24hr holter moniter showed heart rate 45-170. 1% were supraventricular paced beats. Is this normal or SVT?
Probably within norm: you need to discuss with your doctor about this holter report -- ...Read more
Rhythm "any regular recurring motion, symmetry may be generally defined as a movement marked by the regulated succession of strong and weak elements, or of opposite or different conditions, this general meaning of regular recurrence or pattern in time may be applied to a wide variety of cyclical natural phenomena having a periodicity or frequency of anything microseconds ...Read more

My ecg result reads "sinus rhythm @ axis, nonspecific intraventricular conduction delay". Is this a normal reading?
Results of a 24-hour holter test: 9 VPC's, 381 APC's, 3 nonsustained atrial tachycardia 4-9 beats each, at 100-102 beats/min. Is this normal?
DX neurocardiogenic syncope ECG: Left atrial enlargement,Low voltage QRS, Borderline ECG Normal sinus rhythm. Is the ECG normal?
No: Abnormal. Low voltage Left atrial enlargement . ...Read more
HR slightly fast : A hr of 104 at rest (sinus tach) is slightly higher than the normal range of hr's between 60-100 at rest. That said, there could be plenty of reasons that this coud happen (like anxiety, dehydration, caffeine, pain, etc). Also anemia, hyperthyroidism , breathing or pulmonary problems could result in physiologically appropriate faster hr's. Inappropriate sinus tach considered if no cause seen. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ecg , cardiac echo, heart enzyme , chest ct, cardiac angio ct, all ok.Still resting heart pulse 53-62.Increase when move.Exclude cardiac issue?
At the er for chest pain hospital monitor says couplet pvcs amd sv rhythm. What does sv rhythm mean? and are couplet pvcs dangerous?
Not necessarily: SV="supraventricular rhythm" which is normal. PVCs are "extra beats" that sometimes lead to the feeling of a thump or irregular heart beat. By themselves, extra PVCs or couplets of PVCs are not dangerous. Some people get them when they drink caffeine or smoke cigarettes. They aren't an indicator of a heart attack, but if they happen during a heart attack, they can be a sign of impending problem ...Read more
Sinus Rhythm with RBBB with LAFB withBifascicular Block,left axis deviation. HR 59 BP normal,little dizzy?
Dizzy: You have some evidence for heart electrical blockage on your EKG. This make at higher risk for heart block. Would expect pauses or slower rate if problem. Is dizziness spinning or do you feel you might black out? First symptom vertigo second more concerning. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My Holter Monitor showed 1596 Bradycardia events (under 50 bpm) in 48 hours and 2356 pauses between 2.02-2.5 seconds. Lowest Heart rate was 27 .
Talk to cardiology: I am assuming that you have symptomatic bradycardia, and that was the reason you had a Holter study done. Now, I don't know how long your HR stayed at 27, but even 40 is too low. This isn't something that can wait, call your doctor and develop an action plan today. If after hours ask to speak to the on call doc for that office. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ekg say flat t waves in v4v5v6.Check av block of higher degree. Absolute arrhythmia, atrial flutter.Inferior myocardial infarction, probably old, normal?
Holter- 24 run superventricular events 20 beats 88bpm 3 beats 99 BPM 5 beats 86bmp. Longest rate 128 BPM 0:01:48. Echo, ecg, angio normal. Concerned?
Holter showed pacs, sinus tachycardia, sinus arrhythmia. Cardiologist says other than the tachy otherwise normal. Sinus arrhythmia/pacs are normal?
Yes: Especially in young patients.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes, by tracing only: It is an abnormal ekg by reading of the tracing but what is most important is the ekg in relation to a good history and clinical exam. Questions to ask: do you have a past history of heart disease, high BP, diabetes, smoking? Do you have chest pain/jaw pain/pain down L arm? Is your BP high on exam? Any of these findings along with the above ekg is a MAJOR concern. Please talk with your doctor!! ...Read more
My heart structurally fine on echo, MRA, ECG, MRI, holter monitors. Is it unlikely my frequent PVCs will turn into Ventricular tachycardia/death?
Unlikely: With a normal heart based on all the studies you have had, PVCs are usually benign and not like to precipitate ventricular tachycardia. The caveat is that you are on diltiazem as well as amitriptyline both of which can affect the heart rhythm. Thus you should continue to have your EKG monitor. All the best to you! ...Read more
