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
Trouble breathing, rapid heart rate, EKG revealed flattened t waves. Doc ordered echo consulted cardio who added nuclear stress test. Is this serious?
Pauses are not beats: Pauses noted on holter rhythm monitoring usually follow an early extra beats, which can be a PVC or a pac. The natural pacemaker or sa node is trained to compensate for early beats by inserting a pause to reset the next beat to normal timing. Pauses themselves are not felt, but the next normal beat can be experienced as a palpitation on the chest. ...Read moreSee 12 more doctor answers

Why do so many medical offices ask for unnecessary & intrusive personal information (ssn, drivers licenses) unrelated to medical records?
Required by law: It is required by law & insurance contracts that they have with companies & that you signed with those same companies. They need to make sure you are who you say you are & that they have proof. Also, if there is any legal question in the future, they can prove that they verified your identity. Finally, insurance companies use this info to track your health & put it into a central database. ...Read more

17 yr old palpitations... ECG, echo and stress test did not show any abnormalities. Does this rule out HCM, ARVD etc?. P.S Now doing holter monitor...
You're good: Glad you got to read up. The hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and ARVD are ruled out by a competent echo. Lots of folks have palpitations -- catch a run on Holter and you will know the type. If you do not get short of breath, and there are five or fewer per minute, they are usually harmless. Taking up hard-core aerobic fitness can help this and make you happier in the process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
17 yr old palpitations... ECG, echo and stress test did not show any abnormalities. Does this rule out HCM, ARVD etc?. P.S Now doing holter monitor..
Bloodwork, xray, ekg, echo, stress test, 24hr holter. Had all these tests done and only benign arrhythmia. Does anxiety sound right? Or possible chd?
Not CHD: Missing information is what symptom prompted this extensive work-up in the first place. Assuming palpitations was the reason, the first thing to do is to better define this. Keep a log. Take your pulse every time. Record how fast, how often, how long it lasts and what happens when it stops (sudden or slows down). The answers to these questions will provide more information to start than the tests. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
