How can a ECG go from normal ECG sinus rhythm to unspecified t wave abnormalities within a few hours?

How can a ECG go from normal ECG sinus rhythm to unspecified t wave abnormalities within a few hours?

T waves: Non specific T waves often occur on movement of the leads and are of no significance. It is also possible that they were so minimal that they were not reported in the reading of the first E.K.G. ...Read more

Sinus (Definition)

In anatomy, a sinus is a cavity within a bone or other tissue. Most commonly found in the bones of the face and connecting with the nasal cavities. Sinus (anatomy), description of the general term paranasal sinuses, air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose, including: the maxillary sinuses, also called the maxillary antra and the largest of the ...Read more

What does this mean? — BORDERLINE ECG — SINUS RHYTHM BORDERLINE R WAVE PROGRESSION, ANTERIOR LEADS BORDERLINE T ABNORMALITIES, INFERIOR LEADS

Finding not a diagno: Assuming ur EKG was collected correctly (i.e., the wires & patches were put on correctly), it's not entirely as expected for a person of your age & gender. You have sinus rhythm, but the spikes (R waves) do not progress between the wires as expected, & minor changes in the signals from the front (anterior) & bottom (inferior) part of the heart may be "just you" or signs of (prior?) damage. TTYD. ...Read more

Just curious, how can EKG say I have lvh with normal sinus rhythm & normal axis & no st seg or t wave abnormalitie? 2-d heart ultra sound was normal!

Normal variant: There are "normal variants" in the ekg. There is not just one "normal" ekg pattern but, rather, a range. Teenagers, especially thin ones, may have a pattern that can be confused with lvh. ...Read more

Ecg result sinus rhythm rv conduction delay and some wave abnormalities but normal echocardiography should I be concernd?

No: Rv conduction delay is a normal variant in the vast majority of people. Non-specific st and t wave abnormalities have a host of non-cardiac causes and can also be normal. Bottom line: would not let the ekg concern me. How are you, though? ...Read more

SINUS RHYTHM T V4-V5 CORELATE CLINICALLY?

Need more info: Your question is not clear or detailed enough to answer. It appears you had an ECG which showed normal sinus rhythm which is normal. It apparently also showed some T-wave changes (inversion, flattening, peaked?) in V4-V5, which may have no clinical significance. Please provide more detailed information, including specific result, your age, and why ECG was performed — symptoms, etc. ...Read more

What is a sinus rhythm?

Sinus rhythm: Sinus rhythm is the normal rhythm of the heart. It is produced by depolarization of cells in the 'sinus node' of the right atrium. The signal goes from there around the heart. It first depolarizes the atria and causes P wave and the passes into the ventricles and causes the QRS and T waves. This usually happens at a rate of 60-100 beats a minute. ...Read more

Hi; ECG test explaination ; Sinus Rhythm/ Spetal Infract, Q> 40ms in V2 / Q/R >1/3 in V2, P/PQ 112ms /157ms, QRS : 88MS /QT-QTc 361ms-369ms.

Hi; ECG test explaination ; Sinus Rhythm/ Spetal Infract, Q> 40ms in V2 / Q/R >1/3 in V2, P/PQ 112ms /157ms, QRS : 88MS /QT-QTc 361ms-369ms.

ECG: Q wave in V2 is concerning for a history of an anteroseptal myocardial infarction. The complicating factor is that if the ECG leads are misplaced or the heart is higher or lower than expected, it is possible that the Q wave is actually an S wave, which would not be of concern.
The P/PQ would be a marker for conduction- should be <200ms. QRS should be <120, and QTC should be less than ~440ms. ...Read more

Diagnosis Information 800:Sinus Rhythm, 401: Short PR Interval. What does it mean?

Diagnosis Information 800:Sinus Rhythm, 401: Short PR Interval. What does it mean?

Few Possibilities: Sinus rhythm means that your heart is beating in a normal rhythm and pace. A short PR interval is the decreased distance between two of the waves on an EKG reading of your heartbeat. It can be caused by Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, a junctional rhythm, Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome, high blood pressure, or a normal variant. Talk to your doc about these possibilities for explanations. ...Read more

What does sinus rhythm nd early repolarization pattern in 12 leads mean? Can some explain it me well, please? Help and thanks!

In 400 characters...: Sinus rhythm=normal electrical discharge of cardiac muscle from sinus node in right atrium. Repolarization=cells return to rest after electrical discharge. Early Repolarization=some regions going to resting phase earlier than others. May be harmless in young people or athletes—it appears as upward sloping elevations of the ECG more to the front of the heart. Controversial whether this is harmless. ...Read more

Borderline ECG, These Minor Changes are of Equivocal Significance only. Sinus Rhythm T wave changes in anterior leads.

Borderline ECG, These Minor Changes are of Equivocal Significance only.  Sinus Rhythm T wave changes in anterior leads.

Borderline ECG: I am not certain of the circumstances leading to your having an ECG. T wave changes in anterior leads could be a sign of underlying atherosclerotic heart disease. Risk factors for this include high Blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and 1st degree female relative with heart attack before 60 or 1st degree male relative with heart attack before 50. You need to see a physician ...Read more

What do you suggest if my ECG report says 'sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the right. What does it mean?

Clockwise: It means that when you were born, your heart was rotated just a little tiny bit counter-clockwise in your chest. It has NO clinical significance. Doctors report it to prove that they were awake when they were reading EKGs. Forget it! ...Read more

I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?

Cardiologist: These T wave abnormalities are nonspecific and it's important to compare them to any prior EKG if one is available. If none are available the findings may not necessarily be due to any cardiac pathology and may even be a normal variant in a young woman. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and examine you and recommend further testing like an echocardiogram if deemed advisable. ...Read more

Can someone with a history of bundle branch block convert back to sinus rhythm?

Can someone with a history of bundle branch block convert back to sinus rhythm?

Not a rhythm problem: Bundle branch block is an anatomic or physiologic problem in conducting electrical impulses in part of the hearts conduction system. It is not a rhythm disturbance though it can be related to rhythm disturbances. Bundle branch blocks commonly exist with normal sinus rhythm. ...Read more

What is a sinus rhythm with a right bundle branch block?

What is a sinus rhythm with a right bundle branch block?

Wiring of heart: Sinus rhythm means that the electrical activity that controls the contraction of the heart, starts in the sinus node. Right bundle branch block means that the right bundle (part of the electrical wiring) does not conduct the impulse which changes the appearance of the ekg. Right bundle branch block as opposed to left bundle branch block is usually benign. ...Read more

What does sinus rhythm with nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means? Is it serious?

What does sinus rhythm with nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means? Is it serious?

No not serious: Your rhythm is normal. The nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means that your complexes are wide in no specific (right or left bundle branch pattern) pattern. This can happen as you age, if you smoke, as part of ischemic or other heart disease. It depends on the context in which you had the ECG done. In general, it is nothing to worry about but good to know and possibly have a copy ...Read more

What sinus rhythm with non-specific ST segment changes means? ST segment: depressed V3, V4. Should I be worried?

Non-specific: ST segment and T wave changes are often non-specific, and are often not associated with pathology. Most common causes are tickening of the heart muscle, usually related to high blood pressure. Some medications may also cause non-specific changes. Ask your provider what your ECG means to you. ...Read more
