Hi I was seaqrching the internet and see something about these and I have a handheld EKG monitor and I think I have these it looks like a normal wave with a I had slight dip on the end of it. I had a check up at the dr a week ago and they said they that it looked fine. Wondering if maybe its just my little handheld ekg thing or if its something I should ask about? I have read it could just be a normal variation or it could be something not so good. I do not have a copy or the one my dr did to see if it was present on there.

Kyle confused

Hi Kyle,

Never hurts to ask. I'm sure your handheld is not able to fully visualize an EKG the way a 12 lead EKG does. Which model do you have?

its a MD100A1 from china medical all i could afford. It has the 3 little pads you put on and has auto detect for any issues and it always says its normal, no chest pain or anything. I did just receive a single upside down T wave not sure if it was a mistake or not.

take care

Hi Kyle,

I don't think the T-Wave flips back and forth. From what I learned, an inverted T-Wave is normal in several leads as represented by a 12 lead EKG (not in everyone, but the findings in those leads would not trigger concern), is normal in children to a certain age, and every so often, is normal for some people all their lives. A T-Wave that was positive, then permanently becomes inverted, (except for the groups identified, obviously theirs becomes positive at some point) is always considered pathological.

I looked at your monitor, very interesting, do you send any of the rhythms you capture to your doctor?

Kyle,
 
If you need an accurate reading, you should validate your ECG monitor by comparing it with others, such as those in your doctor's office or medical clinics. Most units can take a reading within a minute or two.
 
Inverted T-waves are not uncommon, and you don’t need to be overly anxious about them as long as you continue to feel well and have normal echocardiograms and stress tests.
 
When you see your Dr. on Monday perhaps a copy of your personal monitor results and ECG from the office  can be compared side by side to see if the abnormality is visible on both ?
 
I will be watching for an update after your Dr. appointment.
 
Kindly,
Kitt
