Cardiology consult: Left ventricular hypertrophy on echo and an abnormal ECG should be eval'd by cardiology who can help decide if this is truly abnormal or if it is due to an "athlete's heart", or a normal variant. A detailed family history will be needed -- be prepared. Patients are often nervous at the time of a consult. Bring a list of questions, and another person or pen & paper to take notes. ...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

My resting ECG report shows t wave abnormality, consider anterior ischemia and incomplete rbbb. Should i be concerned? I see a cardio in 2 weeks.

ECG abnormality: T wave abnormalities are usually non-specific, especially if you are an otherwise healthy young woman. The computer read-out should always be confirmed and checked by the physician, so you will have more specific info after you get the opinion of the cardiologist. Of course, if you have cardiac symptoms like chest pain with exertion then a more urgent eval is a good idea. ...Read more

What does it mean if the ECG showed signs of ischemia in the postural valve?

What does it mean if the ECG showed signs of ischemia in the postural valve?

Posterior wall?: You probably meant to say posterior wall, instead of posterior valve. But it probably means there is a blockage in the coronary artery that is feeding the posterior wall of your heart. This can be confirmed with a coronary angiogram and potentially fixed with coronary angioplasty and stent placement or else coronary bypass surgery. ...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

How dangerous is an ECG tracing- right nundle branch block septal wall ischemia for an 8 yo/ female child? She's having squeezing chestpain recently.

How dangerous is an ECG tracing- right nundle branch block septal wall ischemia for an 8 yo/ female child? She's having squeezing chestpain recently.

Possibly Dangerous: I am a pediatric cardiologist. I agree with the other answer--i would strongly recommend you take your child to see a pediatric cardiologist as soon as possible if you haven't already. The diagnosis of bundle branch block and ischemia is serious, but it depends where it is coming from. Machines are not good at interpreting pediatric ecgs. Again, please see a pediatric cardiologist asap. ...Read more

Ischemia (Definition)

Ischemia is a symptom in which a person does not have enough blood supply to a part of the body, making that part of the body "ischemic". For example, in a heart attack, a coronary artery is blocked so blood cannot get to the heart muscle beyond the blockage point. The heart muscle lacking ...Read more
