What does it mean when an ECG says borderline and extreme right superior axis deviation. Slight high lateral repolarization disturbance consider Ische?

What does it mean when an ECG says borderline and extreme right superior axis deviation. Slight high lateral repolarization disturbance consider Ische?

EKG: Consider ischemia which is not enough blood getting to heart because of blocked arteries or an aortic stenosis or old heart attack. Would be good to know how old you are and what other problems you have to give better answer. Happy to do 2nd opinion now. ...Read more

Minimal left lateral and high lateral repolorization disturbance on EKG and short pr interval?

Minimal left lateral and high lateral repolorization disturbance on EKG and short pr interval?

Depends.: If the pr is really short ( less than 0.12 s) or there is a delta wave could represent a ventricular pre-excitation syndrome such as wpw. Need specific numbers to answer that. Repol is often normal in your age group. ...Read more

What does it mean if ECG showed short pr interval. & flat or low neg t in avl & v6. & high lateral and lateral repoloarization disturbance (mild) ?

What does it mean if ECG showed short pr interval. & flat or low neg t in avl & v6. & high lateral and lateral repoloarization disturbance (mild) ?

Different things: A short pr interval means that the heart beat is either initiated in a part of the atrium which is distinct from the sinus node (where it usually starts) or is being conducted with accelerated velocity to the ventricles. The other changes are "non-specific" and can be due to anything, like sodium, potassium or magnesium levels, medicines, lead position, skeletal variation and many other things. ...Read more

Heart palpitations and dizziness. Ekg showed- shortened pr interval, and high lateral/lateral repolorization disturbance?

R/O LGL Syndrome: The association of tachycardia and a short pr interval on an ekg may indicate an abnormal electrical pathway in the heart that can cause frequent palpitations and a sustained rapid heart rate. There are two syndromes called wolf-parkinson-white(wpw) and lown-ganong- levine(lgl) that are associated with short pr and tachycardia . Medication or ablation can prevent the palpitations and tachycardia. ...Read more

Ecg showed episodes of 'high take off' / early repolarization, cardio said this is a normal finding in healthy men. I read it causes Vt?!

Early repolarization: Years of believing early repolarization is benign don't get invalidated by one observational study. Too early to be nervous about it till lots more data and subset detail develops. ...Read more

What is early repolarization- high take off? What are the risks? Is it a desiese? Can it lead to a heart attack?

ECG : Early repolarization is an ECG finding which is usually benign. As you note chest pain in your presentation, you should ask your doctor if it is a benign finding in you. ...Read more

24h ecg showed episodes of early repolarization/high take off. 25 male, echo normal, normal ecg normal. Am I at risk of VT? VF? I get pvcs

24h ecg showed episodes of early repolarization/high take off. 25 male, echo normal, normal ecg normal. Am I at risk of VT? VF? I get pvcs

Answer: 5-10% of the population have early repolarization (ER) on EKG, the vast majority of whom never have symptoms. However, there have been shown to be certain patterns on the EKG that predict higher risk for VT and VF. And other predictors for VT and VF need to be checked for. Would see a cardiologist and obtain copy of EKG from medical records of the facility prior to appointment. ...Read more

What does repolarization mean for an ECG reading?

ECG: The ECG shows recording during depolarization and in repolarization of the heart. These are the two electrophysiologic changes that generate the ECG on the cellular level. ...Read more

What does sinus rhythm nd early repolarization pattern in 12 leads mean? Can some explain it me well, please? Help and thanks!

In 400 characters...: Sinus rhythm=normal electrical discharge of cardiac muscle from sinus node in right atrium. Repolarization=cells return to rest after electrical discharge. Early Repolarization=some regions going to resting phase earlier than others. May be harmless in young people or athletes—it appears as upward sloping elevations of the ECG more to the front of the heart. Controversial whether this is harmless. ...Read more

Is early repolarization dangerous I have pvcs mvp and er?

Is early repolarization dangerous I have pvcs mvp and er?

No: Early repolarization is not dangerous , it is a benign ECG finding that reflects how your heart resets itself after an electrical event (which precedes the mechanical event of contraction ). Likewise, mvp in the vast majority of cases is not dangerous and the pvc's associated are more a nuisance than a dange. The exception is in rare cases when mvp is assoc with significant regurgitation. ...Read more

Repolarization of the cardiac muscle but I don't understand why muscarinic antagonist causes it?

Cardiac repolarizati: Changes in cardiac repolarization occur with the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Medications altering the ANS, or the hearts response to it, will thus, effect repolarization. ...Read more

Is there any relationship between mvp and st elevation(early repolarization) that i have?

ECG: Both mvp and early repolarization are quite common. It would take a lot of data acquisition to prove that they were associated and i don't think it will be done soon. You see both independently so often that i doubt there is an association. ...Read more

What does short PR interval and Early repolarization combination on ECG signify?

Abnormal EKG.: Possible cause of a short PR interval on EKG include AV junctional rhythm, Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome (pre-excitation with a short PR interval and a normal duration QRS interval) or Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome (pre-excitation with a short PR interval, a long QRS interval with a delta wave often with paroxysmal tachycardia or atrial fibrillation. An electrophysiologist can help with management. ...Read more

I was told my son's EKG has a slight st elevation with repolarization. He is 11 years old an an extremely active athlete. Should he stop hockey?

Probably not: It sounds like you're referring to normal variant ekg finding, common in young males, called "early repolarization." there's no evidence firmly linking this with future cardiac risk. If your son has had absolutely no symptoms with sports (i assume not), may not need anything more. If any concern, or ekg not convincingly benign to the doctor, an echo will rule-out structural heart disease. ...Read more

Causes of borderline repolarization abnormality (ST dep & abnormal T)? Rest of ECG normal and echo normal.

It is likely you are: referring to a computer interp. of your EKG. The computer program is slanted to indicate any potential abnormality no matter how insignificant. Ask a human with EKG experience (many FP and IM MDs do not possess any skills in reading EKGs they just read the English) to interpret the EKG for you. Odds are it is completely normal for you. You can attach it to an inbox consult with me if you want. ...Read more

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

Two different parts: The PR interval is a measurement of time it takes for the electricity to travel from the top of the heart, to the bottom. A short PR interval means it the electricity travels quicker than expected. Early repolarization means the heart muscle begins recovering quickly after the electricity has traveled through. ...Read more
