What Does An Ekg Test Tell You
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
Why do i have bradycardia but no one can tell me why. Ekg. Echo, stress test all normal. Started 2 weeks after baby was born. 7 months postpartum.
Symptomatic?: How slow is your heart rate? Are you symptomatic from this? If you have fatigue, decreased exercise tolerance, dizziness, chest pains, headaches then I would consider seeing a cardiologist who specializes in EPS - electrophysiological studies. if you are completely asymptomatic, can exercise normally and/or are an elite athlete, then the bradycardia may not be anything to worry about. ...Read more
I am always having heaaches can anyone tell mw what's the problem. I did my ECG EEG test all was ok?
Just took an ECG yesterday results came normal. should I still worry about a stroke? also will a blood test tell me if I have a damaged nerve or artery
Why are you worried?: An ECG will not tell you about the blood vessels in your brain. A blood test cannot tell you if you have a damaged nerve or artery. Why are you worried? These are some of the things that can raise your risk of stroke or heart attack: smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, lack of exercise, high blood fat (cholesterol, triglycerides), diabetes, family history, poor diet. Search HT for advice. ...Read more

Great news!!: You can do this! Tell your friends. Get your cigarettes, ash trays & matches/lighters out of the house by Monday.

Start a new hobby, book or sport on Monday to feel extra healthy. Just deciding to quit was 1/2 the battle! ...Read more
PR segment?: The PR segment is the period between the end of the p wave and the beginning of the QRS. This segment is the delay of electrical activity at the level of the AV node, electrical tissue that separates the upper from the lower chambers of your heart. A long PR segment is a form of heart block called 1st degree and is usually not dangerous and often reversible. Ask again if you mean P or R waves. ...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
