Electrocardiogram Event Monitor
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
Very well, but: It's highly accurate if you happen to have the rhythm disturbance that is troubling you while you're wearing the monitor. The problem comes when you wear it for a specified time and then have symptoms after it comes off. (ever take your car in for a squeak and then it won't do it?) the monitor will catch any rhythm disturbance and if you mark it by pressing a button, special attention will be paid. ...Read more
I get chest pain that last a couple seconds I've had a blood test a Holter monitor test and a electrocardiogram all should nothing wrong what's wrong?
Many palpitations everyday, ekg. Holter monitors, 30 day event monitor, all normal but they all do show many palpitations but no arrhythmia. Why?
Thanks for asking!: Normally contractions of the heart are initiated by a special collection of cells called the sinus node. However, virtually every cell in the heart has the ability to start a contraction. Some people have cells in the heart that initiate a contraction instead of waiting for the signal to come from the usual place (the sinus node). This creates an extra beat, experienced as a palpitation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had ekg, echo, blood work, and event monitor. All normal, but I still have chest and shoulder pain constantly for 9 months. what are other causes?
Dr. says I have supraventricular tachycardia, after ekg, and has ordered a 14 day event monitor and echo. Pulse irregular. Could anxiety cause this?
Ive had echo stress test urine and blood testing 30 day event monitor holter monitor EKG and nothin but pvcs/pac but i had several in a row last night?
Palpitations?: I think you mean you had several "skipped beats" or feelings of palpitations last night? Be sure and tell your doc or cardiologist but I can't see this being a problem if event monitor and Holter came back OK. Make sure to eliminate ALL stimulants including caffeine. I'm also assuming thyroid was checked and OK too. Best of luck. ...Read more
