Ekg Show Heart Attack
Depends: We may find surreptitiously in doing ekg that they may be an old heart attack. We work up the heart to find out if there is clogging of arteries or by echo how well the heart is functioning. If it is acute with symptoms and ekg suggestive of heart attack, the person is admitted to the hospital for blood tests and proper treatment by the cardiologist either invasively or by meds. ...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

It sounds like the doctor is doing all of the right testing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How does a 12 second EKG show a prior heart attack? Like, what shows on the waves that represents the heart attack? Curious, not urgent
Abnormal: Ekg shows electrical shifts the damaged-heart attacked muscle signal, is reduced. Q waves or flattening of the ekg trace are seen and commented in the report. Thickening is not a usual comment. That would be seen on an echocardiogram more likely. Ventricular hypertrophy and larger signals can be identified by ekg. ...Read more
