King Of Hearts Event Monitor
I have tachycardia! rate of 130+ always! which i've had ekgs, holter monitors, event monitor, CT angiogram, & heart ultra sound which were all norm?
It depends: Even though the work up has been normal, you could still have inappropriate sinus tachycardia or supra ventricular tachycardia (avnrt for instance). If the tachycardia persists, you should see an electrophysiologist - doctor that specializes in heart rhythm disorders - and she or he can take a look at your tests and decide if something else needs to be done. ...Read more
May be a risk: As in earlier answer, multifocal pvcs may not need treatment. But you should have someone explore for possible causes of pvcs that are reversible. These can be from such things as caffeine, alcohol, other drugs, medications, thyroid disease, and some other illnesses.Some people have many pvcs.We learned that sometimes treatment can be worse than the funny rhythm. But there can be a risk so see doc. ...Read more
24hr holter moniter showed heart rate 45-170. 1% were supraventricular paced beats. Is this normal or SVT?
Probably within norm: you need to discuss with your doctor about this holter report -- ...Read more
Ct angio score of zero, stress echo normal and event monitor only ectopic beats...does this rule out CAD? Dad heart attack at 50 still alive. Help?
What is the sensitivity of EKGs, echocardiograms, and cardiac MRIs for detecting previous heart attacks? Would a normal echocardiogram signal good prognosis in the event of a previous heart attack?
Very good: Cardiac MRI is the best test for detecting a previous heart attack. An echocardiogram is probably next, followed closely by ECG. All of these tests should be pretty good at picking up a MAJOR previous heart attack. A normal echocardiogram after a heart attack is indeed an excellent prognostic marker. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Not its job: A Holter monitor records the rhythm of your heart, looking for source of palpitations / passing out (syncope) and similar. Heart blockages are detected by stress tests, specialized CT/MRI scans, and cardiac catheterizations--to examine the blood vessels that serve the heart directly. ...Read more
My holter monitor listed 7 late beats under supraventricular ectopy. They happened during sleep. Is that a sinus pause or arrest? Concerning?
Yes, Sort of... Late: Ecg is a 10 sec. Printed tracing of voltage vs. Time comparing different combinations of 10 surface body locations. Holter commonly only 1 or 2 non-standard ekg leads recorded over ~24 hrs or longer. Since inner wall of heart muscle is most susceptible to ischemic damage, surface tracings rarely show clues (e.g. Qrs widening, altered waveform, arrhythmias) until CAD problems induce enough damage. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes and No: EKG can show some changes in Q and S waves and ST. Elevation may suggest old myocardial infarction. Hotter monitor is a device that registers heart rhythms/ rate for an extended period of 24-48 hrs. It's main use is to diagnose various types of heart blocks. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Pacemaker: A holter monitor is a device you wear like an ECG that then records your heart beat for 24 hours or longer. If you had a pacemaker implanted previously, the holter monitor would then be able to determine how many of the heart beats originated from your own heart and how many were caused by the pacemaker functioning. ...Read more
What testing is required to determine if a teen has structural heart disease? 2 runs of Non-Sustained V-Tach on 24 hr. holter monitor & 50 ectopics.
EKG and ECHO: Start with an EKG and an Echocardiogram. This will exclude structural heart disease and worrisome potential arrhythmia substrates. If there is any evidence for abnormality on these then a cardiac MRI would be indicated. In a structurally normal heart the frequency of your ectopics and 2 (assuming short) runs of NSVT are not worrisome or predictive of bad outcomes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Male 22. Get pvc's often. Had ecg, 24hecg, stress ecg, echo, cardiac mri/mra. Safe to ignore the pvc's? Its a quick skipped beat feeling.
Ekg say flat t waves in v4v5v6.Check av block of higher degree. Absolute arrhythmia, atrial flutter.Inferior myocardial infarction, probably old, normal?
