What Does Marked Bradycardia Mean
Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, people in good cardiovascular shape have a low heart rate. People with certain heart conditions may take medications which lower the heart rate as one of ...Read more
See below: "bradycardia" means a heart rate less than 60 beats per minutes. "clinically significant" is an opinion. In my book, it means that the heart rate is causing symptoms. Since the symptoms of slow heart rate can be vague (generally just fatigue or getting out breath earlier than expected), your doctor is offering the opinion that your symptoms may be coming from slow heart rate. ...Read more
Depends on Symptoms: The answer to this depends largely symptoms. In general for a patient with bradycardia, if there is no lightheadedness, dizziness, passing out, or difficulty with exertion there is no major concern. Two caveats: 1) it is important to know the underlying rhythm, something that can easily be checked with an electrocardiogram. 2) the bradycardia could point to another condition like hypothyroidism. ...Read more
I have non-dilated left ventricule with good biventricular systolic function. What does this mean and did I inherit it? I also have bradycardia.
Normal: A non-dilated left ventricle would be a normal finding. That biventricular systolic function is good means it's normal as well (normal contractility). More information needed to answer what disease you are asking whether you inherited. ...Read more
This was my first ECG and the result was sinus bradycardia , possible inferior infarct, age undetermined ...does this mean the reading could be wrong?
2 things: sinus bradycardia means you have a resting heart rate less than 60, can be normal finding in young, healthy or athletic people, can also be pathologic depending on how low and the clinical scenario. Short PR can mean accelerated AV conduction which is essentially normal, or could me a pre-excitation suggesting presence of a bypass tract (WPW) but usually accompanied with other findings. ...Read more
My mom's ECG reads as Sinus Bradycardia with a single abnormal conducted beat, Left Axis deviation. What does that mean? She is 54 years old.
Rate <60 & Purkinje: fiber damage within endocardium. Any rate below 60 BPM is defined as bradycardia (not unhealthy). The abnormal conduction & LAD both occur as a result of damage to the Purkinje muscle fibers (look this up) within the endocardium of her heart muscle; nearly alway a result of atherosclerosis & heart attacks within the inner wall of the left ventricle-the portion most susceptible to ischemic damage. ...Read more
Ekg shows sinus bradycardia with sinus arrthythmia . Incomplete right bundle branch block and ESR is high. What does this mean?
Hi I got an ekg done when I was 19 and it said on the paper Abnormal ECG and then said sinus bradycardia and septal infarct and said age undetermined? i honestly don't really even know what it means or if it's serious or not. The dr just acted strange eve
Bradycardia: Bradycardia, in adults (not in children) is defined as heart rate slower than 60 beats per minutes. It can be perfectly normal in people who are athletic. For example, marathon runners can have resting heart rate in 40s or even lower. It is, generally, pathological, if it leads to symptoms of dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting. If it causes extreme symptoms, a pacemaker is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends: Bradycardia indicates that the heart rate is too slow (< 60 BPM in adults). It may be associated with a normal electrical impulse (such as sinus bradycardia in a well-trained athlete or during sleep) or an arrhythmia (abnormal electrical impulse). Some of the more common abnormal rhythms associated with bradycardia include atrioventricular block, sick sinus syndrome, and junctional rhythm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not usually: Only if accompanied by symptoms like enervation, dizziness, shortness of breath. If naturally occurring (no heart rhythm disturbance or medication adverse effect) and no symptoms, probably would simply observe. Otherwise, underlying conditions need to be sought and treated accordingly. Some may require a pacemaker if symptomatic and not responsive to conservative therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
