My father aged 59yrs.,was admitted in hospital twice on an complain of heart attack.
ECG revealed ST elevaion in anterior leads, Trop T positive and Echo revealed severe LV dysfunction.
Echo Cardiographic report as follows:
Mitral Valve: Normal
Aortic Valve : Normal
Tricuspid Valve: Normal
Pulmonary Valve: Normal
Left Atrium 2.8cms
Left Ventricle 5.6*4.8cms
LVEF% 30 LVFS% LVPW: 0.7cm
LVEDV ml LVES ml LV Mass Grams
Right Atrium Normal
Left Ventricle Normal
Pulmonary Artery Normal
Doppler Pulmonary Flow Velocity =0.9m/sec
Aortic Flow Velocity=1.0m/sec
Mitral Flow Velocity: E=0.5; A=0.7m/sec; DT=300ms
LV Regional Wall Motion Abnormality+
Anterior Wall Akinetic
Severe LV Systolic dysfunction, LV EF=30%
Grade I LV Diastolic Dysfunction
No MR/ AR/TR/PAH
No pericardial effusion/vegetation/Clot
So, I request you to please advice a necessary step in view of this report.
I would be very much thankful if you provide answer as soon as possible.
A) I would like to understand what a âTrop T Positiveâ is in an ECG.
B) I have been advised to get an Echo and Threadmill Test done.
You have stated that Echo Test was also done for yr father.
I would like to understand what all Non-Invasive Color Doppler Tests are normally covered by default, in a Standard Echo.
Pl also read my query under the topics : âECG Interpretation and Calculationsâ and âComplete Non-Invasive Color Doppler Echo with all Modes ?â in the same âHeart Disease and Heart Attackâ Forum.
Often many labs may have an old Echo machine with rather rudimentary features â I want to avoid such labs. So, how would one look for a lab, which has the latest Echo machines for all non-invasive options of Color Doppler Echocardiography including all the Modes.
C) I wanted to analyse my own ECG and learn more about certain ECG Axis calculations etc. However, I have been informed that currently, we cannot upload any attachment like for eg, and ECG Report.
So, I am curious to know how other users in this forum are getting their ECG Reports analysed.
