What does sinus rhythm - borderline short pr interval mean on an ecg?

What does sinus rhythm - borderline short pr interval mean on an ecg?

Usually nothing.: The pr interval, the time between the P wave (atria contract) and the qrs (ventricles contract) is typically between 0.12 and 0.20 seconds. If it is a bit shorter than 0.12 seconds but the ECG is otherwise normal, there is generally nothing to be concerned about. If you have episodes of heart racing, you should tell your doctor, as there may be a condition in which you are prone to fast rhythms. ...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

Can you explain this ECG result? Sinus rhythm, Short PR interval, Horizontal axis, RSR' pattern in V1 and V2, low QRS voltages in precordial leads.

Can you explain this ECG result? Sinus rhythm, Short PR interval, Horizontal axis, RSR' pattern in V1 and V2, low QRS voltages in precordial leads.

ECG: I am surprised and disappointed that your primary doctor and/or cardiologist did not discuss this with you in detail. They MUST explain this to you.
That said, you will find readable information on that when you go online or go to the local library.
I would like to hear from you what develops. ...Read more

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?

Two different parts: The PR interval is a measurement of time it takes for the electricity to travel from the top of the heart, to the bottom. A short PR interval means it the electricity travels quicker than expected. Early repolarization means the heart muscle begins recovering quickly after the electricity has traveled through. ...Read more

Atypical ecg? Is says sinus rhythm and low qrs voltage in chest leads (qrs deflection <1.0 mv in chest leads) what does that mean?

Maybe normal: May be normal variant. An old ECG would be helpful. Other things such as pericardial effusion or water around the heart may be a cause. If you have no symptoms and it's not a change from old ECG then prob not an issue. ...Read more

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what does this mean?

Common reading: "abnormal" because there are non-specific changes which are not specific enough to meet a true diagnosis, but not normal enough to say normal, so somewhat of a soft call or indecisive read, but very common and does not necessarily mean anything. The bottom line, the ECG findings need to be placed in the clinical context in which it was taken, and compared to previous and subsequent ECGs. ...Read more

What is the significance of incomplete left bbb? My son is 32 years old ECG showed normal sinus rhythm BP is 135/71.

What is the significance of incomplete left bbb? My son is 32 years old ECG showed normal sinus rhythm BP is 135/71.

Often very little: Incomplete left bundle branch block often means that there's delay rather than complete block in a portion of the heart's wiring. While this can progress to complete block in that portion of the wiring, that still leaves the right bundle unaffected. There are more complicated long-term issues to this, but those vastly exceed our 400-character limit here :). ...Read more

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

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.

I had an EKG done it came there sinus rhythm incomplete right bundle on branch block borderline ECG what does this mean is it serious?

Unremarkable: Incomplete right bundle branch can be a normal variant in 15% of the adult population. It does not carry any significance. Left bundle branch does. Further it refers to the conduction system of the heart, or electrical wiring of it so to speak, and it means your right ventricle gets a signal to pump few milliseconds after the left side. No worries. ...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

My ECG results interpreted that I have normal sinus rhythm, leftvaxis deviation and inferolateral wall ischemi. Can you explain?

ECG: Ecg usually read by a computer program and overread by a doctor. Sinus rhythm is the normal heart rhythm, left axis deviation describes the electrical direction of the heart activity and inferolateral ischemia refers to some changes in the ECG pattern which can be seen with abnormal heart blood flow but are not specific. Talk to your doc to discuss. ...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

Had am EKG today read normal sinus rhythm, septal infarct, abnormal ecg. Please explain what's wrong with me...?

Check with your doc: I assume you are looking at the computer-generated readout on ekg. You have a normal sinus rhythm meaning heart is beating in a normal manner. The septum refers to the part of the heart in between the two ventricles. I don't usually rely on a readout from the ekg machine itself when I interpret an ekg so check with your doctor before getting worried. ...Read more

Had am EKG today read normal sinus rhythm, septal infarct, abnormal ecg. Please explain what's wrong with me...?

Usually a false read: Computerized reading of ecgs are notorious for over-calling "possible septal infarct". This is often due to incorrect positioning of the ECG leads on the chest. I would have a cardiologist look at your ecg, or simply repeat it, with careful attention to proper precordial lead placement. ...Read more

I had a pre-surgical ecg. The result is like : normal sinus rhythm left axis deviation abnormal ecg what does it mean?

Axis: The preponderance of electrical activity of your heart is directed to the left of your body. This may mean your left ventricle is thickened (hypertrophy), or may be caused by a minor conduction delay (left anterior hemiblock). Neither of these are very serious, and will probably not delay your surgery. Ask your doc about your ekg findings. ...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
