Will atherosclerosis of the femoral artery affect heart beat and ekg?

No. Ekgs measure the electrical activity of the heart. Palpitations ( irregular heartbeats) are also a function of the electrical activity in the heart. Neither of these will be affected by having atherosclerosis in the femoral artery of the leg.
No, but.... Not because of femoral artery atherosclerosis per se. However atherosclerosis is generally wide spread and if there is significant narrowing of the arteries of the heart, it can result in abnormal ekg and abnormal heart rhythm.

My EKG reading was 54, could that be the beginning of bradychardia? My mom has a slow heart beat and a heart murmur. I'm concerned I will get a murmur

Bradycardia. Bradycardia in a person who is physically very active is normal. If you are performing aerobic exercise on a regular basis, do not worry about a heart rate of 54 bpm. A heart murmur can be benign, albeit if you develop it later in life, you need to be evaluated; however, there is very little correlation between bradycardia and a heart murmur (far-fetched correlations exist however).

That depends! There are arrythmias that are common and not serious - and arrythmias that are dangerous. A lot depends on your age and overall medical condition. Your cardiologist may do an echocardiogram - a soundwave test to look at your heart "squeeze" and valve function. They may do a "stress test" to see how well your heart works when you exercise. In the meantime, call if you have symptoms! Read more...

16 yr old male. Occasional chest pains, and random fast heart beat mostly at night. Had recent EKG and physical. Is this anxiety related or a concern?

Anxietry IS concern. I can't help thinking that a teen ought not have either cardiac issues or anxiety chronic or severe enough to cause such symptoms. But, reality is what it is. Ask your parent(s) to bring you to the doctor for a referral to a CBT therapist who can guide you to skills to avoid, reduce and manage anxiety. You'll have a much better chance for a good life and fun memories of what should be your youth. Read more...
