On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

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

Electrocardiogram (Definition)

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

SINUS TACHYCARDIA RIGHT AXIS DEVIATION BORDERLINE NORMAL/ABNORMAL ?

SINUS TACHYCARDIA
RIGHT AXIS DEVIATION
BORDERLINE NORMAL/ABNORMAL ?

Further work up: You need further work up including at least a chest X ray and an echocardiogram (heart ultrasound). Your heart rate should not be so fast especially at rest, and a right axis is not the usual form. Important to exclude potentially dangerous conditions like a pulmonary embolus or other cardiac conditions. All the best to you! ...Read more

See below: Your atrial septal defect and atrial septal aneurysm are sufficient to account for a RAD. You need to ask the echo reader to quantitate the amount of left to right shunting that is present. If significant. the ASD should be closed. The other parameters of your EKG are normal. ...Read more

Rightward axis boderline ECG please explain?

Rightward axis boderline ECG please explain?

ECG : We measure many kinds of things on ECG . Borderline findings generally are of little significance. You should ask your doc whether yours have any meaning or are no problem. ...Read more

With repeated ECG, holter monitors, ECHO, cardiac MRI and stress tests would long QT syndrome be obvious to diagnose?

Ecg finding: long qt is an ECG finding, would see it on an ECG, or holter; sometimes situational such as exercise, and a treadmill ecg would pick it up. i don't know of any particular echo or MRI findings per se. ...Read more

What does in an EKG a p axis 26 and qrs axis -23?

Electrical angle: They are angles of electrical vectors of the upper (p) and lower (qrs) chambers of the heart. P wave axis is within normal range. The qrs is leftward but within normal range as well. ...Read more

Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia.DR impressions on ecg. This means?

ECG interpretation : The "no acute ischemia" part means that there is no heart attack occurring at the moment. The rest really implies that the ECG tracing was not perfect in its appearance. This could be nothing, or it could be related to true heart disease. This type of EKG would need to be interpreted in context: symptoms, physical limitation, other testing. ...Read more

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

Two different parts: The PR interval is a measurement of time it takes for the electricity to travel from the top of the heart, to the bottom. A short PR interval means it the electricity travels quicker than expected. Early repolarization means the heart muscle begins recovering quickly after the electricity has traveled through. ...Read more

Here's what my dad ECG report says..SINUS RYTHM LEFT, ARIAL ABNORMALITY, LVH WITH REPOLARIZATION ABNORMALITY, PROLONGED QT INTERVAL..please interpret?

Must see : It's not possible to "interpret" an ECG without seeing it. These reports suggest the possibility that high blood pressure has effected the heart, making it thicker, but again I am only speaking in general terms having not looked at the ECG myself. ...Read more

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

If the tachycardia: is occurring at rest with changes in the P wave morphology then it might be an ectopic atrial tachycardia. If it is occurring during exercise it is not diagnostic and may still be a normal sinus mechanism. ...Read more

Is this to worry about? Cardiac echo said: diastolic parameters borderline abnormal. Lateral peak velocity 14cm/second, medial 6cm/second.

Is this to worry about? Cardiac echo said: diastolic parameters borderline abnormal. Lateral peak velocity 14cm/second, medial 6cm/second.

Borderline: diiastolic dysfucntion. Diastolic dysfunction is caused by the heart not relaxing adequately between heart beats.. The best things you can do are take your medications follow a low fat low salt diet and exercise aerobically daily. ...Read more
