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
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
Had echocardiogram, nuclear stress test w cardiolite, EKG and 30 day holter. Does the echo and nuclear test rule out CAD or any potential blockages?
For what?: These tests provide different information and have different indications. Stress tests are to look for evidence to support a diagnosis of symptomatic blocked coronary arteries. Holtor is used to evaluate for dysthymia. Echocardiogram is useful to look at the heart valves and other features. Choosing the right test depends on what symptoms you are having. Discuss this with your doctor. ...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...
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..
Change w/exercise : When excercised, or 'stressed', the heart needs more oxegen to function properly than at rest. If it's not getting that increase, the muscle will start to move in abnormal ways, which will show up on the echo. At rest, because it needs less oxegen, it may be getting enough, so it will look normal then. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Echocardiogram good, blood tests good, stress test good except for reversible ischemia but test had 10% false positives should I trust the test ?
I have had regular stress test. Nuclear stress test echocardiogram and heart catherization. All normal what's chance missed blockage or pulm htn?
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
What heart tests are done before a decision for a heart cath .Ive had several . EKG, stressecho, Ct score, lexiscan, echo, 21 day monitor. All normal?
Ekgs good( sinus tachycardia)..Chest xray..Blood work. Cardiac enzymes..Ct angiogram ok..Echo and stress test on wednesday..Is it safe to say all is w?
Not always: Sometimes an ekg can't detect an arrhythmia. A patient must be experiencing the rhythm disturbance when the ekg is performed. There are other methods to detect arrhythmias such as a holter monitor or an event monitor. Check with your primary provider if your condition warrants this test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal D-Dimer lab, cardiac echo shows mild RCA blockage , physican ordered a nuclear stress test . I am a Paramedic ,can you code with a stress test?
Unlikely: The long answer is that you have a stressful job and you are frequently in situations that cause emotional and physical stress. You should be fine. They will be monitoring you during the test. Also, if the test were that risky, we would not do it so often. Even if you do code. You will be on a monitor in a medical facility with the ability to resuscitate. ...Read more

Ct angiogram score of 0 in 2012, 2 negative stress echo and 3d echo. Dad heart attack at 50 and I have CHD papvr. Chest pain but negative test. Help?
CTA score?: We don't report a score with a coronary artery CTA. CAC (coronary artery calcium) score is done with CT but without IV contrast. The nonconrast study looks at calcified plaque and is useful for risk stratification but would not detect non calcified plaque as a CTA would. Partial anomalous pulmonary venous return is an extra cardiac left to right shunt and could eventually lead to pulm HTN. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
