It really means that the PQRS wave is flatter than normal. It indicates that the electrical impulse is different in you to the "norm". this doesn't necessarily that you have had a heart attack. I suggest you contact your own Doctor or a Cardiac specialist and get them to explain it to your satisfaction. All the best.
