No: That is certainly not a reason to go to the ICU. His treatment depends on many parameters: symptoms, change in status, overall health, how the ischemia was diagnosed,associated findings - just to name a few. I would advise him to delay his trip to Mt. Everest and discuss his results with his doctor for a comprehensive treatment plan. Doctors treat people, not test results. ...Read more
Ischemia: No. Lateral wall ischemia means that the left part of the left ventricle is not getting enough blood. Unless otherwise specified, it suggests that there is a blockage, usually chronic, of the circumflex artery. Most such individuals should not be in the icu. If this is reversible ischemia, and the area of ischemia is large, further studies may be needed to evaluate the situation further. ...Read more
Not much.: If you are a 19 y/o female without signs or symptoms of heart disease and you can exercise then i would suggest that their is a small delay in the electrical signal traveeling through the right bundle branch of your heart's electrical system. 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
Poor blood flow: Ischemia is when there is less blood flow or delivery of oxygen to tissue than needed.

Father's stress text revealed abnormal myocardial perfusion imaging due to sm area of mild ischemia in the apex. What does this mean?
Test result: If I presume your Dad is the 87y/o person listed on this then the test result has good implications. The gross implication is that there is coronary artery disease present and it isn't producing a lot of ischemia. In an 87y/o without symptoms or minor symptoms, medical therapy is appropriate. ...Read more
