Abnormal Ekg Negative Cardiolite
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: 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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Had echocardiogram, nuclear stress test w cardiolite, EKG and 30 day holter. Does the echo and nuclear test rule out CAD or any potential blockages?
Neg echo stress, neg ekg. Holter monitor results 1,000 PACS Dr says benign. Worried about a blockage. Do I need an angio MRI? Very stressed
Relax: Stress is bad for your heart. Negative EKG is reassuring but does not have predictive value for future events. A negative stress echo is a good indication of low risk of heart attack in next several years. No test is 100%. Consider your risk factors for heart disease. If you remain concerned you should seek a second opinion. PACs are usually benign, but can be very distressing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Cardiac MRI, CTPA, EGC 's, echo's, Chest X-rays, PET scan, blood tests, ECG stress test. All these tests, no diagnosis. Could something been missed?
Ecg today. Hr 71 bpm. Normal sinus rhythm. Pvc. Normal axis. Borderline abnormal ecg. Is borderline abnormal because of pvc? Anxiety related palp?
M37.Have low HDL/high TriG.Did tests, results ok.ABI, EKG, Chest XRay, UltraSound Carotid+whole abdomen,Echo Treadmill Stress. repeat tests how often?
Family history?: much of this hinges I feel on your family history. If you have parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or siblings with coronary artery disease under the age of 55 then I repeat testing in 5 years, otherwise probably in 10 years. There is no consensus on this: therefore this is my own opinion as interventional cardiologist. ...Read more

Yes, but not: heart disease. From the data you provided, myocardial infarction, (heart attack) can be ruled out, but not other heart diseases. Get clearance from your doctor to exercise and do it. Also - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Concern? Abnormal ECG "Cannot rule out Inferior infarct , age undet". Normal nuc stress echo. Rapid HB, VT, some chest pain, dizzy exercise, no blocks
The EKG is most: likely over diagnosed by a computer algorithm designed to produce a diagnosis if anything is even a little bit off. It takes a human with years of experience to be able to determine if the findings are clinically relevant or significant. With a normal nuclear stress and echo it is unlikely you have had an infarct. Discuss your concerns with your health care provider for further reassurance. ...Read more
Always had abnormal ECG due to inverted Twaves last ECG said ST & Twave abnormality, consider Anterior ischemia cant rule out inferior infarct. Worry?
Had echocardiogram, ecg, holter, blood tests, urine tests, all looked good. Tachycardia + pvcs persist. Sob + dizzy too. Should i request stress test?
Dizziness: No you should request a tilt table testing to see if u have autonomic dysfunction. ...Read more
For what?: These tests provide different information and have different indications. Stress tests are to look for evidence to support a diagnosis of symptomatic blocked coronary arteries. Holtor is used to evaluate for dysthymia. Echocardiogram is useful to look at the heart valves and other features. Choosing the right test depends on what symptoms you are having. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
