Nonspecific St And T Wave Changes
What could cause transient ST\T wave abnormalities on my EKG...t wave inversion specifically. My EKGs always change some with T inversions.
Left ventricular: Left ventricular strain for a variety of possible reasonss: from left ventricular hypertrophy to strain, electrolyte abnormalities, abnormalities of the sodium channels. ...Read more
What could be the cause of change in T wave on EKG? One showed v1-3 inverted but another show upright T wave in v3?
T wave changes: 18 years of age T wave changes may be normal. I would suggest to have complete 12 leads EKG for proper evaluation ...Read more
Abnormal ECG yesterday mon specific t wave repeat today rsr probable normal variant anterior t wave abnormality non specific please help I'm scared ?
Nothing serious: The findings you describe in your ECG are both nonspecific. Such findings do not mean that there is anything wrong with your heart. "Nonspecific T wave changes" are frequently seen in normal people, and often disappear. They are sometimes due to electrolyte changes or other transient causes which do not amount to heart disease. Please do not worry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What would low voltage qrs and non specific t wave abnormalities in lateral leads mean on borderline EKG. Doctor was not concerned?
Need old EKG: Low voltage means the tracing showed low amplitudes (i.e., the "spikes" were not very tall). The nonspecific T wave abnormality refers to an upward or downward deflection after the spike. Without an old EKG, it is hard to tell if the T wave abnl is new or not. This pattern is seen often in healthy younger people, which (given ur age) is probably the case; however, a new T wave abnl can indicate MI ...Read more
26 w/ chest pain. Was tachy, inferior q wave noted, nonspecific st and t wave abnormality noted. Possible lateral infarct. What does this mean?
My ECG result last year and this year showed the same result: poor R wave progression,v1-v3 with nonspecific st-t wave changes. Should i be concerned?
ECG: that ECG reading is a nonspecific finding and without knowing more about you the best course is to advise you to ask your doc if any cause for concern is raised in you by that result ...Read more
My EKG states st and t wave abnormalities and sinus tachycardia and consider inferno lateral ischemia. . My doctor didn't seem concerned. Should i be?
Family practice : The ekg machine is very sensitive in their readings. Their interpretation is often miss read. It must always be read by the physician for a final reading. Many times we compare it with previous ekg , s. Ask your dr to explain it if you are still concerned. ...Read more
Borderline ECG, These Minor Changes are of Equivocal Significance only. Sinus Rhythm T wave changes in anterior leads.
Borderline ECG: I am not certain of the circumstances leading to your having an ECG. T wave changes in anterior leads could be a sign of underlying atherosclerotic heart disease. Risk factors for this include high Blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and 1st degree female relative with heart attack before 60 or 1st degree male relative with heart attack before 50. You need to see a physician ...Read more
40 y/o fm w slight chest paini had an EKG which read normal sinus n abnormal t wave. Echo n stress perfect. Should i still be worried. Why t wave abno?
Benign abnormality: T wave abnormalities are relatively common and very non-specific. Could just mean mild high blood pressure. If the echo and the stress test (i assume it was a walking stress test) were perfect, you should not be worried. Very small (almost no) chance that those 2 tests are wrong and ekg right. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
EKG shows normal sinus rhythm, no acute Ischemic changes and poor R wave progression. What does that mean?
PRWP: PRWP or poor R wave progression can be a sign of a few things: most common problem I see is artifactual: simply a matter of suboptimal electrode placement of the EKG either due to sloppy technique or else breast tissue (in women). PRWP can also be a sign of a previous anterior wall MI or heart attack. Lastly, some conduction abnormalities such as left anterior fascicular block can cause this ...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) ?
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
Slightly peaked t waves in v2 and v3 on 12 lead EKG but all else normal. Is this ok or hyperkalemia/ mi?
Should i go to ER if doc just did EKG and it shows flat or low t in v6 and short pr interval with minimal high lateral & lateral repoloarization dis.?
NO: These are non-specific and have no significance to an 18 year old if you're otherwise well. ...Read more
Is the following significant in and of itself? T wave inversions noted at faster HR. ST depressions with T wave inversions noted during maximal HR.
Not really: Not really. Those are just two different ways to describe the same abnormality seen in the ekg. ...Read more
EKG : Often the computer that prints the ekg's will type these comments on the top best to review it with either you regular physician or someone that reads them regularly, likely a cardiologist. Sometimes these are incorrect and in any case often not indicative of any disease. ...Read more
How do you distinguish between T wave inversions and deep S waves or PVC's?
Are T wave inversions always consecutive in PE or can they be one offs?
Abnormal EKG: T wave and S wave are 2 distinct wave form in EKG tracing, PVC has its own characteristics and looks different from the normal QRS complex. T changes may or may not be present with PE ...Read more
T waves: T waves are very variable. Likely you have no reason to worry. There can be some specific T wave abnormalities but they are uncommon. ...Read more
Had abnormal EKG. T wave inversion in lead V1, V2 and V3. Mild mitral regurgitation. And they think right ventricular hypertrophy. Is this normal?
You answered that : You correctly described your ECG as abnormal, so, no it's not normal. The ecg changes you described don't necessarily mean RVH. And mild MR doesn't cause RVH so I wonder if you're a bit confused. If you had an echo and it didn't show RVH then you're done. Ask your provider to explain the findings. ...Read more
