Atrial Tachycardia Vs Sinus Tachycardia Ecg
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
In anatomy, a sinus is a cavity within a bone or other tissue. Most commonly found in the bones of the face and connecting with the nasal cavities. Sinus (anatomy), description of the general term paranasal sinuses, air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose, including: the maxillary sinuses, also called the maxillary antra and the largest of the ...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

No: Abnormal. Low voltage Left atrial enlargement . ...Read more
No definite rules...: Can differentiate these 2 arrhythmia types, although ventricular tachycardia generally causes more severe symptoms such as chest pain, fainting and even a cardiac arrest. Atrial tachycardia almost never causes cardiac arrest, although can be felt as palpitations with lightheadedness or difficulty breathing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Sinus bradycardia can be normal in a fit individual. Septal infarct age undetermined may also be a normal variant, but also possibly indicate previous injury to the heart. You might want to consider getting further evaluation, such as a stress treadmill ECG test. Depending on various associated healthy issues, this might need to be combined with imaging (nuclear or ultrasonography). ...Read more
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
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
Not really pulseless: When VT occurs at a fast enough rate, there is inadequate time for ventricular filling, cardiac output falls, and blood pressure falls. You may not be able to palpate a pulse but an arterial line would show a waveform that is reduced in amplitude. Rate is the key. As tissue perfusion fails, acidosis, hypoxemia and hyperkalemia result leading to ventricular fibrillation and death. ...Read more
SVT and MAT: Mat is a kind of svt. Usually mat implies significant cardiac or pulmonary pathology. Svt can happen in less abnormal hearts. ...Read more
What is the possible effect on a person having an ECG result sinus tachycardia with left atrial abnormality?
Depends: The ekg is one piece of a puzzle. It is also a sensitive test that is sometimes wrong. Those findings may have little to no significance or may be meaningful when looked at in the context of your history. Talk with your doctor to see if further testing is warranted. ...Read more
Can innapropriate sinus tachycardia lead to atrial fibrillation got to go to hospital monday for ECG my heart rhythm gone from normal to abnormal?
Not usually: This would be a bit odd. Usually fibrillation is the result of age, drinking, and diseases which exhaust or stretch out the atria. Inappropriate sinus tach usually doesn't directly result in afib. When it went to "abnormal" are you sure that was to fib? Did they get an ekg? Could well be flutter too, which can occasionally be mistaken for fib. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Automatic atrial tachycardia with exercise? How do you differentiate from innapropriate sinus tachycardia? Which would be more likely in an athlete?
Tachycardia: Inappropriate sinus tachycardia - elevated heart rate (HR) at rest > 100 sitting/standing. Athletes usually have a slow HR at rest. Atrial tachycardia/fibrillation/flutter with excessive HR more common in extreme athletes with exercise. Cause unclear - may be due to electrical changes from extreme endurance exercise to atrial electrical properties of the heart. More exercise not always better. ...Read more

Yes: Generally speaking, it should not be too difficult for your doctor to differentiate between the two on your EKG. ...Read more
ECG result.: “Sinus tachycardia” means that your heart rate is too fast while your heart rhythm is normal (sinus). “Non-specific ST abnormality” means he ST segment of the ECG complex is not completely normal but is also not indicative of a specific disease state. Depending on what medical decision-making led to the ECG completion, more testing may be in order. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You're normal!: It means that your heart rhythm is normal (sinus) but the rate is >100 (tachycardia). This is caused by non-cardiac issues like stress, anxiety, pain, fever, anemia (you mention menstruation) etc. "Normal variant" means that you're normal but we wouldn't choose your EKG to illustrate a medical textbook for students learning EKGs. Be well. ...Read more
ECG reads " sinus tachycardia with occasional and consecutive premature ventricular complexes and fusion complexes. Abnormal ECG. What does this mean?
Sinus tachycardia~t wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia~abnormal ecg~when compared with ECG of 10-aug-2013 11:38, ~questionable change in qrs?
Non-specific: You need a stress test. It appears that you've had one. If it's been >1 year, it should be repeated now and done with an imaging modality such as echo or nuclear perfusion imaging. A resting ekg is a notoriously inaccurate test, especially in middle-aged women. (that's not sexism, it's science). There are many (most) false positives. ...Read more
Diagnosed with sinus tachycardia after 24 ECG end of study on 10mg propranolol. Little exercise and food causing episodes how do I exercise with this ?
Normal exercise: will not hurt you. A good idea is to keep your pulse rste between 60-110 while exercising. ...Read more
I had an ECG that showed 1st degree AV block, sinus tachycardia, biatrial enlargement, and rightward axis. What does this mean?
Very complicated: Right axis has a number of causes. And some of them are serious. For someone on premarin (conjugated estrogens) over age 30 with sinus tachycardia and an ekg showing right axis deviation the most worrisome cause is a pulmonary embolism and an immediate er visit would be paramount. Symptoms would include shortness of breath. Chest pain. Leg pain or swelling and feelings of anxiety. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I did a kardia phone app ecg. I do them all the time. This time my heart was racing out of the blue.kardiasaid its sinus tachycardia. I'm so worried. ?
Not necessarily, but: Sinus tachycardia, or a fast, but normal heart beat, is not in itself a problem, but may be a sign of an underlying problem. If your echo (ultrasound of your heart) is normal, it is likely due to adrenaline surges. I think you asked about palpitations earlier, same answer. Limit simple carbs, exercise regularly and eat small meals frequently. Insulin resistance leads to coronary artery disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome always show up on an ECG and can it be mistaken for sinus tachycardia?
WPW : WPW is defined on ECG but can be difficult to see. If the delta wave is hard to see, it can be interpreted as various forms of tachycardia. ...Read more

EKG 12 lead. Sinus Tachycardia. inferior - posterior infarct. Age undetermined. Abnormal ECG. When compared with previous ECG of 24 July 2015. Vent. rate has increased by 36 BPM. Inferior-Posterior infarct is Now Present. WHAT can you tell here?
Q waves leads II, III, v4, v5, v6. ECG reads LVH. Went on beta blockers for sinus tachycardia. Q waves no longer on ECG. What does this mean?
It means that the: quality of one or the other (or both) EKGs is not good. Most likely your body position changed (lying vs. sitting) or leads were incorrectly placed. Heart rate could potentially make a difference as well. At your age it is not concerning in anyway and is most likely an artifact. Don't worry. ...Read more
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
Atrial tachycardia is a symptom in which a person's heart rate is faster than normal for his age or for the activity he is doing, and the electrical impulse for his heartbeats starts in the upper part of the heart (the atria). An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) ...Read more
