Obesity And Abnormal Ekg
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
Flipped T wave in lead 3, no other abnormalities. ECG was done due to palpitations, increased HR, and lightheadedness. Normal echo. Is this okay?
Flipped T in III: Normal variant. Would check tilt test to see if heart rate increases when tilted , as you may have POTS postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome Also check TSH/T4 , check for H pylori if any abdominal discomfort, and less commonly consider ANA, sed rate, DS DNA and ACE metanephrines and 5HIAA., if all else negative ...Read more
Heart palpitations and dizziness. Ekg showed- shortened pr interval, and high lateral/lateral repolorization disturbance?
R/O LGL Syndrome: The association of tachycardia and a short pr interval on an ekg may indicate an abnormal electrical pathway in the heart that can cause frequent palpitations and a sustained rapid heart rate. There are two syndromes called wolf-parkinson-white(wpw) and lown-ganong- levine(lgl) that are associated with short pr and tachycardia . Medication or ablation can prevent the palpitations and tachycardia. ...Read more
Causes of borderline repolarization abnormality (ST dep & abnormal T)? Rest of ECG normal and echo normal.
It is likely you are: referring to a computer interp. of your EKG. The computer program is slanted to indicate any potential abnormality no matter how insignificant. Ask a human with EKG experience (many FP and IM MDs do not possess any skills in reading EKGs they just read the English) to interpret the EKG for you. Odds are it is completely normal for you. You can attach it to an inbox consult with me if you want. ...Read more
Abnormal EKG and high chlolesterol and high-risk family members on both sides had heart problems and cancer. What could this mean?
Stress ECG abnormal but coronary angiogram normal, any other test (e.G echo) to ruled out underlying heart disease?
Stress tests: Have higher false positive (and false negative) rate than we'd like to admit. Try getting a session of multifunction cardiogram instead. It is a very accurate stress, radiation and drug free heart test! http://en.M.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/multifunction_cardiogram. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an ECG, exercise stress ECG, 48-hr holter ECG, and an echo. Would prolonged QT show up on all of those tests?
Majority: Yes, if you are concerned for prolonged QT or there is a family history, all of those tests except for an echo should show prolonged QT syndrome. An echo measures the function of the heart. Prolonged QT is calculated from an ECG looking at the part of the heart that makes up the QT interval in the heart beat. An ECG, stress ECG and Holter ECG should be able to pick it up. ...Read more
17 yr... heart palps, pounding... Normal echo, ecg and stress test. Holter is being analyzed now. Does that rule out most of Sudden Death disorders?
Yes. These tests: should identify your risk for sudden death accurately. Family history would be important as well. I am certain your health care provider has evaluated you fully. ...Read more
Will Autonomic Function Testing also show any possibly heart abnormalities? Can ANS dys. Cause abnormal EKG in otherwise health heart? Connected?
No, only some: issues as a function of the methods used. As embodied Soul?Mind?Brain?Body creatures sending >1,000,000 orders/sec brain?body with similar feedback, the real Hi-Tech is always inside. Medical technology is always, in varying degrees, low-tech, simplistic reflection of limited aspects of human behaviors with limited insights. Can ANS drive EKG changes? Absolutely, study: https://goo.gl/gIycBT. ...Read more
Normal ekgs, event monitor(pvc's), normal echo and stress test.Normal blood tests and thyroid function.Scared of sca/ha?!..Any reason to worry?!
Sca/ha: Those findings bode well. If there is no history of sca/ha in your family, spend your time worrying about something else. ...Read more

I'm 21 with tachycardia issue, had an echo, ekgs, cardiac CT angiogram, bloods, chest ct, 24hr holter. Keep getting sweaty and tight in the chest and sometimes skipped beats eating dinner. Causes?
Heart rate 40-50 BPM results from stress test, echocardiogram, ekg, 24hr holter monitor all "normal" could my slow heart b due to genetics/other factors?
Can hyperventilation cause temporary impaired lv relaxation? My echo and stress test and EKG and CT were normal. Ef>55 and e/a .78.
Results sound good: Impaired lv relaxation (did that show up on your echo?) is not a disease and does not necessarily cause any symptoms. I woudn't focus on that. Your negative tests are very reassuring. Chest pressure and hyperventilation are common anxiety symptoms. Are you getting help for that? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
