What does sinus rhythm with nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means? Is it serious?

What does sinus rhythm with nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means? Is it serious?

No not serious: Your rhythm is normal. The nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means that your complexes are wide in no specific (right or left bundle branch pattern) pattern. This can happen as you age, if you smoke, as part of ischemic or other heart disease. It depends on the context in which you had the ECG done. In general it is nothing to worry about but good to know and possibly have a copy

What is intraventricular conduction delay?

What is intraventricular conduction delay?

ECG: On an ECG a widened qrs complex indicates slowed impulse conduction through the ventricles.

What are some causes of intraventricular conduction delay?

What are some causes of intraventricular conduction delay?

Intraventricular del: IVCD can be caused by anatomic or physiologic factors which would slow electrical conduction in the ventricles. Scar tissue, infiltration of abnormal tissue, electrolyte abnormality, ischemia, infarction and lots of things can cause intraventricular conduction delay.

What can cause intraventricular conduction delay?

What can cause intraventricular conduction delay?

Conduction delay: There are several reasons from conduction diseases to cardiomyopathies or ischemia, however most of the time there is no detectable underlying disease for mild conduction delays.,

Is intraventricular conduction delay ECG serious?

Is intraventricular conduction delay ECG serious?

Sometimes: Intraventricular conduction delay (ivcd) refers to a condition in which electrical conduction through the heart muscle is delayed or slowed. It can be seen in a variety of disorders such as myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, ventricular fibrosis, heart failure, a high potassium level, and following a heart attack. Mild ivcd can be seen in normal healthy people as well. Check with your doctor.

Can beta blockers cause intraventricular conduction delay?

Can beta blockers cause intraventricular conduction delay?

Yes,: Potentially beta blockers at significant doses could have effects on the conduction system and produce an intraventricular conduction delay.

Can you tell me in a routine ekg, the doctor said I had an non-specific intraventricular conduction delay with normal st segme?

May be normal: It can be a normal variant. Be sure your BP is normal is well controlled. If you really want to be compulsive, you could get an echo to screen for cardiomyopathy but it's very likely to be normal and a waste of time and money.

QRS 91 on ECG doctor states also borderline Intraventricular conduction delay. He still states my ECG is normal. Is that so? Should I be worried?

Without actually: Looking at your EKG it is difficult to be 100% certain however a QRS duration of less than 100 msec is in normal range so 91 msec is fine. If it is less than 100 msec I would not label it IVCD so your doctor is correct to call it normal. No worries!

Had ECG doctor says normal although it read borderline intraventricular conduction I take more atenolol than I should at times. Should I be worried?

Had ECG doctor says normal although it read borderline intraventricular conduction I take more atenolol than I should at times. Should I be worried?

If your doctor has: Interpreted the EKG as normal then you should accept that. The computer interpretation algorithms are skewed to pathology not normalcy. Regardless, nonspecific intraventricular conduction delay is essentially normal so atenolol will not cause any problem. You should not be worried but you should discuss with your doctor as to why you take extra atenolol! Maybe there are better therapies for you.

My result in ECG is intraventricular conduction delay. Is it serious? What is its causes? I'm experiencing difficulty in breathing and chest pain.

My result in ECG is intraventricular conduction delay. Is it serious? What is its causes? I'm experiencing difficulty in breathing and chest pain.

Bening: Intraventricular conduction delay is a normal finding in young patients. However, if you are having chest pain and dizziness, I would reccomend to visit a physician.

Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia. DR impressions on ecg. This means?

Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia. DR impressions on ecg. This means?

ECG interpretation: The "no acute ischemia" part means that there is no heart attack occurring at the moment. The rest really implies that the ECG tracing was not perfect in its appearance. This could be nothing, or it could be related to true heart disease. This type of EKG would need to be interpreted in context: symptoms, physical limitation, other testing.

My bf EKG resulted in probable intraventricular conduction delay and right ventricular hypertrophy on lead 1. Should I be worried? He is 24 and athleti

May be normal: In a young person, an ECG may show those findings (especially with an automated interpretation program) and still be normal, though the possibility of a congenital heart problem or elevated pressure in the lung circulation cannot be ruled out. Best thing to do is to talk to his doctor, consider getting an echocardiogram with doppler pressures, and if that is abnormal, see a cardiologist.

My EKG now reads escape rhythm, LBBB, & intraventricular conduction delay. What does this indicate? I was started on digoxin to hold me up for a week

Complicated: Since you had an ablation, you're obviously under the care of electrophysiologist, so you should trust their judgement. You have a complicated situation. Your rhythm isn't textbook normal but may be fine for you. If you're not feeling well now (you mention dizziness in particular), please contact your EP right away.

Motion of the intraventricular septum is consistent with elevated RV systolic pressure. Motion of the intraventricular septum: septal bounce consistent with inter-ventricular conduction" mean?

Motion of the intraventricular septum is consistent with elevated RV systolic pressure. Motion of the intraventricular septum: septal bounce consistent with inter-ventricular conduction" mean?

Abnl septal motion: When the heart contracts, all the left ventricular walls should move together, including the interventricular septum. Abnormal motion of the interventricluar septum is where the interventricluar septum is NOT moving simultaneously with the other left ventricular walls, and can be due to high pulmonary pressures, abnormal electrical conduction through the heart, like left bundle branch block.
