Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Depends: Sinus bradycardia can be normal in a fit individual. Septal infarct age undetermined may also be a normal variant, but also possibly indicate previous injury to the heart. You might want to consider getting further evaluation, such as a stress treadmill ECG test. Depending on various associated healthy issues, this might need to be combined with imaging (nuclear or ultrasonography). ...Read more

What should I do if my ECG says sinus bradycardia with premature atrial complexes?

Nothing: If you are an athlete, this may be normal. As long as you are not symptomatic then this is usually not dangerous. Normal sinus rhythm is 60-100 beats/min. Sinus bradycardia is < 60 beats/min. Very common in young athletes. Was the ECG otherwise normal? ...Read more

Ecg/ekg results: sinus bradycardia with short pr interval, what does this mean?

2 things: sinus bradycardia means you have a resting heart rate less than 60, can be normal finding in young, healthy or athletic people, can also be pathologic depending on how low and the clinical scenario. Short PR can mean accelerated AV conduction which is essentially normal, or could me a pre-excitation suggesting presence of a bypass tract (WPW) but usually accompanied with other findings. ...Read more

Rate <60 & Purkinje: fiber damage within endocardium. Any rate below 60 BPM is defined as bradycardia (not unhealthy). The abnormal conduction & LAD both occur as a result of damage to the Purkinje muscle fibers (look this up) within the endocardium of her heart muscle; nearly alway a result of atherosclerosis & heart attacks within the inner wall of the left ventricle-the portion most susceptible to ischemic damage. ...Read more

No pacemaker: You haven't described anything that would constitute an indication for pacing which, in general, would consist of symptoms of passing out (or feeling like you could pass out) while your heart rate is exceptionally low (usually 30 seconds or pauses of >5 seconds.). ...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

Slow heart rate is a symptom in which a person's heart rate (the number of heart contractions per minute) is less than normal for the average person of the same size, doing the same activities. For adults, slow heart rate usually means a rate below 50-60 beats per ...Read more
