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

No such thing: Borderline ekg is like borderline diabetic or borderline pregnant.. No such thing! ekg shows the electrical impulses in the heart. There is a wide range of normal patterns; normal! there also other electrical deflections that are clearly not normal, i.E heart attack, hypertension, etc. I would recommend the ekg being viewed by an expert like an electrophysiologist, if your doctor is unsure. ...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
