Septal Myocardial Infarction Ekg
Variable: This varies depending on the location, severity and type of myocardial infarction. Some patients have no ECG changes at all, known as electrically silent myocardial infarctions, a phenomenon more common in diabetics. Other patients have severe changes in their ECG tracing with severe arrhythmias which can be fatal. ...Read more
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more
Ekg say flat t waves in v4v5v6.Check av block of higher degree. Absolute arrhythmia, atrial flutter. Inferior myocardial infarction, probably old, normal?
It is hard to: Say based on your description, but it sounds abnormal of course, you should see if there is a clinical correlation. Review it with your doctor and compare it with old ekgs. This will help determine the next best step. ...Read more
Hospital: From the medical records department of the hospital where the patient was treated. ...Read more
No: It's early repolariztion, a normal variant.Get a more detailed answer ›
Possible inferior myocardial infarction probably old. Possible abnormal ecg...Does this mean I had an attack? I am diabetic and workout daily.
Q waves on an ekg suggest prior damage.
If there were symptoms, enzyme elevations helps confirm the timing and degree.
Compare with any prior ekg.
Continue your risk reduction approach, but discuss with your pcp. ...Read more
Anterolateral myocardial infarction probably old came up on the ecg. My doctor said its nothing to worry about, can I have an easy to understand defin?
Stupid Computer: The computer reads on ekgs are designed to catch as many heart attacks as possible but they are notorious for overcalling heart attacks. A trained cardiologist can sort the matter out using experience, training and a set of rules. ...Read more
A heart attack: The septum is the wall that separates the right from the left side of the heart. Myocardial infarction, a heart attack, is caused by a blocked artery in the heart. If the artery blocked supplies the blood to the septum the result is called a septal myocardial infarction. ...Read more
Unique to person: In many occations not painfull at all. Most common symptom is chest pressure, heavyness, oppresion, shortness of breath not "pain", sometimes indigestion like symptoms. "silent" heart attacks are common in patients with diabetes. Still today about 50% of people die on their first heart attack. In many occations thinking" its not my heart", " its reflux", "indigestion", "my hiatal hernia"anything but. ...Read more
Various: The st segment is a portion of the electrocardiogram. A myocardial infarction can be described as st elevation myocardial infarction or non-st elevation myocardial infarction depending on the appearance of the electrocardiogram. Management of the 2 types of heart attack are somewhat different. ...Read more
Multiple methods: Myocardial infarction (mi) is suspected by symptoms usually including chest pain. The conclusive diagnosis is established based on a combination of specific abnormalities of the electrocardiogram (ekg) and presence of certain heart enzymes that leak into the blood during an mi. The most common enzymes are called ck-mb and troponin. ...Read more
Many: The location is a major factor: left main blockage is most likely to be fatal. Proximal left anterior descending is also often fatal. Patient factors such as on-going tobacco use, uncontrolled hypertension, diabetes, anemia, pre-existing heart or kidney failure and advanced age all raise the risk. ...Read more
Multiple & varied: Chest pain, radiation to the arm, neck, jaw, sense of impending doom, sweating, feeling of weight on chest, tiredness, shortness of breath, feeling faint or dizzy etc. About a quarter of the mis especially in diabetics may have no recognizable symptoms. Sudden death may be the only symptom in some. ...Read more
Heart Emergency: Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & the risk of death. ...Read more
? MI?: 18 year old boys don't have MI's almost ever. If they are feeling chest pain it is almost invariably reflux wherein stomach contents are being regurgitated up the esophagus and it is called heartburn. A key to diagnosing a true MI is that the pain is exercise induced-I.e. It gets worse when you're walking up the stairs or whatever and it gets better when you stop. If that is so, get to ER pronto. ...Read more
Many approaches: There are many type of interventions to prevent heart disease. Eat a diet lower in saturated fats and chiolesterol. Increase your intake of fiber, fruits and vegetables. Start an exercise program, 30 minutes 5 days a week. See a doctor. Check your blood pressure, cholesterol and fasting blood sugar. Talk about family history. Know your risk levels and get started on therapies to modify them. ...Read more
ST elevation...: Many believe that an st elevation myocardial infarction means that it is a transmural infarct (involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). Some people refer to nstemi (non st elevation myocardial infarction) as non-transmural infarct (not involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). These definitions are somewhat debatable but thought you may be interested. ...Read more
Many poss causes: An inferior mi refers to a heart attack on the inferior wall of the heart muscle. Almost all heart attacks are the result of fatty deposits on the inside of arteries that break open and cause clotting which will blocks the artery (and the blood from flowing to the part of the heart the artery feeds). Family history, fatty diet, smoking, high blood pressure all contribute to this process. ...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
Symtoms of MI: Chest pain, pressure pain, radiates to arms and jaw. Sob along with nausea and other GI symtoms. Symptoms first manifest with activity. Some patients may have atypical presentation like heart burn. Patient are usually pale, anxious and perspiration is present. Ecg most of the time is helpful. ...Read more
Angina can be quite severe and respond to rest, oxygen, nitroglycerin. And fully recover with no muscle death.
The pain fibers are the same source.
Some myocardial infarction can be asymptomatic all the way to the worst, ominous, pain ever!
there is heart muscle death as the defining entity
may need surgery or intervention. ...Read more
Chest pain: Typically the pain of angina pectoris resolves with rest and lasts just a few minutes at most. Heart attack pain typically is a resting pain and is like angina but worse. They are both caused by myocardial ischemia but the angina ischemia is reversible. The heart attack ischemia results in death of some of the heart's muscle. ...Read more
Not contraindicated: It's commonly done to accurately measure "i&os" (total volume intake and output). ...Read more
Yes but: Yes it's possible but not common. The mechanisms are superimposed coronary spasm or thrombosis that has partially dissolved at the time of study or supply/demand imbalance as occurs during surgery or in the presence of anemia. All of the above mechanisms have been demonstrated at various times. ...Read more
Do patients with untreated stable angina develop unstable angina leading to myocardial infarction?
Depends: On level of medical treatment. But, yes unstable angina and acs can affect any one. ...Read more
Please explain why is it more important to give aspirin than heparin after a myocardial infarction?
Can you briefly describe what is ischaemia? And is myocardial infarction the same with heart attack?
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
When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; ...Read more
