In brief: Heart
These are words used to describe the motion of the heart when it is looked at under ultrasound.
Global hypokinesia means the entire heart is not moving as much as it should when it beats. Septal akinesia means that the wall ofheart muscle that divides the chamber is not moving at all. This usually comes from a previous heart attack.
