What Does Ischemia On Ekg Mean
I had an EKG that was taken in the ER and it showed i was tachycardiac and had an abnormal t-wave with ischemia. What does this mean.
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
My stress test results read " positive exercise stress test for ischemia by EKG criteria. What does that mean?
This means that the: EKG portion of your stress test had changes in the waveforms that have been known to be associated with blockages of the coronary arteries. Unfortunately, greater than 15% of the time this is inaccurate in women. Less than 5% of the time in men. This is why we always do stress testing in women along with nuclear imaging. If the nuclear imaging is negative then the EKG changes are FALSE positive. ...Read more
Posterior wall?: You probably meant to say posterior wall, instead of posterior valve. But it probably means there is a blockage in the coronary artery that is feeding the posterior wall of your heart. This can be confirmed with a coronary angiogram and potentially fixed with coronary angioplasty and stent placement or else coronary bypass surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had ECG doctor says it's normal but I noticed it read Inferior Infarct and no acute ischemia?What does this mean?Should I be concerned?
The EKG computers: are tilted to analyze for abnormality rather than normalcy. The Computer probably picked up some subtle or insignificant change that is not clinically relevant and indicated it to make the doctor aware. His/her interpretation supersedes anything the computer says. If he said normal than that is what it is. ...Read more
Stressechoresults: abn stress ECG at 9.1mets, normal exercise stress echo with no evidence of stress induced myocardial ischemia. What does this mean?
The result of my ECG lateral wall ischemia occ. Pvc anterior septal infarct. Whats is that mean? Is that serious?
St-t wave changes,consider inferolateral ischemia on ecg, echo shows heart good. Doctor said are few heart interruptions. What means? 27 yrs. Thanks
ST-T wave changes: ST-T wave changes often are non-specific and may not mean anything. There are some ST-T changes that are the hallmark of heart attack, but I doubt this is your case as you echo was normal. Modern computerized ECG machines will always say "consider ... ischemia" with any ST-T wave abnormality. ...Read more
Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia.DR impressions on ecg. This means?
ECG interpretation : The "no acute ischemia" part means that there is no heart attack occurring at the moment. The rest really implies that the ECG tracing was not perfect in its appearance. This could be nothing, or it could be related to true heart disease. This type of EKG would need to be interpreted in context: symptoms, physical limitation, other testing. ...Read more
Ekg showed possible septal ischemia this is change from normal EKG 3 months ago - can I still continue to exercise ?
ECG : This question is best posed to the doc who knows you. Ecg is just one data bit in your whole clinical picture. ...Read more
My ekg showed probable anterosrptal ischemia and short pr wave. My doc said the info shows up on numerous pts. And not to worry. Should I be concerned?
EKG during physical showed "t-wave consider anterior ischemia." I feel fine but have family history. Do I need to see a cardiologist?
ECG abnormal: It would be wise to consult a cardiologist ...Read more
Resting EKG showed non sprsifuc t wave inversions. Suggesting possible ischemia. But exercise ekg. Was completely normal. Should i worry? I have hbp
Low worry: Nonspecific ECG finding are commonly found. If a person with a baseline ECG abnormality has clinical symptoms which may represent heart disease, a stress test is frequently done to evaluate the symptom. If the stress test is normal, the likelihood of worrisome heart disease is statistically low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a ekg done Friday and it came back Sinus bradycardia moderate t wave abnormality, consider anterior ischemia. What is this and how serious is it?
ECG : The report is very nonspecific. It is not necessarily serious. You should ask your doctor what it means for you. ...Read more
39 yr old male weightlifter. Hypertension palps. Ekg says old antero septal infarct. Consider inferior ischemia. I don't believe it. No pain w exercise?
I am 40 years old with chest pain. The doctor didan EKG which reported non specific ischemia and abnormal t wave but the echo and the stress tests are normal. What should I do?
My EKG states st and t wave abnormalities and sinus tachycardia and consider inferno lateral ischemia. . My doctor didn't seem concerned. Should i be?
Family practice : The ekg machine is very sensitive in their readings. Their interpretation is often miss read. It must always be read by the physician for a final reading. Many times we compare it with previous ekg , s. Ask your dr to explain it if you are still concerned. ...Read more
Poor: It is neither sensitive nor highly specific. It's only one tool among many that doctors use. It's helpful for confirming a clinical suspicion if the history is suggestive and the ekg is either dramatically abnormal or changed from a previous tracing. Its value is increased when performed during the index symptom under evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
EKG came back High Risk Operation.ST Elevation, consider early repolarization, pericarditis or injury. ST&T wave abnormal consider anterior ischemia?
Need further workup: Need to get evaluated for ischemic heart disease myocardial perfusion scan if done and called for this ischemia ,need to further evaluate with cardiac catheterization and or CTA of coronary vessels to clarify the abnormality especially if you are going for a surgical procedure ...Read more
