Soooo..........I grabbed a copy of the reports from my latest EKG and Holter. I was told they were normal except for a low rate (50s resting, down into 30s asleep; but typical for me). Looking at them myself, I have some concerns.
Can anyone help? BTW I do sometimes have cardiac-like symptoms.
EKG Result: "Sinus bradycardia. Poor initial forces, nonspecific, probably normal." Then below that:
I cannot tell if those last two lines mean that the lines above marked with (C) are abnormal?? All lines have it (except for 4 of them with "no reported values"). E.g.: "Heart Rate 52 BPM (C)"
Also, at the bottom, it says:
"The following results differed from their previous value:
Interpretation Old Value: Sinus Bradycardia
-Abnormal precordial QRS contours -nondiagnostic for this age.
Followed by "New Value:" and then the same result about
initial forces etc.
What are initial forces, do their being poor mean bad things; and does that mean the same as the abnormal precordial QRS contours? "ABNORMAL" doesn't sound very normal to me, but maybe they just meant it was very minor?
Any advice or experiences you can share?
