Brief Answer:
Your ECG is technically not right

Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma'am, I've reviewed the attached report,

After going through the details provided by you I would like to tell you that there is a probable technical error in your ECG which makes it a technically incorrect.

Here is why I am saying this:

1. In your ECG lead I is negative, I mean P wave QRS complex T wave all are inverted. It happens in two scenarios that either a technical fault or the heart is on the right side. A technical fault is more common.

2. There is a right axis deviation.

3. aVR lead is positive.

All these conditions go in favor of a technical error which is known as arm lead reversal i.e. by mistake the right arm lead was kept on the left arm or vice versa.

I would like to advise you to personally consult your doctor and confirm the same.

Feel free to ask back if you have any more doubts.

Kind regards
Dr. Bhanu Partap
