How Would A Defective Heart Valve Be Detected Ecg
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
I have floppy heart valve.Sometimes get chest pains and pain under collar bone.Did stress ECG dr said some part of it looks like an m. What cn b wrong?
Floppy mitral valve: This needs to be confirmed by echocardiogram. The severity need a to be identified. It can be associated w other chest pain, shortness of breath or palpitations. Increase water intake, avoid caffeine and slowly increase daily activity. Please consult with your cardiologist. ...Read more
Ecg w marked sinus bradycardia. Septal infarct age undetermined. Abnormal ecg. Heart murmur w left valve leakage. History of chest pain. Is this bad?
My brother hasn't had a ECG in a long time he has a heart murmur and also a leaky valve, he gets chest pain sometimes, is it anxiety or heart problems?
Too many scares: There is no good way to answer this without data. You know it, but your brother needs to re-establish care with his physician and to get this figured out! ...Read more
Probably: Msm is a sulfur compound sold to people as a supplement. It is not an fda-regulated prescription drug, so it's effects, it's quality, it's consistency, it's benefits, and it's dangers are not well studied and may be unknown. Msm is not proven to help people, and people are not proven to be missing msm. This all means that msm needs more research before it can be considered not "a bad choice". ...Read more
Ok, is it possible to engage in vigorous physical activity with bad heart valve and or aortic aneurysm without experiencing symptoms?
Not likely: The cardiac valve problem, especially aortic or mitral, will cause shortness of breath issues which would make it unlikely to continue what your were doing. The aortic aneurysm would have little to no symptoms with activity. Doesn't mean that the aneurysm can't rupture, in which case your symptoms would be pain and likely death. Very unlikely to happen unless the aneurysm is greater than 5 cm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi, my mom has a problem, she visited the doctor, got an EKG done, and the result was a valve was enlarged in her heart, was does that mean?
Septic pneumonia 1 yr ago. W/ heart valves infected. Now abnormal EKG w/ daily heart fluttering. Could it be residual, or perhaps the start of actual serious heart condition? See cardio Dr next mo.
Resting heart rate around 53 bpm. PCP says this is ok.Passed stress test, EKG ok.Slight mitral valve prolapse.Is this a concern? Worried!!!
Probably not: If you are active, that is, fit, your resting heart rate would be less than 60 BPM and when sleeping even lower. So the context is imp. Further, if when doing stress test, your heart rate increased appropriately, then additional evidence that you don't have chronotropic incompetence. Last, I see u r on thyroid medicine, so be sure your TSH is in normal range . ...Read more
My heart rate's been fluctuating quickly 80-170bpm for a week. Ekg and labs normal, mitral valve prolapse on echo. Burning in inner ears today. Ideas?
Do you have SVT?: It you have supraventricular tachycardia diagnosed cilnically or on holter monitor, there are a variety of ways to approach it -- i used to have it (and mild prolapse on echo) and found that simply staying in really good aerobic shape worked better than meds, as the textbooks confirm. This is one for a good general physician or a caridologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more
