    ECG Results!

    Had an ecg at walkin today. Went through it with nurse and it said ecg normal and normal sinus rhythm. There were numbers at the top for PR, QRS and QT. Meant to write them down but forget, QRS was 88ms, only one I can remember. Rang walkin and they won't let me come and get a copy and they can't give out the numbers over the phone. They say I have to see my GP next week if want further details. I am now worried they are hiding something like a long QT. If the QT or PR had been outside the range would the ecg report have still said ecg normal? Is not helping my anxiety!

    If the ECG was sophisticated enough to have a QT number then I assume it would also have a warning if it exceeded certain limits.

    Didn't you ask your cardiologist or doctor to explain it?

    What is it that makes you so fearful that you can't trust the good results you got?

    Best source would be your doctor. A simple phone call is all that's needed. Much easier than speculating and worrying over nothing. My understanding is that it has to do with the time it takes for blood to travel within the heart but I'm not a doctor. Bottom line is that you were told nothing is wrong.

    It means nothing. Precordial is simply the area of your body in front of the heart/chest area. Repolarization has different definitions in biology depending on what system you're talking about, but I would imagine in this case it's implying the resting potential. I wouldn't think about it anymore than you already have.
