Ecg Rhythm Practice
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.
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
Ecg: Not enough information here, ask your Dr. what is wrong and what you need to do about it. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
My ECG report says 'sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the right. what does that mean exactly ?
Nothing: It is a description of the ectrical orientation of the hearts excitation and by in itself means nothing . ...Read more
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
ECG report shows RSR in v1 and V2......qrs area positive in v2, otherwise normal ecg with sinus rhythm. Do I need to worry.
No: need to worry it is rbbb it is innocuous unless u have other ht conditions. ...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 ?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
Normal: Essentially a normal findingGet a more detailed answer ›
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 .
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could use your help docs! my ECG report says 'sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the right. What does it mean ?
ECG: Shifted transition zone has little significance, ask your doctor how he thinks it pertains to you. ...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 .
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
