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
Not usually: Not typically; however, if you also have an accessory pathway (wolff-parkinson-white syndrome), this is a unique situation where af is known to cause very rapid ventricular activation during af, which can lead to vf. Rapid ventricular response may cause cardiac weakening over time, which in turn may increase the risk of vf. ...Read more
Would echo,ekg,stress test,xray,bloodwork rule out any arrhythmia problem such as premature ventricular contraction and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation?
No: Occasional PVCs are normal. Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation by definition is only present some of the time and the tests you list could easily miss this if done while the heart is in normal rhythm. Diagnosis of intermittent arrhythmias can be difficult and frequently requires consultation with a cardiologist subspecialized in electrophysiology, Holter monitor test is frequently used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Only in a Very Few: Generally, the answer to this is a very solid "no." this is a rare complication of people with another condition (on top of their afib) called wolff-parkinson-white syndrome (or wpw). In certain patients having both conditions, the top chamber is too-well connected to the bottom and can trigger ventricular fibrillation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Atria or ventricles: Supra ventricular tachycardia: from upper chambers of the heart, is due to irritability (increased automaticity) or a short circuit (reentry), heart is usually structurally normal. Ventricular tachycardia: from lower chambers of the heart, due to irritability, can occur in normal hearts but is more often seen in hearts with scar tissue or weak hearts and can be life threatening. ...Read more

Heart palpitations and dizziness. Ekg showed- shortened pr interval, and high lateral/lateral repolorization disturbance?
R/O LGL Syndrome: The association of tachycardia and a short pr interval on an ekg may indicate an abnormal electrical pathway in the heart that can cause frequent palpitations and a sustained rapid heart rate. There are two syndromes called wolf-parkinson-white(wpw) and lown-ganong- levine(lgl) that are associated with short pr and tachycardia . Medication or ablation can prevent the palpitations and tachycardia. ...Read more
Rarely: In rare circumstances, particularly when the Omeprazole has been taken for a long time, low magnesium levels in the blood can occur, which can result in heart palpitations. If you feel that this situation may apply to you, i would recommend stopping the Omeprazole immediately and seeing your doctor for an evaluation, including having a magnesium level drawn. ...Read more
Sinoatrial node.: The normal heart rate "pacemaker" center is in the sinoatrial node, a part of the right atrium. Ectopic atrial tachycardia means that the pacemaker region (the part that is setting the heart rate) is in another location, & is acting erratically. Atrial tachycardia implies that it is the sinoatrial node that is acting erratically. They are similar, but the heartbeat starts at different points. ...Read more
Get seen: Some folks are born with problems with the av node and its branches ("right bundle branch block", etc.), or a tiny heart attack or a bit of amyloid or a few other things can cause troubles here as well. A cardiologist visit's probably in order, and you may end up chatting about whether you want an electronic pacemaker. ...Read more
Short PR interval no delta wave, short paroxysmal aFib, IRBBB, different types of extrasystoles and tachycardias plus night bradycardia. Diagnosis?
Lown-Ganong-Levine: Same family as WPW with concern for accessory pathway connecting atria directly to ventricles. BUT unlike WPW, LGL is more benign, and the AV node still possesses decremental conduction. ...Read more
Block vs Re-entry?: The av node is the electrical connection between the upper chambers (atria) and the lower chambers (ventricles) there is av block (1st degree, 2nd degree - types i and ii, and 3rd degree) 1st degree is a just a slight delay in the time between the atria squeezing and the ventricle squeezing. 3rd degree is when the atria, that has the normal pacemaker doesn't send signals to the ventricles. Other. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
All of them: There are no la and RA "leads" on a standard ekg, so i'm interpreting your question as "what can you find with just 4 wires?" the answer is "just about anything." with those 4 leads, i'll have 6 printouts of your heart, good enough to diagnose all types of rhythm problems. I may need the other 6 wires to better classify them, and determine where the rhythm problem is specifically though. ...Read more
How much does an ECG cost? During a physiology practical exam I picked up a slight arrhythmia in my systolic functioning.
Pointed P waves: P wave is made up of the depolarization of the Right and Left atrium---on and EKG the first !/# of the wave is the RT atrium-----the last 1/3 is the LT atrium and the middle 1/3 is the summation of the RT + Lt if the P wave is notched it usually is Lt atrial enlargement if it is just peaked then it is usually Rt atrial enlargement---enlarging of the atrium especially the Lt can lead to a-fib ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I did an ECG test and the results states borderline ECG and possible left atrial enlargement and sinus arrhythmia, can it be reversed?
Is it possible to pick up serious conditions that might cause fatal arrhythmia (Long QT etc) in a routine ECG/holter even if an episode is not caught?
It's possible: It is possible to pick up a long QT syndrome, without any episodes of passing out or rhythm problems. Generally, you'd expect a QTc over 500 ms, before changes in treatment; however, you should see a heart rhythm specialist, or cardiologist, if QTc is unexpectedly prolonged. Medications, gender, and heart rate can also affect your QT interval. Holter measurements may be less reliable than ECG. ...Read more
There are many: different arrhythmias that can be detected on EKG and monitoring. Many of them can be extremely dangerous and life threatening both directly and indirectly. Without knowing exactly what you mean I cannot advise as to whether or not it indicates danger for you or not. Ask your health care advisor to tell you what arrhythmia you have and discuss the results with you more fully. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Recently been getting random palpitations often, no chest flutters or dizziness, 30 sec ecg always normal, could it be an arrhythmia?
14 yo Son had ECG which showed NSR with sinus arrhythmia and mild ST elevation? Could this ever be considered normal ? Dr don’t think needs a repeat ?
(in my opinion) NORMAL....ST elevation (minor) along with benign arrythmias are perfectly normal in kids!! Worse thing you can do is get him concerned about his "heart"!!
Hope this helps...

