart muscles that make the main Signal. ...Read more
Had EKG it was fine that's three this year question is what could cause my chest pain it's sharp pain stabbing could it be my acid reflux or aniexty?
?musculoskeletal: Chest pain in a 22 yo is rarely causec by heart problems ; the normal ekg's suggest your heart is fine. Reflux or anxiety can cause chest pain that is usually squeezing or a pressure/tightness. Sharp stabbing pain makes me suspect a musculoskeletal cause. Consider seeing an osteopath who does manipulation or a good chiropractor- see http://bit.Ly/1kgd0xp acupuncture or homeopathy may also help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
