help me to understand the meaning of ECG results. Rate 86 PR 164 QRSD
85 QT 384 QT 459 Axis P 37 QRS -30 T 26: leftward axis QRS axis -15
to -30 Late transition QRS negative in V5 or V6 Consider left atrial
enlargement P V1 -.10 mV or more negative Diffuse nonspecific T abnormalities
T neg T/QRS ratios < .05 ANT/LAT/INF.
do these readings suggest as possible condition?
you very much for your question.
rate Normal Results: 60 to 100 beats per minute.
interval measures from the beginning of the p wave to the beginning
of the QRS. A normal range is between 120ms (3 small boxes) and 200
complex is a name for the combination of three of the graphical deflections
seen on a typical electrocardiogram (ECG)
for normal QRS duration have been defined as between 60ms (milliseconds)
the QT interval is a measure of the time between the start of the
Q wave and the end of the T wave in the heart's electrical cycle
cites the QT "normal range" as being 350-440 ms.
axis helps to analyze that your QRS interval is in the proper axis
(no deviation into an improper axis). You have 3 axis measurenents,
although you have only provided the "P" portion of those
measurements. The axis is determined by which direction the electrical
signals generated by your heart are traveling toward the leads of
the EKG. Normal range for each of these values should be between -30
to +90. So, a "-30" is not terribly worrisome.
and V6 are referred to as the left precordial leads. The precordial
leads view the heart's electrical activity in the so-called horizontal
plane. The QRS complex should be negative in lead V1 and positive
in lead V6.
atrial enlargement (LAE) or left atrial dilation refers to enlargement
of the left atrium (LA) of the heart, and is a form of cardiomegaly.
is a medical condition wherein the heart is enlarged.
wave is part of the complex that doctors look at on an EKG. The T
wave occurs when the heart relaxes. There are many reasons that a
T wave could be abnormal. Sometimes it is just how the heart looks
on EKG and it is not anything to worry about. Sometimes when the heart
does not get the blood it needs (ischemia) there can be t wave changes
and this requires an urgent work up. Also some of the electrolytes
in blood (eg. Potassium) can cause changes in the T wave if the levels
are abnormal. There are many other causes, but they are rarer.
