What Does A Normal Ekg Look Like
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 more
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
My ekg said short st. What's this mean and what causes it? Also does a normal ekg mean I'm not having a heart attack?
Pattern between S&T: Waves on EKG. Study: https://goo. Gl/RBVB3n. EKGs miss most heart attacks. Why? EKGs recorded from surface of body yet innermost muscle of left ventricle is always the most susceptible to ischemic damage (MI, aka heart attack). EKG only reveals damage extending far enough through wall & large enough area; plus "normal" range is so large, an obvious change easily occur & EKG still called normal. ...Read more
Does a normal EKG and normal blood test mean my heart is okay? I'm a sixteen year old female, over weight. Bad anxiety I always think something is wrong with my health. I now think I have a heart problem, but the ER and the doctor says it's just my anx
Normal for age: These tests exclude any significant heart problem, which are rare at your age anyway. Common things are by definition common. Anxiety triggers indigestion & that pain is often centered just beneath your heart. It is also aggravated by poor sleep, caffeine or nicotine, chocolate, carbonated beverages, etc. You may feel better if you avoid any caffeinated products, don't lay down for 1 hr after meal ...Read more
EKG Question - What would cause a small dip after the T wave? It's like a scoop about 1mm deep. Is this normal or should it be isoelectric after T?
Yes, isoelectric if: After the T-wave. Given that the T-wave is the heart muscle repolarization wave, most likely explanation=the dip is the terminal portion of the T-wave; i.e. terminal inversion due to muscle still in recovery. (Rarely, a U-wave may create illusion of a dip after the T-wave.) Terminal T-wave inversion, T-wave prolongation & QRS duration ≥80 ms. (delayed depolarization) are all c/w ischemia/fibrosis. ...Read more
What should p waves look like in lead v1? What does it mean if different on some EKG? One will show completely positive, one fully negative, another biph
There can be a lot: Of normal variability to the p-wave morphology in V1. More so in women. In general a biphasic or mostly upright p wave is usual. Certainly you could have an ectopic atrial activation in which case the morphology would be altered. Physical positioning (sitting, lying or at 30 degrees) for the EKG will also make a difference. Lead position too. Regardless it is usually of no clinical significance. ...Read more

Does QT interval vary over the course of a day? Had two EKGs done on same day - at different places - and both were normal, but different.
QT interval varies: With Heart Rate. The "corrected" QT interval tries to standardize this but there are a number of different correction formulas and the calculation for each EKG machine may have been resulted using different methods. The key is it is not abnormal. So worry not. ...Read more

Anxiety and Panic: Hundreds of young people spend thousands of dollars every day seeking emergent or expensive medical care for 'chest pains' only to be told that they are normal and may have anxiety. Many humans hold their tension in their chest. There are lots of muscles in the chest that can spasm. I would get a good family physician to guide you through this; to reassure you and to help you deal better. ...Read more
I get heart palps once in a while. It feels like butterflies and I feeel scared. I've had ekgs and they say my heart is normal. What should I do?
See your doctor.: At your age you are unlikely to have a serious heart problem. A 24 hour holter monitor may help identify any abnormal heart beats. If the symptoms are very infrequent an event monitor may be able to clarify the issue. If symptoms are present when the monitor reveals normal rhythm, anxiety may be the cause. Are you using drugs? Do you drink excessive caffeinated drinks? A doctor's visit will help. ...Read more
