Hi sunny ,
Earlier today I had an ECG done at the cheapest clinic I could find. The Dr. said it was normal, but when I got home I realised that he had it set for a man (I'm female) and hadn't filled out any of the other information.

This is exactly what the results said:

Diagnosis Information:
811: Sinus Bradycardia
121: Counterclockwise Rotation
***Normal ECG***

What concerns me is those stars and whether or not that's normal for a female ?

Some other info that may be useful:

I'm a 36 year old female. I weigh 208 and am five nine. I don't smoke or drink.
In another column the ecg said:
HR: 55 BPM
P Dur : 108ms
PR int: 167ms
QRS Dur:97 ms
QT/QTC int:397/382 ms
P/QRS/T axis:64/37/54 (swedish o or degrees symbol)
RV5/SV1 amp : 1.974/0.370 mV
RV5 SV1 amp : 2.344 mV
RV6/5V2 amp : 1.990/0.362 mV

I haven't a clue what any of this means, but hopefully someone can tell me if, in fact, my ECG is normal and I need not worry.

Hi GwenGwen, you should trust the doctor who said that your EKG was normal. Male or female hearts are all the same and EKG machines, regardless of the price, have to pass tests before they are allowed to be used.
The numbers that puzzle you are technical details that you should ignore.
