It can be anything from angina to myocardial infarction depending upon the type of changes in the ECG or it can be old changes. If the doctor has admitted the patient i am guessing it will be Myocardial Infarction which is usually called as Heart attack. Kindly consult the concerned doctor or if you can show me the recent ECG and any older ECG then i can tell you the correct diagnosis.

This can be any thing from just old changes in ECG to Myocardial Infarction(Heart attack) depending on the type of changes in ST segment and T-wave. If the doctor has admitted the patient i am guessing it to be M.I.
If you can show me picture of a recent ECG and an old ECG i can make a probable diagnosis otherwise consult your respective doctor who admitted the patient.

Thanks,

I have just been for pre-op tests and the ECG shows Inferior infarct (40+MS Q wave and/or St/t abnormality in II/AVF) probably old anteroseptal infarct (40+ MS Q wave in V1-V4) age undetermined. Moderate ST depression (0.05+ MV ST depression) Abnormal ECG I am 64 years of age and the op is still going ahead. I have absolutely no idea what the above means. Did I have a mild heart attack at some time. I am healthy, exercise regularly and eat fairly sensibly. Thanks Liz

I was hospitalized yesterday for very high bp (avg 190/115), did an ecg and had abnormal t-wave (inverted). They gave me a shot of nitro and iv injected beta blocker...a few hours later, bp returned to normal (128/82 avg). They released me, but I m going for a stress test in the next couple of days. Today my bp was high again this a.m., but is now averaging 90/60 or less, is this a sign of something serious going on, and should I get back to the hospital? I am a calm person, I d just rather be safe than sorry.

My parents brought me to the emergency room because I was having chest pains, shortness of breath, I was getting tired very easily (after taken a couple steps), and having severe body sensitivity to touch. They made me go through the triage center and when they saw my heart rate was reaching up to 146 they admitted me. While in the ER my heart rate was maximum 186 and the doctors there could not find anything through the EKG, X-rays, and all the other tests they had administrered to help them find something to explain my rapid heart rate and tiredness. Well, I was admitted as an impatient the next day after going home and having diarrhea and vomiting all night. I stayed in the hospital a total of 3 1/2 days and they could not find anything wrong with me internally, from what they could see.

My general doctor who is also a cardiologist has already done a 2D echo-cardiogram and has put me on a holter monitor for 24 hours, hoping something would show up. the holter monitor showed that my heart rate goes up to 190 and he is so puzzled as to what it could be. He is thinking I have had this my whole life but only started noticing these symptoms now. He now wants to admit me in a hospital that specializes in cardio issues and is already consulting with anther doctor but they have not made a final decision yet as to what tests they want me to do and where they want to send me.

What could this be?
