Ekg 10 Lead Placement
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
Flipped T wave in lead 3, no other abnormalities. ECG was done due to palpitations, increased HR, and lightheadedness. Normal echo. Is this okay?
Flipped T in III: Normal variant. Would check tilt test to see if heart rate increases when tilted , as you may have POTS postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome Also check TSH/T4 , check for H pylori if any abdominal discomfort, and less commonly consider ANA, sed rate, DS DNA and ACE metanephrines and 5HIAA., if all else negative ...Read more
I've had 4 ekgs, 2 stress, 6 holters, mri, cat 4 echos. Are these enough test see if structrallu normal? What could be causing multifocal pvcs?
Too many: I hope that all these tests were not ordered by the same physician, at least not within a short time. The repeated tests you list, if all normal, are more than enough to definitively exclude structural heart disease. "multifocal pvcs", in-and-of-themselves, are not life - threatening. They need treatment only if they cause troubling symptoms, or if there is underlying heart disease. See an ep doc. ...Read more
Echo 2 mos ago, results = LA dilated, mild functional mr and trivial functional tr.holter result sinus rhythm, PVC seen 32.7%. Now discomfort jawline?
See your doctor: To assess whether the pain in your jaw line is related to your heart you will need a stress test. This is especially the case if that jaw discomfit occurs with exertion. The echo cardio gram will not necessarily give you information about your arteries, especially if these new symptoms. Good luck to you! ...Read more
I've had open heart surgery about 8 years ago, aneurism repair and metal aortic valve replacement. INR is 2.1(low),I wake up with blood in mouth, dark?
Contact your MD: Based on your health history and that fact that you have INR testing, you are likely taking warfarin or a different blood thinner in which case you should contact your doctor and let them know you are experiencing bleeding. It may also be a good idea to contact a dentist as it is not normal for your mouth to be bleeding and there may be an underlying teeth or gum problem causing this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
43 y/o s/p hyst x 10 yrs. ovaries intact. Severe nighttime sweating. Estrogen level per lab was 904. ???
FSH & TSH levels?: Estrogen levels can be very misleading as estrogen is made in the ovaries, peripheral fat and adrenal glands and unless broken down into its' components of origin can miss the menopause picture. An FSH level can at least give your MD an idea that the ovaries may no longer be responding to produce estrogen in amounts that keep the "hot flashes" at bay. Also make sure your TSH(thyroid) is normal. ...Read more

Would echo,ekg,stress test,xray,bloodwork rule out any arrhythmia problem such as premature ventricular contraction and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation?
No: Occasional PVCs are normal. Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation by definition is only present some of the time and the tests you list could easily miss this if done while the heart is in normal rhythm. Diagnosis of intermittent arrhythmias can be difficult and frequently requires consultation with a cardiologist subspecialized in electrophysiology, Holter monitor test is frequently used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Possibly: Most first trimester miscarriages are due to fetal malformations or chromosome abnormalities. Classic APAS related are often second trimester or associated with other problems like infertility. But if no explanation otherwise for fetal loss, thrombophilia tests like for antiphospholipid antibody are reasonable. ...Read more
