I had a EKG done on the Science Moblie Trip with my Anatomy class...
My partner (who went first) and everyone else's EKG turned out normal except for mine.
We ran it twice on me to make sure we did it right.
Same results each time.
I felt fine and the guy hosting the session said my heart could be positioned differently...
I don't think he's right.. Now three years later... can anyone tell me what this means??
I do have some chest discomfort when I do get up from laying down and pretty much movements that moves my chest inward outward, etc.
electrocardiograms may be altered by lead placement, as it is just a tracing of the electrical impulses produced by the heart as they course through the body. Certain anatomical differences may also produce an ECG that looks different than the "normal". The computer is only programmed to "read" specific looking tracings as normal or abnormal. Specific abnormalities can be determined by the computer such as inverted sequences, prolonged segments, premature ventricular contraction, etc. But, it usually takes a physician to actually interpret the tracing.
However, without knowing what the actual abnormality was, it is impossible to tell you whether or not your "abnormality" is significant.
If you are concerned, see your primary care provider and ask to have an official ECG done. Good luck.
