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.
This is usually: Associated with coronary artery disease- see pcp or cardiologist. ...Read more
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 more
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. What's 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
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 more
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?
Non cardiac pain: It appears that your heart may not be the source of pain. Evaluation for g.I respiratory and musculoskeletal causes. ...Read more
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 more
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
Would left coronary artery blockage produce ischemia of left ventricle and right axis deviation on ekg?
Resting EKG showed minor t wave abnormalities. Poss inferior ischemia but exsersise EKG (stress test) was normal. Been having chest pain. Heart ultrasound done 1 mth ago was normal. What else to do?
Next step: Your next step would be a myocardial perfusion study also known as a "chemical stress test". Regular stress tests have been known to have false negative findings especially in females but, at your age, unless there is a strong family history or other strong risk factors you should be ok. ...Read more
EKG showed 'hardening' of heart muscle. Just had a SV Ischemia show on CT scan. Is this connected? Does Arrythmia cause the hardening?
Not sure: Not sure how an ECG can show hardening of heart muscle. It could show signs that may be related to previous damage of heart muscle. Damage of heart muscle can cause arrhythmia. Most arrhythmias, unless left uncontrolled for long periods of time do dot cause heart damage. ...Read more
What type of health issues include skin odor that recently and consistently smells like urine with an EKG that shows ischemia, increased WBC w/o fever severe fatigue, headaches and pain in the body?
Ct scan showed Small vessel Ischemia. Cardioglogist quadruppled beta blocker after EKG. How does the ischemia effect my Kidney disease (stage 4)?
Vessels in both:
Without an actual exam, I can't give specific medical advice on your particular health.
Same things affect vessels EVERYWHERE. So, while strokes, or heart attacks don't hit the kidney. The same bad vessels are in all organs. Hi BP, diabetes, and cholesterol all clog vessels everywhere and affect all the organs (heart, brain, kidney). Treatable.
such bad heart disease, no blood gets to kidney. ...Read more
Yes, it is: That's actually very bad. You need a full cardiac workup. See a cardiologist. ...Read more
I'm diagnosed of anterior septal wall ischemia last dec 11 & ystrday ECG read nonspecific stt wave change, what to do?
Well: What did you doctor say? Did you ask him/ her as who sees you and did the test is the one with most info on your condition. ...Read more
I am 62 yrs. Old male & had my byepass 4 yrs. Back. Now my ECG reads as I have biatrial enlargment inferolateral ischemia. Is it serious?
I am 23 yrs old. My ECG reprt shws inferior lateral ischemia. I have done Eco. Eco reprt shows LVH. Dctr said its conginital. Wht I do nw?
Left ventricular hypertrophy on echo and an abnormal ECG should be eval'd by cardiology who can help decide if this is truly abnormal or if it is due to an "athlete's heart", or a normal variant. A detailed family history will be needed -- be prepared.
Patients are often nervous at the time of a consult. Bring a list of questions, and another person or pen & paper to take notes. ...Read more
Can ECG detect ischemia? How accurate is it? Her Dr. Did not explained to her what type of ischemia it is because she doenst have any symptoms.
My resting ECG report shows t wave abnormality, consider anterior ischemia and incomplete rbbb. Should I be concerned? I see a cardio in 2 weeks.
ECG abnormality: T wave abnormalities are usually non-specific, especially if you are an otherwise healthy young woman. The computer read-out should always be confirmed and checked by the physician, so you will have more specific info after you get the opinion of the cardiologist. Of course, if you have cardiac symptoms like chest pain with exertion then a more urgent eval is a good idea. ...Read more
I was having chest pain since morning and docter took an ECG n diagnosed as septal ischemia what should I do?
Cardiology...: Evaluation by a Cardiologist is of outmost importance at this time. I am not sure if you were referred but this should be the next step. For now I would figure you have been prescribed medications while you get other tests done. If you develop a new event of chest pain you should go to the emergency room for prompt treatment. ...Read more
I am 39yr of age my tmt report show mild positive to reversible ischemia and my 2d echo report is normal and ecg and pft is also normal. Hdl is 65?
ECG: Possible abnormalities can possibly be meaningful or not. The best you can say is possibly serious. More information is needed, ask your Doc about you. ...Read more
Always had abnormal ECG due to inverted Twaves last ECG said ST & Twave abnormality, consider Anterior ischemia cant rule out inferior infarct. Worry?
Depends: You list "stress echocardiography" - was this normal? It's a much more accurate test than just an ordinary, resting EKG. If your stress echo was normal, forget the EKG but remember to always warn future doctors that you have a "normal funky-looking EKG" so they don't worry. ...Read more
Hi. I did ECG and results : ST and T wave abnormality, consider inferolateral ischemia, doctor said everything is ok... 27 years old, 60 kg.
Depends: In many cases the EKG machine gives an automated reading. It's not as effective as having a good pair of eyes reading the EKG. I'd go with your docs's advice. ...Read more
3 yrs ago I had an MI; LAD was 98% blocked. Stented and feel fine. Will this event cause chronic ECG "abnormal/consider ant. Ischemia" warning?
ECG changes after MI: The electrocardiogram may be permanently affected by a significant myocardial infarction. It sounds like your tracing may have T wave inversion or ST segment changes. It would be helpful to review the series of ECG tracings. It is very good news that you feel fine; whether to have a stress test or other test to check further is debatable and should be decided by a cardiologist with all your data ...Read more
THE RESULT OF MY ECG IS THIS " SEPTAL WALL ISCHEMIA C- IRBBB" WHAT DOES IT MINS. I AM TAKING RIFAMPICINE DRUG, MY DOCTOR SAID NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
I just had a ecg today and it said on the sheet Sinus rhythm, left ventricular hypertrophy, ant/septal and lateral ST-T changes may be due to hypertrophy and/or ischemia, abnormal ecg. My doctor told me my heart was ok! I had a quad by pass 1 year ago als
ABN ECG after Bypass: Doctor prob means there's no ECG changes from a year ago. ECG was prob abn before Bypass, & worse after. Important questions are answered on Stress test & Echo, & not unreasonable to have a year after Bypass. Important questions are whether you experience unexplained breath shortness or chest/arm discomfort w exertion. Once an ECG is abnormal one can only compare with previous ones (weak test) ...Read more
