This info is from my health notes: Study is consistent with a moderately Sized LAD territory infract pattern and significant peri - infract ischemia. Infract size accounts for 7% of the LV myocardium. Ischemia accounts for 15% of the LV myocardium. Mildly depressed LV systolic function, calculated LVEF is 47%
NOW, with that said what in the world does it mean? I have had 2 chemical stress tests, Echo cardiogram, Angiogram that did not require stents, and now I am going to have an MRI on the heart in July. I originally went to my doctor because I was feeling tired all the time, he hooked me up to an EKG and then sent me to my heart specialist. A few weeks before the EKG I woke up one night drenched in sweat, and mild chest pain and slightly dizzy all of which went away very quickly and at first I thought heart attack but since the symptoms went away fairly quickly did not go into the ER/Urgent Care. (Silly Me) What does all this information amount to? Oh also the doctor said something about one of the valves may not be working properly. currently taking COREG 6.25mg, COZAAR 25mg, LIPITOR 10mg, and a whole ASPIRIN 325mg daily.
