Resting HR 120-160 found in notes I also have Left ventricular ejection fraction 52% been passing out a lot should I be worried/is this the cause?

Unfortunately yes: You could be having a dangerous heart rhythm, leading to the passing out. The ejection fraction of 52% is still within the normal range; however, you are tachycardic at baseline, and the fast heart rate may overestimate your true ejection fraction as well as lead to heart damage. If you pass out again, I recommend calling 911, otherwise, see cardiologist ASAP. ...Read more

Hypertrophy (Definition)

Hypertrophy is an increase in size of an organ or tissue, or a particular part of the body. Examples include muscle hypertrophy due to lifting weights, ventricular hypertrophy (enlargement of a ventricle of the heart) due to high blood pressure or other heart disorders, or prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of ...Read more

I got the results for a echocardiography report and it says on one of the summaries mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy what those it means?

I got the results for a echocardiography report  and it says on one of the summaries mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy what those it means?

Thick walls: It means that the measurement of the wall thickness is increased. If you have had uncontrolled high blood pressure, that may make sense. IF not, it's possible the echo is over-reading it. One millimeter of increased thickness can result in the report saying "mild LVH" .The test isn't super accurate for subtle changes. ...Read more

How bad is mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy on a heart scan?

How bad is mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy on a heart scan?

This used to be: Called "idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis" ihss which was a mouthful reduced to ash, assymetric septl hypertrophy.These may be the cause of sudden death in young athletes, perhaps from arrhthmias, but rescussitation may be difficult. If you know you have this. You warrant a cardiologist to advise management, and it may be minor to nothing, but trust an expert not a website for this. ...Read more
