Sinus (Definition)

In anatomy, a sinus is a cavity within a bone or other tissue. Most commonly found in the bones of the face and connecting with the nasal cavities. Sinus (anatomy), description of the general term paranasal sinuses, air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose, including: the maxillary sinuses, also called the maxillary antra and the largest of the ...Read more

What should I do if my ECG says sinus bradycardia with premature atrial complexes?

Nothing: If you are an athlete, this may be normal. As long as you are not symptomatic then this is usually not dangerous. Normal sinus rhythm is 60-100 beats/min. Sinus bradycardia is < 60 beats/min. Very common in young athletes. Was the ECG otherwise normal? ...Read more

Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Depends: Sinus bradycardia can be normal in a fit individual. Septal infarct age undetermined may also be a normal variant, but also possibly indicate previous injury to the heart. You might want to consider getting further evaluation, such as a stress treadmill ECG test. Depending on various associated healthy issues, this might need to be combined with imaging (nuclear or ultrasonography). ...Read more

Ecg/ekg results: sinus bradycardia with short pr interval, what does this mean?

Ecg/ekg results: sinus bradycardia with short pr interval, what does this mean?

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

Got dysautonomia, for yrs standing heart rate 100+, laid in bed ECG showed sinus bradycardia 47. I sat up and it went to 60. Pacer needed, or fit heart?

No pacemaker: You haven't described anything that would constitute an indication for pacing which, in general, would consist of symptoms of passing out (or feeling like you could pass out) while your heart rate is exceptionally low (usually 30 seconds or pauses of >5 seconds.). ...Read more

Hello I experienced minor shortness of breath and slight dizziness last night. My ECG shows sinus bradycardia at pulse rate 47. I am 22 and a smoker.

Minor SOB, dizzy: May be reflux (GERD), independently or causing a mild reactive airway response or may be pulmonary asthma or cardiac. Would get an echocardiogram just to insure there is no cardiac abnormality. ...Read more

My husband just had an ECG done and it came out as Sinus Bradycardia (which isn't a big deal) but also has Incomplete right bundle branch block and left anterior fascicular block. We called and got a referral to a cardiologist (next 7 days). I'm just wo

Worried: you got an ecg as did your husband. You are worried. You have incomplete right bunble block and left ant fascilular block. Over all the cardiologist will look for prolonged qt and a detailed history of any family history. When you see your cardiologist answer all the questions and have a good family history. Tell any medications or holistic medications also. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Meaning of the diagnosis from an EKG, 12 Lead, Initial: Sinus bradycardia, Low voltage QRS, Possible Septal and Inferior infarcts, age undetermined.

Meaning of the diagnosis from an EKG, 12 Lead, Initial: Sinus bradycardia, Low voltage QRS, Possible Septal and Inferior infarcts, age undetermined.

3 things: Sinus bradycardia means the heart rate is less than 60 Low voltage QRS could be associated with many things, including obesity, emphysema, lung disease, pericardial effusion, infiltrative cardiomyopathy, etc Possible septal and inferior infarcts age undetermined: there is some evidence of possible heart attacks on the septal and inferior walls of the heart, and cannot determine the age of events ...Read more

Is there a difference between bradycardia and sinus bradycardia?

Is there a  difference between bradycardia and sinus bradycardia?

Mechanisms vary: Bradycardia simply means slow heart beat. Sinus bradycardia refers to a specific cause for the slow heart beat which is sluggishness of the natural pacemaker cells of the heart (referred to as sinus node). This could be normal in physically fit people or abnormal especially if associated with symptoms of fatigue, shortness of breath or passing out spells. ...Read more

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

Slow Heart Rate (Definition)

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
