Inferior Myocardial Infarction Ecg
Possible inferior myocardial infarction probably old. Possible abnormal ecg...Does this mean i had an attack? I am diabetic and workout daily.
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more

Heart attack: Inferior myocardial infarction is a heart attack on the bottom of the heart. This portion of the heart is frequently served by the right coronary artery but occasionally by the circumflex coronary artery. When the artery closes, the bottom of the heart does not get any blood, and the muscle of the heart is injured. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many poss causes: An inferior mi refers to a heart attack on the inferior wall of the heart muscle. Almost all heart attacks are the result of fatty deposits on the inside of arteries that break open and cause clotting which will blocks the artery (and the blood from flowing to the part of the heart the artery feeds). Family history, fatty diet, smoking, high blood pressure all contribute to this process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Chest pain and possible myocardial infarction. Ecg reveals sinus tachycardia. What does this mean at 50?
Variable: This varies depending on the location, severity and type of myocardial infarction. Some patients have no ECG changes at all, known as electrically silent myocardial infarctions, a phenomenon more common in diabetics. Other patients have severe changes in their ECG tracing with severe arrhythmias which can be fatal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Electrical: A heart attack damages muscles in the heart. The flow of the electrical current throughout the wall changes when having to go around the damaged muscle, resulting in certain ekg changes, since ekg's show the path of electrical current in the heart. There are different changes, de[ending on which part of the muscle is damaged. ...Read more
Depends: The elevation of ck-mb is in direct proportion to the size of the infarction. The highest i personally have ever seen was about 1000 but that is very unsual. Also, ck-mb will rise as a % of the total circulating ck. Normall ck-mb is less than 1.5% of total ck. After infarction, ck-mb will go to anywhere between 2.5-15% of total ck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; ...Read more
