Ekg Lead Placement Mnemonic
Yes: Yes, absolutely. Avr usually has inverted t-waves normally. If you invert left and right arm electrodes, avr becomes avl so now avl has inverted t waves (where as typically it does not). ...Read more
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 came back High Risk Operation.ST Elevation, consider early repolarization, pericarditis or injury. ST&T wave abnormal consider anterior ischemia?
Need further workup: Need to get evaluated for ischemic heart disease myocardial perfusion scan if done and called for this ischemia ,need to further evaluate with cardiac catheterization and or CTA of coronary vessels to clarify the abnormality especially if you are going for a surgical procedure ...Read more
Is Cardiac MRI, Cardiac CT, or ECHO... better for diagnosing structural heart diseases such as arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia?
Diagnosis 2/8 from 11/12 stress test. Fixed inferolateral apical defect, myocardial infarct, 2 month a-fib/electric shock. Do i need a cardiac cath?
Would cardiac mri & mra without contrast, ecg, 48hr ecg, echocardiogram, treadmill ecg rule out the majority of heart problems in 25 yr old?
ABSOLUTELY: This is more than enough testing and most insurers would NOT cover all these tests! Hope this helps ...... ...Read more
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
Low qrs voltage in limb leads [qrs deflection 0.5 mv in limb leads] atypical ecg.... Healthy 27 years old what does this mean?
Low voltage: Low voltage on an electrocardiogram (ECG) can be a sign of cardiomyopathy (weak heart muscle), pericardial effusion (fluid around the heart), obesity, lung disease. thyroid disease, and others. In most cases you would already know that you have these conditions. It is possible that technical issues with the ECG recording created an error. I would repeat the tracing. Glad to look at it for you. ...Read more
ECG 12 leads: Normal sinus rhythm,Possible Left atrial enlargement,Inferior infarct,ACUTE MI / STEMI, Abnormal ECG
When compared with ECG of 30-MAR-2015 ST elevation now present in Inferior leads. BUT troponins are ok. Is it heart attack?
With repeated ECG, holter monitors, ECHO, cardiac MRI and stress tests would long QT syndrome be obvious to diagnose?
Would structural heart disease in 22 yr old be ruled out by echo, ecg, cardiac mri, stress ecg, 24h ecg, cardiac coronary anatomy mra?
Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia.DR impressions on ecg. This means?
ECG interpretation : The "no acute ischemia" part means that there is no heart attack occurring at the moment. The rest really implies that the ECG tracing was not perfect in its appearance. This could be nothing, or it could be related to true heart disease. This type of EKG would need to be interpreted in context: symptoms, physical limitation, other testing. ...Read more
The interpretation of my ECG result said :
junctional rhythm, rightward axis, st elevation, consider inferolateral injury or infaret, acute mi.?
EKG : I would not go by the computer interpretation of any ekg, it is better to ask the physician ordering it for the interpretation. ...Read more
22 had ecg, stress ecg, cardiac mri/mra, 24h ecg, echo. For chest pain when excercising. Does this rule out congenital coronary anomalies?
You have already: Undergone many of the tests to exclude any ischemia to heart muscle, but the only way to rule out any congenital coronary artery anomalies is by angiogram. Talk with your cardiologist, but chance of finding any significant anomalies seem small to me with all negative results so far. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
ECG reads "cannot rule out previous anterior MI" and " minimal requirements met for current anterior infarct, abnormal comp to previous ECG"?Explain?
Clinical correlation: Basically your ECG likely shows low voltage in the anterior precordial leads, which may be secondary to left ventricular hypertrophy, anterior infarct pattern, or secondary to body habitus. SO since your have had an echocardiogram and a CT angiogram, both of these tests would be able to corroborate if ECG is consistent with "anterior infarct" or not, I suggest u ask ur cardiologist to correlate. ...Read more
Possibility of heart attack with normal: EKG, troponin, nuclear stress, cardiac MRI, echo, calcium score? I have chest / left arm pain. Need cath/CTA?
Can you explain this ECG result? Sinus rhythm, Short PR interval, Horizontal axis, RSR' pattern in V1 and V2, low QRS voltages in precordial leads.
ECG: I am surprised and disappointed that your primary doctor and/or cardiologist did not discuss this with you in detail. They MUST explain this to you. That said, you will find readable information on that when you go online or go to the local library. I would like to hear from you what develops. ...Read more
Sinus tachycardia~t wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia~abnormal ecg~when compared with ECG of 10-aug-2013 11:38, ~questionable change in qrs?
Non-specific: You need a stress test. It appears that you've had one. If it's been >1 year, it should be repeated now and done with an imaging modality such as echo or nuclear perfusion imaging. A resting ekg is a notoriously inaccurate test, especially in middle-aged women. (that's not sexism, it's science). There are many (most) false positives. ...Read more
