I had an EKG done it came there sinus rhythm incomplete right bundle on branch block borderline ECG what does this mean is it serious?

I had an EKG done it came there sinus rhythm incomplete right bundle on branch block borderline ECG what does this mean is it serious?

Unremarkable: Incomplete right bundle branch can be a normal variant in 15% of the adult population. It does not carry any significance. Left bundle branch does. Further it refers to the conduction system of the heart, or electrical wiring of it so to speak, and it means your right ventricle gets a signal to pump few milliseconds after the left side. No worries. ...Read more

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

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

Two different parts: The PR interval is a measurement of time it takes for the electricity to travel from the top of the heart, to the bottom. A short PR interval means it the electricity travels quicker than expected. Early repolarization means the heart muscle begins recovering quickly after the electricity has traveled through. ...Read more

I had an EKG done and it showed normal sinus rhythm with left axis deviation with borderline prolonged QT. Does this need followed up?

Yes: By itself, without the total picture, it implies there may be something affecting the contour of your heart. It needs to be reviewed by a cardiologist and your primary care doctor to look at the total picture to see what the next step in a valuation should be ...Read more

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

Possible hemiblock: An abnormal right axis plus minimally prolonged qrs duration defines what is termed a left posterior hemiblock (block of the posteroinferior fascicle of the left branch of the bundle of his). An abnormal right axis can also occur in conditions with elevated right heart pressure and resultant right ventricular enlargement. Normal sinus rhythm means no rhythm disturbance. ...Read more

Borderline ECG, These Minor Changes are of Equivocal Significance only. Sinus Rhythm T wave changes in anterior leads.

Borderline ECG, These Minor Changes are of Equivocal Significance only. Sinus Rhythm T wave changes in anterior leads.

Borderline ECG: I am not certain of the circumstances leading to your having an ECG. T wave changes in anterior leads could be a sign of underlying atherosclerotic heart disease. Risk factors for this include high Blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and 1st degree female relative with heart attack before 60 or 1st degree male relative with heart attack before 50. You need to see a physician ...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?

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

What does sinus rhythm - borderline short pr interval mean on an ecg?

Usually nothing.: The pr interval, the time between the P wave (atria contract) and the qrs (ventricles contract) is typically between 0.12 and 0.20 seconds. If it is a bit shorter than 0.12 seconds but the ECG is otherwise normal, there is generally nothing to be concerned about. If you have episodes of heart racing, you should tell your doctor, as there may be a condition in which you are prone to fast rhythms. ...Read more

What does this mean? - BORDERLINE ECG - SINUS RHYTHM BORDERLINE R WAVE PROGRESSION, ANTERIOR LEADS BORDERLINE T ABNORMALITIES, INFERIOR LEADS

Finding not a diagno: Assuming ur EKG was collected correctly (i.e., the wires & patches were put on correctly), it's not entirely as expected for a person of your age & gender. You have sinus rhythm, but the spikes (R waves) do not progress between the wires as expected, & minor changes in the signals from the front (anterior) & bottom (inferior) part of the heart may be "just you" or signs of (prior?) damage. TTYD. ...Read more

Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia. DR impressions on ecg. This means?

ECG interpretation: The "no acute ischemia" part means that there is no heart attack occurring at the moment. The rest really implies that the ECG tracing was not perfect in its appearance. This could be nothing, or it could be related to true heart disease. This type of EKG would need to be interpreted in context: symptoms, physical limitation, other testing. ...Read more

EKG sinus rhythm rapid, prem ventri complexes, doubles of prem ventri complexes, doubles of aberrantly conducted complexes & more what does it mean?

Abnormal EKG: Lots of people have PVCs and some have bigeminy (doubles) - but the abberant complexes are not usual. EKGs are difficult to read and a cardiologist should review the EKG to ascertain what the irregular beats are (if it is truly abberant). May do further studies to see where the irregularity is coming from, if abnormal conduction may ablate, use medication or pacemaker. F/u/ w/ cardiologist ...Read more

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what does this mean?

Common reading: "abnormal" because there are non-specific changes which are not specific enough to meet a true diagnosis, but not normal enough to say normal, so somewhat of a soft call or indecisive read, but very common and does not necessarily mean anything. The bottom line, the ECG findings need to be placed in the clinical context in which it was taken, and compared to previous and subsequent ECGs. ...Read more

Sinus Rhythm Low voltage in precordial leads. -Old anterior infarct. ABNORMAL ekg?

Yes, by tracing only: It is an abnormal ekg by reading of the tracing but what is most important is the ekg in relation to a good history and clinical exam. Questions to ask: do you have a past history of heart disease, high BP, diabetes, smoking? Do you have chest pain/jaw pain/pain down L arm? Is your BP high on exam? Any of these findings along with the above ekg is a MAJOR concern. Please talk with your doctor!! ...Read more

EKG shows normal sinus rhythm, no acute Ischemic changes and poor R wave progression. What does that mean?

PRWP: PRWP or poor R wave progression can be a sign of a few things: most common problem I see is artifactual: simply a matter of suboptimal electrode placement of the EKG either due to sloppy technique or else breast tissue (in women). PRWP can also be a sign of a previous anterior wall MI or heart attack. Lastly, some conduction abnormalities such as left anterior fascicular block can cause this ...Read more

For Cardiac Patients, will you recommend a portable handheld ECG EKG monitor, And is one single channel enough or should get 3 channel Rhythm leads? Thank You.

No, I do not: Continuous self-monitoring of a heart rhythm is not helpful for any heart condition and is likely to be harmful by way of causing anxiety about the rhythm. For certain severe and unfixable arrhythmias, a pacemaker or implanted defibrillator would be recommended by a cardiologist, but a patient should never be monitoring his or her own ECG strip. ...Read more

Had am EKG today read normal sinus rhythm, septal infarct, abnormal ecg. Please explain what's wrong with me...?

Had am EKG today read normal sinus rhythm, septal infarct, abnormal ecg. Please explain what's wrong with me...?

Check with your doc: I assume you are looking at the computer-generated readout on ekg. You have a normal sinus rhythm meaning heart is beating in a normal manner. The septum refers to the part of the heart in between the two ventricles. I don't usually rely on a readout from the ekg machine itself when I interpret an ekg so check with your doctor before getting worried. ...Read more
