What Does A Wide Q Wave Mean On 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

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
Probably not: By definition, a "significant" q wave must be > than 40 msec in duration or > than 25-33% (depends on the reference) of the r wave height. Even by that criteria, many electrocardigraphically significant q waves are seen in people with normal cardiac echo's and mri's. ...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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
