Anteroseptal Q Waves
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
What does Anteroseptal T Wave changes mean? I have a history of Atrial Septal Defect and Sinus Tachycardia.
ECG abnomality: There may be EKG changes in ASD depending on its type, severity, right ventricular size, pulmonary hypertension etc. T wave changes in leads V1-V3 are anteroseptal changes (meaning changes occurring in front part of the wall dividing right and left chambers of heart). I would discuss with congenital heart specialist, may be you need repeat echo to reassess RV size and estimated pulmonary pressure. ...Read more
ECG finding: Inferior q waves on ECG indicate possible prior inferior wall myocardial infarction (heart attack). To be significant, the q wave must be at least 25% or more in amplitude compared to following r wave, and be 1 mm wide. If it does not meet these criteria, it is a "borderline" q wave, and is less likely to indicate a prior heart attack. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
