Q Waves Presence On An Ecg
Probably not: By definition, a "significant" q wave must be > than 40 msec in duration or > than 25-33% (depends on the reference) of the r wave height. Even by that criteria, many electrocardigraphically significant q waves are seen in people with normal cardiac echo's and mri's. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
If an ECG which shows irregular ventricular activity with Q waves present does this explain palpitations?
EKG: Possible. Best to discuss ekg findings with your cardiologist. ...Read more
Had a ECG which shows a nonspecific T wave abnormality with pulse of 97bpm. I'm on abilify (aripiprazole). What does the result mean? Pic of ECG in my files.
Talk to your doctor: The reason the study says, "nonspecific T-wave abnormality" is because the reader doesn't have enough information supplied to them by the referring provider so as to make a more SPECIFIC comment on what they're seeing...which is some sort of T-wave abnormality. Abnormalities can be due to NORMAL variants and therefore, of no consequence, or meaningful based on the clinical situation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ecg read nonspecific st & t wave abnormality myocardial changes P waves showed superior axis normal sinus rhythm w/sinus arrhythmia? What does it mea
Q waves leads II, III, v4, v5, v6. ECG reads LVH. Went on beta blockers for sinus tachycardia. Q waves no longer on ECG. What does this mean?
It means that the: quality of one or the other (or both) EKGs is not good. Most likely your body position changed (lying vs. sitting) or leads were incorrectly placed. Heart rate could potentially make a difference as well. At your age it is not concerning in anyway and is most likely an artifact. Don't worry. ...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
Absence: An ecg/ekg is not really a test of flow--unless you counted the rate and assumed a faster one meant more flow. It better assesses the electrical conduction of/through the heart. Certain rhythms (like atrial fibrillation) are associated with less efficient pumping. An echo would be a better test to examine flow / stroke volume / etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
26 w/ chest pain. Was tachy, inferior q wave noted, nonspecific st and t wave abnormality noted. Possible lateral infarct. What does this mean?
What would abnormal septal motion on an echo and poor R wave progression on an ECG for the same patient suggest?
Pointed P waves: P wave is made up of the depolarization of the Right and Left atrium---on and EKG the first !/# of the wave is the RT atrium-----the last 1/3 is the LT atrium and the middle 1/3 is the summation of the RT + Lt if the P wave is notched it usually is Lt atrial enlargement if it is just peaked then it is usually Rt atrial enlargement---enlarging of the atrium especially the Lt can lead to a-fib ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sinus tachycardia~t wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia~abnormal ecg~when compared with ECG of 10-aug-2013 11:38, ~questionable change in qrs?
Non-specific: You need a stress test. It appears that you've had one. If it's been >1 year, it should be repeated now and done with an imaging modality such as echo or nuclear perfusion imaging. A resting ekg is a notoriously inaccurate test, especially in middle-aged women. (that's not sexism, it's science). There are many (most) false positives. ...Read more
Is a pointed P wave of 2mm in amplitude still considered right atrial enlargement on an ECG and if not why?
Possibly: Depends on the whole clinical picture.Get a more detailed answer ›
