What Does A Blip On Ekg Mean
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
EKG low voltage: Low voltage means that what are called the qrs complexes are smaller than usual. There are many possible reasons, including a barrel chest, copd, cardiomyopathy, infiltrative diseases, severe hypothyroidism, pericardial effusion, obesity, to name a few. Sometimes no significant underlying reason is found. Discuss with your doctor for clarification of your particular situation. ...Read more
MRI Perfusion: Perfusion MRI is an advanced MRI technique which shows whether blood flow to regions of the brain is normal or abnormal. In the picture above, in the right upper part of the image, there is a dark area showing an area of brain stroke in the frontal lobe. The technique requires injection of gadolinium contrast through an IV. In addition to stroke, it can also be used to diagnose tumors or infection ...Read more
Many reasons : Axis on an ECG refers to the direction ("vector") of the over all electrical forces generated during each heart beat, as seen from the body surface. It is automatically calculated by the ECG machine, but sometimes the machine can't compute the axis, and it is labeled "indeterminate". It may or may not reflect underlying heart disease, so please have the ECG checked by a cardiologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many causes: Elevated t-waves can have a variety of causes. Heart conditions, such as poor blood flow through coronary arteries, can cause elevation. So can abnormalities of different chemistries in your body, for example, an elevated potasium level. Many of these things have many causes, so you need to work with your doctor to first find out what abnormality might be causing it, and then why you have that. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does probable anterseptal mi age undertiminate Q waves v1-v2 neg t's mean on a EKG what does it mean?
Very detailed read: Q-waves on a particular set of leads tells us you had a heart attack some time in the past (age indeterminate = don't know when). The v-leads tell us it was in the septum. T-waves indicate acute myocardial infarction (mi=heart attack), and you didn't have those. Overall, i would say you had heart trouble in the past, but were doing ok at the time of this ekg. ...Read more
