Can you tell me what these numbers mean? PR:172, QT/QTc 362/423, QRSD96, p axis 62, qRS axis 14, t axis 24 on my EKG test.

Are they serious and what can be done to help them.
Thanks,

The EKG wave form configuration is analyzed with computer software and then a doctor correlates clinical evidence, symptoms and other signs to make a diagnosis.  The EKG output shows which lead (one of 12), etc. and whether normal or abnormal.

PR 172 (normal range is 120-200)
QT/QTc: QTc is QT with the heart rate is factored in.  363/423 (normal range less than  390).  A notation with that wave form states a higher than normal can be the result of electrolytic imbalance, drugs, alcohol, and ischemia.  

QRSD 96 rules out complete right bundle branch block (arrhythmia). Positive value is equal to greater than 120.  Incomplete RBBB is equal to greater than 100 and less than 120.

Axes indicate the heart is properly orientated within the chest cavity.
