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

Is there a question: here?? Sounds like you should know something about EKG's which I learned as an INTERN at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston from Dr Joseph Reisman a prominent ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHER....and Cardiologist. The ELG is just a bunch of SQUIGGLES on a piece of graph paper and is by ITSELF MEANINGLESS without the CLINICAL SITUATION of the patient!!!! Sounds like you need to speak with your Cardiologist ASAP ! ...Read more

ABN ECG after Bypass: Doctor prob means there's no ECG changes from a year ago. ECG was prob abn before Bypass, & worse after. Important questions are answered on Stress test & Echo, & not unreasonable to have a year after Bypass. Important questions are whether you experience unexplained breath shortness or chest/arm discomfort w exertion. Once an ECG is abnormal one can only compare with previous ones(weak test) ...Read more

Can ECG detect ischemia?how accurate is it?Her Dr. Did not explained to her what type of ischemia it is because she doenst have any symptoms.

Can ECG detect ischemia?how accurate is it?Her Dr. Did not explained to her what type of ischemia it is because she doenst have any symptoms.

ECG: There are typical ECG changes associated with ischemia. When correlated with an appropriate symptom scenario these changes are highly accurate for the presence of ischemia. In a random situation those changes are less specific for ischemia. ...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

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
