Is an upright P wave V1 and inverted P wave aVL with tachycardia indicative of ectopic rhythm? other ekg shows biphasic P wave V1, upright P wave aVL
Bruit refers to a sound, heard via a stethoscope, of blood when it flows through a narrowed opening. As blood flows through a narrow diameter within a vessel, the velocity of flow increases and also becomes more turbulent. The importance of this sound is that, if your doctor hears it, it can signify underlying atherosclerosis--i.e. Build-up ...Read more
Ecg read nonspecific st & t wave abnormality myocardial changes P waves showed superior axis normal sinus rhythm w/sinus arrhythmia? What does it mea
What does carotid pulses +2/4 bilaterally mean with no bruit? Abdominal Aorta not prominent? Femoral pulse +2/4 bilaterally. Is that normal?
Abnormal left frontocentral slow waves and sharps.several 1-2 second bursts of 200-250 uV sharp waves intermixed 4-5Hz slow waves.what does this mean?
Meaning of: transmitral spectral doppler flow pattern is abnormal for age. Isolated premature ventricular contractions. Normal 24 hour holter exam.?
Heart ultrasound: 3d color doppler echocardiography is part of the ultrasound of the heart that looks at blood flow across the valves of the heart and measures flow velocity of the blood across the valves. It can accurately measure regurgitant flow (leaky valves) or measure the degree of a valve that is not opening properly. It assists the doctors in assessing valvular heart disease and effects on heart function. ...Read more
Diastolic component: This is the velocity of the flow crossing your mitral valve. The flow from the upper chamber (Left Atrium) to Left Ventricle is regulated by the mitral valve. - Depending on the pressure, volume, muscle of the left ventricle the way the blood goes from atrium to ventricle may vary - Velocities can tell your cardiologist the level of impairment in diastole of ir normal. ...Read more
C/o Doppler heartbeat sound in left ear worse with turning head but stops when pressing on carotid artery. Ent says ears are perfect?
Vascular prob or BP: Your ears ARE perfect - they are hearing the quiet sounds of your heartbeat in the internal carotid artery (next to ear). When you turn your head or press on your neck, you are restricting that flow, hence the changes in the intensity of the sound. The most common cause for this is high blood pressure (BP) or hypertension. Other vascular causes are rare. Get your BP checked & keep a log book of Sx ...Read more
Doppler Ultrasound: Ultrasound has proven to be cost-effective and quite accurate in determining the degree of narrowing in the carotid artery. Many vascular surgeons, including myself, solely rely on it to decide whether someone needs an operation. Mra is not so good and over-estimates the actual degree of narrowing. I would not rely on its findings to decide on operating. As mentioned a cta is much better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lately headache, positionel hearing fading, temp hearing loss. Rushing pulsating sounds while stending, head fullness, pressure. Paunding neck pulse?

Echocardiography report, left ventricle, prominent septal bulge 1.2cm without tract obstruction, also resting wall motion abnormalities were present, spectral doppler shows impaired lv diastolic filli?
Complicated : To understand a report one needs to talk with one's physician. Resting wall motion abnormalities means areas of the heart are damaged and not contracting or squeezing normally. That is the heart "walls" are not moving correctly. Sometimes this can cause the wall inside the heart that separates the right and left side to "bulge". Impaired filling means the heart does not "relax" normally. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Scan by Echo Teacher saw Narrowing of Bicuspid Aortic valve. Was 1.7 CM descending in suprasternal. Parasternal view AV looked normal. Be worried?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a bruit be heard (louder?) rt carotid due to temp pressure (occlusion?) from head/neck positions (occupational)? (duplex sched)
Bruit is turbulence: Bruit is due to turbulence, then anything that change smooth flow of blood in your carotid such as an atherosclerotic plaque which causes narrowing the carotid can cause bruit. Change in intensity of bruit might happen due to change in heart rate, and position of your body. By the way in somebody at your aga chance of real bruit due to carotid plaque is very low. ...Read more
Carotid doppler ultrasound showed elevated psv in right ica but normal ica/cca. What's this mean?
Bruit?: Do you mean a "bruit"? That refers to an abnormal flow of blood with "whooshing" sound using a stethoscope. It indicates a degree of blockage in the carotid artery and should be followed up with a dedicated carotid ultrasound. ...Read more
