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

Sir I am 30 male weight 83kg, I have t inversion in ECG and mild concentric lvh;kindly suggest any advise I have BP 140/82?

Sir I am 30 male weight 83kg, I have t inversion in ECG and mild concentric lvh;kindly suggest any advise I have BP 140/82?

Weight loss, BP f/u: You are mildly hypertensive by BP readings but your ECG /echo reports already show signs of LVH at age 30. This implies that the effects of high BP have been causing some strain on your heart. The ECG also implies some repolarization changes that could show ischemia. A stress test (stress echo or mpi given the abnl baseline ecg) might help. This could also serve to start you on exercise progra. ...Read more

What does it mean if ECG showed short pr interval. & flat or low neg t in avl & v6. & high lateral and lateral repoloarization disturbance (mild)?

Different things: A short pr interval means that the heart beat is either initiated in a part of the atrium which is distinct from the sinus node (where it usually starts) or is being conducted with accelerated velocity to the ventricles. The other changes are "non-specific" and can be due to anything, like sodium, potassium or magnesium levels, medicines, lead position, skeletal variation and many other things. ...Read more

Hello Dr I have recently been diagnosed with mild leak in value. No Med prescribed. My ecg was done 4 times thru the process and all were abnormal. Is?

Valve Leak: Mild valve leaks does not necessarily cause trouble
Not sure how it was diagnosed but way to investigate it is with Echocardiogram (like ultrasound of the heart) and not with Electrocardiogram (ECG)
Check with your doctor is you need further assessment for your condition ...Read more

What does it mean when an ECG says borderline and extreme right superior axis deviation. Slight high lateral repolarization disturbance consider Ische?

EKG: Consider ischemia which is not enough blood getting to heart because of blocked arteries or an aortic stenosis or old heart attack. Would be good to know how old you are and what other problems you have to give better answer. Happy to do 2nd opinion now. ...Read more

58 years old and ECG says RBBB+LABH and have had 2 episodes of slight pain sensations in the chest lasting for few minutes. Do I need to go for angiog?

Depends: The ECG is non diagnostic for coronary disease. The pain is noght quite typical for cardiac pain either but your doctor would discuss your options first and may want to consider a stress test of some sort to further risk stratify you. ...Read more

What is meant slight ST Depression in ECG Report?

What is meant slight ST Depression in ECG Report?

Many things: Including nothing. Depends on the pattern of the depression (up-sloping or down-sloping) and the exact amount of the depression in millimeters. The doctor who ordered the ECG is in the best position to interpret it. It can be a normal variant, or it can be evidence of a lack of blood flow (ischemia) in that part of the heart. Also depends on your cardiac history. Call your doctor to explain. ...Read more

Very unlikely: Mild mitral stenosis would not usually manifest on ekg, but if it was more significant and longstanding, the wave that would be abnormal is the p wave. ...Read more

Is 120 MS of QRS normal interval for ECG test? Can this be a sign of MVP mild MR (which I have) or other valvular diseases?

ECG: A 120ms QRS duration is an intraventricular conduction delay and maybe a left or right bundle branch block. Either can be found in patients with MVP but can also be seen in other conditions. ...Read more

Ischemia.: The unfortunate thing here is that young women can potentially have heart disease - we often overlook this possibility. So we should not take this finding of reversible ischemia on your stress test lightly, despite your high HDL. More testing is needed. ...Read more

Atypical chest pain: Pain on left side not always from heart, it could be from the bones and cartilage, esophagus, stomach and from colon too.

I am experiencing escape beats at times, I had my ECG and reveald pvc's but n0t that often. My 2d echo is ok but with slight mitral backflow.?

I am experiencing escape beats at times, I had my ECG and reveald pvc's but n0t that often. My 2d echo is ok but with slight mitral backflow.?

Very common-no worry: Occasional escape beat/pvcs occur in virtually every person at some point. For an adult, the heart beats on an average 115000-120000x/day, I am actually quite amazed it is not having more irrgular beats. Slight mitral backflow (regurgitation) is also common. Normal echo is reassuring. If no symptoms such as dizziness/chest pain, I would not worry. If u r still concerned, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Reactive airway: Perhaps you're describing reactive airway disease or asthma that's sensitive to cold & your bedroom environment (I assume that's what you mean by "at rest"). Some people w/asthma report worsening or chest tightness w/exercise & cold exposure. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic.

Is there signs & symptoms for right ventricular mild hypertrophy? And if the pulmonary HTN was42.57mmHg 8months ago, what will ECG+Echo show now? Please

Depends on the cause: In both cases the answer to your questions depends upon what is the cause. In general, right ventricular hypertrophy can lead to symptoms of right ventricular failure- leg swelling, right sided belly pain (from your liver becoming congested
with blood), and abdominal swelling (from ascites fluid).

My doctor heard what she called a "slight heart murmur" and did a ekg which was normal. Now she's ordered me an Ecg and im so nervous! What's the diffe?

Echocardiography: Echo is ultrasound to visualize the heart valves and structure and further analyze the cause of murmur. EKG is does not visualize the heart but only analyze the heart rhythm and cannot diagnose the source of a murmer. Don't worry as hearing a murmer does not always mean a heart disease as some murmers are physiologic i.e normal. Good luck with the echo ...Read more
