Determining Ekg Axis
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
It's on it's side: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, it means the the heart, electrically, is moved to the left. This can be from a big belly, a big heart (bad), electrical wiring that is running badly in the heart or parts of the heart have died off in the other areas (prev heart attack). Even the big belly increases surgical risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an EKG that came back normal, but my P-R-T Axis was 65:72:66 degrees. That's within normal range, but could it signal something in future?
Ekg: Your EKG should be read by your doc not machine, if it is normal then it is normal. No need to worry for a test which is seen as normal by a specialist . ...Read more
EKG has recently started showing biphasic T waves, it didnt before. Had one yesterday, showed Rightward Axis Borderline EKG. What would cause this?
Several causes: These may be a normal variants to conditions that might need further evaluation. Being able to look at the EKG is essential to making a diagnosis. Please consider having a virtual consult so you might discuss this further. Best of luck! ...Read more
What is left axis deviation on an ekg? I am slim, & i don't know what that meant. It seemed a bit scary because i was looking it up, & it had many cau
My EKG said: rate 97, pr 145, rsd 92, qt 325, qtc 413 axis=68/-25/46 qrs axis -15 to -30, qrs negative in v5 or v6, pv1 - .10 mv or more negative?
My 17 year old cousins EKG showed leftward axis and incomplete right bundle branch block. It's abnormal for her age but what does it mean?
I have a asd&asa with abnormal ekg (right axis deviation) >100 they say this is the asd in work overload what would cause the overload? Is it bigger?
Right axis deviation: Electrocardiographic right axis deviation which is increasing over time associated with an ASD can indicate right ventricular dilation. If the ECG is a one point in time measurement, then its reliabiltiy as a predictor of right heart enlargement is less. Discuss with your doctor. Measuring shunt with echo is an easy way to evaluate the ASD. Sometimes a TEE is needed. ...Read more
