I don't know anything about medicine, i just want to know if a inverted P wave on ECG can be nothing bad.?

I don't know anything about medicine, i just want to know if a inverted P wave on ECG can be nothing bad.?

Could be fine: It's usually fine. The exact location the p wave comes from in the heart moves up and down in the right atrium along something called the crista terminalis. As it does so, the p wave morphology can change. Your specific situation may vary, of course. ...Read more

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

I have skipped heart beats 3-4 per minute and my ecg report shows tall t waves in v3(looks inverted) and blood tests r normal.Any problems in it?

Probably not: If the EKG is otherwise not concerning, be thankful for good health. Have your physician help you manage your acne. Hit the aerobic fitness circuit hard and you will probably feel more comfortable in addition to the other benefits ...Read more

ECG comparison changes inverted T-wave. I had spinal injury before the 1st ECG cervical thoracic Lumbosacral neuritis. Is it Related to spine or CNS?

ECG comparison changes inverted T-wave. I had spinal injury before the 1st ECG cervical thoracic Lumbosacral neuritis. Is it Related to spine or CNS?

Yes possibly: It is well documented that there is a whole gamut of ST/T changes that can occur in the setting of CNS injury, ranging from subtle ST Changes, sinus arrhythmia/sinus tachycardia, etc. IF you have risk factors for CAD, and are having chest pain/pressure, then see a cradiologist sooner than later. ...Read more

Always had abnormal ECG due to inverted Twaves last ECG said ST & Twave abnormality, consider Anterior ischemia cant rule out inferior infarct. Worry?

Always had abnormal ECG due to inverted Twaves last ECG said ST & Twave abnormality, consider Anterior ischemia cant rule out inferior infarct. Worry?

Depends: You list "stress echocardiography" - was this normal? It's a much more accurate test than just an ordinary, resting EKG. If your stress echo was normal, forget the EKG but remember to always warn future doctors that you have a "normal funky-looking EKG" so they don't worry. ...Read more

Recently my ECG was done and doc wrote t inverted on the report. What does t inversion mean?

Recently my ECG was done and doc wrote t inverted on the report. What does t inversion mean?

Depends...: The significance of t wave inversions is almost impossible to assess without taking into account the history and examination findings in a given patient; i.e., ECG findings can be difficult to interpret when viewed in isolation. T wave inversions can be due to a long list of possible diagnoses, some benign/non-specific, others concerning, and usually require further assessment. ...Read more

A doctor said my inverted t-waves on EKG looked deeper when compared 2 a different ekg, i asked him 2 explain but i didn't understand the medical term?

A doctor said my inverted  t-waves on EKG looked deeper when compared 2 a different ekg, i asked him 2 explain but i didn't understand the medical term?

T Waves: Inverted T waves can be (key words) sign of lack of blood flow to the heart muscle. However, some people have abnormal ECG's without any blockages. As long as you are without chest pain your ECG should not worry you. Your age and the fact that you are female it is highly unlikely that you have obstructive coronary disease. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Ekg shows inverted t waves. Normal sinus rythmn. Palpitations feel like skipped beat followed by two hard slow thumps then back to normal. What is it?

PVC.: Sounds like you have a premature ventricular contractions or premature atrial contractions although i think these less likely. I would not be worried about inverted t waves in the absence of any other cardiac symptoms. To be absolutely sure these are what i think they are it would be reasonable to obtain a holter or event monitor and capture a few of these. ...Read more

Can incorrect lead placement lead to an inverted t-wave on ekg?

Can incorrect lead placement lead to an inverted t-wave on ekg?

Yes: Yes, absolutely. Avr usually has inverted t-waves normally. If you invert left and right arm electrodes, avr becomes avl so now avl has inverted t waves (where as typically it does not). ...Read more

A couple days ago my EKG was normal. Now I have inverted t waves. My blood work is normal. If my blood work shows no heart concern should I worry?

Depends: Why did you have a repeat EKG within 2 days in the first place ? T wave inversion can be seen normally in certain leads depending on position or breathing specially in young individuals . A more thorough history and exam by your physician is more likely to yield a diagnosis than a blood test. Know that EKG changes can be seen in other conditions such as blood clot in the lungs,electrolyte changes, ...Read more
