Dextrocardia Ekg Lead Placement
Yes: Yes, absolutely. Avr usually has inverted t-waves normally. If you invert left and right arm electrodes, avr becomes avl so now avl has inverted t waves (where as typically it does not).
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
Depends: In some cases, a 3 or 5-lead ekg provides sufficient information. However, for a full picture of what the heart is doing, a 12-lead is the best. It takes 10 physical leads to produce a 12- lead ecg. Left and right arms, left and right legs, v1-v6.
If I had hyperkalemia wouldn't it show peaked t waves throughout entire 12 lead EKG with widened qrs?
Depends: That is with life threatening hyperkalemia. If your case is mild, or chronic, it may not manifest yet with ekg abnormalities.
Slightly peaked t waves in v2 and v3 on 12 lead EKG but all else normal. Is this ok or hyperkalemia/ mi?
What does an EKG 12-lead impression: non-specific st t wave abnormality mean? I I just need to know what this test result means.
A: A "nonspecific" abnormality means that the wave doesn't look like the typical, standard ekg. The st-t wave is the wave that occurs right after the qrs. Often times the wave doesn't look typical, but it is important to note if prior ekg's have appeared the same for the patient. Also, some medications can cause these changes.
What should p waves look like in lead v1? What does it mean if different on some EKG? One will show completely positive, one fully negative, another biph
There can be a lot: Of normal variability to the p-wave morphology in V1. More so in women. In general a biphasic or mostly upright p wave is usual. Certainly you could have an ectopic atrial activation in which case the morphology would be altered. Physical positioning (sitting, lying or at 30 degrees) for the EKG will also make a difference. Lead position too. Regardless it is usually of no clinical significance.
I had my first ten lead ekg yesterday. Machine says old anteroseptal mi. 52 year old female. No history. Neg family history. Thoughts?
ECG: The ECG like most tests has false positives. Discuss with your doc, if indicated additional workup is possible
T wave becomes inverted Lead III, II, aVF after exercise? Leads v2-3 variable with each ekg I get. Sitting down when taken
See cardiologist: Could have trouble with heart get it checked by cardiologist
Well: I'm electrocardiogram there are usually changes that reflect haven't had a heart attack or myocardial infarction. However electrical abnormalities in the conduction system of the heart can't look like a heart attack or infarct. Also some infarcts do not show up on the EKG. Most the time the EKG is abnormal and shows a prior heart attack or while you're having a heart attack itshows the acute changes of a heart attack but it's not 100%
It can: A complete ECG is all 12 leads. Having said that a 3 lead ECG can give suspicion to prior injury or infarct, but not confirm for as confidently. Also matters which 3 leads are being traced, contiguous or not so that it would be more or less accurate if it made an anatomic sense.
Ecg: flat t wave. Echo: ef 60%. Basis on this diagnosis is ischemia. Being asked to undergo stent placement? Should go for it or not?
Need more info...: Would need to know your symptoms and the results of a stress test to clarify better. You are right to ask questions. Except in extreme emergencies, one can always ask for a second opinion
Cardiology. Wat relarevance dose a Q Wave have on lead 3 of an EKG. Where dose intrascapula fit is this part of another condition? And affects the heart
None.: It is not uncommon for young adults to have Q waves. These are normal and are the first activation of the bottom of the heart, between the main pumping chambers, called the interventricular septum. After that, it splits into Left and Right sides but that first Q wave is picked up as the initial beat of the ventricles before spreading out into the main heart muscles that make the main Signal.
Anyone identify these premature beats as PACS or PVCS? Labeled under june 5th in my health files is the 1 lead EKG. Thanks
Yes: Differentiation between PACs and PVCs is usually quite straightforward if the ECG can be seen, even just one lead.
Meaning of the diagnosis from an EKG, 12 Lead, Initial: Sinus bradycardia, Low voltage QRS, Possible Septal and Inferior infarcts, age undetermined.
3 things: Sinus bradycardia means the heart rate is less than 60 Low voltage QRS could be associated with many things, including obesity, emphysema, lung disease, pericardial effusion, infiltrative cardiomyopathy, etc Possible septal and inferior infarcts age undetermined: there is some evidence of possible heart attacks on the septal and inferior walls of the heart, and cannot determine the age of events
Need a sample ekg. Normal and increased heart rate one (like after exercising) to see which intervals do or don't increase. I have already looked online for samples but they are mostly of 12 lead ekgs. I only need a basic 3 lead sample for each. Thanks.
The: The university of utah has a nice site that includes many examples of both rhythm strips and 12-lead ecgs.
Survivor of widowmaker heart attack. Recent EKG presented with nsr with abnormal q segment. What does this mean, can it lead to future heart attack?
EKG from old mi: Q waves emanate from changes of old infarct. Likely stable - compare with post infarct ekg to be sure.See 1 more doctor answer
I have my 12 lead EKG result showing sinus rhythm with sinus arrhythmia and non specific t wave change. My qrs is 112ms and qt 586ms with 85 beat/sec.?
