I just had my annual physical (age 69). Everything seems ok: BP=123/68, all Blood Work is normal, Weight=163, Height = 6'1", exercise daily, eat healthy foods, no specific complaints except insufficient sleep (about 4 hours a night since 1994; 3 sleep studies no help). My ECG was Indeterminate.
Is this sufficient to make an appointment with a Cardiologist?
Hi, indeterminate (extreme) axis deviation on an ECG is due to incorrect ECG lead placement. So, please dont worry about this. As long you do not have symptoms of chest pain or breathlessness or palpitations or lightheadedness, you don't need to consult a cardiologist. Take care.
