Can You Detect A Heart Injury From An Accident On Ekg
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

Rare complication: Whenever things are put down the throat (eg. scopes or fingers) which cause reflex gagging then, in hypersensitive people the Vagus nerve can cause strong cardiac stimulation resulting in standstill or severe arrhythmia to be triggered in hypersensitive individuals. Proper anesthesia of the patient usually avoids this from happening but despite this it's still a rare complication that can happen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Both: If you were involved in a car accident and suffered a cardiac contusion, a trauma surgeon is the best trained to rule out any further injury to other organ parts. A cardiologist should be involved to make sure you don't have any cardiac-related that needs further workup or followup. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible for stress echo cardiogram on treadmill to cause a lower back strain, sprain, or injury?
Back strain: Running on a treadmill is a typical form of cardiac stress testing. If you were unlucky enough to strain your back, perhaps the amount of your walking and exercise didn't adequately prepare you for running on a treadmill. But given the brief duration of actual exercise on the treadmill i suspect you may have been pretty sedentary? ...Read more
Getting a stress echo done next week. Can thallium (cardiolite) cause a heart attack or is it the actual activity that can cause ha during testing?
Stress testing: The circulation of the heart is evaluated by stress testing. Walking on a treadmill or injection of medicine has the effect of stressing the heart muscle. Sometimes additional information is obtained by simultaneously imaging the heart using ultrasound or injecting a nuclear isotope and scanning the heart with a special nuclear camera. The tests are safe and provide very useful information. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Our best understandings of afib require that the heart muscle have undergone changes over a prolonged period of time to enable afib. While it's possible the stress of an accident could have "set off" an afib attack, if it sticks around, you were likely at risk in the first place. A truly severe wreck can bruise the heart, but the fib would pass as the bruise heals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Most certainly: Depending on the speed of the crash and from what direction you were hit, the restrictive mechanism of the seatbelt has the potential to cause damage to the chest wall as well as other structures within the chest. A thorough history and physical examination by your primary care provider or an emergency room physician would be warranted if you are having pain or shortness of breath. ...Read more
No...: An enlarged heart alone doesnt predict mortality. It really depends on your age and condition. Best case scenario the x-ray may have been poorly done, worst case scenario its a condition that should be followed up with a cardiologist. Many variables that detemine prognosis is; age, what exactly is causing the enlarged heart, symptoms, how strong the heart is pumping etc. See a cardiologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
