ECG Results check

Resolved Question:

Hi there, I just had an ECG and was told that all is fine. On re-reviewing the rsult later it refers to a "probable old aterolateral infarct" and an abn St-T Q> 30ms , V2-V6.

The full ECG is attached so i wanted to check whether i should follow up.   Thanks, Andrew

Any symptoms?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Dr Phil,

I'd had some check pains but the GP was quite sure they were muscular. No shortness of breath or anything else... the pains seemed to come on with certain movements and were not constant. The ECG (hopefully you can see attached) was just to double check

I think this is an abnormal reading by the ECG computer.
It often reads incorrectly.
I think you need an echo to be sure but likely it is nothing

Ok thanks - so nothing to be concerned about based on the charts? , I will see about getting an Echo done. I will provide a positive rating - thanks!
