Do I need to go to a hospital?

I am a 76 year old man. I received a cardiogram where it is written:

Septal Infarcts;
QS in V1 V2;
R<0.15mV in V3;

What does this all mean? Am I in trouble and do I need to go to a hospital urgently?

It means that you have probably suffered (smaller) infarct(s) in the past that made you lose part of the active heart muscle.
You need to discuss the impact of it with your cardiologist.

This situation can be already there for a longer period and if you feel ok, there seems no need to go the the ER urgently.
(Keep in mind that I am No doctor)
