An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen ...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?
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
M37.Have low HDL/high TriG.Did tests, results ok.ABI, EKG, Chest XRay, UltraSound Carotid+whole abdomen,Echo Treadmill Stress. repeat tests how often?
Family history?: much of this hinges I feel on your family history. If you have parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or siblings with coronary artery disease under the age of 55 then I repeat testing in 5 years, otherwise probably in 10 years. There is no consensus on this: therefore this is my own opinion as interventional cardiologist. ...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
Dr. could hear a murmur- did EKG showed shortened pr interval, echo showed trace mitral, tricuspid & pulmonic insuffiency everything else normal?
Echo unremarkable: Trace insufficiency is common and typically is an incidental finding. If you are not symptomatic then I would not be concerned. The short PR can be normal, and also is typically not an issue unless you are having fast heart rates or the ECG showed risk for a fast heart rate. ...Read more
Neg echo stress, neg ekg. Holter monitor results 1,000 PACS Dr says benign. Worried about a blockage. Do I need an angio MRI? Very stressed
Relax: Stress is bad for your heart. Negative EKG is reassuring but does not have predictive value for future events. A negative stress echo is a good indication of low risk of heart attack in next several years. No test is 100%. Consider your risk factors for heart disease. If you remain concerned you should seek a second opinion. PACs are usually benign, but can be very distressing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
A lot : The electrocardiograph is one of the oldest tools used in the evaluation of the electrical and structural aspects of your hearts function. It is one of the primary tools used in the early management of acute heart attacks. It is simple, elegant and cost effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Recent Echo Result did not include Ejection Fraction? Although Cardiologist said very reasured with all results with mean trans gradient 8mmHg Agree?
Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global.Is my heart ok?
More info needed: I am assuming echo is showing pericardial effusion and global? Or maybe global hypohypokinesia? Any wall motion abnormalities? Ejection fraction? Do u have any symptoms? At rest or with activities? Any other risk factors? Smoker, overweight, dm, htn, high chol, family history heart attacks, sedentary life etc. Any prior heart attacks? Stress test done. Any recent viral infection? Pericarditis? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Took an echo that showed normal lv size with concentric remodeling. Normal functioning valves. However my ecg shows potential lvh?
Congruent findings: If ECG mentions possible or potential LVH and then echocardiogram shows "concentric remodeling", probably "concentric LVH", these findings make sense. ECG is not the modality to diagnose LVH, echocardiogram is. Last if these are your findings, treat the underlying cause which is high blood pressure, to prevent long term risk of hypertensive heart disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had nuclear stress study done & interpretation states: Sm reversible ischemia, inferior wall. Ejection fraction 51%. is heart cath needed?
Echocardiogram results. Mildly thick mitral valve. Tricuspid valve structurally normal but, shows trace of regurgitation. ?
Normal is normal: You can't do better then normal. Echo is a simple anatomical test. As long as the quality was good and the interpreting doctor knew what there are doing, u should be ok. If clinical suspicion for disease is high, then u should get a complete echo in a certified echo facility. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
