Borderline Right Axis Deviation Ecg
What does it mean when an ECG says borderline and extreme right superior axis deviation. Slight high lateral repolarization disturbance consider Ische?
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
Borderline abnormal ECG : age44 male, hr 90bpm, r-r 662ms, p-r 147ms, qrs 37ms, qt 328ms, qtc 403 , axis 65 , rvs 1.44mv, sv1 0.82mv, r+s 2.26mv, poor r progression, flat t?
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
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

I am a 39 year old male. ECG results has sinus rhythm (rapid), horizontal axis, incomplete RBBB, QRS = 114, Borderline ECG, what does this mean?
EKG: It means that you have minor changes on your EKG which are of no consequence. Forget about it...Good Luck ...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
ECG: Those terms describe the tracing. They don't necessarily imply any anatomical or fuctional abnormality. ...Read more
Understanding based: on both heart anatomy & how the electrical stimulation spreads from cell-to-cell with the atria, then within the ventricles. Both terms relate to both heart anatomy & electrical activity within the ventricles, both dominant depolarization biased more to left side (left axis deviation) & altered repolarization (T waves); many possible reasons.

I have just done a ecg and it came back with a left axis deviation and t wave abnormality. What does that mean?
Left axis deviation:
What that means is the doctor who was "caring" for you has not been very pleasant or helpful.
Two things to do:
1: Please have your doctor explain all of the information to you. There is absolutely no reason why that did not happen already.
2: You can go online and look for several patient centered articles that will be helpful. ...Read more
In SIMPLEST terms... can you explain ECG axis... what axis (left/right) deviation means...and how to spot it on ECG. thanks?
Electrical axis: Roughly corresponds to size & shape of heart. No simple answer. Can indicate left or right ventricular muscle enlargement, left or right atrial enlargement, dextrocardia, loss of activity by a portion of heart muscle. After you get your MD you can spend some time learning to interpret cardiograms. It is hard. Most Drs are not good at it. ...Read more
My father's ECG interpretated probably MI(inferior) minor left axis deviation and R/S inversion area between V1 and V2 probably abnormal ECG?
ECG: An ECG like that is interpreted in the context of the patients clinical information. The reading is not highly specific. ...Read more
I had a pre-surgical ECG that came back abnormal: rsr in v1 or v2, right axis deviation. My yearly ECG in may was normal. What does this mean?
Had an ECG done and cardiologist says it's normal but I noticed I have right axis deviation QRS 91 degrees. Is it dangerous?Should I be worried?
Right axis: Don't worry 91 degrees in and of itself is no big deal ...Read more
Ecg report says normal sinus rhythm and . Left axis deviation anterior fasicular block. What does this mean?
If your ECG says right axis deviation is this a hypertrophy of the right ventricle or dilatation? Or is both possible?
Neither or both: RAD occurs due to RV pressure or volume overload which can be acute or chronic. Long term pressure overload will eventually lead to RVH. Long term volume overload will eventually lead to dilation. But you can have RAD acutely with neither. An example of that is acute pulmonary embolism. ...Read more
I had a pre-surgical ecg. The result is like : normal sinus rhythm
left axis deviation
what does it mean?
Axis: The preponderance of electrical activity of your heart is directed to the left of your body. This may mean your left ventricle is thickened (hypertrophy), or may be caused by a minor conduction delay (left anterior hemiblock). Neither of these are very serious, and will probably not delay your surgery. Ask your doc about your ekg findings. ...Read more
My father age 60 years ECG reports shows that left anterior fascicular block, abnormal left axis deviation, is it dangerous????
Is regular sinus rhythm, left axis deviation, low voltage complexes and intraventricular conduction defect a normal or abnormal ecg result?
Not really : You need to see a cardiologistGet a more detailed answer ›
My mom's ECG reads as Sinus Bradycardia with a single abnormal conducted beat, Left Axis deviation. What does that mean? She is 54 years old.
Rate <60 & Purkinje: fiber damage within endocardium. Any rate below 60 BPM is defined as bradycardia (not unhealthy). The abnormal conduction & LAD both occur as a result of damage to the Purkinje muscle fibers (look this up) within the endocardium of her heart muscle; nearly alway a result of atherosclerosis & heart attacks within the inner wall of the left ventricle-the portion most susceptible to ischemic damage. ...Read more
ECG: YES IT IS NORMALGet a more detailed answer ›
Many reasons : Axis on an ECG refers to the direction ("vector") of the over all electrical forces generated during each heart beat, as seen from the body surface. It is automatically calculated by the ECG machine, but sometimes the machine can't compute the axis, and it is labeled "indeterminate". It may or may not reflect underlying heart disease, so please have the ECG checked by a cardiologist. ...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?
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
ECG: those values are within normal limits, the appearance of the ecg other than these measurements isn't here so can't be certain there's nothing in the morphology of the ecg that isn't right. These measurements are ok. ...Read more
Can someone explain what do doctors mean with ECG axis? How do you see normal or abnormal axis on ecg? Thx
ECG: The axis refers to the frontal plane direction of the net forces represented in the p wave, the QRS and the T. Each of these has its own axis and normal range for each. Zero degrees is toward the left, -90 is toward the head and +90 toward the feet. There care various possibilities for abnormal axis. ...Read more
In several ECG the machine have interpreted "horizontal axis" (ca. P 62°, QRS -13°, T 50°). What can be the cause?
ECG: This is the net direction of electrical flow and can be influenced by body habitus. Are you short and wide? Do you have a large belly? This pattern is not necessarily caused by heart problems and often as I mentioned is just related to the way you are shaped. It is often seen in pregnant women. ...Read more
Hello, in description of my resting ECG is written: semi-horizontal qrs axis. What does this mean? Is this finding ok or not? Thanks for answer.
Computer EKG reading: The computer interpretation of an ECG is merely calculations put into words. You need to discuss the ECG findings with your physician who ordered it. To be able to interpret an ECG you have to take into consideration a pts symptoms, age, past medical history, and the ecg. ...Read more
ECG: Without seeing the ecg and only given what you wrote, it isn't possible to know whether the ecg is abnormal or not. An axis of 57 degrees is not a 'right axis', 157 degrees would be. Left atrial enlargement has definite ecg parameters but doesn't always mean significant abnormality is present. If it were possible to see the ecg more comment would be possible. ...Read more
