Unless you have taken at least college-level anatomy and physiology, *you* don't read EKGs.  I am not kidding.  Your average GP can do a basic read and tell if anything really unusual is there, but even he or she will need a specialist to explain anything remotely exotic.

Ask your husband's cardiologist for a an explanation in plain English.
