My ECG showed repolirisation abnormalities in lead v5 and v6 the t wave was more flat or something is this bad? I'm 23.
Non-specific: What you're describing is rather non-specific, that is, you'd have to combine the EKG findings with a thorough history and physical examination by your primary physician. They may want to, then, refer you to a cardiologist or cardiac electrophysiologist to see if the findings are significant. Call 911 if you pass out, have chest pain, severe dizziness, or sudden onset shortness of breath. ...Read more
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
Hard to say...: Without looking at them. It could just be that the normal location of the ECG leads may have been switched around -- what we call "limb-lead reversal". They should be looked at by a cardiologist to be sure. ...Read more
Yes, it can: Some patients are not symptomatic, and yet can have abnormalities in heart rhythm, such as atrial fibrillation or pvcs. Often times, an event monitor or holter monitor can be helpful in identifying episodes over a longer period of time and correlating with symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
I went to the ER with chest pains, an ECG showed no abnormalities. A doctor listened to my lungs with a stethascope, would this exam have highlighted pneumothorax? The pain is now in my mid back.
Not your Heart: You have anxiety, panic, stress or all of the above. You did not need to go to the er. Heart troubles have a myriad of symptoms in a male. Yes, the exam, and vitals would have also ruled out a pneumothorax. Now. Lets deal with the underlying real problem which is that at 28 you are not managing your stress well. You are carrying it all in your chest and your chest muslces are tired or fatigued. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Medical Diagnostics: This is simply that the t waves seen on this ECG were not normal but they were also not diagnostic of any condition. Ekgs have specific changes that correlate with specific and commonly seen cardiac damage. This is just a way of saying there is nothing here that explains any disease. It is not to be worried over. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How can a ECG go from normal ECG sinus rhythm to unspecified t wave abnormalities within a few hours?
T waves: Non specific T waves often occur on movement of the leads and are of no significance. It is also possible that they were so minimal that they were not reported in the reading of the first E.K.G. ...Read more
