Thalassemia And Hemoglobinopathy (Definition)

Thalassemia is a type of hemoglobinopathy. It is inherited from one or both of your parents. There are many kind of thalassemia. Most causes anemia (low red blood cell count). Anemia couod be severe requiring blood. Taking iron does not cure the disease. Thalassemia is common in people living in the mediteranian countries, africa, middle east, india, and sotheastern asia such ...Read more

What leads are normal to have T wave inversion? Are P waves always upright?

What leads are normal to have T wave inversion? Are P waves always upright?

EKG: P waves are normally upright. T waves in healthy young individuals are usually upright in leads 1,2, AVL, V4,V5,and V6. Other leads may have inverted T waves and still be normal. These are just guidelines,however as normal variants are common in EKG's, especially in young individuals. ...Read more

What does t wave inversion mean in lead III and avf?

What does t wave inversion mean in lead III and avf?

Depends: In a vacuum, it's a non-specific finding. Isolated T inversion in III is common and normal but when combined with aVf, it can sometimes mean that the inferior wall of the heart isn't receiving adequate circulation. Further testing is indicated. ...Read more

What does it mean if your ECG shows t wave inversion from v1- v4 ?

What does it mean if your ECG shows t wave inversion from v1- v4 ?

Abnormal ECGS: T wave inversions are an abnormal electrical pattern on an ECG which can indicate a heart problem. Most serious would be an indication of ischemia, or lack of blood flow to a part of the heart muscle. This occurs when there are cholesterol blockages in the coronary arteries. Other less dangerous causes for these changes include high blood pressure, leaky valves and thickened heart muscle. ...Read more

What does ECG report saying t wave inversion in III & avf means.

ECG : T wave inversion in leads 2 and 3 doesn't necessarily mean anything significant. It depends on other factors and if the only thing mentioned is t wave inversion likely nothing of concern. ...Read more

What to do if I had an ECG and the letter I got back interestingly evidence of t wave inversion in the septal leads what does this mean?

Cardiology consult: It is possible that the EKG is showing some abnormalities. It could be just a 'normal variant' or it could mean that there is an underlying cardiac problem. A cardiology visit could be appropriate and an echocardiogram to start. ...Read more

What do you advise if i had an ECG and the letter i got back "interestingly evidence of t wave inversion in the septal leads" what does this mean?

Can be normal: An ECG has different waveforms that are labeled with letters. They reflect the electric current in your heart muscle. sometimes the T wave can go in a different direction than expected. It usually points upright like a little hill, but can point downwards. In the septal leads it can be normal. More studies should be done if this is different from other ECGs, or if you have chest pain/ or symptoms ...Read more

Help me understand this. Stress test says t wave liability at rest t wave inversion during recovery non diagnostic for ischemia. St depression <1mm ??

Help me understand this. Stress test says t wave liability at rest t wave inversion during recovery non diagnostic for ischemia. St depression <1mm ??

EKG essentially ok: Sounds like they were determining if you had narrowing of your heart arteries and if that was causing a low blood supply to your heart. Ischemia means low blood/oxygen supply to tissue (in this case the heart). When there is a low blood/oxygen supply to heart tissue ischemia can happen and a t-wave inversion can show this on EKG. ST depres can tell if you have had a heart attack, not in your case ...Read more

Can Lateral T wave inversion and LBBB be caused by Sepsis?

Can Lateral T wave inversion and LBBB be caused by Sepsis?

Coronary disease: In the right context, T wave inversions on EKG are caused by a mismatch in the supply and demand of oxygen to the heart, which is caused by underlying coronary heart disease, but can be worsened by sepsis. A Left bundle branch block can also be caused by coronary disease with injury to the left bundle due to lack of oxygen. This can happen after an acute heart attack (MI). Hope that helps! ...Read more

I am 19 years old, I am physically fit which I do karate 3 hours a week and running everyday. ECG t wave inversion but normal echocardiogram?

I am 19 years old, I am physically fit which I do karate 3 hours a week and running everyday. ECG t wave inversion but normal echocardiogram?

Probably fine but...: The fact that you are so physically active with no problems is great! You are doing an informal exercise stress test 5 times a week. The safest thing to do is to get a formal exercise stress test. Once you pass that, relax! ...Read more

My son who is 18, athletic, bmi 20 has high BP 140/85 and just found out he has t wave inversion v3-6 scheduled for a stress test. What could cause?

My son who is 18, athletic, bmi 20 has high BP 140/85 and just found out he has t wave inversion v3-6 scheduled for a stress test.  What could cause?

Problems: While some Teens will have T wave inversions in the right chest leads as a benign variant, it can also be a sign of hypertensive heart changes and other abnormalities. It is good that he is being thoroughly evaluated. I wouldn't expect the worst at this point. Knowledge gained from testing will reveal your answers & what if anything needs to be done about it. ...Read more

H. Pylori Breath Test (Definition)

H.Pylori urea breath test is used to detect the presence of h.Pylori in the stomach. If present it acts on urea and releases carbon die oxide (co2)and ammonia. The released co2 is measured, and the presence of h.Pylori is confirmed. It is a useful test conducted in about 15 minutes. The sensitivity and specificity of ubt are approximately 88 to 95 percent and 95 ...Read more

Hsv Type 1 And 2 (Definition)

A variety of infections caused by herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2. Type 1 infections are marked by the eruption of vesicles on lips or at the external nares; type 2 by such lesions on the genitalia. Both types often are dormant and reappear during febrile illnesses or even physiologic states such as menstruation. The viruses become latent and and may not ...Read more
