What Does Unconfirmed Ecg Reports Says
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
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My TMT test report says "the study is BORDERLINE POSITIVE for provokable ischemia". What does this mean?
Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Borderline ECG: This is often the computer's interpretation of an ECG that doesn't fit strict criteria that are programmed into the computer. These "abnormalities" are often very subtle and require a human being to over-read the ecg. It is important to remember that an ECG is a lab test just like any other and needs to be interpreted in terms of the patient who is in front of the md. ...Read more
LookItUp, Use Google: Like all areas of human activity, humans like simplicity, unique to each area, very much including the medical disease system, thus many acronyms. The good news, you are paying attention and asking question as the person primarily in charge of all your medial/life decisions. Likely TAPSE is: Tricuspid Annular Plane Systolic Excursion, a crude indicator of ventricular diastolic & systolic function. ...Read more
Electrical activity: Ekg is a graph of the electrical activity of the upper and lower chambers of the heart. Electricity travelling toward an ekg electrode records a positive deflection and away records a negative deflection . It offers a clue into various heart problems including heart attack, ischemia, heart rhythm disturbances, enlarged or abnormally thickened heart and electrolyte abnormalities to name a few. ...Read more
Myocardial infarct: Myocardial infarct finding now present , means the EKG appears to demonstrate that there is EKG evidence of a heart attack . The information does not indicate whether recent or old.In what context was the EKG done and where and what follow up was recommended? Based on this would follow up with doc today at urgent care/ ER and get follow up, if not done . If having chest pain go to ER via 911 ...Read more
Unremarkable scan.: This is typical verbage for an unremarkable prenatal ultrasound. That means that the examination did not identify major fetal anomalies such as gastroschisis, omphalocele, anencephaly, spina bifida, diaphragmatic hernia, major heart/kidney/lung/skeletal defects. Congratulations - however keep in mind that even in experienced centers the detection rate of anomalies may not surpass 60-80%. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Early beats?: Acronyms are not always standardized on echo reports. However PVC and psvc may stand for premature ventricular (bottom heart chamber) and supraventricular (top heart chamber) contractions; respectively. You may have had 2 and 5 of each, during the echocardiogram recording. Commenting on the significance of this requires more information. See cardiologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
EKG : Often the computer that prints the ekg's will type these comments on the top best to review it with either you regular physician or someone that reads them regularly, likely a cardiologist. Sometimes these are incorrect and in any case often not indicative of any disease. ...Read more
Sinus rhythm ECG non specific t wave abnormality what does this mean doc said ok but I'm freaking?
Depends...: The significance of t wave inversions is almost impossible to assess without taking into account the history and examination findings in a given patient; i.e., ECG findings can be difficult to interpret when viewed in isolation. T wave inversions can be due to a long list of possible diagnoses, some benign/non-specific, others concerning, and usually require further assessment. ...Read more
US changes: The radiologist who is reading the ultrasound is expressing an opinion. To have an actual determination of your kidney function, you need to see a nephrologist and have a 24 hour urine collection done for creatinine clearance. That will give you an objective assessment of your renal function, rather than a subjective reading of an ultrasound by a radiologist. ...Read more
Saw my cardiologist today&had an ECG done.On the ECG report, there is the line"Poor data quality, interpretation may be adversely affected".What does it mean?Should I have a repeated ECG to make sure it's accurate? Cardiologist told me it was normal.
It means that the: technical quality of the tracing is poor (probably baseline artifact or electrical noise on the recording) and that the computer is uncertain about the exact interpretation because of this. The human doctor will be able to account for this so I would trust his/her interpretation. It's surprising that you would have this in a Cardiologist's office but not a big concern. ...Read more
