How to read the ECG report?

How to read the ECG report?

Tough question.: This topic does not lend itself to the limited space or time available here. Best to get someone local - maybe the doc who ordered it.

Electrocardiogram (Definition)

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

What does LDAP on an ECG report mean?

LDAP: It is not an ecg term, it is a data management computer term.

Can you explain the different components of ECG report?

Can you explain the different components of ECG report?

A lot!: For a cardiologist, an EKG can give information about the rate, the rhythm, whether there are signs of a congenital abnormality, signs of a heart attach or blocked artery, the thickness of the heart muscle, previous heart attack, and more. In experienced hands, an EKG can tell an incredible amount of information.

Please explain why is computerised ECG report signed as unconfirmed report?

Unconfirmed report: An unconfirmed computerized report means that a licensed physician has not reviewed the study and signed off/confirmed the accuracy of the study and its interpretation.

Ecg showed early depolarisation. Cardio said benign. I just read it can be associated with VF should I worry?

Ecg showed early depolarisation. Cardio said benign. I just read it can be associated with VF should I worry?

Early repolarization: Early repolarization is a pattern seen on an electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG.) It may be more common in young men, especially black men. There is a lot of medical literature on whether it is associated with increased risk of arrhythmias. For example see http://bit. Ly/2jXxNuS which reports long term follow up of a large cohort. Whether you should worry depends on the details of your history.

My ECG reads that I have aberrant ventricular. What is this?

My ECG reads that I have aberrant ventricular. What is this?

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 :\.

What does it mean if my ECG report says incomplete rbbb?

What does it mean if my ECG report says incomplete rbbb?

Delayed impulse: It means there is a slight delay in the transmission of the signal telling the heart to contract on its right side. Usually both right and left ventricles contract together but with rbbb, there is a delay in the spread of the impulse through the right ventricle. This shows as a slight sawtooth appearance of the qrs waveform in the right sided ekg leads.

My moms ECG report says ladp. What exactly does that mean?

Check again: I've been reading EKGs for >30 years, but I'm not familiar with "ladp". The closest I can think of are lahb (left anterior hemiblock) or lafb (left anterior fasicular block). There is LAD (left axis deviation). Please recheck your mom's report and let us know.

What do you suggest if my moms ECG report says ladp. Wht does it mean?

What do you suggest if my moms ECG report says ladp. Wht does it mean?

LADP?: Sorry-that's not a standard abbreviation for anything. If the report really says LADP, it's likely a typo. Ask for clarification.

Ecg report measurement results are ECG measurement results- qrs 100ms qt/qtcb 366/417ms pr 138 MS p 104ms, what does this mean?

Ecg report measurement results are ECG measurement results- qrs 100ms qt/qtcb 366/417ms pr 138 MS p 104ms, what does this mean?

Normal values: That is a list of standard intervals and segments measured as a part an ECG. Those numbers look pretty normal, of course there is much more to the ECG than just those standard measurements, things like rate, rhythm, axis, ST/T wave abnormalities, q waves etc.

Ecg read ST-T changes in lead these minor changes are of equivocal significance only. What does that mean and am I OK? Panicking!!!

Ecg read ST-T changes in lead these minor changes are of equivocal significance only. What does that mean and am I OK? Panicking!!!

ECG: Don't panic over equivocal findings. There's cut and dried and there's equivocal. Equivocal basically means 'we don't know what it means'.

What does repolarization mean for an ECG reading?

ECG: The ECG shows recording during depolarization and in repolarization of the heart. These are the two electrophysiologic changes that generate the ECG on the cellular level.

What is meant slight ST Depression in ECG Report?

What is meant slight ST Depression in ECG Report?

Many things: Including nothing. Depends on the pattern of the depression (up-sloping or down-sloping) and the exact amount of the depression in millimeters. The doctor who ordered the ECG is in the best position to interpret it. It can be a normal variant, or it can be evidence of a lack of blood flow (ischemia) in that part of the heart. Also depends on your cardiac history. Call your doctor to explain.

My ECG report says 'sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the right. What does that mean exactly?

My ECG report says 'sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the right. What does that mean exactly?

Nothing: It is a description of the ectrical orientation of the hearts excitation and by in itself means nothing.

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.
