What Does A Q Wave Mean On An 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
EKG: The ekg has waves with amplitude and direction. A q wave reflects a lack of electrical force in a certain direction. This lack of force has some correlation when a change in pattern with a loss of muscle as is seen in heart damage like a heart attack. ...Read more
My dad had a MI 3mths later on ECG the report said inferolateral st sagging and 'surprisingly no q wave' what does this mean?
It depends: It depends on the location and size of the Q waves in relation to the other parts of the qrs complex. Ask your doctor to look at the ECG and let you know. ...Read more
Cardiology. Wat relarevance dose a Q Wave have on lead 3 of an EKG. Where dose intrascapula fit is this part of another condition? And affects the heart
None.: It is not uncommon for young adults to have Q waves. These are normal and are the first activation of the bottom of the heart, between the main pumping chambers, called the interventricular septum. After that, it splits into Left and Right sides but that first Q wave is picked up as the initial beat of the ventricles before spreading out into the main heart muscles that make the main Signal. ...Read more
Low Potassium: Flat t waves can indicate that you are low in potassium (k) or that you are experiencing some ischemia (lack of oxygen) to your heart. Was this a routine ekg? Or was it a stress test? Depending on the answer, your doctor may want some more tests to evaluate blood flow to the heart. ...Read more
What does an EKG 12-lead impression: non-specific st t wave abnormality mean? I I just need to know what this test result means.
A: A "nonspecific" abnormality means that the wave doesn't look like the typical, standard ekg. The st-t wave is the wave that occurs right after the qrs. Often times the wave doesn't look typical, but it is important to note if prior ekg's have appeared the same for the patient. Also, some medications can cause these changes. ...Read more
31 y/o white female had a EKG done hr 83 the results stated abnormal EKG nonspecific t-wave abnormality. Was taken twice, what does that mean?
Hard to say: Non specific t wave abnormalities can be associated with many different cardiac conditions both benign and more serious. They may also be present when nothing is wrong with the heart. That's why they are " nonspecific, ". ...Read more
I was in ER &dr said my EKG looked worse &that my t waves were deeper & admitted me then nxt morning a dr said don't worry, what does deeper waves mean?
Impossible: Without seeing the ekg we cannot possibly comment on this. But, that is okay. You have a family doctor. This is the perfect question to ask your physician in follow up after an er visit. ...Read more
EKG - ST - Changes:
60 years old female with slightly flat ST -T waves on EKG : The EKG is not a very sensitive tool to diagnose heart disease especially in females.
EKG should be compared to prior EKG's if you had one done in the past and also your cardiologist or physician should look into your symptoms and risk factors together with EKG changes to make further recommendations ...Read more
ECG: Most twave changes are nonspecific, so we can't be sure. ...Read more
Not satisfying: I know my answer won't be satisfying to you, but "non-specific st-t wave changes" mean exactly what they sound like. The ekg has changes that are abnormal but are non-specific, ie they don't diagnose anything. For example, sometimes you don't feel good. You can't describe what's wrong - something is wrong but the problem is "non-specific". You just don't feel normal. ...Read more
