Minimal Voltage Criteria
Computer jargon: In patients over the age of 40 the amplitude of the QRS wave on the ECG measured in different sectons of the ECG has a high probability of accurately predicting abnormal thickening of the heart muscle, a condition common in people with longstanding high blood pressure. Under the age of 40 these criteria lose their predictive power and may or may not accurately predict this problem. ie I bet all ok ...Read more
What is "Horizontal axis, RSR' pattern in V1 and V2, low QRS voltages in precordial leads" suggestive of? IRBBB? Brugada? Malposition of electrodes?
None of the above: Your question seems desperate in trying to find a diagnosis. The EKG, while unusual, are just findings. In the absence of a pattern if symptoms, they mean nothing. While an rSR' pattern could be from a BBB (bundle branch block) it could be from lead placement as well. Brugada is a syndrome of different findings over time. A single EKG can't make a Dx. Also no mention of QT, & low voltage suggests ...Read more
ECG reads "cannot rule out previous anterior MI" and " minimal requirements met for current anterior infarct, abnormal comp to previous ECG"?Explain?
Clinical correlation: Basically your ECG likely shows low voltage in the anterior precordial leads, which may be secondary to left ventricular hypertrophy, anterior infarct pattern, or secondary to body habitus. SO since your have had an echocardiogram and a CT angiogram, both of these tests would be able to corroborate if ECG is consistent with "anterior infarct" or not, I suggest u ask ur cardiologist to correlate. ...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

Myocardial perfusion imaging with Tc-99m Sestamibi after exercise
revealed no scintigraphic evidence of hemodynamically significant
ischemia. Medium-sized, mid to basal inferior wall
mild-to-moderate mostly fixed perfusion deficit, excep
Stress test: A stress test with myocardial perfusion imaging is a way of detecting whether the heart muscle is getting insufficient blood supply because of coronary artery disease. It can be normal even with lots of coronary plaque, because it only detects severe narrowings. If there is a "fixed" perfusion defect that generally suggests a scar in the heart muscle from prior heart attack. Need more info. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Meaning of the diagnosis from an EKG, 12 Lead, Initial: Sinus bradycardia, Low voltage QRS, Possible Septal and Inferior infarcts, age undetermined.
3 things: Sinus bradycardia means the heart rate is less than 60 Low voltage QRS could be associated with many things, including obesity, emphysema, lung disease, pericardial effusion, infiltrative cardiomyopathy, etc Possible septal and inferior infarcts age undetermined: there is some evidence of possible heart attacks on the septal and inferior walls of the heart, and cannot determine the age of events ...Read more
Myocardial. Medium perfusion defect moderate intensity in basal mid inferior basal inferior partial reversibility. Ef54%. TID .97 abnormal redegenson.
Abnormal stress test: A "myocardial perfusion defect with reversibility" indicates that there is something reducing the blood supply to the heart muscle. Most commonly this would be because of atherosclerosis causing a blockage in the coronary artery. The next steps depend on the medical details. Additional testing, such as a catheter angiogram, may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

A 14x6x6mm non-enhancing signal abnormality inferior to the basal ganglia, no high rcbv, te 135ms cho/naa ratio - 1.3: heterotopia? Low grade?
Serial Imaging : Your MRI could be consistent with low grade neoplasm or a benign finding. The best option in these cases where it is unclear is to follow the area closely with repeat MRI at say 3 month intervals. If this is benign it will stay the same. If it grows it is likely a neoplasm. ...Read more

Abnormal ECG: 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
Sinus tachycardia~t wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia~abnormal ecg~when compared with ECG of 10-aug-2013 11:38, ~questionable change in qrs?
Non-specific: You need a stress test. It appears that you've had one. If it's been >1 year, it should be repeated now and done with an imaging modality such as echo or nuclear perfusion imaging. A resting ekg is a notoriously inaccurate test, especially in middle-aged women. (that's not sexism, it's science). There are many (most) false positives. ...Read more

During sleep background activity consist of symmetrically bisynchonous, fairly developed medium voltage 4-5 Hertz theta waves seen best posteriorly. ?
Normal for age: I suspect you've left out some additional information but this appears to be normal for his age to me. The posterior rhythm they mention may be a tad slow but then, again this is during sleep with eyes closed so it's fine. Are they looking for seizures or is he very lethargic? Looks like pneumonia is under condition so I'm wondering if he's battling with that now or that's a previous condition ...Read more
Which value of cardiac output is considered high?My stroke volume 90ml, by 75 bpm, that means cardiac out:6, 7l/min;cardiac index would be 3, 5l/min*m2.Tx
Cardiac Output: Numbers such as you list can be normal especially in a smoker. Numbers alone without clinical correlation don't necessarily mean a lot. You should discuss these data with the physician(s) who know you and your specifics. ...Read more

Please translate my results; EKG (Sinus Brady, HR 71- Low voltage in precordial leads. -Left atrial enlargement. - Nonspecific T- abnormality.) - 8/25/2017 EKG?
Question? Consult!: The EKG findings must be considered in context of age, history, and symptoms. These little boxes are not good for answering specific patient case problems. Consider a cardiology consultation here on HealthTap. The kind of consult where you ask for help within the next 24 hours ("inbox") works particularly well because it enables emailing back and forth with the details. ...Read more
