I m 32 years old, just done ECG which shows hb 102 p 97 BP 137/85. Poor r wave progression v3 and v4. T wave flattened. Sinus tachondria. What does it?

I m 32 years old, just done ECG which shows hb 102 p 97 BP 137/85. Poor r wave progression v3 and v4. T wave flattened. Sinus tachondria. What does it?

The words you have: Used are not medical terms but I assume that hb is heart beat and p is pulse and tachondria is tachycardia. If that is accurate then your EKG is probably normal for you and you were a little anxious when it was done. Your Blood pressure also reflects this. All looks pretty normal. Relax. ...Read more
