Recent repeated abnormal EKGs reflecting a stress pattern. Mild chest pain, sob. Echo showed mild concentric left ventricle hypertrophy. Now what?

Recent repeated abnormal EKGs reflecting a stress pattern. Mild chest pain, sob. Echo showed mild concentric left ventricle hypertrophy. Now what?

Chest pain: Consult with your physician about the next step. There is a possibility that they will want to do a stress test to rule out any coronary artery disease since you are having chest pain and SOB and your 2D echo and EKG reflect left ventricular hypertrophy. It is always best to consult with the physician who ordered these tests as they ordered these tests for a reason. Good luck! ...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

Very slight ST elevation in leads V4-V6 on ECG. all else normal... Is this an MI?

Very slight ST elevation in leads V4-V6 on ECG. all else normal... Is this an MI?

Ecg: Very slight ST elevation is likely nothing to be concerned about in and of itself. The waves on an ecg need to be interpreted in light of clinical situations as there are multiple possible reasons for most variations from absolutely normal on these tracings. In a 19y/o minimal ST elevation is highly unlikely to represent an MI unless associated with specific symptoms. ...Read more

Slight chest pain and shortness of breath. EKG normal,troponine normal,CK-MB normal but CPK slight increased to 202 with limit 190.What that means?Tx

Probably nothing : Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside at either end. And if you exercise hard, this is common. ...Read more

Non-Sustained Polymorphic VT in a structurally normal heart with normal baseline ECG & Normal stress test. What can it be?

Non-Sustained Polymorphic VT in a structurally normal heart with normal baseline ECG & Normal stress test. What can it be?

Well : I can be a side effect of medications or from medication overdose or electrolyte or calcium and balance or an arrhythmia originating in the wiring of conduction system of the heart.This is a very serious heart condition can be fatal it requires the diagnosis treatment and management of a cardiologist in person ...Read more

20 year old male in good shape, EKG abnormal but echo and stress test normal. Left arm tingles randomly, cardiac related?

20 year old male in good shape, EKG abnormal but echo and stress test normal. Left arm tingles randomly, cardiac related?

Heart illness: The normal stress and echo are very reassuring. Arm tingling is not specific. Pericarditis can exist with abnormal ekg and atypical symptoms. What is the exact baseline ekg abnormality? ...Read more

19 yo. Normal Ekg Ecg and chest X-ray . Inconsistent Pain in left side of chest. could it be aortic dissection. Had the tests a month in between.

19 yo. Normal Ekg Ecg and chest X-ray .  Inconsistent Pain in left side of chest.  could it be aortic dissection. Had the tests a month in between.

Other causes: At you age, most causes of chest pain are due to musculo skeletal causes. An example would be muscular strain or a rib fracture. Sometimes the cause can not be determined. If you are having an irregular heart beat, feel faint, or are experiencing respiratory difficulty, then a follow up exercise test or holter EKG may be indicated.

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

On ECHO Right Ventricle was 'Normal in size, normal in systolic function. However I noticed it said Rvidd 3.0 with a range of (.7-2.5 cm) but normal?

On ECHO Right Ventricle was 'Normal in size, normal in systolic function.  However I noticed it said Rvidd 3.0 with a range of (.7-2.5 cm) but normal?

Likely normal: Most echo reports have a measurement section and a decriptive section . Your report indicates a discrepancy between the two. Typically the echo reader will put in a summary - if that indicates RV as normal you do not have to worry. The measurements have an inherent error and the reader usually will correct for it ...Read more

It may be the heart!: You need to have your heart checked by a good cardiologist. The best test for you is a session of multifunction cardiogram. It is accurate, affordable and stress, drug and radiation free! good luck! http://en.M.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/multifunction_cardiogram. ...Read more

What is the probability of sca with a normal ekg(normal heartbeat, just fast), normal echo shows normal function, normal stress test/normal blood work?

What is the probability of sca with a normal ekg(normal heartbeat, just fast), normal echo shows normal function, normal stress test/normal blood work?

Low: The probability of sca is low in the young, healthy population. Unless you have a family history of sca or a genetic predisposition to sudden death, your risk should also be low. There is a risk calculator that can be applied to assess sca risk in patients undergoing surgery. It was developed by dr. Gupta and can be accessed at www.Qxmd.Com. ...Read more

Had abnormal EKG. T wave inversion in lead V1, V2 and V3. Mild mitral regurgitation. And they think right ventricular hypertrophy. Is this normal?

Had abnormal EKG. T wave inversion in lead V1, V2 and V3. Mild mitral regurgitation. And they think right ventricular hypertrophy.  Is this normal?

You answered that : You correctly described your ECG as abnormal, so, no it's not normal. The ecg changes you described don't necessarily mean RVH. And mild MR doesn't cause RVH so I wonder if you're a bit confused. If you had an echo and it didn't show RVH then you're done. Ask your provider to explain the findings. ...Read more

Re-asking this: normal echo and stress test and holter. Two normal ecg's but third shows late transition with normal sinus rythm. Doppler showed impaied lv relax but everything normal. Normal?

Re-asking this: normal echo and stress test and holter. Two normal ecg's but third shows late transition with normal sinus rythm. Doppler showed impaied lv relax but everything normal. Normal?

EKG: If ekg leads are not placed in ideal position then you could see late transition. From the data you provided you are at low risk for cardiovascular events. Impaired lv relaxation in a 40 year old should not be completely neglected. But it is a minor abnormality. Not to worry much at this point of time. If you have any high BP it should be treated. ...Read more

HR rises & falls twice (Up, down, up, down) during each set of inspiration & expiration. Shown in ANS tests. Variation of normal Sinus Arrhythmia? or?

HR rises & falls twice (Up, down, up, down) during each set of inspiration & expiration. Shown in ANS tests. Variation of normal Sinus Arrhythmia? or?

Sinus arrhythmia: Sinus arrhythmia only reflects an exaggeration of a normal behavior. Everyone's HR tends to vary slightly with the normal changes in pressure in the chest with breathing. Your HR should increase with inspiration and decrease with expiration. If this variation is quite obvious, then we call it a "sinus arrhythmia," but it's not generally clinically significant. ...Read more
