Brief Answer: Common ECG finding... Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX I have gone through your ECG data and understood your concerns. Your recent ECG shows intra-atrial conduction delay, which is commonly found in patients with hypertension, pulmonary diseases and those being obese. Having conduction delay problems will increase the risk for atrial arrhythmia, especially atrial fibrillation. However, please bare in mind that this "conduction delay" is not a disease, but an ECG finding. Following healthy lifestyle and diet changes and trying to lose weight can help reduce that risk. Furthermore, keeping your blood pressure within normal ranges and controlling stress can also help. Dr.Benard

Thanks for that. I am already addressing the weight and take a good deal of exercise. I've had a considerable amount of major stress and am learning yoga and meditation. What I would like to add in is jogging and treadmill to get more aerobic exercise. I need to know if this type of exercise is safe? Thank you XXXXXXX
