Ecg says regular rhythm with P wave difficult to define. What does that mean. Had an Ecg dx me with supravent tachy too. Workup last year was good.

Ecg says regular rhythm with P wave difficult to define. What does that mean. Had an Ecg dx me with supravent tachy too. Workup last year was good.

ECG: that wording suggests that p waves were difficult to see on the tracing. It could mean they were there but could also mean maybe they weren't. They are there in normal sinus rhythm. ...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

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

Possible hemiblock: An abnormal right axis plus minimally prolonged qrs duration defines what is termed a left posterior hemiblock (block of the posteroinferior fascicle of the left branch of the bundle of his). An abnormal right axis can also occur in conditions with elevated right heart pressure and resultant right ventricular enlargement. Normal sinus rhythm means no rhythm disturbance. ...Read more

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

Borderline ECG, These Minor Changes are of Equivocal Significance only. Sinus Rhythm T wave changes in anterior leads.

Borderline ECG,  These Minor Changes are of Equivocal Significance only.  Sinus Rhythm   T wave changes in anterior leads.

Borderline ECG: I am not certain of the circumstances leading to your having an ECG. T wave changes in anterior leads could be a sign of underlying atherosclerotic heart disease. Risk factors for this include high Blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and 1st degree female relative with heart attack before 60 or 1st degree male relative with heart attack before 50. You need to see a physician ...Read more

What do you suggest if my ECG report says 'sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the right. what does it mean ?

What do you suggest if my ECG report says 'sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the right. what does it mean ?

Clockwise: It means that when you were born, your heart was rotated just a little tiny bit counter-clockwise in your chest. It has NO clinical significance. Doctors report it to prove that they were awake when they were reading EKGs. Forget it! ...Read more

I had an EKG done it came there sinus rhythm incomplete right bundle on branch block borderline ECG what does this mean is it serious?

Unremarkable: Incomplete right bundle branch can be a normal variant in 15% of the adult population. It does not carry any significance. Left bundle branch does. Further it refers to the conduction system of the heart, or electrical wiring of it so to speak, and it means your right ventricle gets a signal to pump few milliseconds after the left side. No worries. ...Read more

I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?

I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?

Cardiologist: These T wave abnormalities are nonspecific and it's important to compare them to any prior EKG if one is available. If none are available the findings may not necessarily be due to any cardiac pathology and may even be a normal variant in a young woman. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and examine you and recommend further testing like an echocardiogram if deemed advisable. ...Read more

What does sinus rhythm - borderline short pr interval mean on an ecg?

Usually nothing.: The pr interval, the time between the p wave (atria contract) and the qrs (ventricles contract) is typically between 0.12 and 0.20 seconds. If it is a bit shorter than 0.12 seconds but the ECG is otherwise normal, there is generally nothing to be concerned about. If you have episodes of heart racing, you should tell your doctor, as there may be a condition in which you are prone to fast rhythms. ...Read more

ECG: That is a common ECG reading which can indicate something is wrong but also can be as it says nonspecific and 'no big deal'. Ask your doctor if there is reason for concern or further investigation. ...Read more

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what does this mean?

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what does this mean?

Common reading: "abnormal" because there are non-specific changes which are not specific enough to meet a true diagnosis, but not normal enough to say normal, so somewhat of a soft call or indecisive read, but very common and does not necessarily mean anything. The bottom line, the ECG findings need to be placed in the clinical context in which it was taken, and compared to previous and subsequent ECGs. ...Read more

What is the significance of incomplete left bbb? My son is 32 years old ECG showed normal sinus rhythm BP is 135/71 .

What is the significance of incomplete left bbb? My son is 32 years old  ECG showed normal sinus rhythm BP is 135/71 .

Often very little: Incomplete left bundle branch block often means that there's delay rather than complete block in a portion of the heart's wiring. While this can progress to complete block in that portion of the wiring, that still leaves the right bundle unaffected. There are more complicated long-term issues to this, but those vastly exceed our 400-character limit here :). ...Read more

My ECG result says sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the left t abnormality in anterior leads. What is wrong with me?

Probably nothing: Unless you are having symptoms referable to your heart. If you do have symptoms then discussing this in relation to your ECG with your doctor would be wise. ...Read more

Hi; ECG test explaination ; Sinus Rhythm/ Spetal Infract , Q> 40ms in V2 / Q/R >1/3 in V2, P/PQ 112ms /157ms , QRS : 88MS /QT-QTc 361ms-369ms .

Hi; ECG test explaination ; Sinus Rhythm/ Spetal Infract , Q> 40ms in V2 / Q/R >1/3 in V2, P/PQ 112ms /157ms , QRS : 88MS /QT-QTc 361ms-369ms .

ECG: Q wave in V2 is concerning for a history of an anteroseptal myocardial infarction. The complicating factor is that if the ECG leads are misplaced or the heart is higher or lower than expected, it is possible that the Q wave is actually an S wave, which would not be of concern. The P/PQ would be a marker for conduction- should be <200ms. QRS should be <120, and QTC should be less than ~440ms. ...Read more
