Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what to do?

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what to do?

ECG: That is a common ECG reading which can indicate something is wrong but also can be as it says nonspecific and 'no big deal'. Ask your doctor if there is reason for concern or further investigation. ...Read more

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

ECG reads " sinus tachycardia with occasional and consecutive premature ventricular complexes and fusion complexes. Abnormal ECG. What does this mean?

ECG reads " sinus tachycardia with occasional and consecutive premature ventricular complexes and fusion complexes. Abnormal ECG. What does this mean?

ECG: The ecg shows abnormal extra heart beats. This can be a variant of normal or due to various abnormalities. You should discuss this with your Doc who has a better idea of the possibilities in your situation. ...Read more

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what does this mean?

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what does this mean?

Common reading: "abnormal" because there are non-specific changes which are not specific enough to meet a true diagnosis, but not normal enough to say normal, so somewhat of a soft call or indecisive read, but very common and does not necessarily mean anything. The bottom line, the ECG findings need to be placed in the clinical context in which it was taken, and compared to previous and subsequent ECGs. ...Read more

Causes of borderline repolarization abnormality (ST dep & abnormal T)? Rest of ECG normal and echo normal.

Causes of borderline repolarization abnormality (ST dep & abnormal T)?  Rest of ECG normal and echo normal.

It is likely you are: referring to a computer interp. of your EKG. The computer program is slanted to indicate any potential abnormality no matter how insignificant. Ask a human with EKG experience (many FP and IM MDs do not possess any skills in reading EKGs they just read the English) to interpret the EKG for you. Odds are it is completely normal for you. You can attach it to an inbox consult with me if you want. ...Read more

Heart palpitations and dizziness. Ekg showed- shortened pr interval, and high lateral/lateral repolorization disturbance?

R/O LGL Syndrome: The association of tachycardia and a short pr interval on an ekg may indicate an abnormal electrical pathway in the heart that can cause frequent palpitations and a sustained rapid heart rate. There are two syndromes called wolf-parkinson-white(wpw) and lown-ganong- levine(lgl) that are associated with short pr and tachycardia . Medication or ablation can prevent the palpitations and tachycardia. ...Read more

Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Depends: Sinus bradycardia can be normal in a fit individual. Septal infarct age undetermined may also be a normal variant, but also possibly indicate previous injury to the heart. You might want to consider getting further evaluation, such as a stress treadmill ECG test. Depending on various associated healthy issues, this might need to be combined with imaging (nuclear or ultrasonography). ...Read more

Here's what my dad ECG report says..SINUS RYTHM LEFT, ARIAL ABNORMALITY, LVH WITH REPOLARIZATION ABNORMALITY, PROLONGED QT INTERVAL..please interpret?

Here's what my dad ECG report says..SINUS RYTHM  LEFT, ARIAL ABNORMALITY, LVH WITH REPOLARIZATION ABNORMALITY, PROLONGED QT INTERVAL..please interpret?

Must see : It's not possible to "interpret" an ECG without seeing it. These reports suggest the possibility that high blood pressure has effected the heart, making it thicker, but again I am only speaking in general terms having not looked at the ECG myself. ...Read more

Ecg result sinus rhythm rv conduction delay and some wave abnormalities but normal echocardiography should I be concernd?

No: Rv conduction delay is a normal variant in the vast majority of people. Non-specific st and t wave abnormalities have a host of non-cardiac causes and can also be normal. Bottom line: would not let the ekg concern me. How are you, though? ...Read more

Sinus Rhythm Low voltage in precordial leads. -Old anterior infarct. ABNORMAL ekg?

Yes, by tracing only: It is an abnormal ekg by reading of the tracing but what is most important is the ekg in relation to a good history and clinical exam. Questions to ask: do you have a past history of heart disease, high BP, diabetes, smoking? Do you have chest pain/jaw pain/pain down L arm? Is your BP high on exam? Any of these findings along with the above ekg is a MAJOR concern. Please talk with your doctor!! ...Read more

Which diagnostic tests are used for abnormal heart rhythms?

Which diagnostic tests are used for abnormal heart rhythms?

Several: An EKG to see what the exact rhythm is and to look for other abnormalities. A history and physical examination. You may have a heart murmur or appear pale if you have anemia for instance. Blood tests to exclude anemia or an overactive thyroid gland for instance. A holter monitor to catch and record the abnormal rhythm. An echocardiogram to evaluate heart function and the valves. ...Read more

Stress ECG abnormal but coronary angiogram normal, any other test (e.G echo) to ruled out underlying heart disease?

Stress tests: Have higher false positive (and false negative) rate than we'd like to admit. Try getting a session of multifunction cardiogram instead. It is a very accurate stress, radiation and drug free heart test! http://en.M.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/multifunction_cardiogram. ...Read more

Sinus tachycardia~t wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia~abnormal ecg~when compared with ECG of 10-aug-2013 11:38, ~questionable change in qrs?

Sinus tachycardia~t wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia~abnormal ecg~when compared with ECG of 10-aug-2013 11:38, ~questionable change in qrs?

Non-specific: You need a stress test. It appears that you've had one. If it's been >1 year, it should be repeated now and done with an imaging modality such as echo or nuclear perfusion imaging. A resting ekg is a notoriously inaccurate test, especially in middle-aged women. (that's not sexism, it's science). There are many (most) false positives. ...Read more
