Ecg 12 Lead
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
Have suffered from palpitations for 12 years. Echoes, holter, blood work normal, EKG shows LAFB. Can these palpitations become dangerous ?
Diagnosis 2/8 from 11/12 stress test. Fixed inferolateral apical defect, myocardial infarct, 2 month a-fib/electric shock. Do i need a cardiac cath?
ECG: It stands for electrocardiogram. It is used to measure the movement of electrical signals in the heart. When working appropriately, this enables your heart to beat and pump blood to the rest of the body. When the heart is damaged or the electrical system is malfunctioning, ECG can pick up changes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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?

You are above 3 times normal. Reduce or stop. call your PCP re liver failure ...Read more
If i had hyperkalemia wouldn't it show peaked t waves throughout entire 12 lead EKG with widened qrs?
EKG 12 lead. Sinus Tachycardia. inferior - posterior infarct. Age undetermined. Abnormal ECG. When compared with previous ECG of 24 July 2015. Vent. rate has increased by 36 BPM. Inferior-Posterior infarct is Now Present. WHAT can you tell here?
Ecg: A stress test and/or heart catheterization give much better information than an ECG. A cardiologist needs to review your ECG as well. 37 yrs old is young to have heart disease as well. I need to see your ecg to say much more, and I am happy to do a consult with you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

ECG 12 leads: Normal sinus rhythm,Possible Left atrial enlargement,Inferior infarct,ACUTE MI / STEMI, Abnormal ECG
When compared with ECG of 30-MAR-2015 ST elevation now present in Inferior leads. BUT troponins are ok. Is it heart attack?
Repeat EKG: Computer interpretation is often wrong, not surprisingly. If no chest pain and cardiac enzymes are normal-likely, it's not a heart attack. There are several other causes of ST segment elevation besides a heart attack. I would repeat EKG and have it interpret from your cardiologist. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can frequent atrial ectopics ( 12063 beats, holter moniter ) cause problems ? Angiogram 3 years ago all clear.
Yes, it's a problem: Assuming you have a normal heart rate, your APCs are >10% of your total heart beats. That can cause your heart muscle to weaken and increases your risk of atrial fibrillation. You need a full evaluation for any treatable cause and your heart rate should be assessed to be sure it's well controlled to avoid injury. Is your sleep apnea treated? CPAP may help your arrhythmia if you haven't tried it. ...Read more
It can give clues: Heart failure is a complicated diagnosis to make and is usually based on history and physical exam findings. An ekg may give clues that point towards a diagnosis of heart failure but can not fully diagnose it. You may be confusing the term heart failure with heart disease. Ask you doctor about further specifics. ...Read more
