What Does A Bradycardia Ecg Look Like
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
Low T wave: Hypokalemia (low potassium) characteristically creates a low-voltage t-wave and a prominent u-wave on ones ecg; the u-wave can merge with ones t-wave, creating a long qt interval which is associated with cardiac arrhythmias, some of which can be life-threatening. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chest Pain: Typically, patients with a heart attack have chest pain, difficulty breathing. The pain can sometimes move to the arm or the jaw. But, it greatly depends on the individual patient and the other medical conditions he or she has. For instance, paients with diabetes can sometimes get a heart attack without any chest pain at all, because the diabetes damages the nerves around the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Myocarditis: Can have several appearances on ecg. It can look like an acute heart attack, it can also have low voltage because of the inflammation causing a decrease in electrical transmission. It can have diffuse st depression; there is not one consistent pattern for myocarditis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A normal EKG: Because some areas of the heart are electrically silent, one can have a full blown heart attack with an entirely normal ekg. When the ekg is destined to become abnormal, it often lags, not showing changes early on: hence the need for "serial ekgs" (done daily). The adage "treat the patient, not the ekg" hasn't changed over the years. ...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
Normal: Essentially a normal findingGet a more detailed answer ›
ECG: Left ventricular obstruction has no meaning on an ecg. Left ventricular outflow tract obstruction can cause the left ventricle to hypertrophy anatomically. The hypertrophy can be seen on ecg as the LVH pattern. One can not however read 'obstruction' on an ecg, it can be suspected but not diagnosed by ecg alone absent other information. ...Read more
What does no significant abnormalities mean on a holter monitor? Does it suggest ectopic beats and nothing else?

Consider 24-48 hour : Monitoring yourself with a 24 or 48 hour monitor would be a better tool for evaluation of your bradycardia. If it doesn’t occur every24-48 hours, there are monitors you can wear for weeks. Of course, following with your doctor to review medications and labs is a must. ...Read more
I am noticing resting hr of as low as 54 sometime but no symptoms. Also it increases as i move etc.
Ecg/echo/tmt all ok 5 months back
If all of your: testing is normal and you have no symptoms, there is no reason to be concerned by a HR of 54. Many well trained athletes have resting heart rates in the 30s. The key is symptoms. If there are none then there is no concern. Bradycardia is a descriptive term. Symptomatic bradycardia is a clinical condition requiring treatment. ...Read more
Depends: Sinus bradycardia can be normal in a fit individual. Septal infarct age undetermined may also be a normal variant, but also possibly indicate previous injury to the heart. You might want to consider getting further evaluation, such as a stress treadmill ECG test. Depending on various associated healthy issues, this might need to be combined with imaging (nuclear or ultrasonography). ...Read more
2 things: sinus bradycardia means you have a resting heart rate less than 60, can be normal finding in young, healthy or athletic people, can also be pathologic depending on how low and the clinical scenario. Short PR can mean accelerated AV conduction which is essentially normal, or could me a pre-excitation suggesting presence of a bypass tract (WPW) but usually accompanied with other findings. ...Read more
My mom's ECG reads as Sinus Bradycardia with a single abnormal conducted beat, Left Axis deviation. What does that mean? She is 54 years old.
Rate <60 & Purkinje: fiber damage within endocardium. Any rate below 60 BPM is defined as bradycardia (not unhealthy). The abnormal conduction & LAD both occur as a result of damage to the Purkinje muscle fibers (look this up) within the endocardium of her heart muscle; nearly alway a result of atherosclerosis & heart attacks within the inner wall of the left ventricle-the portion most susceptible to ischemic damage. ...Read more

If there are specific symptoms believed to be caused by the bradycardia, then workup might help in understanding its cause. In your case the type of symptoms as well as circumstances contributing, for example exercise/rest will help in delineating next best step. ...Read more
Got dysautonomia, for yrs standing heart rate 100+, laid in bed ECG showed sinus bradycardia 47. I sat up and it went to 60. Pacer needed, or fit heart?
Hi I got an ekg done when I was 19 and it said on the paper Abnormal ECG and then said sinus bradycardia and septal infarct and said age undetermined? i honestly don't really even know what it means or if it's serious or not. The dr just acted strange eve
My ECG and blood work are normal but my resting heart can get as low as 41 when sitting. Can a prolonged sedentary lifestyle cause bradycardia?
Dysautonomia - MVP : Possibly due to low resting energy requirements. You may have dysautonomia which is associated with mitral valve prolapse syndrome - neither are usually life threatening but both cause patients anxiety about their symptoms. Read dr. Richard hoffman's book on mvp on amazon.Com. Increase fluid intake, try magnesium supplements. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Halter, ecg,normal thyroid, stress test, blood work and echo all ok. Still have bradycardia sometimes at rest 41 bpm. What could it be?
Could be...: If this slow heart rate is without other symptoms and complete lab work is normal, some people can have a slow heart rate because they are athletic. If you are not athletic and would like more answers seeing your doctor or a cardiologist to review all the tests and decide the next course of action would be appropriate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hello I experienced minor shortness of breath and slight dizziness last night. My ECG shows sinus bradycardia at pulse rate 47. I am 22 and a smoker.
Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, people in good cardiovascular shape have a low heart rate. People with certain heart conditions may take medications which lower the heart rate as one of ...Read more
