Ekg Practice Questions
I've had about five ekgs in the past two years and a eco gram and they couldn't find anything wrong so my question could itbe aniexty for my chestpain?
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
Just got EKG-showed heart attack!I'm in good health,exercise alot.Should I be having some discomfort if I had heart attack in past?One of your docs responded but did not answer my question.
Rephrasing last question.Waking mid night witha fast heartrate for wks.Nothing over 100BPM.EKG,Stres,Echo,Holt were norm.What else could cause thisbe?
Anxiety or distress?: If all the medical causes are reliably eliminated, then I would consider whether anxiety or distress may be the culprit. Anxiety is often associated with an elevated heart rate; with panic attacks, heart rate can be markedly elevated. Also, people can become hyperaware, making it worse. Rarely, medical conditions may cause high stress hormone levels, unlikely but sometimes worth checking. ...Read more
Had EKG it was fine that's three this year question is what could cause my chest pain it's sharp pain stabbing could it be my acid reflux or aniexty?
?musculoskeletal: Chest pain in a 22 yo is rarely causec by heart problems ; the normal ekg's suggest your heart is fine. Reflux or anxiety can cause chest pain that is usually squeezing or a pressure/tightness. Sharp stabbing pain makes me suspect a musculoskeletal cause. Consider seeing an osteopath who does manipulation or a good chiropractor- see http://bit.Ly/1kgd0xp acupuncture or homeopathy may also help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Follow up question: my friend has had a clear ekg, been cleared, for asthma and still has shooting left arm pain/chest twinges. What should she do?
Further test: Depends how old your friend is as well as the medical history. In a teenager, it rarely could be anything serious unless he/she has a history of congenital cardiac problems or sudden death in the family. In an older patient, it would be concerning for heart disease. If symptoms persist, see their doctor for further evaluation/treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had asked the question about my pulse rest @ 150. I had EKG & it showed all norm but sinus tachycardia 150 at rest. Is this ok? It wasn't vt or svt
Tachycardia: If the ECG was sinus tachycardia you needn't worry about ventricular tachycardia. Svt is usually faster. A rate of 150 is often aflutter with 2:1 block. If your physician is confident it is sinus tachycardia then it shouldn't be a problem. You may want to ask his/her opinion as to what is thought to be the cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Having chest tightness for a week and dry cough had recent EKG it was ok ,had a follow up chest CT for a nodule 4months ago no changes question can something change in short time in chest or what els?
Sorry 4 so many questions I'm scared to sleep due to sudden change in ECG from normal to non specific t wave abnormality in a few hours exstreme aniexty Google says sign of serious problem?
Not a problem: The T wave is the most labile wave in the ECG. T wave changes including low-amplitude T waves and abnormally inverted T waves may be the result of many cardiac and non-cardiac conditions. The normal T wave is usually in the same direction as the QRS except in the right precordial leads (see V2 below). See link for details but try not to get confused with medical jargon. Consult your MD for sp qs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
