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

These can manifest as palpitations, rapid heart rate, or even near-fainting symptoms. Lab tests can evaluate whether you have too much synthroid (thyroxine). ...Read more

Will Autonomic Function Testing also show any possibly heart abnormalities? Can ANS dys. Cause abnormal EKG in otherwise health heart? Connected?

Flipped T wave in lead 3, no other abnormalities. ECG was done due to palpitations, increased HR, and lightheadedness. Normal echo. Is this okay?
Flipped T in III: Normal variant. Would check tilt test to see if heart rate increases when tilted , as you may have POTS postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome Also check TSH/T4 , check for H pylori if any abdominal discomfort, and less commonly consider ANA, sed rate, DS DNA and ACE metanephrines and 5HIAA., if all else negative ...Read more
