How To Interpret 12 Lead Ekg
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
If i had hyperkalemia wouldn't it show peaked t waves throughout entire 12 lead EKG with widened qrs?
What does an EKG 12-lead impression: non-specific st t wave abnormality mean?I i just need to know what this test result means.
A : A "nonspecific" abnormality means that the wave doesn't look like the typical, standard ekg. The st-t wave is the wave that occurs right after the qrs. Often times the wave doesn't look typical, but it is important to note if prior ekg's have appeared the same for the patient. Also, some medications can cause these changes. ...Read more
Slightly peaked t waves in v2 and v3 on 12 lead EKG but all else normal. Is this ok or hyperkalemia/ mi?
Meaning of the diagnosis from an EKG, 12 Lead, Initial: Sinus bradycardia, Low voltage QRS, Possible Septal and Inferior infarcts, age undetermined.
3 things: Sinus bradycardia means the heart rate is less than 60 Low voltage QRS could be associated with many things, including obesity, emphysema, lung disease, pericardial effusion, infiltrative cardiomyopathy, etc Possible septal and inferior infarcts age undetermined: there is some evidence of possible heart attacks on the septal and inferior walls of the heart, and cannot determine the age of events ...Read more
Need a sample ekg. Normal and increased heart rate one (like after exercising) to see which intervals do or don't increase. I have already looked online for samples but they are mostly of 12 lead ekgs. I only need a basic 3 lead sample for each. Thanks.
The : The university of utah has a nice site that includes many examples of both rhythm strips and 12-lead ecgs. ...Read more
I have my 12 lead EKG result showing sinus rhythm with sinus arrhythmia and non specific t wave change. My qrs is 112ms and qt 586ms with 85 beat/sec.?
EKG 12 lead. Sinus Tachycardia. inferior - posterior infarct. Age undetermined. Abnormal ECG. When compared with previous ECG of 24 July 2015. Vent. rate has increased by 36 BPM. Inferior-Posterior infarct is Now Present. WHAT can you tell here?
Ecg: A stress test and/or heart catheterization give much better information than an ECG. A cardiologist needs to review your ECG as well. 37 yrs old is young to have heart disease as well. I need to see your ecg to say much more, and I am happy to do a consult with you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
ECG: It stands for electrocardiogram. It is used to measure the movement of electrical signals in the heart. When working appropriately, this enables your heart to beat and pump blood to the rest of the body. When the heart is damaged or the electrical system is malfunctioning, ECG can pick up changes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The EKG is routinely: performed with 6 chest wires (V1-V6) (six signals or leads) and the four arm wires. 10 wires. The signals from the arm and leg wires are electronically combined to provide a triangular pattern of three leads (signals) I,II,III. And then also electronically combined to produce what is called augmented leads (signals). aVR, aVL, and aVF. 6 more signals (leads). Thus 10 wires and twelve leads. ...Read more
