Electrocardiogram (Definition)

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

What to do if I have a history of atrial fibrillation but this did not show up on the holter monitor. Any suggestions on an actual cause?

Paroxysmal: Timing is critical. If a Holter monitor did not show any atrial fibrillation it's most likely because there was no such activity during the time you carried the monitor, considering the limits of such a test. That does not mean you did not have atrial fibrillation prior to the test or a chance to develop another self limited episode anytime in the future. ...Read more

What does a heart attack look like? As in, what does the heart actually look like during the attack?

It depends: On where and how big and for how long. The part that is not getting enough blood (that's why you get a heart attack) will not be moving as much, and because of inflammation and not getting blood, that part can look anywhere from pale to kind of purple and angry looking. If you are having emergency surgery because you are having a heart attack, that's what happens, and that's why you can see it. ...Read more

Rare complication: Whenever things are put down the throat (eg. scopes or fingers) which cause reflex gagging then, in hypersensitive people the Vagus nerve can cause strong cardiac stimulation resulting in standstill or severe arrhythmia to be triggered in hypersensitive individuals. Proper anesthesia of the patient usually avoids this from happening but despite this it's still a rare complication that can happen. ...Read more
