Did they order any further tests: Lab work, Echocardiogram, Stress test?
"Hypertrophy" means thickening of the heart muscle, usually from high blood pressure, and to be safe, they should be following up on that ECG.
Not yet, but I am scheduled for an appointment. so may be during that they will ask for the test(s).
Thanks for the answer. How about all the numbers? any clue?
I'm betting you counted the 10 minutes including the prep time, and usually an ECG records 8 seconds of heart history.
I can't read the numbers, but do know from both experience and from conversations with doctors that if you get any kind of pain from outside pressure, it almost never is a Cardiac event. Also, a ECG is particularly valuable to see if a heart attack is in progress or if there is a gross problem with the heart, but not particularly valuable as a diagnostic tool otherwise... but can be valuable as a baseline measurement if you have a cardiac event in the future.
thanks for the answer. Yup the ECG test was really short. I am going for another one and a stress test may be. Thanks all
That is the BOT evaluation, final decision is made by cardiologist. I have three ECG's, all had different BOT evaluations
