J-Point on EKG
Just had my cardio eval done yesterday. 48 yr old male history of benign pvc's, controlled hypertension & on statin for hyperlidimia. Dad died of MI at 56....autopsy reveiled CAD. I'm non smoker with bmi of 24.9, bp 118/78 etc etc.. On beta blocker for HTN and PVC'S......Have had previous thallium stress, echo's and routine annual GP visits with all good results.....

My question is yesterdays EKG report....Normal s1, phsiologically split s2 w/1/16th ejection murmur radiating from apex to base. PR interval of 0.16, QRS 0.08, QT of Blank, and axis of 32 degrees. Evidence of J-point elavation in 2,3 and aVF however when compared with previous ekg there has been no change. (1 yr ago).......I'm a little concerned about the "j-point" elavation because i hear its linkes to SCD....Any help with this ?  My cardio doc says i'm fine...

Hi there,

I think the most significant finding for me is that the j-point elevation is "unchanged". I think thats why your doc said he wasnt concerned. Cardiologists always look to compare EKGs with prior studies. New changes usually catch their attention, otherwise all is well. Also, it sounds like youve been feeling pretty good lately. No nasty cardiac symptoms. Another reason not to worry.

Take care
