Re: Help w/ECG Report, Please!
If you are having a lot of anxiety over it, definitely give your doctor a call or go in to discuss it further. I just today discovered too that what is written on the EKG report (or in my case the event monitor report) is not necessarily a diagnosis, but possibilities. Mine came back (the event monitor) saying I was having sinus tachycardia up to 150 bpm all the time. So last week, when my doctor received this, she called me in and put me on a beta blocker. I had horrible side effects, went back in, explained to her that I was exercising sometimes when I called the events in and she said "well it is typed right here 'sinus tachycardia' so yes, you have that", then she sent me to a specialist today (a cardiologist specializing in EP stuff) who looked over it, interviewed me, took some more EKG samples from me, asked me about the times I called events in, and told me nothing looked abnormal at all. I told her what my doctor said and the cardiologist was surprised, and said, "yeah, your heart is going 150 bpm because you were JUMPING ROPE".
So, apparently the things an office types on the EKG report/output doesn't necessarily mean anything ... the correct diagnosis has a lot to do with what a cardiologist determines from talking with you, looking over your medical history, taking your specific circumstances into account, etc.
