Abnormal Q Wave In Ecg
It depends: It depends on the location and size of the Q waves in relation to the other parts of the qrs complex. Ask your doctor to look at the ECG and let you know. ...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
My dad had a MI 3mths later on ECG the report said inferolateral st sagging and 'surprisingly no q wave' what does this mean?
EKG: The ekg has waves with amplitude and direction. A q wave reflects a lack of electrical force in a certain direction. This lack of force has some correlation when a change in pattern with a loss of muscle as is seen in heart damage like a heart attack. ...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
Can be: Hypercalcemia can be evident on ekgs. The most common wave morphology change is tall peaked t waves but there can also be wide qrs waves and flattened p waves. ...Read more
P waves: The P wave reflects the area of your heart in which your heart beat arises - usually high in the right atrium. Abnormal P waves can indicate that your heart beat is arising in a different location, but as long as your heart rate is normal and the rest of the EKG is normal, this is not serious and often just a normal variation. ...Read more
I have ECG conclusion all normal except for III avf abnormal t wave. What is this? Should I take cautions? Tks
Abnormal T waves: Are not a sign of cad. During an acute coronary syndrome, an ECG may show peak t waves follow by st changes. I do not have your ECG to evaluate but I suspect are normal changes for you. If you are having symptoms like CP with activities a stress test will offer more definite diagnosis. ...Read more
My ECG today showed pointed and long P waves and paramedics told me it was abnormal what would cause the P waves to be like this : (?
"p". ..?: Did the paramedics say "p" as in "papa" or "t" as in "tango"? Abnormal P waves can indicate an atrial abnormality, but the echo you list is far more accurate. Tall or "tented" T waves can be normal but can indicate elevated potassium. "Long" T waves (I suspect we'd call them "flat") are a non-specific change; abnormal but not diagnostic of anything. Hyperventilation (anxiety) can do it. ...Read more
Abnormal ECG yesterday mon specific t wave repeat today rsr probable normal variant anterior t wave abnormality non specific please help I'm scared?
Nothing serious: The findings you describe in your ECG are both nonspecific. Such findings do not mean that there is anything wrong with your heart. "Nonspecific T wave changes" are frequently seen in normal people, and often disappear. They are sometimes due to electrolyte changes or other transient causes which do not amount to heart disease. Please do not worry. ...Read more
I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?
Cardiologist: These T wave abnormalities are nonspecific and it's important to compare them to any prior EKG if one is available. If none are available the findings may not necessarily be due to any cardiac pathology and may even be a normal variant in a young woman. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and examine you and recommend further testing like an echocardiogram if deemed advisable. ...Read more
If an ECG which shows irregular ventricular activity with Q waves present does this explain palpitations?
EKG: Possible. Best to discuss ekg findings with your cardiologist. ...Read more
I felt mild chest pain (left side)3-4 times in last 3 days. I carried out ECG and the report looks normal except abnormal T Wave. What it indicates?
T wave: Can be normal. Discuss with your Dr. ...Read more
Had 2 miocardial infarction 15 months ago. Just had ECG and having chest pain. Ecg shows abnormal q waves. Is this a recent mi or from 15 months ago?
It's like someone is hugging me round torsoe for breathing. Oh! My ecg reads: possible left atrial enlargement, QRS low voltage, abnrml t wave abnrmlty?
See cardiologist..: 45 y/o female says, It's like someone is hugging me round torso for breathing. Oh! My ECG reads: possible left atrial enlargement, QRS low voltage, abnormal T wave. Abnormality? Yes, could also be having Atypical Angina for a woman at mid-life. Need to see Cardiologist for proper evaluation and management. No panic just see PCP/ Cardiologist. ...Read more
What does it mean if I have tachycardia with left atrial enlargement, abnormal ECG with t-wave abnormality?
Findings: That combination means you need further evaluation, discuss with your doc ...Read more
Iam 65 years old abnormal ecg Normal sinus rhythm Possible inferior infarction, age undetermined ST& T wave abnormality, consider lateral ischemia?
