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

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

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what to do?

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

Heart echo echo ekg holter and 1month event monitor normal.Having skipped beats and chest tightness.whats causing it.Skipped beats notrecoded on event?

Heart echo echo ekg holter and 1month event monitor normal.Having skipped beats and chest tightness.whats causing it.Skipped beats notrecoded on event?

Ask details.: Were there isolate atrial or ventricular premature beats on the Holter. Even if there were, if they are infrequent and if a stress-echo test was normal, it sounds as though everything indicates nothing serious. Simply continue to monitor symptoms and, if symptoms worsen, repeat monitoring. ...Read more

Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Depends: Sinus bradycardia can be normal in a fit individual. Septal infarct age undetermined may also be a normal variant, but also possibly indicate previous injury to the heart. You might want to consider getting further evaluation, such as a stress treadmill ECG test. Depending on various associated healthy issues, this might need to be combined with imaging (nuclear or ultrasonography). ...Read more

INTERPRETATION
ABNORMAL STRESS ECHOCARDIOGRAM
INFERIOR WALL HYPOKINESIS WITH STRESS?

Abnormal stress test: Stress induced wall motion abnormality is concerning for significant narrowing of the coronary artery which feeds the inferior wall of the heart. This is most commonly the right coronary artery. ...Read more

Echo cardiograph report! 10 points!?

Echo cardiograph report! 10 points!?

Echocardiography: What is the question? Echo is noninvasive ultrasound study of the heart. It tells us about the heart valves, chamber sizes, any clots, vegetations, tumors, septal thickening, wall motion, function of the ventricles( heart failure). Also special studies can detect septal defects. ...Read more

Sinus Rhythm Low voltage in precordial leads. -Old anterior infarct. ABNORMAL ekg?

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

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

Fast heart rate. EKG ultrasound chest X-Ray bloodwork all normal. ?

Fast heart rate. EKG ultrasound chest X-Ray bloodwork all normal. ?

What is fast: tachycardia is a fast heart rate and is defined as a resting heart rate greater than 100. If your thyroid level is normal, then it is just the way you are. your doctor will consider if doing anything abot it is indicated or not and that will depend on your needs and values. In some cases a medicaion called a beta blocker is prescribed because it is helpful in some patients. ...Read more

Does an holter montior detect cardiac arrythmias?

Does an holter montior detect cardiac arrythmias?

Holter monitor: Yes, but even better are monitors that you can wear for 2 - 4 weeks as they may pick up arrhythmias that may not show in a 24hr holter. ...Read more

Is an upright P wave V1 and inverted P wave aVL with tachycardia indicative of ectopic rhythm? other ekg shows biphasic P wave V1, upright P wave aVL

Is an upright P wave V1 and inverted P wave aVL with tachycardia indicative of ectopic rhythm? other ekg shows biphasic P wave V1, upright P wave aVL

If the tachycardia: is occurring at rest with changes in the P wave morphology then it might be an ectopic atrial tachycardia. If it is occurring during exercise it is not diagnostic and may still be a normal sinus mechanism. ...Read more

Here's what my dad ECG report says..SINUS RYTHM LEFT, ARIAL ABNORMALITY, LVH WITH REPOLARIZATION ABNORMALITY, PROLONGED QT INTERVAL..please interpret?

Must see : It's not possible to "interpret" an ECG without seeing it. These reports suggest the possibility that high blood pressure has effected the heart, making it thicker, but again I am only speaking in general terms having not looked at the ECG myself. ...Read more

No need to worry....: Findings appear benign. You do not have any structural heart disease or coronary artery disease and have benign electrical findings based upon the information provided. However discuss with your cardiologist. ...Read more
