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 normal ECG with normal variations mean?

What does a normal ECG with normal variations mean?

Ecg showed 1 beat with a u wave like hypoalakemia but rest of beats normal?

Unless there are other reasons for your potassium to be low such as vomiting, diarrhea, diuretic medicines, an otherwise healthy 23 year old will probably have a normal potassium. Of course if you are have other heart related symptoms be sure to follow up with your doctor. ...Read more
