Q Wave In Inferior Leads
I have chest pain more on swallowing, 12 lead ecg. Small Q waves in inferior leads plus v5 and 6, what could be wrong?
Chest pain: It appears you are already under care of a physician having had an ekg done. If you have q waves, it may indicate old myocardial infarction. But we have to take into account your symptoms, your risk factors before deciding on further testing like a nuclear stress test, or a cardiac cath. Your primary care physician or cardiologist would be able to guide you ...Read more
What does isolated narrow Q wave in lead 3 mean, flat t waves across all leads, mild sigmoid septal bulge. Does this all relate to hole in heart
ECG finding: Inferior Q waves on ECG indicate possible prior inferior wall myocardial infarction (heart attack). To be significant, the q wave must be at least 25% or more in amplitude compared to following r wave, and be 1 mm wide. If it does not meet these criteria, it is a "borderline" q wave, and is less likely to indicate a prior heart attack. ...Read more
EKG diagnosis: When a piece of heart muscle dies, it no longer has electrical activity. This shows up on an ekg as a q wave. If someone clinically has a heart attack but the ekg never evolves q waves, it is (by definition) a "non-q wave" mi. ...Read more
Heart Damage: A "q wave" is seen on an electrocardiogram (ekg) several of which are recorded during a stress test. Q waves may be very small and not carry much significance or may be larger and suggest that heart damage by a heart attack has occured at some point in time. Further testing and imaging of the heart may be required to determine if the Q wave is significant. ...Read more
EKG : The ekg has waves with amplitude and direction. A q wave reflects a lack of electrical force in a certain direction. This lack of force has some correlation when a change in pattern with a loss of muscle as is seen in heart damage like a heart attack. ...Read more
Q vs. non-Q: When a heat attack causes a full thickness ("transmural") heart attack, the ekg reveals the resulting scar by inscribing a "q" wave in the leads that correspond to the damaged area. If the heart attack was not transmural or occurred in an area not seen well on ekg, there may be no q waves. If you had no symptoms at the time of the heart attack (25-50% of all attacks), it will be "unrecognized.". ...Read more
My dad had a MI 3mths later on ECG the report said inferolateral st sagging and 'surprisingly no q wave' what does this mean?
26 w/ chest pain. Was tachy, inferior q wave noted, nonspecific st and t wave abnormality noted. Possible lateral infarct. What does this mean?
Ecg: Q waves mean either electrical force going away from the lead axis being examined or lack of force in the direction of the lead. This is often due to heart muscle damage but not always. ...Read more
EKG finding: A Q wave is a finding on the electrocardiogram seen after a completed myocardial infarction (heart attack). In some patients with heart attack, the electrocardiogram will demonstrated q-wave. In other patients, a Q wave will not develop. In general, Q wave myocardial infarctions are larger and associated with st elevation in the early phase of the heart attack. ...Read more
Q wave= full thickness myocardial necrosis
non q wave= partial thickness or subendocardial necrosis
subendocardial infarcts more common. Full thickness can result in myocardial rupture or an acute ventricular septal defect. Rupture- tamponade-death sequence. 50% of people still die on their first heart attack mostly because of not calling 911 or reaching er within minutes of the infarct. ...Read more
Cardiology.Wat relarevance dose a Q Wave have on lead 3 of an EKG.Where dose intrascapula fit is this part of another condition? and affects the heart
None.: It is not uncommon for young adults to have Q waves. These are normal and are the first activation of the bottom of the heart, between the main pumping chambers, called the interventricular septum. After that, it splits into Left and Right sides but that first Q wave is picked up as the initial beat of the ventricles before spreading out into the main heart muscles that make the main Signal. ...Read more
It depends: It depends on the location and size of the Q waves in relation to the other parts of the qrs complex. Ask your doctor to look at the ECG and let you know. ...Read more
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
T wave: It can mean abnormalities in repolarization in the area of the septum. There is a legion of possible reasons for such T wave inversions. ...Read more
I have t wave abnormality in anteolateral leads also came positive in tmt test.But i completed the test without symptoms.Any problem with heart?
Unsure: Cannot say yes or no. Would need further evaluation. ...Read more
T abnormalities: As the description says, they are non specific and do not cause alarm by themselves and need to be correlated with clinical symptoms. ...Read more
No: It won't.Get a more detailed answer ›
P waves usually biphasic in V1 but become only upright with exercise? T waves in leads V2-3 also change with every ekg.
Lead placement can: make a significant difference in the morphology of the EKG waveforms just as body position can. Sitting or lying while resting makes a significant difference from standing while exercising. None of what you describe sounds worrisome at all. ...Read more
Is it bad if the P and the R wave are the same amplitude and shape on all leads from an ECG and what does this mean. Amplitude for both was 3.5 mm.
ECG: It would be highly unlikely for what you describe to happen on an properly recorded ecg. There are a few possibilities should it be real but it is very unlikely ...Read more
The P wave on my ECG was pointed including on leads V1 and 2. The amplitude was 2 mm. What are the possible causes?
Normal: This sounds like a normal finding.Get a more detailed answer ›
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
I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?
Cardiologist: These T wave abnormalities are nonspecific and it's important to compare them to any prior EKG if one is available. If none are available the findings may not necessarily be due to any cardiac pathology and may even be a normal variant in a young woman. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and examine you and recommend further testing like an echocardiogram if deemed advisable. ...Read more
