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

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 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

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?

 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

EKG sinus rhythm rapid, prem ventri complexes, doubles of prem ventri complexes, doubles of aberrantly conducted complexes & more what does it mean?

EKG sinus rhythm rapid, prem ventri complexes, doubles of prem ventri complexes, doubles of aberrantly conducted complexes & more what does it mean?

Abnormal EKG: Lots of people have PVCs and some have bigeminy ( doubles) - but the abberant complexes are not usual. EKGs are difficult to read and a cardiologist should review the EKG to ascertain what the irregular beats are ( if it is truly abberant). May do further studies to see where the irregularity is coming from, if abnormal conduction may ablate, use medication or pacemaker. F/u/ w/ cardiologist ...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

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

EKG shows normal sinus rhythm, no acute Ischemic changes and poor R wave progression. What does that mean?

EKG shows normal sinus rhythm, no acute Ischemic changes and poor R wave progression. What does that mean?

PRWP: PRWP or poor R wave progression can be a sign of a few things: most common problem I see is artifactual: simply a matter of suboptimal electrode placement of the EKG either due to sloppy technique or else breast tissue (in women). PRWP can also be a sign of a previous anterior wall MI or heart attack. Lastly, some conduction abnormalities such as left anterior fascicular block can cause this ...Read more

What does NSR RK sinus rhythm low voltage- possible pulmonary disease - ABNORMAL mean  as the reading of my EKG?

Low voltage: may be the result of EMPHYSEMA (The expanded air filled lung tissue actually "extends" over the heart resulting in a lower voltage readings from the CHEST leads.. Just a "guess"....

Any idea what this means? Normal sinus rhythm. Possible Left atrial enlargement Cannot rule out Anterior infarct. Abnormal EKG

Any idea what this means? Normal sinus rhythm. Possible Left atrial enlargement
Cannot rule out Anterior infarct. Abnormal EKG

Could be normal.: Depends upon your clinical situation. EKG's are not very predictive if they are done without a specific purpose in mind. If you have not had any symptoms and this EKG was done as part of a "routine" then it is very likely just an interesting finding without a physical meaning. You should discuss this with the person who ordered the test. ...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

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

Ecg: The finding you describe doesn't have any direct abnormal meaning. It can be related to lead positioning but on occassion can be related some abnormalities of the heart. The most general situation however is that it isn't of much significance. Ask your dr. About it. ...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

What exactly does it mean if an ECG result is that you have "normal sinus rhythm with marked sinus arrhythmia"?

It's normal: This is a normal variant. Sinus arrhythmia is a normal phenomenon. It involves cyclic changes in heart rate during breathing. It suggests a healthy parasympathetic nervous system. ...Read more

Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia.DR impressions on ecg. This means?

Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia.DR impressions on ecg. This means?

ECG interpretation : The "no acute ischemia" part means that there is no heart attack occurring at the moment. The rest really implies that the ECG tracing was not perfect in its appearance. This could be nothing, or it could be related to true heart disease. This type of EKG would need to be interpreted in context: symptoms, physical limitation, other testing. ...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


Rhythm (Definition)
