I had an ekg done and these are the results: Vent rate 67BPM; PR interval 158 ms; QRS duration 130 ms; QT/QTc 394/416 P-R-Taxes 71-67 30 . There was a note of abnormal ECG. Is this anything to be worried about and should I follow up on this??
It is difficult to interpret an ECG just from the numbers the computer puts on the ECG. I would need to see the actual ECG to give a good answer. But based on these numbers above, your QRS is a bit wide suggestive of an interventricular conduction delay of some type, perhaps a bundle branch block. These can be totally benign or can be sign that further investigation is needed. Or it could be the computer misinterpreting the waveform and putting the wrong number down, which happens more often that you would think. This is why all ECGs are interpreted by physicians, not computers. Please discuss the results of the ECG with your cardiologist. Hope this helps.
