If I am now 55 years old. The result of my ECG is diffuse ischemia v1 v6. Is this alarming.?

Yes, it is: That's actually very bad. You need a full cardiac workup. See a cardiologist.

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

I'm diagnosed of anterior septal wall ischemia last dec 11 & ystrday ECG read nonspecific stt wave change, what to do?

I'm diagnosed of anterior septal wall ischemia last dec 11 & ystrday ECG read nonspecific stt wave change, what to do?

Well: What did you doctor say? Did you ask him/ her as who sees you and did the test is the one with most info on your condition.

I am 62 yrs. Old male & had my byepass 4 yrs. Back. Now my ECG reads as I have biatrial enlargment inferolateral ischemia. Is it serious?

I am 62 yrs. Old male & had my byepass 4 yrs. Back. Now my ECG reads as I have biatrial enlargment inferolateral ischemia. Is it serious?

Not Necessarily: Depends on prior ecg's and whether you are having symptoms suggestive of angina. Check with your cardiologist.

I am 23 yrs old. My ECG reprt shws inferior lateral ischemia. I have done Eco. Eco reprt shows LVH. Dctr said its conginital. Wht I do nw?

Cardiology consult: Left ventricular hypertrophy on echo and an abnormal ECG should be eval'd by cardiology who can help decide if this is truly abnormal or if it is due to an "athlete's heart", or a normal variant. A detailed family history will be needed -- be prepared. Patients are often nervous at the time of a consult. Bring a list of questions, and another person or pen & paper to take notes.

Can ECG detect ischemia? How accurate is it? Her Dr. Did not explained to her what type of ischemia it is because she doenst have any symptoms.

ECG: There are typical ECG changes associated with ischemia. When correlated with an appropriate symptom scenario these changes are highly accurate for the presence of ischemia. In a random situation those changes are less specific for ischemia.

My resting ECG report shows t wave abnormality, consider anterior ischemia and incomplete rbbb. Should I be concerned? I see a cardio in 2 weeks.

ECG abnormality: T wave abnormalities are usually non-specific, especially if you are an otherwise healthy young woman. The computer read-out should always be confirmed and checked by the physician, so you will have more specific info after you get the opinion of the cardiologist. Of course, if you have cardiac symptoms like chest pain with exertion then a more urgent eval is a good idea.

I was having chest pain since morning and docter took an ECG n diagnosed as septal ischemia what should I do?

I was having chest pain since morning and docter took an ECG n diagnosed as septal ischemia what should I do?

Cardiology...: Evaluation by a Cardiologist is of outmost importance at this time. I am not sure if you were referred but this should be the next step. For now I would figure you have been prescribed medications while you get other tests done. If you develop a new event of chest pain you should go to the emergency room for prompt treatment.

I am 39yr of age my tmt report show mild positive to reversible ischemia and my 2d echo report is normal and ecg and pft is also normal. Hdl is 65?

Ischemia.: The unfortunate thing here is that young women can potentially have heart disease - we often overlook this possibility. So we should not take this finding of reversible ischemia on your stress test lightly, despite your high HDL. More testing is needed.

What does it mean if the ECG showed signs of ischemia in the postural valve?

What does it mean if the ECG showed signs of ischemia in the postural valve?

Posterior wall?: You probably meant to say posterior wall, instead of posterior valve. But it probably means there is a blockage in the coronary artery that is feeding the posterior wall of your heart. This can be confirmed with a coronary angiogram and potentially fixed with coronary angioplasty and stent placement or else coronary bypass surgery.

Ecg possible myocardial ischemia inferior plus t wave inversion. How serious?

Ecg possible myocardial ischemia inferior plus t wave inversion. How serious?

ECG: Possible abnormalities can possibly be meaningful or not. The best you can say is possibly serious. More information is needed, ask your Doc about you.

Always had abnormal ECG due to inverted Twaves last ECG said ST & Twave abnormality, consider Anterior ischemia cant rule out inferior infarct. Worry?

Depends: You list "stress echocardiography" - was this normal? It's a much more accurate test than just an ordinary, resting EKG. If your stress echo was normal, forget the EKG but remember to always warn future doctors that you have a "normal funky-looking EKG" so they don't worry.

Hi. I did ECG and results : ST and T wave abnormality, consider inferolateral ischemia, doctor said everything is ok... 27 years old, 60 kg.

Depends: In many cases the EKG machine gives an automated reading. It's not as effective as having a good pair of eyes reading the EKG. I'd go with your docs's advice.

3 yrs ago I had an MI; LAD was 98% blocked. Stented and feel fine. Will this event cause chronic ECG "abnormal/consider ant. Ischemia" warning?

ECG changes after MI: The electrocardiogram may be permanently affected by a significant myocardial infarction. It sounds like your tracing may have T wave inversion or ST segment changes. It would be helpful to review the series of ECG tracings. It is very good news that you feel fine; whether to have a stress test or other test to check further is debatable and should be decided by a cardiologist with all your data

Had ECG doctor says it's normal but I noticed it read Inferior Infarct and no acute ischemia? What does this mean? Should I be concerned?

The EKG computers: Are tilted to analyze for abnormality rather than normalcy. The Computer probably picked up some subtle or insignificant change that is not clinically relevant and indicated it to make the doctor aware. His/her interpretation supersedes anything the computer says. If he said normal than that is what it is.

THE RESULT OF MY ECG IS THIS " SEPTAL WALL ISCHEMIA C- IRBBB" WHAT DOES IT MINS. I AM TAKING RIFAMPICINE DRUG, MY DOCTOR SAID NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.

ECG: At 28y the changes mentioned are unlikely to be from ischemia. Without knowing the patient and seeing the data however, that statement is the most we can make. Your doctor should have enough information to advise you better.

I just had a ecg today and it said on the sheet Sinus rhythm, left ventricular hypertrophy, ant/septal and lateral ST-T changes may be due to hypertrophy and/or ischemia, abnormal ecg. My doctor told me my heart was ok! I had a quad by pass 1 year ago als

ABN ECG after Bypass: Doctor prob means there's no ECG changes from a year ago. ECG was prob abn before Bypass, & worse after. Important questions are answered on Stress test & Echo, & not unreasonable to have a year after Bypass. Important questions are whether you experience unexplained breath shortness or chest/arm discomfort w exertion. Once an ECG is abnormal one can only compare with previous ones (weak test)

Basal to mid anterior wall hypokinesis noted at peak workload. No ECG clinical evidence of ischemia at a max workload.

Unclear question: Your statement did not provide a question. You obviously are under the care of a doctor and she/he would be better equipped to answer your questions as she/he knows more about your health.

Ecg: flat t wave. Echo: ef 60%. Basis on this diagnosis is ischemia. Being asked to undergo stent placement? Should go for it or not?

Need more info...: Would need to know your symptoms and the results of a stress test to clarify better. You are right to ask questions. Except in extreme emergencies, one can always ask for a second opinion
