Electrocardiogram (Definition)

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

Agree: Machine only doing what it was programmed to do.

A good 20% of people have borderline or abnormal ekg. Many related to variation in lead placement and may have no physiologic correlate.

Ekg could and probably should say: no significant dysrhythmia, ectopy or morphologic change suggestive of underlying heart disease or ongoing ischemia. Please corellate clinically and review with prior ekg. ...Read more

I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?

Cardiologist: These T wave abnormalities are nonspecific and it's important to compare them to any prior EKG if one is available. If none are available the findings may not necessarily be due to any cardiac pathology and may even be a normal variant in a young woman. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and examine you and recommend further testing like an echocardiogram if deemed advisable. ...Read more

Causes of borderline repolarization abnormality (ST dep & abnormal T)? Rest of ECG normal and echo normal.

Causes of borderline repolarization abnormality (ST dep & abnormal T)? Rest of ECG normal and echo normal.

It is likely you are: Referring to a computer interp. Of your EKG. The computer program is slanted to indicate any potential abnormality no matter how insignificant. Ask a human with EKG experience (many FP and IM MDs do not possess any skills in reading EKGs they just read the English) to interpret the EKG for you. Odds are it is completely normal for you. You can attach it to an inbox consult with me if you want. ...Read more

Having shoulder blade pain, with pulpitations, went to the hospital a mth ago with the same issue, ECG was borderline abnormal, blood tests fine..

Cardiac follow up: Pain associated with palpitations and a "borderline abnormal" EKG would sure need fu to ensure you do not have a cardiac abnormality. There are certainly tests more send active than an EKG such as a stress test or a holter moniter. Please make sure you get follow up. ...Read more

What are common causes of an abnormal ECG?

ECG: There are a myriad of causes of abnormal ECG tracings. Any cardiac abnormality that is signficant will usually cause some change in the ECG. Changes in blood chemistries can alter the ECG, high blood pressure, heart attack, lung diseases and a long list including things that really don't mean much but change the appearance of the ECG recording... ...Read more

Normal ECG with abnormal P waves doctors not worried don't understand it all?

P waves: The P wave reflects the area of your heart in which your heart beat arises - usually high in the right atrium. Abnormal P waves can indicate that your heart beat is arising in a different location, but as long as your heart rate is normal and the rest of the EKG is normal, this is not serious and often just a normal variation. ...Read more

I have abnormal ECG - probable rvh w secondary repol abnormality. What does this mean?

ECG: The reading suggests that the right ventricle may be enlarged, if its enlarged it could be because of too much volume to pump or too high pressure to pump against. The ECG is less specific than other tests so its possible the rv is ok. More information is needed. ...Read more

Abnormal T waves: Are not a sign of cad. During an acute coronary syndrome, an ECG may show peak t waves follow by st changes. I do not have your ECG to evaluate but I suspect are normal changes for you. If you are having symptoms like CP with activities a stress test will offer more definite diagnosis. ...Read more

Can someone, please, explain in the commonest words what does ECG axis mean? How do you see it is abnormal/normal on the ECG?

Can someone, please, explain in the commonest words what does ECG axis mean? How do you see it is abnormal/normal on the ECG?

Axis deviation: EKGs show cardiac rate, rhythm, and axis.
Axis deviation is determined by whether the QRS complex is positive or negative in leads I and AVF.
If the axis is positive in both leads I and AVF, called "both thumbs up" the axis is normal. Axis interpretation can generally be described as trying to determine where the heart has an electric conduction defect, fascicular blocks, and axis deviation. ...Read more

My ECG today showed pointed and long P waves and paramedics told me it was abnormal what would cause the P waves to be like this : (?

"p". ..?: Did the paramedics say "p" as in "papa" or "t" as in "tango"? Abnormal P waves can indicate an atrial abnormality, but the echo you list is far more accurate. Tall or "tented" T waves can be normal but can indicate elevated potassium. "Long" T waves (I suspect we'd call them "flat") are a non-specific change; abnormal but not diagnostic of anything. Hyperventilation (anxiety) can do it. ...Read more
