I recently took my 17 yr old son for an ekg under the advisement of his Dr. The ekg came back bradycardia so I took him for an echo. The Dr told me his rate was 48 but everything is fine. On his report it says he has bradycardia with dilated lv and the second ekg d says sinus bradycardia with rate variation 48. Peaked anterior t-waves with early repolarization. I have no idea what this means and it wasn't explained to me. The measurements and calculations are
IVSd:5.7, -1.6 score
LVPWd: 7, -0.5
I also have a 12 yr old daughter who had an abnormal ekg. They said her heart was enlarged so we did an echo and they said at 4.8 she was on the line but recheck and this yr her LVPWd was 6.1 and even tho it's bigger they said don't worry. Dilated cardiomyopathy runs in my family. My dad suddenly passed last xmas eve from this and I'm worried about my kids. I don't feel I'm getting any answers. Please help!
