I just had an ECG performed at part of a weight loss program. It states the following: sinus rhythm, right axis deviation, incomplete RBBB, moderate left-precordial repolarization disturbance, consider ischemia or LV overload. What does this mean and should I make an appointment with my doctor. I have a diagnosis of Prinzmetal s angina since 2000 and had a pacemaker insert in 2005. I have not had an ECG in many years.

I am 42 years old and I was diagnosed with Stable Angina in May 2007, and put on Nitrodur Patch 0.4mg. I also went through an angiogram in June 2007, which showed Minimal blockages x2. My family doctor has stated that for someone my age that is Normal . (I had a complete Hysterectomy in 1999) I have gone through many test (stress test, Echo, EKG) everything has been returned as normal. My last EKG was done on April 22, 2008. The hospital reported to my family doctor that there were Minimal Ischemic changes , but my doctor has reviewed and stated that he is doubtful that I even have Angina. His Diagnosis is that more than likely my chest pains are due to heart burn or irritable Bowel Syndrome. I have also been told by hospital staff that I have a very low heart rate 50-55 BPM, But when I go see my family physician my heart rate has been anywhere from 56-86 BPM. What is the possibility of getting normal readings from all these tests and still have angina

When someone just drops dead from a heart attack , why can't they be saved? For example, if they are attended to right away and get to the hospital and EMT service quickly, why do they sometimes die anyway? Don t they use the defribrillator and or CPR to bring back the heart? It would be nice for someone with experience to answer (EMT, etc). A loved one of mine has recently fell over dead and could not be saved.....thank you.
