How common is it for routine ED EKG readings to point out something "abnormal" in the comments section of the print-out? I've shadowed at several ED's and was also a recently admitted for food poisoning/fluid loss/syncope. I know that when I shadowed in 3 different ED's, it seemed like pretty much every patient's EKG said something about an "abnormality" in the interpretation/comments (text) section. My own recent reading said "prolonged QT" but no one ever brought it up at any point during my stay in the ED. So I'm curious to know if most peoples' readings will say something along the lines of "abnormal" in the comments, but one actually goes by the graph itself?
