What causes a borderline ECG?

Borderline ecg: A 'borderline ecg' is one which is not definitely normal, nor is it definitely abnormal. There are many possible causes from technical through physiologic all the way to the reading doctor just couldn't bring him/herself to just say normal.

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 does this mean? - BORDERLINE ECG - SINUS RHYTHM BORDERLINE R WAVE PROGRESSION, ANTERIOR LEADS BORDERLINE T ABNORMALITIES, INFERIOR LEADS

Finding not a diagno: Assuming ur EKG was collected correctly (i.e., the wires & patches were put on correctly), it's not entirely as expected for a person of your age & gender. You have sinus rhythm, but the spikes (R waves) do not progress between the wires as expected, & minor changes in the signals from the front (anterior) & bottom (inferior) part of the heart may be "just you" or signs of (prior?) damage. TTYD.

What does it means to have a borderline abnormal ecg?

What does it means to have a borderline abnormal ecg?

Ecg: Borderline abnormal means the ECG isn't definitely abnormal but doesn't quite look perfectly normal.

Rightward axis boderline ECG please explain?

Rightward axis boderline ECG please explain?

ECG: We measure many kinds of things on ECG. Borderline findings generally are of little significance. You should ask your doc whether yours have any meaning or are no problem.

I get borderline on ECG result what dørs it mean?

Not clear: Usually when an ECG is read as borderline normal, it means that there are no significant findings however not entirely compatible with normal ECG criteria. In most cases, this would be nothing to worry about. Discuss with your doctor.

My ECG result is abnormal borderline what can I do?

ECG: Borderline abnormal is a. Nonspecific finding. Should discuss with your doctor who knows your specific data.

Is borderline ECG with right atrial overload okay?

Ecg: Borderline ECG with right atrial overload pattern is a nonspecific finding. You should discuss with your doctor whether it has meaning in you.

On ECG results rightward axis boderline ECG nornal sunius rhythm?

Possible hemiblock: An abnormal right axis plus minimally prolonged qrs duration defines what is termed a left posterior hemiblock (block of the posteroinferior fascicle of the left branch of the bundle of his). An abnormal right axis can also occur in conditions with elevated right heart pressure and resultant right ventricular enlargement. Normal sinus rhythm means no rhythm disturbance.

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

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

I do not know: Your dr. Who knows you best, will take that reading and compare it to your overall physical condition, and most likely it will be fine, but they need to discuss it with you to be sure.

I had an ECG done. Borderline low voltage in frontal leads. Borderline st elevation anterolateral leads means?

EKG: Ekg by itself doesn't mean anything. It has to be matched with the clinical picture. For example hear attack symptoms with st elevation can be active heart attack. Minimal st elevation without any symptoms could be something called j point elevation. Low voltage most of the time are normal but rarely could be seen in fluid around the heart.

Borderline ECG, These Minor Changes are of Equivocal Significance only. Sinus Rhythm T wave changes in anterior leads.

Borderline ECG: I am not certain of the circumstances leading to your having an ECG. T wave changes in anterior leads could be a sign of underlying atherosclerotic heart disease. Risk factors for this include high Blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and 1st degree female relative with heart attack before 60 or 1st degree male relative with heart attack before 50. You need to see a physician

I had an EKG done it came there sinus rhythm incomplete right bundle on branch block borderline ECG what does this mean is it serious?

Unremarkable: Incomplete right bundle branch can be a normal variant in 15% of the adult population. It does not carry any significance. Left bundle branch does. Further it refers to the conduction system of the heart, or electrical wiring of it so to speak, and it means your right ventricle gets a signal to pump few milliseconds after the left side. No worries.

MY Exercise tolerance test report states that "Borderline ST changes in Inferior and Lateral Leads as compared to resting ECG. AGE 46 Male?

MY Exercise tolerance test report states that "Borderline ST changes in Inferior and Lateral Leads as compared to resting ECG. AGE 46 Male?

Depends: Borderline ECG changes on stress testing do not meet criteria for abnormality, which is 1mm (one tiny box) of horizontal or downsloping ST segment depression. This is notable to comment on as part of a complete report, but must be taken in context with the whole test - i.e. any symptoms with exertion, was nuclear imaging or echo imaging also done, how long did you go on the test, etc.

I'm 17 and I have been diagnosed 2 wks ago with wpw. 4 year ago I had a borderline ecg, How did a dr not pick up on it then? Can it come and go on ecg?

I'm 17 and I have been diagnosed 2 wks ago with wpw. 4 year ago I had a borderline ecg, How did a dr not pick up on it then? Can it come and go on ecg?

WPW is a syndrome: Of fainting in young adults with EKG evidence for ventricular pre excitation. If you don't faint then you don't have WPW. What you have is ventricular pre excitation. The bypass tract can be very weak and will be variable on EKG. It is easy to miss it. You have asked lots of questions about this and LBBB. You should consider a consultation so you can have a focused approach to you concerns.

I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?

Cardiologist: These T wave abnormalities are nonspecific and it's important to compare them to any prior EKG if one is available. If none are available the findings may not necessarily be due to any cardiac pathology and may even be a normal variant in a young woman. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and examine you and recommend further testing like an echocardiogram if deemed advisable.

I'm a 17 and I was recently told that I have wpw, 4 yr I had a borderline ecg and my recent came back with a wider qrs complex, Can wpw come & go (ecg)?

See my previous: Answer. The bypass tract can have variable conduction and be dependent on heart rate. Sometimes apparent and other times invisible on EKG. WPW does not come and go as it is a syndrome. Ventricular pre excitation can come and go depending on the characteristics of the bypass tract.

What does it mean when an ECG says borderline and extreme right superior axis deviation. Slight high lateral repolarization disturbance consider Ische?

EKG: Consider ischemia which is not enough blood getting to heart because of blocked arteries or an aortic stenosis or old heart attack. Would be good to know how old you are and what other problems you have to give better answer. Happy to do 2nd opinion now.

What does sinus rhythm - borderline short pr interval mean on an ecg?

Usually nothing.: The pr interval, the time between the p wave (atria contract) and the qrs (ventricles contract) is typically between 0.12 and 0.20 seconds. If it is a bit shorter than 0.12 seconds but the ECG is otherwise normal, there is generally nothing to be concerned about. If you have episodes of heart racing, you should tell your doctor, as there may be a condition in which you are prone to fast rhythms.

Causes of borderline repolarization abnormality (ST dep & abnormal T)? Rest of ECG normal and echo normal.

Causes of borderline repolarization abnormality (ST dep & abnormal T)? Rest of ECG normal and echo normal.

It is likely you are: Referring to a computer interp. Of your EKG. The computer program is slanted to indicate any potential abnormality no matter how insignificant. Ask a human with EKG experience (many FP and IM MDs do not possess any skills in reading EKGs they just read the English) to interpret the EKG for you. Odds are it is completely normal for you. You can attach it to an inbox consult with me if you want.
