Low Voltage Ecg Causes
Ecg says low qrs voltage and low qrs voltage in precordial leads? History of chest pain, pvs tachy. What is this caused from? Worried....
ECG EKG: The electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) is a very commonly done heart test. Electrodes on the chest, arms & legs show the electrical activity of the heart. Preliminary interpretation of the test may be done by the computer, then read by a cardiologist. EKGs have to be considered in context of the history & other findings. Low voltage may result from heart disease, lung disease, overweight, etc. ...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
My ECG and blood work are normal but my resting heart can get as low as 41 when sitting. Can a prolonged sedentary lifestyle cause bradycardia?
Dysautonomia - MVP: Possibly due to low resting energy requirements. You may have dysautonomia which is associated with mitral valve prolapse syndrome - neither are usually life threatening but both cause patients anxiety about their symptoms. Read dr. Richard hoffman's book on mvp on amazon. Com. Increase fluid intake, try magnesium supplements. ...Read more
Can your pulse be higher in a few hours after eating a heavy meal, or what elsese can cause this had ECG 2 months ago ok and stress test was good also low BP?
I’ve had a few fainting spells, with spike to heart rate. I’ve been to a cardiologist today for ECG, echogram. All looks good. Dr suspects pot syndrome or low bp. However resting in bed heart rate spiked to 150, no symptoms just headache. Cause for concern?
Need more testing.: Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring sounds like a good idea. It could be that your HR is increasing rapidly as your blood pressure falls - compensatory, to keep your blood flowing, essentially. Episodes of low BP can be documented by ambulatory BP monitoring. HR can be monitored by event recorder. Both are symptom-relevant, too. ...Read more
Potassium is chronically low (3.0) when its checked. ECG shows flattened T waves. Kidneys are functioning normally. What could cause this?
Usually it means: That you are losing too much potassium from either your GI tract or in your urine. It's very uncommon for hypokalemia (low potassium) to stem from poor dietary intake. There are multiple hormonal issues that can cause this and primary issues with the kidney (with noted intact creatinine clearance). Due you have any other metabolic issues like alkalosis? ...Read more
I had an ECG done. Borderline low voltage in frontal leads. Borderline st elevation anterolateral leads means?
EKG: Ekg by itself doesn't mean anything. It has to be matched with the clinical picture. For example hear attack symptoms with st elevation can be active heart attack. Minimal st elevation without any symptoms could be something called j point elevation. Low voltage most of the time are normal but rarely could be seen in fluid around the heart. ...Read more
28 years, male. The QRS complex in the ECG is very low voltage. About 0.5 to 0.6 mV. I'm very lean and not overweight. Chewing tobaco frm last 12 year?
Ecg: There are many reasons for low voltage ecg. You can discuss with your doctor. There are many 'conditions' which can cause this finding as well as we sometimes see it for 'we don't know why.' Your doctor should have a good handle on the 'conditions' possibilities in you. ...Read more
On ECG readings what does occasional premature ectopic complexes mean, a rightward axis, a short pr, and low voltage qrs?
Pre-excitation?: There is a short delay between the times the upper chambers (atria) contract and the lower chambers (ventricles). The two events are seen on the ekg as the p and r waves. If that is shorter than 120 msec, that can mean an accessory pathway that is bypassing the normal conduction system and cause "pre-excitation". Look up WPW or lgl syndrome. See an electrophysiologist about possible ablation. ...Read more
Low qrs voltage in limb leads [qrs deflection 0.5 mv in limb leads] atypical ecg.... Healthy 27 years old what does this mean?
Low voltage: Low voltage on an electrocardiogram (ECG) can be a sign of cardiomyopathy (weak heart muscle), pericardial effusion (fluid around the heart), obesity, lung disease. Thyroid disease, and others. In most cases you would already know that you have these conditions. It is possible that technical issues with the ECG recording created an error. I would repeat the tracing. Glad to look at it for you. ...Read more
Atypical ecg? Is says sinus rhythm and low qrs voltage in chest leads (qrs deflection <1.0 mv in chest leads) what does that mean?
