Ekg Show Heart Attack
Yes and No: EKG can show some changes in Q and S waves and ST. Elevation may suggest old myocardial infarction. Hotter monitor is a device that registers heart rhythms/ rate for an extended period of 24-48 hrs. It's main use is to diagnose various types of heart blocks. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more
Only gross damage: A cardiac ultrasound (echocardiogram) will show the size and function of the heart chambers and valves as well as the great vessels entering and exiting the heart. While the echocardiogram will detect wall motion abnormalities it will not detect small areas of damage or plaque build up in the coronary arteries (heart disease). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but not: heart disease. From the data you provided, myocardial infarction, (heart attack) can be ruled out, but not other heart diseases. Get clearance from your doctor to exercise and do it. Also - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
No : Heart failure is a clinical diagnosis. The classic, accepted definition of heart failure is heart disease that limits the cardiovascular system to delivery adequate oxygen to meet the body's demands/needs. There are many heart diseases that can cause heart failure. An ECG may provide a clue to the diagnosis of several of those diseases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chest pain. Ekg, d-dimer, asa, chest xray, ESR "normal". Echo says "restrictive pattern lv diastolic fill". Anxious re risk of cad/athero & heart attack. ?
Not exactly: Heart failure is a clinical syndrome that entails either lung symptoms (shortness of breath, cough, difficulty lying flat) or peripheral symptoms (lower extremity swelling) that are caused by one of a number of heart conditions. So good old fashioned history and physical exam are best. Having said that, depending on the specific cause of heart failure, the ECG may provide corroborating evidence. ...Read more
Heart echo echo ekg holter and 1month event monitor normal.Having skipped beats and chest tightness.whats causing it.Skipped beats notrecoded on event?
Ask details.: Were there isolate atrial or ventricular premature beats on the Holter. Even if there were, if they are infrequent and if a stress-echo test was normal, it sounds as though everything indicates nothing serious. Simply continue to monitor symptoms and, if symptoms worsen, repeat monitoring. ...Read more
Q waves: Some heart attacks do not show and even ones that do, may only be temporary. That said, q waves, if of sufficient voltage and if they follow known patterns, are the way of diagnosing heart attack by ekg. (caution: not all q waves are indicative of heart attack!). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi went to dr. Did EKG showed prior heart attack. X-ray showed heart normal size. Have echo scheduled. Dies heart size change with heart attack?
Heart Damage: Most silent heart attacks (those that one does not know happened) do not cause too much damage to the heart and many people are fine. But, if the heart is not beating correctly or has to work overtime to accomplish it's functions it can get extra growth or hypertrophy. It sounds like the doctor is doing all of the right testing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, Sort of... Late: Ecg is a 10 sec. Printed tracing of voltage vs. Time comparing different combinations of 10 surface body locations. Holter commonly only 1 or 2 non-standard ekg leads recorded over ~24 hrs or longer. Since inner wall of heart muscle is most susceptible to ischemic damage, surface tracings rarely show clues (e.g. Qrs widening, altered waveform, arrhythmias) until CAD problems induce enough damage. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Possibility of heart attack with normal: EKG, troponin, nuclear stress, cardiac MRI, echo, calcium score? I have chest / left arm pain. Need cath/CTA?
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
