In brief: Abnormal

Ekg shows electrical shifts the damaged-heart attacked muscle signal, is reduced.
Q waves or flattening of the ekg trace are seen and commented in the report. Thickening is not a usual comment. That would be seen on an echocardiogram more likely. Ventricular hypertrophy and larger signals can be identified by ekg.