Vent rat 66bpm, pr int 141 ms, qrs dur 89ms, qt/qtc 415/429 ms, p-r-t axes 65 29 37, qtcb 437 ms, atypical ECG low qrs voltage. What does the ECG mea?
The major finding is low voltage. Causes of low voltage include:
pericardial effusion, pleural effusion, overweight, emphysema, pneumothorax, contrictive pericarditidis, previous massive mi, end-stage dilated cardiomyopathy, infiltrative myocardial diseases — i.e. Restrictive cardiomyopathy due to amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, haemochromatosis; scleroderma, myxoedema (severe low thyroid hormone). ...Read more
It's like someone is hugging me round torsoe for breathing. Oh! My ecg reads: possible left atrial enlargement, QRS low voltage, abnrml t wave abnrmlty?
See cardiologist..: 45 y/o female says, It's like someone is hugging me round torso for breathing. Oh! My ECG reads: possible left atrial enlargement, QRS low voltage, abnormal T wave. Abnormality? Yes, could also be having Atypical Angina for a woman at mid-life. Need to see Cardiologist for proper evaluation and management. No panic just see PCP/ Cardiologist. ...Read more
Can you explain this ECG result? Sinus rhythm, Short PR interval, Horizontal axis, RSR' pattern in V1 and V2, low QRS voltages in precordial leads.
I am surprised and disappointed that your primary doctor and/or cardiologist did not discuss this with you in detail. They MUST explain this to you.
That said, you will find readable information on that when you go online or go to the local library.
I would like to hear from you what develops. ...Read more
DX neurocardiogenic syncope ECG: Left atrial enlargement, Low voltage QRS, Borderline ECG Normal sinus rhythm. Is the ECG normal?
Left atrial enlargement.
Is regular sinus rhythm, left axis deviation, low voltage complexes and intraventricular conduction defect a normal or abnormal ecg result?

My ECG shows low limb voltage. What does it mean? . What are effects? . All of my blood sugar cholesterol reports normal. What care should be taken? .
Borderline ecg: A 'borderline ecg' is one which is not definitely normal, nor is it definitely abnormal. There are many possible causes from technical through physiologic all the way to the reading doctor just couldn't bring him/herself to just say normal. ...Read more
ECG: There are a myriad of causes of abnormal ECG tracings. Any cardiac abnormality that is signficant will usually cause some change in the ECG. Changes in blood chemistries can alter the ECG, high blood pressure, heart attack, lung diseases and a long list including things that really don't mean much but change the appearance of the ECG recording... ...Read more
P waves: If p waves are not seen on the surface ecg, either they are not present or the vector direction of the forces doesn't produce an adequate size p wave to see in the leads available. ...Read more
Normal: It can be perfectly normal. The classic pathological cause is elevated potassium but this would generally only occur in renal failure or overdose of a supplement. In people with acute chest pain, the very earliest sign of a heart attack can be a brief and temporary "hyperacute" peaking of the t wave. For most, though, it's a normal finding. ...Read more

I sometimes have a negative -t in lead 3 on ecg but other times it is positive, it changes every time what can cause this?
ECG: T wave changes as you describe are usually due to changes in vector forces from lead placement and respiration. Other variables also can come into play. In general we don't get excited by them. ...Read more
Depends: But if truly a P wave, it depends on how pointy, as in height. P waves with an amplitude greater than 2.5 small boxes in lead 2 or 1.5 boxes in lead V1 suggest right atrial enlargement. If you've had an echocardiogram (sound study of the heart) like is mentioned in your "Procedures" then this would be more visible on this study. It may not mean anything. ...Read more
Some leads: Only the ECG waves generated by information from the loose lead will be affected. ...Read more
ECG: T waves inverted in lead 3 are a nonspecific finding and in and of themselves not a big deal. They must be judged in the context of the whole 12 lead study and clinical information. Ask your Doc about your study and meanwhile don't worry about the test result. ...Read more
