The part about lateral ischemia is probably artifact due to lead placement coupled with a normal age related variant. Nothing to worry about. ...Read more

What is lateral wall ischemia?

Poor blood flow: Ischemia is when there is less blood flow or delivery of oxygen to tissue than needed.

This is usually related to blockage in the flow of blood in the coronaries, blood vessels that feed the heart muscle. ...Read more
