Heart Ekg Results
Yes and no: "bad ekg results" aren't good. The ekg is the body surface representation of the electrical activity of the heart, and not the blood or other things. That said, there are other medical conditions that can affect the ekg. I'd recommend that you ask your cardiologist (or whoever told you that the ekg result is bad) to give you more information about your condition. Additional testing may be needed. ...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
Help! Feel like I'm breathing very shallow while trying to sleep, healthy am over weight but heart healthy multiple ekg normal results 2 occurences?
Can you tell me if i had a normal EKG reading, but weeks after im still having chest pains should I worry about a heart attack?
Less likely: A nl ekg does not completely exclude active heart disease. If there are persistent symptoms cardiology eval with echo, stress test and cardiac enzymes may be in order. If these tests are neg and symptoms persist atrial of nsaids for costochondritismay be helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My EKG reading was 54, could that be the beginning of bradychardia? My mom has a slow heart beat and a heart murmur. I'm concerned I will get a murmur
Bradycardia: Bradycardia in a person who is physically very active is normal. If you are performing aerobic exercise on a regular basis, do not worry about a heart rate of 54 bpm. A heart murmur can be benign, albeit if you develop it later in life, you need to be evaluated; however, there is very little correlation between bradycardia and a heart murmur (far-fetched correlations exist however). ...Read more

Male,49 yo, smoker,for the past year i've been experiencing this pin prick feeling in left side of chest,EKG results :normal?
I recently had an Echocariogram, Holter (24 hour) and EKG. Results-Episodes of tach,. bileaflet MVP and trace regurgitaition. Can you explain?
Valve: Your bileaflet mitral valve is normal. It is a bicuspid valve. The mitral valve works like an inverted parachute when blood comes into your heart from the lungs the parachutes collapse and blood comes into the chamber. When your heart beats the parachutes open and do not let blood back into the lungs. Sometimes that do not close completely and that causes regurgitation. Usually some is common. ...Read more
Ekg results; vent 81bpm, p duration 122, qrs duration 138, pr interval 178, qt/qtc 392/428? How abnormal is this? Only diagnosis I have is lbbb.
Depends: Lbbb is abnormal. It may be associated with coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, an enlarged heart, or cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease). Rarely, it can be congenital (present at birth). The significance of lbbb depends on the presence or absence of associated heart disease and whether it is a new finding or has been present for several years. May need echocardiogram and/or heart cath. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
2 things: sinus bradycardia means you have a resting heart rate less than 60, can be normal finding in young, healthy or athletic people, can also be pathologic depending on how low and the clinical scenario. Short PR can mean accelerated AV conduction which is essentially normal, or could me a pre-excitation suggesting presence of a bypass tract (WPW) but usually accompanied with other findings. ...Read more
Why do I get daily attacks of shortness of breath when my peak flow, oxygen saturation, pulse, temperature, blood test and EKG results are all normal?
Breath: Many things can cause you to feel short of breath. One of the most common is a panic attack. Are you prone to them? Other medical conditions such as congestive heart failure with volume overload are frequently seen in elderly patients. Other heart conditions and pulmonary conditions can cause this as well. In a young healthy person such as yourself a panic attack seems more likely. See your Dr ...Read more
