Would you take an antiarrhythmic drug to maintain normal sinus rhythm?

Would you take an antiarrhythmic drug to maintain normal sinus rhythm?

Maybe: It depends. It won't prolong life or prevent strokes, but it may improve the quality of life if atrial fibrillation is significantly bothersome. Cather ablation is another option if drugs don't work or have significant side effects. ...Read more

Ekg says normal sinus rhythm, nonspecific st abnormality, abnormal ecg, what does this mean?

The bottom line, the ECG findings need to be placed in the clinical context in which it was taken, and compared to previous and subsequent ECGs. ...Read more

What is the significance of incomplete left bbb? My son is 32 years old ECG showed normal sinus rhythm BP is 135/71 .

What is the significance of incomplete left bbb? My son is 32 years old  ECG showed normal sinus rhythm BP is 135/71 .

Often very little: Incomplete left bundle branch block often means that there's delay rather than complete block in a portion of the heart's wiring. While this can progress to complete block in that portion of the wiring, that still leaves the right bundle unaffected.

My ECG results interpreted that I have normal sinus rhythm, leftvaxis deviation and inferolateral wall ischemi. Can you explain?

ECG: Ecg usually read by a computer program and overread by a doctor. Sinus rhythm is the normal heart rhythm, left axis deviation describes the electrical direction of the heart activity and inferolateral ischemia refers to some changes in the ECG pattern which can be seen with abnormal heart blood flow but are not specific. Talk to your doc to discuss. ...Read more
