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 do you suggest if my ECG report says 'sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the right. what does it mean ?

What do you suggest if my ECG report says 'sinus rhythm r-s transition zone in v leads displaced to the right. what does it mean ?

Clockwise: It means that when you were born, your heart was rotated just a little tiny bit counter-clockwise in your chest. It has NO clinical significance. Doctors report it to prove that they were awake when they were reading EKGs. Forget it! ...Read more

What does it mean if my ECG report says incomplete rbbb?

What does it mean if my ECG report says incomplete rbbb?

Delayed impulse: It means there is a slight delay in the transmission of the signal telling the heart to contract on its right side. Usually both right and left ventricles contract together but with rbbb, there is a delay in the spread of the impulse through the right ventricle. This shows as a slight sawtooth appearance of the qrs waveform in the right sided ekg leads. ...Read more

My moms ECG report says ladp. What exactly does that mean?

My moms ECG report says ladp. What exactly does that mean?

Check again: I've been reading EKGs for >30 years, but I'm not familiar with "ladp". The closest I can think of are lahb (left anterior hemiblock) or lafb (left anterior fasicular block). There is LAD (left axis deviation). Please recheck your mom's report and let us know. ...Read more

LADP?: Sorry-that's not a standard abbreviation for anything. If the report really says LADP, it's likely a typo. Ask for clarification. ...Read more

Ecg report says normal sinus rhythm and . Left axis deviation anterior fasicular block. What does this mean?

Abnormal ECG: Left anterior fascicular block is a form of conduction abnormality that is usually silent -- it means only is seen in the ECG -- but it would be wise to have a complete physical and a stress test at your age. ...Read more

Ecg report of mom: pr & qrs interval: 184 & 82 msec..P & qrs axis= 38 & -60 deg resp...Doctor says incomplete rbbb + lahb...Please suggest

Ecg report of mom: pr & qrs interval: 184 & 82 msec..P & qrs axis= 38 & -60 deg resp...Doctor says incomplete rbbb + lahb...Please suggest

ECG report: The pr and qrs intervals are normal. There is left axis deviation in the qrs complex, consistent with a lahb. There is more than 60 degrees of difference between the p and qrs axes, which is abnormal. Without examining the tracing, i cannot comment on the report of incomplete rbbb. Why was the ECG done and what symptoms or cardiac condition(s) does your mom have? Possibly ihd? ...Read more

They did an ECG and on the report it says "left atrial abnormality", "Sinus Rhythm", "Probable right ventricular hypertrophy" Am i safe? should i worr

See below: This are changes observed in particular leads and not absolute but suggestive (depending on the criteria).
Left Atrial abnormality maybe is suggesting hypertension or another etiology that increased pressure. this could be backing up to the RV and cause hypertrophy.

If that is the case you would Short of breath or have some difficulty breathing. More info needed to answer properly ...Read more

Here's what my dad ECG report says..SINUS RYTHM LEFT, ARIAL ABNORMALITY, LVH WITH REPOLARIZATION ABNORMALITY, PROLONGED QT INTERVAL..please interpret?

Here's what my dad ECG report says..SINUS RYTHM  LEFT, ARIAL ABNORMALITY, LVH WITH REPOLARIZATION ABNORMALITY, PROLONGED QT INTERVAL..please interpret?

Must see : It's not possible to "interpret" an ECG without seeing it. These reports suggest the possibility that high blood pressure has effected the heart, making it thicker, but again I am only speaking in general terms having not looked at the ECG myself. ...Read more

Can you explain the different components of ECG report?

Can you explain the different components of ECG report?

A lot!: For a cardiologist, an EKG can give information about the rate, the rhythm, whether there are signs of a congenital abnormality, signs of a heart attach or blocked artery, the thickness of the heart muscle, previous heart attack, and more. In experienced hands, an EKG can tell an incredible amount of information. ...Read more

My ECG says possible st/t abnormality. Normal enzymes though.

Non specific: Many ST-T wave abnormalities are nonspecific. By themselves, they may not represent any problem, because a variety of unrelated issues can cause them - for example, electrolyte abnormalities from dehydration, hyperventilation from anxiety, and other non heart related problems are possible causes. So they don't necessarily indicate a heart problem. Talk to your doctor about possible causes for you ...Read more

Ecg report measurement results are ECG measurement results- qrs 100ms qt/qtcb 366/417ms pr 138 MS p 104ms, what does this mean?

Ecg report measurement results are ECG measurement results- qrs 100ms qt/qtcb 366/417ms pr 138 MS p 104ms, what does this mean?

Normal values: That is a list of standard intervals and segments measured as a part an ECG. Those numbers look pretty normal, of course there is much more to the ECG than just those standard measurements, things like rate, rhythm, axis, ST/T wave abnormalities, Q waves etc. ...Read more

Ecg says regular rhythm with P wave difficult to define. What does that mean. Had an Ecg dx me with supravent tachy too. Workup last year was good.

ECG: that wording suggests that p waves were difficult to see on the tracing. It could mean they were there but could also mean maybe they weren't. They are there in normal sinus rhythm. ...Read more

Holter ECG over 22 hours says: avg HR-90, min HR- 59, max HR-148, min hourly HR- 81, max hourly HR- 107, Pauses>2.5 sec= 3. what is the risk? Thanks.

Holter report: There isn't enough information there to give a full prediction. Except for the 3 long pauses the report isn't very remarkable. You should ask the Dr. to explain the results to you as there is more involved than what is in your question statement. ...Read more

Sorry 4 so many questions I'm scared to sleep due to sudden change in ECG from normal to non specific t wave abnormality in a few hours exstreme aniexty Google says sign of serious problem?

Not a problem: The T wave is the most labile wave in the ECG. T wave changes including low-amplitude T waves and abnormally inverted T waves may be the result of many cardiac and non-cardiac conditions. The normal T wave is usually in the same direction as the QRS except in the right precordial leads (see V2 below). See link for details but try not to get confused with medical jargon. Consult your MD for sp qs. ...Read more

Why do docs say im ok with normal stressecho,ecg,agatston score0.5, BP 120-130/80-90?

Agatston score 0.5: Is the Agatston score 0.5 or 5? Both are very low with little risk for coronary event. At this point I would not be concerned about your blood pressure as it varies constantly during the day. Would try to avoid too much salt and check the blood pressure every 2-3 months. Would only be concerned if it were > 140/90 on more than 3 separate occasions. Do not worry. ...Read more

EKG says "Borderline ECG" and "probable left atrial enlargement." Is this anything of concern?
