How To Read An Ecg Graph
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
From ECG :
hr 80 bpm, qrs 96, qt/qtcb : 398/458, pr 130, p 102 , rr/pp : 754 /750, p/qrs/t:10/10/10, qtd/qtcbd:66/76, sokolow 2.9, nk:9. How to read?
Normal: The book on reading ekg's is very long. Your ekg data is normal. ...Read more
Missing Words: My guess is that it said "aberrant ventricular conduction" and you're missing the last word. I'd have to see the ekg to know though. Sorry :\. ...Read more

Well: What did you doctor say? Did you ask him/ her as who sees you and did the test is the one with most info on your condition. ...Read more

Early repolarization: Years of believing early repolarization is benign don't get invalidated by one observational study. Too early to be nervous about it till lots more data and subset detail develops. ...Read more
