Heart Tremor Echocardiogram
Maybe a murmur?: Not sure what a tremor is on echo. I suspect they told you you had a murmur. A murmur is a vibration in the heart which may be due to a leaky heart valve, or a narrowed heart valve. This may or may not ever need to be surgically repaired, but most commonly will need to be reassessed in the future, earlier if you develop symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Echo refers to reflections of sound waves, typically 0.5-10mhz, sent through a body structure, all variants of water density. Cardio refers to heart. Gram refers to a picture or graphical representation of the data. A form of us, these help see certain aspects of our hearts behavior/function, real-time in motion picture video. Quality & usefulness varies widely as ...Read more
Not at all: It can't see narrowed or blocked coronary arteries or electrical shortcuts or arhythmias. ...Read more
NO: Echocardiography can tell a lot about heart function, valvular function and motion, it can also tell about fluid around the heart .But it may not tell exactly about narrowing or the coronary arteries as well as completely diagnosed congenital heart disease and grade of the shunt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will echocardiogram show blockages in heart? I'm 6ft, 150lbs, athlete (39y/o) and had one 5 years ago. how often are they 'good' for?
No: An echocardiogram at rest will not show blockage. If the blockage has caused damage 9heart attack) this may be seen on the echo as an area of abnormal wall motion. An echo done during a stress test (stress echo) can indirectly indicate if a portion of the heart is suffering from reduced blood flow - which would indicate a significant blockage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a clear echocardiogram about 19 months ago. Could someone still have heart issues this soon after having a clear one?
What does a higher than normal range ivsd, lvpwd and lvpws means in an heart echocardiogram? What does an fs% lower than normal mean too? Mine at 28%
several possibilites: Ultrasound doesn't penetrate air and has difficulty with excessive depth of tissue - thus if you have COPD or are unusually thin or are unusually overweight, the ultrasound will have trouble imaging your heart. If you were born with dextrocardia (heart on the wrong side), us won't find it (unless they look hard!). Finally, their equipment may have malfunctioned. Go elsewhere if you're able. ...Read more
Cardiac echo is also known as Echocardiogram. Cardiac echo is a somewhat redundant term for "echocardiogram." during this painless procedure, harmless sound waves are passed into the chest and reflected back, providing a detailed image of the heart, measures of the flow of blood within it, and information about certain structures which surround ...Read more