Automated ECG: The automated ECG interpretation that appears on a 12 lead ECG printout must always be viewed with a grain (or two) of salt. The best person to evaluate your ECG is your doctor. Period. The machine is famous for misinterpretation. Go see your doctor. Have a history and physical done. Then have him/her look at your ECG. ...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?
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
I have abnormal septal motion in left ventricle, EF 60-65% and normal valves. However I previously had an ECG with poor R wave progression. Causes?
Call Cardiologist: Septal wall motion abnormalities in a 19 year old typically speak to a congenital abnormality, not usually ischemic heart disease. You must be seeing a Cardiologist as it would be atypical that you have been told you have SWMA and PRWP. These questions are best answered by the professional that ordered and read your echocardiogram. If you have not seen a Cardiologist, please go see one right away ...Read more
28/f. T wave abnormal on ecg. Chest pain & short of breath at times. Does chest xray (in files) look ok?
Healthtap prime: Unable to see any of your health data with this modality alone. If you wish, log on to HealthTap prime, where one of us can see your data including xrays and more thoroughly render an opinion. A good look at your ECG would also be helpful, for many normal patients have not so normal T wave morphologies on their tracings yet have completely normal heart function. ...Read more
Sudden cardiac arrest f 25 svt normal ecg apart from one recently abnormal s and t waves doc was worried im petrified?
Normal sinus rhythm with sinus arrhythmia Rightward axis T wave abnormality, consider anterior ischemia Abnormal ECG???? . I'm a 22 year old female.
May not be a problem: Sinus arrhythmia is not abnormal. The axis could be rightward in some normal individuals. Likewise, T wave abnormal is almost always non-specific and may not reflect ischemia (impaired blood supply to the heart muscle.). Computer readings of an ECG may not be reliable. Please have your doctor review the ECG and comment further. ...Read more
Can anxiety cause slight T wave inversion? I ve had around 30 ECG during the last 6 months (everytime it was because I went to the ER after having a panic attack and feeling of irregular heartbeat). 28 times I ve had normal ECG but 2 times I ve had what
Unlikely: T waves are usually inverted in aVR and often leads III, aVL, aVF & V1, An inverted t wave in any single lead is considered a "normal variant." Anxiety doesn't cause T wave inversion but, in your case, it is causing multiple ER visits & EKG's and probably more anxiety. You sound miserable but what you need is appropriate & aggressive treatment for your anxiety, not more EKG's. ...Read more
Is non specific t wave abnormality a sign of pulmonary embolism diagnosed chest infection never had abnormal ECG before this?
Not a problem: Nonspecific T wave changes are common and often seen in normal people. They are not a sign of pulmonary embolism or anything else. Many normal people have nonspecific changes in their ECG from time to time. Often they come and go. None of this is abnormal. ...Read more
My dad had a massive heart attack at 60 yrs. I'm 19 yrs old and I've found out I have abnormal septal motion, poor R wave on ECG nd 60-65% EF. Causes?
Abnormal Echo?: Abnormal septal motion can't be seen on EKG. Did you have an echocardiogram? If so, clarify that they've ruled out a condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is a thickening of the heart muscle. Also clarify the type of "massive heart attack" your Father had, as the status of his condition will determine how hard of an investigation should be done to look for HCM. ...Read more
Hospitalized for non-alcoholic/ non-viral hepatitis. Had an abnormal ECG - showed precordial t wave inversions w/ chest pain/tightness into left arm.
Myocarditis: Your ekg in this setting suggests myocarditis. You need and echocardiogram to evaluate left ventricular function and to determine if you have pericardial involvement and you need troponin and CPK enzyme determinations. Treatment is supportive. Rest. Time. Most people recover well. ...Read more
Please clarify quest: The ECG may show either "tall" or "peaked" t waves, or may show "elevated" st segments. The description of "elevated t waves" is incorrect. Elevated st segments can mean many things, but at age 37 without any symptoms, are probably benign. Peaked t waves can also reflect a variety of issues, or may be benign. Would need to see the patient and the ECG to know for sure. ...Read more
