What is an old anteroseptal mi?

What is an old anteroseptal mi?

Old heart attack: This is (if it's real - never trust the computer read on an ekg) a prior heart attack in a specific region of the heart. Essentially the "front middle, " it's usually associated with a prior blockage in an artery called the lad. Discuss with your cardiologist if it's real as you may need medications to decrease future risk of additional heart attacks. ...Read more

What is anteroseptal infraction means, what is its risk?

What is anteroseptal infraction means, what is its risk?

Heart Attack: Myocardial infarction is the medical name for a heart attack. Antero-septal refers to a region of the heart. An asmi (antero-septal myocardial infarction) can cause considerable permanent heart damage as this would likely involve a large area of heart muscle. Optimally, treatment such as angioplasty would be performed within a very few hours to minimize long-term consequences. ...Read more

Septal and usually the -tip of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow.

I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what dose she means?

A problem: The heart is like a room with sides.
These have anatomical names:
anterior
posterior
septal

the anterior-septal is at a junction.
Ischemia is a sign of reduced blood flow with exercise (induced) or a chemical.
It may require medication and even surgery
to eliminate. ...Read more

What is anteroseptal infarct?

What is anteroseptal infarct?

Heart Attack: Infarction is a heart attack, anteroseptal describes the location, which is the front wall of the heart, and the wall between the ventricles. This generally would have been cause by an occlusion in the left anterior descending coronary artery. (lad). ...Read more

What is anteroseptal infarction?

Anteroseptal: Anteroseptal myocardial infarction is usually caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. This cuts off blood flow to the anteroseptal muscle and infarction (death)of that muscle. We call this an anteroseptal MI or infarction ...Read more

Please tell me if anteroseptal ischemia is fatal?

Please tell me if anteroseptal ischemia is fatal?

Could be: The anteroseptal area is supplied by an important artery-the left anterior descending artery that ischemia in this region can potentially trigger a lethal arrhythmia Leading to a cardiac arrest even when the artery is still partially open. More important ishemia is a warning that a potentially dangerous situation exists and needs attention ...Read more

What is sluggish basal anteroseptal motion?

What is sluggish basal anteroseptal motion?

Heart strength: During cardiac catheterization, the overall strength of the heart is evaluated. In addition, the strength of individual segments of the left ventricle are also evaluated. In your example, the strength of the basal anteroseptal segment of the left ventricle is reduced. This suggests injury to this segment, possibly due to coronary artery disease. ...Read more

What are treatments for anteroseptal ischemia?

Several: This just refers to the location in the heart of a lack of blood supply. The possible treatments are medication, angioplasty with stent, or surgery (bypass operation) if there is a blockage. If the reason for the problem is something other than a blockage, such as anemia or lung disease resulting in a low oxygen, then the treatment would be directed at correcting the primary problem. ...Read more

In my ECG it is written as"consider old anteroseptal wall mi" kindly eloborate on this?

ECG: The tracing likely shows Q waves or poor R wave progression in the v1 to v3 leads. This is consistent with an old myocardial infarction but not absolute proof. The notation consider encourages the doc to give consideration to whether the patient really had that mi. ...Read more

What does probable anterseptal mi age undertiminate Q waves v1-v2 neg t's mean on a EKG what does it mean?

What does probable anterseptal mi age undertiminate Q waves v1-v2 neg t's mean on a EKG what does it mean?

Very detailed read: Q-waves on a particular set of leads tells us you had a heart attack some time in the past (age indeterminate = don't know when). The v-leads tell us it was in the septum. T-waves indicate acute myocardial infarction (mi=heart attack), and you didn't have those. Overall, I would say you had heart trouble in the past, but were doing ok at the time of this ekg. ...Read more

I took eletrocarographic phenomenon, it remarked 1 hd (anteroseptal) what mean? I got no symptoms I feel well what 'll I do, blood test?

I took eletrocarographic phenomenon, it remarked 1 hd (anteroseptal) what mean? I got no symptoms I feel well what 'll I do, blood test?

Not sure what: 1hd means, but the computer that taker the ECG spits out its own interpretation. It uses the data and tries to place everyone in a fixed set of categories. Most physicians disregard it because the computer dies not take into account patient history, symptoms etc. I would discuss it with your physician, but the fact you feeling well and asymptomatic means it is probably not an accurate reading. ...Read more

What is a "fixed photopenia in the anteroseptal segment of the left ventricle" mean? I had a nuclear stress test done.

Not enough info: There's not enough information to comment. It can be a breast artifact. If there's no wall motion abnormality, it's very likely an artifact. ...Read more

Nuclear stress test showed large reversible ischemic defect in apical portions of anteroseptal wall. What does reversible mean?

Nuclear stress test showed large reversible ischemic defect in apical portions of anteroseptal wall. What does reversible mean?

Blood Flow: The purpose of a stress test is to see if there any changes in circulation when your heart is put under some type of stress, usually exercise. Reversible in this case means that under stress, there is a portion of the heart that is not getting adequate blood flow. At rest, this blood flow returns. This can be a sign of a partially blocked coronary blood vessel. ...Read more

44 year old female that had had chest pain and was put on a 12 lead the other day and was diagnosed with anterosrptal infarct. Is this serious?

Yes but: This is a common false positive in women due to attenuation secondary to breast tissue. Repeat ekg & get echocardiogram is still abnormal. ...Read more

Got a possible anteroseptal infarct EKG result. How often is this a wrong dx?

Got a possible anteroseptal infarct EKG result. How often is this a wrong dx?

Very often: If you have no history of heart disease, this is likely to be wrong. It's based on abnormal voltage of the R wave in lead v2 and is very often due to lead placement. If your doctor moves the leads around a little (usually going up or down a rib interspace), the infarct pattern often disappears. An echo or nuclear stress test can also rule this out. ...Read more

Can I use herbalife niteworks for patient with acute anteroseptal wall myocardial infarction?

Can I use herbalife niteworks for patient with acute anteroseptal wall myocardial infarction?

Safety is unknown: Herbalife has many products, and since they are not medications approved by the fda, herbalife products are probably not tested for interactions and side effects like real medicines are. So, that means nobody really knows what side effects there are. If an herbalife user hears of some interaction or thinks she is getting a side effect, she can visit her primary care doctor. ...Read more
