Ecg Online Test
Cardiac MRI, CTPA, EGC 's, echo's, Chest X-rays, PET scan, blood tests, ECG stress test. All these tests, no diagnosis. Could something been missed?
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
Change w/exercise : When excercised, or 'stressed', the heart needs more oxegen to function properly than at rest. If it's not getting that increase, the muscle will start to move in abnormal ways, which will show up on the echo. At rest, because it needs less oxegen, it may be getting enough, so it will look normal then. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My stress test results read " positive exercise stress test for ischemia by EKG criteria. What does that mean?
This means that the: EKG portion of your stress test had changes in the waveforms that have been known to be associated with blockages of the coronary arteries. Unfortunately, greater than 15% of the time this is inaccurate in women. Less than 5% of the time in men. This is why we always do stress testing in women along with nuclear imaging. If the nuclear imaging is negative then the EKG changes are FALSE positive. ...Read more

M37.Have low HDL/high TriG.Did tests, results ok.ABI, EKG, Chest XRay, UltraSound Carotid+whole abdomen,Echo Treadmill Stress. repeat tests how often?
Family history?: much of this hinges I feel on your family history. If you have parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or siblings with coronary artery disease under the age of 55 then I repeat testing in 5 years, otherwise probably in 10 years. There is no consensus on this: therefore this is my own opinion as interventional cardiologist. ...Read more

Ecg report measurement results are ECG measurement results- qrs 100ms qt/qtcb 366/417ms pr 138 MS p 104ms, what does this mean?
Normal values: That is a list of standard intervals and segments measured as a part an ECG. Those numbers look pretty normal, of course there is much more to the ECG than just those standard measurements, things like rate, rhythm, axis, ST/T wave abnormalities, q waves etc. ...Read more
For what?: These tests provide different information and have different indications. Stress tests are to look for evidence to support a diagnosis of symptomatic blocked coronary arteries. Holtor is used to evaluate for dysthymia. Echocardiogram is useful to look at the heart valves and other features. Choosing the right test depends on what symptoms you are having. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal D-Dimer lab, cardiac echo shows mild RCA blockage , physican ordered a nuclear stress test . I am a Paramedic ,can you code with a stress test?
Unlikely: The long answer is that you have a stressful job and you are frequently in situations that cause emotional and physical stress. You should be fine. They will be monitoring you during the test. Also, if the test were that risky, we would not do it so often. Even if you do code. You will be on a monitor in a medical facility with the ability to resuscitate. ...Read more
Chest Ct scan with trast,stress echo,3d echicardiogram,cardiac MRI with contrast & Ekg and blood test would this rule out CHD all normal?Done at mayo.
naat test not done in kolkata(india).Suggest me some test name available for c.Trach & n.Gonorrhea detection from urine sample.
Bloodwork, xray, ekg, echo, stress test, 24hr holter. Had all these tests done and only benign arrhythmia. Does anxiety sound right? Or possible chd?
Not CHD: Missing information is what symptom prompted this extensive work-up in the first place. Assuming palpitations was the reason, the first thing to do is to better define this. Keep a log. Take your pulse every time. Record how fast, how often, how long it lasts and what happens when it stops (sudden or slows down). The answers to these questions will provide more information to start than the tests. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Holter monitor test showed 2200 out of 105000 beats PVC 2%, cholesterol 123. Dr. Said that is amazing.Why need for echo stress test.No sympt. For 3wks?
VPCs: Vpcs can be no big deal or sometimes they are a big deal. Generally an otherwise well person with no known cardiac abnormality doesn't need to worry. In some people hormonal states like early diabetes or pcos can cause frequent vpcs. Your dr. Probably wants to make sure there is no cardiac abnormality causing your vpcs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

17 yr old palpitations... ECG, echo and stress test did not show any abnormalities. Does this rule out HCM, ARVD etc?. P.S Now doing holter monitor...
You're good: Glad you got to read up. The hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and ARVD are ruled out by a competent echo. Lots of folks have palpitations -- catch a run on Holter and you will know the type. If you do not get short of breath, and there are five or fewer per minute, they are usually harmless. Taking up hard-core aerobic fitness can help this and make you happier in the process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
