What you have is: ..."benign early depolarization." Benign is the operative word here b/c there's no impact on your cardiac health. It's considered a normal variation (like red hair & freckles). It means that your heart's electrical system resets itself after each beat more quickly that average. This causes corresponding changes in the EKG. No worries here! Dr. Anne ...Read more
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
What is the probability of sca with a normal ekg(normal heartbeat, just fast), normal echo shows normal function, normal stress test/normal blood work?
Low: The probability of sca is low in the young, healthy population. Unless you have a family history of sca or a genetic predisposition to sudden death, your risk should also be low. There is a risk calculator that can be applied to assess sca risk in patients undergoing surgery. It was developed by dr. Gupta and can be accessed at www.Qxmd.Com. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily norm: Ecg is notoriously inaccurate, especially in the detection of ischemic heart disease. You should find a physician who offers multifunction cardiogram in his office. It is the most accurate in the detection of ischemia in women! please go find one, and it may save your life! http://en.M.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/multifunction_cardiogram. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
55-65% (70%): Ejection fraction (ef) is the volume of blood pumped out of the ventricle of the heart with each heart beat. Normal is 55%- 65%/70%. Levels above this are what we call hyperdynamic. Levels below this suggest a decreased ability of the heart to function. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Not necessarily: These tests can only pick up so many of the abnormalities. It is possible that you have narrowing of the coronary arteries but the blockage is not severe enough to show up in these tests. It would be prudent to discuss the matter with your doctor to see what are the results of other tests, including lab tests and what, if any life style changes or medications may be needed. ...Read more
Yes.: If the TSH is within the reference range, is is rare that the patient would need any adjustment in thyroid treatment. Initiating higher doses with a TSH within the normal range may increase the risk of osteoporosis and arrhythmia. Usually, perceived symptoms that led to the testing of the TSH are not from the thyroid if the TSH is "ok." Look for other causes of symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My EKG showed abnormal precordial qrs contours. My cardiologist said it was normal but I was wanting a second opinion on what this could mean.
I am normally slightly tachycardic, 115bpm is my normal HR. Heart skipped beats yesterday so went to ER. Dr said EKG was normal. How can it be normal?
EKG: The EKG may have missed skipped beats because it is a short recording of the electricity in your heart. If you continue to have symptoms, ask your doctor to do a Holter monitor study which is a 48 hour study that should detect any unusual beats. All the best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Left shoulder pain, sometimes left arm pain, gastric problem, ECG is normal. lipid profile is normal. BP is normal. what it can be?
Non specific: Many ST-T wave abnormalities are nonspecific. By themselves, they may not represent any problem, because a variety of unrelated issues can cause them - for example, electrolyte abnormalities from dehydration, hyperventilation from anxiety, and other non heart related problems are possible causes. So they don't necessarily indicate a heart problem. Talk to your doctor about possible causes for you ...Read more
