What Does A Q Wave Mean On A Ekg
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
Heart Damage: A "q wave" is seen on an electrocardiogram (ekg) several of which are recorded during a stress test. Q waves may be very small and not carry much significance or may be larger and suggest that heart damage by a heart attack has occured at some point in time. Further testing and imaging of the heart may be required to determine if the q wave is significant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does probable anterseptal mi age undertiminate Q waves v1-v2 neg t's mean on a EKG what does it mean?
Very detailed read: Q-waves on a particular set of leads tells us you had a heart attack some time in the past (age indeterminate = don't know when). The v-leads tell us it was in the septum. T-waves indicate acute myocardial infarction (mi=heart attack), and you didn't have those. Overall, i would say you had heart trouble in the past, but were doing ok at the time of this ekg. ...Read more
Understanding based: both heart anatomy & how the electrical stimulation spreads from cell-to-cell with the atria, then within the ventricles. Both terms relate to both the anatomy & electrical activity within the ventricles, both depolarization (left axis deviation) and then repolarization (T waves). Depolarization is delayed toward right vs. left side of ventricles. Repolarization pattern not normal; many reasons. ...Read more
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
No such thing: "Multiple r wave" does not make sense. Please go back to whoever told you that this is what you have and have this person show your ECG to a cardiologist for a proper interpretation. RSR' (RSR prime) is possibly what someone was trying to tell you. If so, resubmit. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have just done a ecg and it came back with a left axis deviation and t wave abnormality. What does that mean?
Left axis deviation: What that means is the doctor who was "caring" for you has not been very pleasant or helpful. Two things to do: 1: Please have your doctor explain all of the information to you. There is absolutely no reason why that did not happen already. 2: You can go online and look for several patient centered articles that will be helpful. ...Read more
Had a ECG which shows a nonspecific T wave abnormality with pulse of 97bpm. I'm on abilify (aripiprazole). What does the result mean? Pic of ECG in my files.
Talk to your doctor: The reason the study says, "nonspecific T-wave abnormality" is because the reader doesn't have enough information supplied to them by the referring provider so as to make a more SPECIFIC comment on what they're seeing...which is some sort of T-wave abnormality. Abnormalities can be due to NORMAL variants and therefore, of no consequence, or meaningful based on the clinical situation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
