Can you explain the different components of ECG report?

Can you explain the different components of ECG report?

A lot!: For a cardiologist, an EKG can give information about the rate, the rhythm, whether there are signs of a congenital abnormality, signs of a heart attach or blocked artery, the thickness of the heart muscle, previous heart attack, and more. In experienced hands, an EKG can tell an incredible amount of information. ...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

Can you tell me how to tell if I have normal ECG readings for a 25 year old man?

Can you tell me how to tell if I have normal ECG readings for a 25 year old man?

ECG: To tell if you have normal ECG readings, you have to have an ECG performed and then ask or obtain the results of the test. If the results are normal, then you have a normal ecg. ...Read more

What ECG readings are normal for a 25 year old man?

What ECG readings are normal for a 25 year old man?

Many possibilities: the most normal reading would be NSR, normal sinus rhythm. Not uncommon to see sinus bradycardia, sinus arrhythmia and short PR interval in young healthy people to name a few. Do you have a specific reading you have a question about? ...Read more

What does repolarization mean for an ECG reading?

What does repolarization mean for an ECG reading?

ECG: The ECG shows recording during depolarization and in repolarization of the heart. These are the two electrophysiologic changes that generate the ECG on the cellular level. ...Read more

Can ECG detect ischemia?how accurate is it?Her Dr. Did not explained to her what type of ischemia it is because she doenst have any symptoms.

Can ECG detect ischemia?how accurate is it?Her Dr. Did not explained to her what type of ischemia it is because she doenst have any symptoms.

ECG: There are typical ECG changes associated with ischemia. When correlated with an appropriate symptom scenario these changes are highly accurate for the presence of ischemia. In a random situation those changes are less specific for ischemia. ...Read more

On ECG readings what does occasional premature ectopic complexes mean, a rightward axis, a short pr, and low voltage qrs?

Pre-excitation?: There is a short delay between the times the upper chambers (atria) contract and the lower chambers (ventricles). The two events are seen on the ekg as the p and r waves. If that is shorter than 120 msec, that can mean an accessory pathway that is bypassing the normal conduction system and cause "pre-excitation". Look up WPW or lgl syndrome. See an electrophysiologist about possible ablation. ...Read more

What do you advise if i want help reading my sons ECG results.Pr interval is 122, qrs duration 108, qt/qtc 454/454, p-r-t axes 34, -?

What do you advise if i want help reading my sons ECG results.Pr interval is 122, qrs duration 108, qt/qtc 454/454, p-r-t axes 34, -?

Could be normal: The values you mention are not necsssarily a problem. You do need someone with expertise to look over the tracing however to make sure there are no other problems or abnormalities. ...Read more

I am male, 29, no health issue, but scared by reading stories of adults suffering from MI, I did ecg echo and ETT, all normal, but still i am scared,?

MI: With a normal ecg, echo and ETT at 29y/o you have little to worry about in the next few years. You should get yourself on a good exercise, diet and attention to health program. At least half hour a day of aerobic exercise, Mediterranean diet, don't smoke and take care of any risk factors you have. If you need it, get counselling for your fears, but better to channel the fear into constructive step ...Read more