I suspect I have a arrhythmia disorder. However the ecgs are not catching these. Because they can't catch them I can't get a monitor or cardiologist to track these. What can I do?
What exactly does it mean if an ECG result is that you have "normal sinus rhythm with marked sinus arrhythmia"?
43 year old female. Results read "normal sinus rhythm with sinus arrhythmia. Possible left atrial enlargement borderline ECG.
No clear abnormality: Sinus rhythm is the normal heart rhythm seen on the electrocardiogram and "sinus arrhythmia" the normal variability of the heart rate, usually with breathing. "Possible left atrial enlargement " refers to questionable abnormality of the P waves in the electrocardiogram. These findings are of no significance unless accompanied by abnormal findings on examination. ...Read more
Is rightward axis and borderline ECG bad?,arrhythmias for years,22 y old female,asthma,sleep eat well,stressed,tired, Could I have heartfailure?
Needs med evaluation: Based on the limited information it is unlikely that you have heart failure per se. However, the arrhythmias, asthma, difficulty breathing, weakness and borderline EKG needs medical further evaluation. Please do seek medical evaluation as there are serious possibilities including blood clots in the lungs. ...Read more
Intermittent sinus tachy, up to 160, no arrhythmia& obvs trigger, blood work & ECG all fine in ER. Resting hr normal. Followup waiting still scared?
Fear not: No one has EVER died of sinus tachycardia and it doesn't cause heart attacks or strokes either. At your age (26), your max predicted HR is about 200 so 160 isn't even close. Ask for a 24 hour recorder to see what's up. Thyroid and catecholamines should be checked. Pseudoephedrine (often combined with acrivastine) can cause sinus tachy . ...Read more

Unfortunately your: description of your EKG is not sufficient to understand your concern. Are you describing WPW? The major concern with macrolide antibiotics is QT prolongation. Is there a family history of sudden death? You need to discuss your concerns with your health care provider who has all of your information and EKGs. ...Read more
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
