rsr pattern on an ecg is a common finding, often of little significance, and can be considered a normal variation. It is caused by one side of the heart, the right hand side, not conducting electircal activity as it should do. However, cometimes such a sign may indicate an underlying heart problem - which is NOT cause for alarm, as most problems/complications are easily rectified/managed. So, as has been mentioned already by someone else, I would check-up with your doctor regarding the report on your ECG, just to make sure that indeed the rsr pattern is in fact a normal variant (this can be told ny looking at other areas of the ecg) With regard to the 'soft systolic' - likely to be referring to a murmur (caused by blood flow in the heart) - but of the many causes (some of which very insignificant to others being more so) it is impossible to say which one it is without more information about your symptoms & investigations. So once again, make sure to ask your doctor about the 'soft systolic murmur' when you see him about the ecg report. Also, the fact that you are now not in hospital anymore indicates that all findings are insignificant and are a normal/suspected finding.
