What does a borderline EKG mean?

What does a borderline EKG mean?

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

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

What does a borderline EKG report mean?

What does a borderline EKG report mean?

Borderline ECG: This is often the computer's interpretation of an ECG that doesn't fit strict criteria that are programmed into the computer. These "abnormalities" are often very subtle and require a human being to over-read the ecg. It is important to remember that an ECG is a lab test just like any other and needs to be interpreted in terms of the patient who is in front of the md. ...Read more

What does borderline EKG, minimal St depression mean?

Who read your EKG?: Often times there will be a computer reading on top of your EKG which is often incorrect. If your doctor viewed the EKG, particularly your cardiologist, and stated it was normal, it is most likely an overread by the computer. ...Read more

Had a borderline ekg today what's that mean?

Had a borderline ekg today what's that mean?

Subtle: There are things in medicine that are normal, and there are things that are abnormal. Borderline is that area that is not completely normal, but does not quite rise to the level of calling it abnormal. I would see your doctor to tell you the specifics of your ekg result. ...Read more

What does it mean when EKG comes back borderline horizontal axis for age?

What does it mean when EKG comes back borderline horizontal axis for age?

Usually nothing: This is likely just secondary to the way your heart is positioned in your chest, for example in a taller person the heart lies more vertical in the chest cavity, and is more horizontal in a shorter person. Ask you doc about your particular ekg findings. ...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

What would low voltage qrs and non specific t wave abnormalities in lateral leads mean on borderline EKG. Doctor was not concerned?

What would low voltage qrs and non specific t wave abnormalities in lateral leads mean on borderline EKG. Doctor was not concerned?

Need old EKG: Low voltage means the tracing showed low amplitudes (i.e., the "spikes" were not very tall). The nonspecific T wave abnormality refers to an upward or downward deflection after the spike. Without an old EKG, it is hard to tell if the T wave abnl is new or not. This pattern is seen often in healthy younger people, which (given ur age) is probably the case; however, a new T wave abnl can indicate MI ...Read more

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

Was in the hospital. Labs, ekg, heart monitor, and chest ct. Ct report showed borderline prominent heart. What does this mean? Can it cause sudden death?

Was in the hospital. Labs, ekg, heart monitor, and chest ct. Ct report showed borderline prominent heart. What does this mean? Can it cause sudden death?

Not likely: Radiologists usually qualitatively describe the size of the heart as normal, borderline enlarged, or enlarged (mildly, moderately, markedly). This gives the referring physician an idea of the seriousness of any underlying disorder. A borderline heart may mean nothing more than you have hypertension, and certainly would not mean you are at risk of sudden death. Discuss with your md. ...Read more

Not clear: Usually when an ECG is read as borderline normal, it means that there are no significant findings however not entirely compatible with normal ECG criteria. In most cases, this would be nothing to worry about. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I had an ECG done. Borderline low voltage in frontal leads. Borderline st elevation anterolateral leads means?

EKG: Ekg by itself doesn't mean anything. It has to be matched with the clinical picture. For example hear attack symptoms with st elevation can be active heart attack. Minimal st elevation without any symptoms could be something called j point elevation. Low voltage most of the time are normal but rarely could be seen in fluid around the heart. ...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

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
