Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

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 more

Concern? Abnormal ECG "Cannot rule out Inferior infarct , age undet". Normal nuc stress echo. Rapid HB, VT, some chest pain, dizzy exercise, no blocks

The EKG is most: likely over diagnosed by a computer algorithm designed to produce a diagnosis if anything is even a little bit off. It takes a human with years of experience to be able to determine if the findings are clinically relevant or significant. With a normal nuclear stress and echo it is unlikely you have had an infarct. Discuss your concerns with your health care provider for further reassurance. ...Read more

I had an ECG, exercise stress ECG, 48-hr holter ECG, and an echo. Would prolonged QT show up on all of those tests?

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

Exercise stress test, 24 hour holter monitor, echo doppler test--which is done first?

Exercise stress test, 24 hour holter monitor, echo doppler test--which is done first?

For what?: These tests provide different information and have different indications. Stress tests are to look for evidence to support a diagnosis of symptomatic blocked coronary arteries. Holtor is used to evaluate for dysthymia. Echocardiogram is useful to look at the heart valves and other features. Choosing the right test depends on what symptoms you are having. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what to do?

ECG: That is a common ECG reading which can indicate something is wrong but also can be as it says nonspecific and 'no big deal'. Ask your doctor if there is reason for concern or further investigation. ...Read more

Bloodwork chest xrays ekgs stress test echo`s..24hr and event holter came back good. Still having annoying pacs/heart fluttering any thoughts on this?

Bloodwork chest xrays ekgs stress test echo`s..24hr and event holter came back good. Still having annoying pacs/heart fluttering any thoughts on this?

Palpitation: Fluttering or palpitations can occur due to irregular heart beat like pacs, but some patients can feel it even with a completely normal rhythm. Rest assured that in the absence of a persistent abnormal rhythm pacs, even with fluttering is not dangerous. If you feel it frequently and there get too annoying talk to your dr about non-pharmacological lifestyle changes or medication to suppress them. ...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

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

If the tachycardia: is occurring at rest with changes in the P wave morphology then it might be an ectopic atrial tachycardia. If it is occurring during exercise it is not diagnostic and may still be a normal sinus mechanism. ...Read more

M37.Have low HDL/high TriG.Did tests, results ok.ABI, EKG, Chest XRay, UltraSound Carotid+whole abdomen,Echo Treadmill Stress. repeat tests how often?

M37.Have low HDL/high TriG.Did tests, results ok.ABI, EKG, Chest XRay, UltraSound Carotid+whole abdomen,Echo Treadmill Stress. repeat tests how often?

Family history?: much of this hinges I feel on your family history. If you have parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or siblings with coronary artery disease under the age of 55 then I repeat testing in 5 years, otherwise probably in 10 years. There is no consensus on this: therefore this is my own opinion as interventional cardiologist. ...Read more

What all does a heart ultrasound, holter and heart stress test detect?

What all does a heart ultrasound, holter and heart stress test detect?

Many things. : The echocardiogram or heart ultrasound, gives an accurate picture of the heart's anatomy. An ekg demonstrates the cardiac rhythm. A holter moniters the cardiac rhythm over time- say 12 or 24 hours. These measure different aspects of heart function and are helpful in assessing heart function thoroughly. ...Read more

17 male. Chest pain when excersising. Had echo, ecg, stress ecg, 24 holter normal. Having MRI will this rule out cardiac pain? Must be cardiac?

17 male. Chest pain when excersising. Had echo, ecg, stress ecg, 24 holter normal. Having MRI will this rule out cardiac pain? Must be cardiac?

Probably not Cardiac: Need more description of the chest pain, but, with all the above studies being normal, and considering your age, most probably your pain is of non-cardiac causes, most commonly musculoskeletal. Also exercise induced asthma can present as chest pain with exercise. A consultation with a lung specialist &/or trial of bronchodilators before exercise may be helpful. Best to discuss w ur pediatrician. ...Read more

Stressechoresults: abn stress ECG at 9.1mets, normal exercise stress echo with no evidence of stress induced myocardial ischemia. What does this mean?

Probably normal: The ECG is accurate about 70-80% of the time in diagnosing cad. Adding stress echo or nuclear imaging improves accuracy to above 90% when patient reaches his or her target rate. ...Read more

Electrocardiogram (Definition)

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

Stress Test (Definition)

A stress test is a cardiac test which can include walking on a treadmill and monitoring your heart while you are walking. They can also inject you with a nuclear material and do a more comprehensive scan on your heart to check for blockage. They can also do a chemical stress test which omits the need to ...Read more
