what does a large heart mean on a person that is 33 years old and is a female . It is my sister who was admitted to the hospital 2 days ago cause she had a ekg and a cat scan that came back as abnormal . He heart rate has been real low for the past couple of days and she has been real dizzy when she walks .

An enlarged heart can indicate many things, from congestive Heart Failure to an inflamatry myopathy, at age 33 is unlikely to have CHF, unless she was born with some birth defect in the heart. Regardles of the case, an enlarged heart is something that needs to taken very seriously.
Hopefully they will identify the cause in the hospital and she could receive the kind of treatment that she needs.
