Pacemaker Ekg Interpretation
Ecg interpretation states ventricular pacemaker no other interp. Possible. How would you diagnosed?
Ecg: When all the ECG complexes are caused by an electronic ventricular pacemaker, there isn't much else you can read into or get out of the study with any degree of reliability. ...Read more
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
What to do if I have had an echocardiogram and an EKG done would they have been able to tell if I need a pacemaker through that?
Can someone explain telemetry monitoring? What is a telemetry floor? My mother was a cardiac patient with a pacemaker and type 2 diabetic with an abnormal EKG and elevated cardiac enzymes. She was found unresponsive and cold and had suffered a m.I. She a
What does it means when ECG stated : atrial-ventricular dual-paced rhythm? Is it abnormal? I'm wearing dual chamber pacemaker.
Interpreting hard: It is hard to interpret an ECG once a pacemaker is implanted. Your electrophysiologist (EP - or cardiologist who implanted the device) wd b a better source of information. In general, A-V dual-paced rhythms on ECG mean that both wires on the pacemaker r working or firing. Thereafter, interpreting the pattern of 'squiggles' on the ECG requires knowledge of ur pre-implant ECG & ur specific condition ...Read more
My father's heart rate is more than 70 but ECG report is showing some blockage even after 8 days of AVR Surgery. Does it still require pacemaker?
Went to er with panic attack, EKG normal. Had panic attack again, this time I saw automatic interpretation say abnormal EKG. Is this very bad?
Artificial pacemaker: Artificial (implantable) pacemakers are mostly regulated by a sensor that recognizes motion. It's similar to the sensor that changes your phone/ipads display from portrait to landscape, based on the direction of the device. There are other sensors, such as ones that measure the density of blood in the heart and chest motion (simulating breathing). Get your routine pacemaker maintenance checks. ...Read more
Pacemakers: Difficult to know for sure, over 100, 000 pacers are implanted/year in the us; chances there are well over a million patients and likely multiple millions with the devices living in the us. ...Read more
Pacemaker Implant: A pacemaker is about the size of a small pager, but 1/2 as thick. It's implanted, under the skin, through a small incision, just under the collar bone. Two wires are threaded through a vein that travels under the collar bone. The wires follow vein back to your heart. Procedure takes about an hour and overnight hospital stay is common. Mild sedatives are and local pain control is usually used. ...Read more
Pacemaker: In a permanent implanted pacemaker the battery is an integral part of the can. When we change the battery we are changing the entire device leaving only the leads in place. The battery is not installed separately from the device. ...Read more

You cannot know: The diagnosis of pacemaker syndrome can be difficult and complicated. There is no single easy test for you to determine on your own if you have this. It requires a careful determination by your cardiologist or electrophysiologist who implanted your pacemaker. If you disagree with their assessment, you can always seek a 2nd opinion. ...Read more
Rhythm Support: A pacemaker is a device which sends electrical signals to the heart triggering heartbeats when needed. There are many ways to implant and configure a pacemaker; it may beat the top chambers (atria), lower chambers (ventricles) or both. Some systems stimulate both the left and right ventricles together. Pacemakers generally treat abnormally slow heart rhythms and certain types of heart failure. ...Read more
No: The batteries in all current devices are lithium based and operate much like duracell (alkaline) batteries. They cannot and should not be recharged, and are in fact welded into the pacemaker device itself. Rechargeable devices are on the horizon but will not likely be available in the next 3-5 years. ...Read more

Talk with your dr: Perhaps you can discuss it with your doctor and make some financial arrangements -- and get the pacemaker. ...Read more
Electrical activity: Ekg is a graph of the electrical activity of the upper and lower chambers of the heart. Electricity travelling toward an ekg electrode records a positive deflection and away records a negative deflection. It offers a clue into various heart problems including heart attack, ischemia, heart rhythm disturbances, enlarged or abnormally thickened heart and electrolyte abnormalities to name a few. ...Read more
