Hi,can i send YOU my ecg?

Hi,can i send YOU my ecg?

Upload it: Ask tech support to help you upload it. Why at age 19 did you have to have an ECG. If you were having chest pains get a 2D ECHO FOR MITRAL PROLAPSE. Suggest trying magnesium 400 to 600 mg a day and Fish Oil 1000 mg 2x a day with meals ...Read more

Electrocardiogram (Definition)

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

What are common causes of an abnormal ECG?

ECG: There are a myriad of causes of abnormal ECG tracings. Any cardiac abnormality that is signficant will usually cause some change in the ECG. Changes in blood chemistries can alter the ECG, high blood pressure, heart attack, lung diseases and a long list including things that really don't mean much but change the appearance of the ECG recording... ...Read more

What does rsr' in v1 or v2 mean on an ecg?

What does rsr' in v1 or v2 mean on an ecg?

Likely normal: Rsr', pronounced 'r s r-prime' can be a normal finding in leads v1 and v2. This pattern is often found in young healthy people. An rsr' with widening of the qrs and characteristic findings in other leads is due to a right bundle branch block. This is when the electrical pathway to the right ventricle is slower than the pathway to the left venricle (typically several milliseconds). ...Read more

What does rsr stand for if in v1 or v2 on ecg?

Right Bundle: It's ekg notation for the shape of the waveform, and it means there's either block or delay in one of the heart's 3 "wires" (they're not really wires) that conduct the electrical impulse to the lower chambers. It does not, generally, mean increased risk of death or problems unless other circumstances are present. ...Read more

Can you tell me in ECG interp. can someone tell me what ivr is exactly?

Can you tell me in ECG interp. can someone tell me what ivr is exactly?

IVR?: Do you have that right? It's usually abbreviated "AIVR" and stands for "accelerated idioventricular rhythm." The ventricles have an intrinsic rhythm of about 30-35 that is normally suppressed by supraventricular conduction. If there is AV dissociation, the ventricles can beat at their own rate or IVR. More often, the rate is about a 100 so it's called an "accelerated idioventricular rhythm." ...Read more
