On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

Possible hemiblock: An abnormal right axis plus minimally prolonged qrs duration defines what is termed a left posterior hemiblock (block of the posteroinferior fascicle of the left branch of the bundle of his). An abnormal right axis can also occur in conditions with elevated right heart pressure and resultant right ventricular enlargement. Normal sinus rhythm means no rhythm disturbance. ...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

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

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

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

Normal ECG normal oxygen normal chest X-ray normal BP pulmonary embolism??

Normal ECG normal oxygen normal chest X-ray normal BP pulmonary embolism??

Not usually: all the things you report are reassuring but there is no clinical context, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, blood gas. The best test for PE is a CT scan of the chest with contrast , however this may miss small emboli and may be negative after 24-48 hours . IT is hard to be certain from the little data provided . Why did you or your doctor think you might have a PE? ...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

Heart echo echo ekg holter and 1month event monitor normal.Having skipped beats and chest tightness.whats causing it.Skipped beats notrecoded on event?

Heart echo echo ekg holter and 1month event monitor normal.Having skipped beats and chest tightness.whats causing it.Skipped beats notrecoded on event?

Ask details.: Were there isolate atrial or ventricular premature beats on the Holter. Even if there were, if they are infrequent and if a stress-echo test was normal, it sounds as though everything indicates nothing serious. Simply continue to monitor symptoms and, if symptoms worsen, repeat monitoring. ...Read more

At 5yr old heart murmur, normal echo @7yrs chest pain, heartrate 61, normal 24 hr holster, abnormal ecg pointing to lvh. Whats goin on?!?

Chest pain: The reason for the chest pain is not probably cardiac. Other causes like acid reflux or musculsketal chest pain that could cause it. The LVH on the echo doesn't mean anything. ...Read more

Normal values: That is a list of standard intervals and segments measured as a part an ECG. Those numbers look pretty normal, of course there is much more to the ECG than just those standard measurements, things like rate, rhythm, axis, ST/T wave abnormalities, q waves etc. ...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
