- What does “marked sinus arrythmia” on an EKG mean?
- Q: I just had an EKG this morning–I am 54 and have never had one before. My doctor decided I should have one done as a part of my physical. I know that the EKG needs to be evaluated by the doctor, but it noted “marked sinus arrythmia” on it. Should I be concerned? What does it mean? I feel fine and have great blood pressure and my cholestral is also ok. Is it something that runs in families–my brother, mother, and father had heart problems. Would appreciate some info so I know if I should start worrying!
- A: While the other respondent’s math derived suppositions of the definition of “sinus” is colorful as it is creative, it bears no relationship to the medically accepted meaning of “sinus rhythm.” A sinus beat describes a cardiac electrical origin arising from a specific anatomical point, the collection of specialized pacemaker cells better known as the Sinus node (aka “sino-atrial” node). Further, the EKG only records electrical activity and is unable to detect mechanical phenomena (ie valve opening or closing, et cetera) of the heart.Sinus arrhythmia is simply a change in heart rate that is coincidental to the respiratory pattern. That is, when you inhale the heart rate speeds up a little and when you exhale it slows back down. This is caused by stimulation of the nervous system with pulmonary movement. It is considered an absolutely normal finding in children and young adults, and usually (but not always) disappears with age. It is considered medically normal and nothing needs to be done; that is, you won’t have to take any “pills” for this. Additionally, the printed diagnosis on the top of the EKG is usually the result of manufacturer’s inclusion of a software diagnostic program, to help distinguish their brand over those of other makers as an added feature. These software programs are wrong up to 90% of the time. As a matter of fact, new doctors & nurses, are specifically taught to ignore whatever is written there and to look at the EKG themselves. Good luck, and be careful what you read. Ralph
- Anyone know about Sinus Bradycardia or Sinus Arrythmia? Please read on….?
- Q: I got my EKG/ECG results today and they said that is what I have. They also did a blood test and said that something I have no idea about, a LOW LEVEL CRP test- 1.00 mg/L =Low1.00-3.00mg/L=Average & 3.00mg/L=High (2x)Mine says I have 4.78 mg/LWhat the heck does that really mean? Anyway, is there any medicine I should talk to my doctor about or is this something that I will always have or what? Someone please tell me what all this means?
- A: Sinus bradycardia is where the heart is beating normally but slower than normal (less than 60 beats per minute). A sinus arrhythmia is where the heart beat is abnormal but normal rate (between 60 and 100 beats per minute). CRP is C-Reactive Protein. It raises in the presence of inflammation.So, your heart might be either too slow or not beating properly and your body might have some kind of inflammation. The solution may be medication to speed your heart up or to make it beat more effectively as well as an anti-inflammatory (steroid?) to address the high CRP.
