St Elevation (Definition)

St elevations refers to a finding on an electrocardiogram, wherein the trace in the st segment is abnormally high above the isoelectric line. Ekg st segment elevation is usually attributed to impending infarction, but can also be due to pericarditis or vasospastic (variant) angina and early repolarization. In some healthy young adults, a form of st ...Read more

I had an ECG done. Borderline low voltage in frontal leads. Borderline st elevation anterolateral leads means?

I had an ECG done. Borderline low voltage in frontal leads. Borderline st elevation anterolateral leads means?

EKG: Ekg by itself doesn't mean anything. It has to be matched with the clinical picture. For example hear attack symptoms with st elevation can be active heart attack. Minimal st elevation without any symptoms could be something called j point elevation. Low voltage most of the time are normal but rarely could be seen in fluid around the heart. ...Read more

What is the meaning of st elevation?

What is the meaning of st elevation?

Refers to EKG change: Refers to changes seen on the EKG of a person suffering a "transmural" heart attack. I.E., in cases where a coronary artery becomes suddently completely occluded by a clot, cutting off blood flow to the entire thickness of the heart muscle in the wall supplied by the artery, a portion of the EKG called the "st segment" rises substantially. This is the basis of immediate diagnosis of a heart attack. ...Read more

Ekg st segment elevation is usually attributed to impending infarction, but can also be due to pericarditis or vasospastic (variant) angina and early repolarization. In some healthy young adults, a form of st elevation can be normal. ...Read more

Is DC cardioversion induce ST elevation or not?

Is DC cardioversion induce ST elevation or not?

Cardioversion: Usually DC Cardioversion does not cause ST elevation if the Cardioversion is in a heart not inflamed or infarcted. Having said that, ST segment elevation could occur if the heart is injured by the current. ...Read more

What is st elevation myocardial infarction?

What is st elevation myocardial infarction?

ST elevation...: Many believe that an st elevation myocardial infarction means that it is a transmural infarct (involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). Some people refer to nstemi (non st elevation myocardial infarction) as non-transmural infarct (not involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). These definitions are somewhat debatable but thought you may be interested. ...Read more

I'm a 22yrs old male ECG shows st elevation what's does it mean? Is it serious?

Likely not: It likely is early repolarization which is a common finding on young people's ekg's. I wish I could see the ekg. ...Read more

EKG indicates T wave elevation in V2, V3 with no ST elevation should I be worried?

T waves: T waves are very variable. Likely you have no reason to worry. There can be some specific T wave abnormalities but they are uncommon. ...Read more

Can you, please, explain why is it, that st elevation in lead iii greater than the one in lead ii is suggestive of MI?

Can you, please, explain why is it, that st elevation in lead iii greater than the one in lead ii is suggestive of MI?

ECG: ST elevation is a vector representation of electrical force. The lead 3 direction usually has less muscle mass than the lead 2 direction. There is no firm rule however only a suggestion because of anatomical variations. ...Read more

Very slight ST elevation in leads V4-V6 on ECG. All else normal... Is this an MI?

Very slight ST elevation in leads V4-V6 on ECG. All else normal... Is this an MI?

Ecg: Very slight ST elevation is likely nothing to be concerned about in and of itself. The waves on an ecg need to be interpreted in light of clinical situations as there are multiple possible reasons for most variations from absolutely normal on these tracings. In a 19y/o minimal ST elevation is highly unlikely to represent an MI unless associated with specific symptoms. ...Read more

What's the meaning of "st elevation myocardial infarction (stemi)"?

What's the meaning of "st elevation myocardial infarction (stemi)"?

Severe Heart Attack: Heart attacks - the lay term for myocardial infarction - comes in two levels of severity. Non-st-elevation (nstemi) and st-elevation (stemi) which refer to changes on an ekg and broadly reflect if an arterial occlusion is total or subtotal. ...Read more

Does The Holter monitor record any ischemic rythm st- depression st-elevation?

Does The Holter monitor record any ischemic rythm st- depression st-elevation?

It can: A hoter monitor is one lead of an ekg which is 12 leads. If the ischemia is in the area where the lead is "looking" at the heart it can pick up ischemia. ...Read more

I was told my son's EKG has a slight st elevation with repolarization. He is 11 years old an an extremely active athlete. Should he stop hockey?

I was told my son's EKG has a slight st elevation with repolarization. He is 11 years old an an extremely active athlete. Should he stop hockey?

Probably not: It sounds like you're referring to normal variant ekg finding, common in young males, called "early repolarization." there's no evidence firmly linking this with future cardiac risk. If your son has had absolutely no symptoms with sports (i assume not), may not need anything more. If any concern, or ekg not convincingly benign to the doctor, an echo will rule-out structural heart disease. ...Read more

Is there any relationship between mvp and st elevation (early repolarization) that I have?

Is there any relationship between mvp and st elevation (early repolarization) that I have?

ECG: Both mvp and early repolarization are quite common. It would take a lot of data acquisition to prove that they were associated and I don't think it will be done soon. You see both independently so often that I doubt there is an association. ...Read more

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

Two different parts: The PR interval is a measurement of time it takes for the electricity to travel from the top of the heart, to the bottom. A short PR interval means it the electricity travels quicker than expected. Early repolarization means the heart muscle begins recovering quickly after the electricity has traveled through. ...Read more

Does going into higher elevation affect a womens menstraul cycle?

Haven't heard of it: Haven't heard of elevation changes causing changes in one's menstrual cycle. However, humans and animals are affected by the amount of sunlight they get, so there might be hormonal differences that occur if there is a big difference in sunlight (above fog/smog/clouds vs. Below fog/smog/clouds, or being indoors most of the time vs. Being outdoors most of the time) after a woman changes elevations. ...Read more
