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

Please tell me my ecg I normal? Rate 77 PR 200 QRSD 85 QT 392 QTc 444 AXIS P 51 QRS -19 T 45

ECG: Those values are within normal limits, the appearance of the ecg other than these measurements isn't here so can't be certain there's nothing in the morphology of the ecg that isn't right. These measurements are ok. ...Read more

I feel sometimes a sudden electric current like pain in my heart. Bt my ECG is normal?

Chest pain: A sudden jolting chest pain can be very alarming. A normal ECG is reassuring, but whether or not any further evaluation is needed depends on your risk of having a heart problem, according to your age, gender, smoking history, cholesterol level, presence of diabetes, and family history of heart problems. ...Read more

I am a woman 47 years lately I have been experiencing dizziness palpitations which is sudden, my ecg was normal.

Palpitations: Can have a variety of causes such as a primary cardiac process, anxiety and thyroid dysfunction. The fact that your ECG was normal does not rule out an arrythmia. Sometimes more intense or long cardiac monitoring such as a holter monitor is warranted. ...Read more

I am 27, male. I walk 5 kms a day for exercise purpose. Off late I am getting immense chest pain on left side. What can be reason. My ECG is normal.

I am 27, male. I walk 5 kms a day for exercise purpose. Off late I am getting immense chest pain on left side. What can be reason. My ECG is normal.

Many reasons for: Chest pain. It can be related to an injury to the chest wall, inflammation of the heart muscle or sac (pericardium) surrounding the heart. It can be related to irritation of your food pipe (esophagus). It can be related to irritation of the lung or lining around the lung (pleural lining). But to be able to better guide you, more information is necessary. ...Read more

Omeprazole: Teph 20 is a brand of omeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor used to lower gastric acidity. There are other ways of achieving this if you cannot tolerate ppis. You need to discuss this with your doctor. If you are concerned only about the brand name, there are alternative generic brands of Omeprazole available. ...Read more

My ECG says "normal variant of ECG" and sinus tachycardia. What does this mean?

You're normal!: It means that your heart rhythm is normal (sinus) but the rate is >100 (tachycardia). This is caused by non-cardiac issues like stress, anxiety, pain, fever, anemia (you mention menstruation) etc. "Normal variant" means that you're normal but we wouldn't choose your EKG to illustrate a medical textbook for students learning EKGs. Be well. ...Read more

My echocardiogram and my ECG were normal, so what are the chances of my Stress ECHO being normal If I did the test? High right?

My echocardiogram and my ECG were normal, so what are the chances of my Stress ECHO being normal If I did the test? High right?

Likely normal: It's likely to be normal but not for the reasons you list. Because you're 24, the incidence of coronary disease is very low, so your test will probably be normal. However it's entirely possible to have a nl resting echo and nl EKG and an abnormal stress echo which is specifically looking for evidence of inadequate circulation. The resting tests are relatively insensitive to that. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

F23 feeling palpitaion and breathlessness with pain in the left breast since last 2-3 month and now feeling of buzzing in the chest my ecg was normal?

? Heart condition: You may have a rapid heartbeat problem which is either regular or irregular. If your physical exam was normal along with your EKG, a Holter monitor is indicated to see if you have an irregular, fast or skipped heartbeats. The monitor could be for one day or recorded much longer or as an event monitor. You should also consider bloodwork to check for an electrolyte in balance or a thyroid condition. ...Read more

I can feel my heart moving while lying on left side whem I touch my ribs. Is normal? Do I have cardiomegaly? So afraid. My ECG was normal last march 201

Ok: It is pretty normal to feel your heart moving when you lay on your left side. This is especially true if you are relatively thin. The heart does not have to be big to feel your heart this way. All the best! ...Read more

Wearing a heart monitor for 2 weeks and I usually experience chest pain and dizzy spells. My ecg was normal but poor r wave progression. Should I be w?

Why im. Having dob specially when I am. Standing up. And doing a lot of things? My s02 is normal. My ECG is also normal. I was rushed to ER due to dob

Why im. Having dob specially when I am. Standing up. And doing a lot of things? My s02 is normal. My ECG is also normal. I was rushed to ER due to dob

Resubmit question!: Acronyms are dangerous when a physician isn't familiar with the abbreviation, especially when the context isn't clear. I guess that dob has something to do with Shortness of Breath or Dyspnea on Exertion, but guessing has no place in medical care. Also, there are various ways to measure O2 levels, including pulse oximetry (which is the easiest & most common). Resubmit w/ clarification. ...Read more

My pulse rate remains btwn 105-110...My ECG report is normal. .. I can't find out the reason behind. .. My weight is 101 kg?

Not so bad.: This is a mild tachycardia. Can be from stress, pain, anemia, overactive thyroid, lung or heart issues, too much caffeine/stimulants. Probably blood was tested for anemia, thyroid. Oxygen level likely normal w/out symptoms but can check on finger with oximeter. Cardiac testing can be done but if you feel good & can do everything, probably will be negative. If stress it will vanish while asleep. ...Read more

If my 24hr ECG is normal and I'm still experiencing palpitations what could it be? Also I did thyroid test and it is still good.

If my 24hr ECG is normal and I'm still experiencing palpitations what could it be? Also I did thyroid test and it is still good.

Maybe Holter monitor: Sometimes patients can wear event monitors or holter monitors for a while to try to capture events that don't occur during the "snapshot" of an ecg. Should the palpitations continue sometimes medicines like beta blockers are used. ...Read more

My ECG report is normal. I hv anxiety & high BP recently dgnsd wth diabetes. Sometimes pain in my chest & also movement near chest. Pls advise?

Street test.: If you're heading down the "possible heart disease" pathway because of your chest pain, diabetes and hypertension, then a stress test would be much more useful diagnostically than the ECG. Get a stress echocardiogram or nuclear stress test. ...Read more

What can be the cause of middle chest pain and difficulty of breathing with upper backpain? My ECG result is normal im 25 female hav highblood pressure

Go see a doctor: It could be a lot of things either benign, or life-threatening. So you will need to get evaluated. It could for example range from anxiety attacks, to heart burn, to blood clots in the lung, to vascular problems like aneurysms of the aorta, or aortic dissection. So as you can see there are various serious issues that could cause similar symptoms even with normal ecg. Get yourself checked out. ...Read more

When seated I feel like someone is pinching my breast. Normal ECG and echo, and chest x ray. 20yrs male, the pain is on my left side what can it be?

Pinching clearly: Reflects chest wall, likely outside the rib cage pain, not internal pain from heart, lungs, etc. Sounds like you are being sold standard tests for wrong issues; instead of careful history taking & assistance with problem solving with understanding. Your primary medical decision maker (physician if you will) is always yourself, never someone else. If someone else can understand, they you can too. ...Read more

My father's ECG is normal. But when I checked his heart rate through Apple watch, sometimes for 5 mins. His heart rate is 33-40 when sleeping. Normal?

My father's ECG is normal. But when I checked his heart rate through Apple watch, sometimes for 5 mins. His heart rate is 33-40 when sleeping. Normal?

It depends: The heart rate tends to get slower as one gets older. This especially occurs at sleep. It also is slow in even younger people who exercise such as running. An EKG should be done to confirm that it is just sinus bradycardia which could be normal. If he is otherwise well, it probably is not a problem. Does he have a doctor. If there were a question some times we have a patient wear a monitor. ...Read more
