Ecg Chest Leads
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
Atypical ecg? Is says sinus rhythm and low qrs voltage in chest leads (qrs deflection <1.0 mv in chest leads) what does that mean?
Ecg w marked sinus bradycardia. Septal infarct age undetermined. Abnormal ecg. Heart murmur w left valve leakage. History of chest pain. Is this bad?
Yes, by tracing only: It is an abnormal ekg by reading of the tracing but what is most important is the ekg in relation to a good history and clinical exam. Questions to ask: do you have a past history of heart disease, high BP, diabetes, smoking? Do you have chest pain/jaw pain/pain down L arm? Is your BP high on exam? Any of these findings along with the above ekg is a MAJOR concern. Please talk with your doctor!! ...Read more

Chest pain not from : Chest pain possibly from ASHD or blocked coronary arteries. What showed possible old heart attack if this was an ekg this is not that accurate. If it was and echocardiogram or cardiac sonogram that showed prior heart muscle damage that is probable accurate. Cardiac cath should tell you if you have blocked arteries and how significant they are. If borderline blockages are found a wire can be passed. ...Read more

Consultation with a psychiatrist for stress management therapy is recommended as treatment for chronic anxiety state. Medication may also be prescribed for a short period. ...Read more
Severe SOB, chestpain, sudden paralaysis in legs/arms, high/weak heartrate, bloating, barrel chest, nail clubbing. Normal spirometry, ecg, echo.
Severe SOB: and chest pain are very serious symptoms. Basic in diagnoisi is doing a Chest X ray, Oxygen Sat. and Blood tests and CT scan of the chest (if xray is equivocal or negative). Since the ECG and Echo are normnal, I think we are faced with a Respiratory disorder. Please see a pulmonologist. ...Read more

Ecg says low qrs voltage and low qrs voltage in precordial leads? history of chest pain,pvs tachy. what is this caused from? worried....
ECG EKG: The electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) is a very commonly done heart test. Electrodes on the chest, arms & legs show the electrical activity of the heart. Preliminary interpretation of the test may be done by the computer, then read by a cardiologist. EKGs have to be considered in context of the history & other findings.
