What Does An Abnormality In A Stress Test Mean
What does "evidence of GI OVERLAP on the interior wall" in stress test means? And also "a non specific T wave abnormality" in EKG
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more
My mother had a stress test and it came back showing abnormalities of the heart. What does this mean for her?
Abnormal stress: Tests can have multiple causes. Some are from artifact, some are from blockages that could cause a heart attack, some are from old heart attacks. This really needs to be discussed with her doctor. The next course of action might include an angiogram or medication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I just had a nuclear stress test. What is decreased perfusion in the apico-anterior &basio interior walls with wall motion abnormality apex/inferior?
Study: The study suggests some congruent wall motion abnormality with areas of decreased perfusion images. You should discuss your full data with your cardiologist who knows you and your cath data and other data. All these things should be collated to present to you what your diagnosis is and what therapy may be appropriate. ...Read more
EKG fine but doc noticed minor abnormality. Stress test, echo, ekgs fine in the past. I drank soda a few hours before and was anxious. could this be y?
Most likely not: John, Most people have "minor abnormalities" in their EKG's. If you already had a normal stress test, echo, and other testing at the age of 23, it was probably a random event, or it could have been flushing and rapid heart rate related to the caffeine in the soda. I would suggest avoiding caffeine, alcohol, and smoking, and if the symptoms worsen or don't go away, go see your doctor. ...Read more
Can a sinus infection affect a stress test? Echo perfect and stress test had abnormality? And is there a less invasive procedure than angiogram?
EKGs: QTc 474, then 465.Doc said overread due to TWave abnormality which is common in MVP.Said not to worry about Long QT.Passed stress test.Thoughts?
MVP/QT interval: MVP is associated with arrhythmia/long QT interval. Your QT is longer and you have T wave abnormality- low - mid probability of long QT syndrome. Have you had syncope? any other family members diagnosed with prolonged QT syndrome? Consider eval by a cardiac electrophysiologist. Discuss keeping T4- thyroid level in the mid not high range. ...Read more
Had EKG q and t wave abnormality.I saw a cardiologist who did an echocardiogram, a 24 halter moniter and an exercise stress test, all normal.Two more EKG had same abnormality. He said i was ok ?
I have mitral valve prolap. Echo was normal, stress test normal, ekg showed bordline left atrial abnormality, suffer from anxiety, should should worry?
Not yet: If u gave mitral valve prolapse, your echo ought bot to have been "normal" as u state but rather show evidence of a redundant leaflet and MVP with or without leaky valve. TheASE has strict criteria for MVP exactly bc it was very loosely being used. Pls reconcile with a cardiologist. SecondECG not test of choice to diagnose "left atrial enlargement" which is what is being suggested . Echo is. ...Read more
"negative" is good: A "negative" stress test means the absence of what is being tested for--i.e. No signs of flow-limiting blockages in coronary arteries. In other words, the heart muscle is getting plenty of blood flow. It's important to note that a normal stress test does not mean the absence of underlying non-obstructive coronary disease. Detecting this may require other tests, depending on your risk profile. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
