On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

Possible hemiblock: An abnormal right axis plus minimally prolonged qrs duration defines what is termed a left posterior hemiblock (block of the posteroinferior fascicle of the left branch of the bundle of his). An abnormal right axis can also occur in conditions with elevated right heart pressure and resultant right ventricular enlargement. Normal sinus rhythm means no rhythm disturbance. ...Read more

Electrocardiogram (Definition)

Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more

ECG: That is a common ECG reading which can indicate something is wrong but also can be as it says nonspecific and 'no big deal'. Ask your doctor if there is reason for concern or further investigation. ...Read more

Normal ECG normal oxygen normal chest X-ray normal BP pulmonary embolism??

Not usually: all the things you report are reassuring but there is no clinical context, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, blood gas. The best test for PE is a CT scan of the chest with contrast , however this may miss small emboli and may be negative after 24-48 hours . IT is hard to be certain from the little data provided . Why did you or your doctor think you might have a PE? ...Read more

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what does this mean?

Common reading: "abnormal" because there are non-specific changes which are not specific enough to meet a true diagnosis, but not normal enough to say normal, so somewhat of a soft call or indecisive read, but very common and does not necessarily mean anything. The bottom line, the ECG findings need to be placed in the clinical context in which it was taken, and compared to previous and subsequent ECGs. ...Read more

Is an upright P wave V1 and inverted P wave aVL with tachycardia indicative of ectopic rhythm? other ekg shows biphasic P wave V1, upright P wave aVL

Is an upright P wave V1 and inverted P wave aVL with tachycardia indicative of ectopic rhythm? other ekg shows biphasic P wave V1, upright P wave aVL

If the tachycardia: is occurring at rest with changes in the P wave morphology then it might be an ectopic atrial tachycardia. If it is occurring during exercise it is not diagnostic and may still be a normal sinus mechanism. ...Read more

At 5yr old heart murmur, normal echo @7yrs chest pain, heartrate 61, normal 24 hr holster, abnormal ecg pointing to lvh. Whats goin on?!?

Chest pain: The reason for the chest pain is not probably cardiac. Other causes like acid reflux or musculsketal chest pain that could cause it. The LVH on the echo doesn't mean anything. ...Read more

Re-asking this: normal echo and stress test and holter. Two normal ecg's but third shows late transition with normal sinus rythm. Doppler showed impaied lv relax but everything normal. Normal?

Re-asking this: normal echo and stress test and holter. Two normal ecg's but third shows late transition with normal sinus rythm. Doppler showed impaied lv relax but everything normal. Normal?

EKG: If ekg leads are not placed in ideal position then you could see late transition. From the data you provided you are at low risk for cardiovascular events. Impaired lv relaxation in a 40 year old should not be completely neglected. But it is a minor abnormality. Not to worry much at this point of time. If you have any high BP it should be treated. ...Read more

Heart echo echo ekg holter and 1month event monitor normal.Having skipped beats and chest tightness.whats causing it.Skipped beats notrecoded on event?

Ask details.: Were there isolate atrial or ventricular premature beats on the Holter. Even if there were, if they are infrequent and if a stress-echo test was normal, it sounds as though everything indicates nothing serious. Simply continue to monitor symptoms and, if symptoms worsen, repeat monitoring. ...Read more
