    Could someone please read my ecg

    thanks vitdoc, I've had the occasional missed beats for as long as I can remember but the frequency with which they are occurring now is new. At my last echo in March my AV peak gradient was 47 and mean 27. My next echo is scheduled for March next year. If they continue like they are currently I...

    Could someone please read my ecg

    Hi and thanks for responding. I'm usually fairly active but don't really exercise as such and suffered from multiple bilateral pulmonary embolism in March so am still recovering from that. I'm aware how important magnesium and potassium are for heart health and take regular baths with magnesium...

    Could someone please read my ecg

    thanks for your response, Carol. I'm 53 and missed beats are not new to me but the frequency in which they have started to occur is. There really hasn't been a let up in the last few days. I don't feel any different, it's just the constant palpitations. If they are still hanging around at the...

    Could someone please read my ecg

    Hello, Wondering if someone could please help me with reading this ecg. I bought a Sonohealth ecg reader a while back, and most of the time it puts my mind at rest when I feel my heart is beating weird. For the last couple of days I have been having a lot of missed beats and wondering if this...

    High Lp(a) increases speed of AVS progression

    Interesting...thanks for the info Nocturne. Do you think it's possible for someone with a BAV to also have this? My AVA reading has gone from 1.6cm to 1.1cm in just under a year....this seems very fast to me.

    Fast progression of AVA reading

    Hello, I recently had an echo with a new private Cardiologist (was previously a public patient) and my AVA reading was 1.1cm with a mean gradient of 23 and max gradient of 44. I didn't have the previous echo reports with me, nor could I recall the previous reading and my Cardiologist didn't have...

    Beta blocker

    Hi, yes, had the CT angio. I was able to call the Radiology clinic this morning and they suggested not to take the morning dose which I didn't. I had very little sleep and HR was in the high 40's when I woke. CT angio went well with HR at 50. Was extremely lightheaded and have been most of the...

    Beta blocker

    Hi Agian, was wondering if there were any Adelaidians around......I'm from southern Adelaide too. Beautiful part of the world. Would have been nice to be one of those that could grow old without any changes but it seems that's not to be.......I'm a bit of a realist so will just roll with it...

    Beta blocker

    Makes sense that they want to smooth it out. I wish my HR was low due to fitness but unfortunately I also have muscular skeletol issues that prevent me from doing more than incidental excercise. I've seen my HR go into the 30's on a regular basis and a resting HR in the high 40's occasionally.

    Beta blocker

    Hi Anne, it was my Cardiologist that prescribed the beta blocker and he knew what my resting heart rate was. I also had to get some medication from the Nurse as I have a reaction to the contrast that they inject. The Nurse told me that quite often people are on the beta blocker for days before...

    Beta blocker

    Hello, a first poster here :) I was diagnosed with a bicuspid aortic valve, dilated aorta and a mitral valve prolapse 8 years ago and have been asymptomatic until very recently. My cardiologist has ordered a ct angiogram which is being done tomorrow for which he has prescribed a beta blocker to...
