Where To Put Ecg Leads
Medical Diagnostics: This is simply that the t waves seen on this ECG were not normal but they were also not diagnostic of any condition. Ekgs have specific changes that correlate with specific and commonly seen cardiac damage. This is just a way of saying there is nothing here that explains any disease. It is not to be worried over. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
I know that standard ecg has 12 leads, but sometimes on some ecg I see additional strip. What is this is there a 13th lead? Could you pls explain
Don't worry: Nothing to worry about. Baseline wander on the ECG means that the straight line in between the spikes and waves is not so straight! it can wiggle up and down due to electrical interference, a problem with the electrical lead or pad, or oil/lotion/hair on the chest which can interfere with the electrical conduction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it bad if the P and the R wave are the same amplitude and shape on all leads from an ECG and what does this mean. Amplitude for both was 3.5 mm.
8 mths ago ECG was normal. 3 mths ago ECG had pointed P wave 2.5 mm. 2 days ago P wave was 3. 5mm on all leads Is the increase in amplitude and pointedness something that needs investigating & causes?
The P wave on my ECG was pointed including on leads V1 and 2. The amplitude was 2 mm. What are the possible causes?
Normal: This sounds like a normal finding.Get a more detailed answer ›
Ecg: Very slight ST elevation is likely nothing to be concerned about in and of itself. The waves on an ecg need to be interpreted in light of clinical situations as there are multiple possible reasons for most variations from absolutely normal on these tracings. In a 19y/o minimal ST elevation is highly unlikely to represent an MI unless associated with specific symptoms. ...Read more
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. ...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 ?
