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

ECG : We measure many kinds of things on ECG . Borderline findings generally are of little significance. You should ask your doc whether yours have any meaning or are no problem. ...Read more

Ekg says possible infarct infarct. Inferior lateral t changes. Cardio says normal? What's wrong? P 84 qrs 86 pr 148 qt 358 qtc 407 qt disp 34

Trust the cardio: An 12 lead EKG may initially be read by the machine given certain predetermined parameters that are set. It is not always accurate. There may be artifact obscuring the reading. Also the EKG needs to be completed to an older EKG to verify changes. If read by a cardiologist as normal then trust that reading. ...Read more

Chest pains. Echo scan = septal hypokinesis. Hr 138 BP 138/90. Ambulance to a&e. Doc says possible pericarditis. A&e says muscular skelelightous.

Chest pains. Echo scan = septal hypokinesis. Hr 138 BP 138/90. Ambulance to a&e. Doc says possible pericarditis. A&e says muscular skelelightous.

Pericarditis or not?: Pericarditis should not result in septal hypokinesis by echo. You may have myopericarditis (involvement of the heart muscle and the coverings of the heart), or a false-positive finding by echo (sometimes it looks like hypokinesis but it is actually not). Pulse rate is high but does happen with chest pain or discomfort. Your age makes coronary (heart disease) unlikely. You need to see a heart doc! ...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

Ecg report measurement results are ECG measurement results- qrs 100ms qt/qtcb 366/417ms pr 138 MS p 104ms, what does this mean?

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

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

See below: Your atrial septal defect and atrial septal aneurysm are sufficient to account for a RAD. You need to ask the echo reader to quantitate the amount of left to right shunting that is present. If significant. the ASD should be closed. The other parameters of your EKG are normal. ...Read more

Concern? Abnormal ECG "Cannot rule out Inferior infarct , age undet". Normal nuc stress echo. Rapid HB, VT, some chest pain, dizzy exercise, no blocks

The EKG is most: likely over diagnosed by a computer algorithm designed to produce a diagnosis if anything is even a little bit off. It takes a human with years of experience to be able to determine if the findings are clinically relevant or significant. With a normal nuclear stress and echo it is unlikely you have had an infarct. Discuss your concerns with your health care provider for further reassurance. ...Read more

Vent rat 66bpm, pr int 141 ms, qrs dur 89ms, qt/qtc 415/429 ms, p-r-t axes 65 29 37, qtcb 437 ms, atypical ECG low qrs voltage. What does the ECG mea?

Abnormal ECG: The major finding is low voltage. Causes of low voltage include: pericardial effusion, pleural effusion, overweight, emphysema, pneumothorax, contrictive pericarditidis, previous massive mi, end-stage dilated cardiomyopathy, infiltrative myocardial diseases — i.e. Restrictive cardiomyopathy due to amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, haemochromatosis; scleroderma, myxoedema (severe low thyroid hormone). ...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

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

Unspecific septal Hypokinesis on a scintigraphy can be false-pos? All other exams (echo, stress, holter, ekg) came normal. I'm 22yo w/ chest pains.

All other exams  (echo, stress,  holter, ekg) came normal. I'm 22yo w/ chest pains.

Septm somewhat Hypo: Septum is common wall to RT&LFT ventricle. In sinus rhythm (Holter nl) both Rt&Left Ventricle beat ess at same time. Sept moves sltly towards left, but mostlty THICKENS. The other walls more towards septum. More Import is LVEF (Eject Frction). No study perfect. Nl for scintigraphy is LVEF>50% (55%. Many beats averaged in both. All Sept R sl. hypo. ...Read more
