Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The bulging septum needs further investigation - may be simple weakness of the wall...
ECHO is otherwise normal
It is not life threatening or has no short term effects.

The slow rate and high potentials in II also need further investigation.

National Heart Centre is the best place to go

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
