Does Having A Normal Ekg Rule Out Myocarditis
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
I'm a 49 incomplete. Ekg said normal sinus rhythm can not rule out anterior infarct, age undetetermined abnormal ecg. I've had myocarditis. Worry?
Discuss with: Your cardiologist. If you are seeing this automated interpretation at the top of your ekg keep in mind it is not always accurate and will still need interpretation by a physician. ...Read more
Can a normal ecg, bloodwork and X-ray rule out myocarditis? ecgs show only episodes of sinus tachy w/ normal resting rate.
Potentially you: could have a normal EKG early or very late in the progress of the inflammatory response. It is unlikely though and I would anticipate some not subtle changes. ...Read more
Are extra beats normal after myocarditis. ECHO and ECG are normal. Started during myocarditis, have them during exercise. Myo. was year ago. ?
Arrhythmia: This depends upon the nature and frequency of the extra beats and it might be necessary to have a 24 hour cardiac monitor placed on you to define these. May be entirely benign but cannot tell without further info. ...Read more
Had inverted t waves on ecg 3 wks ago normal troponin scared I could have myocarditis? would I know by now plz respond
Got acute myocarditis spring2013, autumn2013 normal echo & ecg. What is long-term prognosis? Should I got MRI to know for sure?
Myocarditis: Can have several appearances on ecg. It can look like an acute heart attack, it can also have low voltage because of the inflammation causing a decrease in electrical transmission. It can have diffuse st depression; there is not one consistent pattern for myocarditis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
With diarrhea, fever, chest pain, EKG ok, echo ok, prescription ok, troponin 300..Myocarditis confirmed?
No: With massive troponin elevation (300!), you have to rule out coronary occlusion (thrombosis/dissection/embolism) - need coronary angiography to rule that out. Cardiac MRI is sometimes suggestive of myocarditis, but most cardiologists would still need a coronary angiogram to rule out coronary abnormalities. ...Read more
Often it does ..: Typically there ARE changes on the electrocardiogram in myocarditis: diffuse T wave inversions and saddle-shaped ST segment elevations. Other common blood tests including C-reactive protein, sed rate, & myocardial damage markers may be positive. The only 100% accurate diagnostic test of myocarditis is a myocardial biopsy--biopsy of the heart lining and muscle done via angiography. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Typically, there in patients with myocarditis, there are abnormalities on both ECG and echocardiogram. In fact, if both the ECG and the echocardiogram were normal, the likelihood of myocarditis would be very low. Typical ECG findings are st and t wave changes, and perhaps low amplitude qrs complexes. Echocardiographic findings are decrease ventricular function and perhaps pericardial effusion. ...Read more
Is ECG and blood work sufficient enough workup for chest pain with other symptoms of virus. Suggesting myocarditis?
Depends: If the findings on ecg, and blood tests are normal and there is confirmation of viral infection, it is likely enough. ...Read more
Had ECG and blood work 2 days into virsl illness.Now heart racing and skipping lots. 3 days later is myocarditis still possible?
Relax ;): Myocarditis is an unusual presentation of a viral illness. For arrythmias, skipped beats to be a presentation of myocarditis is possible, you would most likely be far sicker than you are with a depressed cardiac function, and feeling very fatigued. Having occasional PVC (Premature Ventricular contraction) during viral infections is a relatively common picture. Relax ;) ...Read more
