What does it mean when an EKG report says: Normal sinus rythym, early transition, otherwise normal EKG?
The QRS complex should be negative in lead V1 and positive in lead V6. The QRS complex should show a gradual transition from negative to positive between leads V2 and V4. The equiphasic lead is referred to as the transition lead. When the transition occurs earlier than lead V3, it is referred to as an early transition. When it occurs later than lead V3, it is referred to as a late transition.
Is that bad? Or does it mean the lead was placed wrong? Thanks for the quick reply!
A healthy patient w/routine EKG pre-op. Dormant auto immune disease, otherwise healthy. It happened today when shadowing, and the doctor said it was nothing, but the patient wanted to know and I couldn't answer. So I got curious. Thanks!
EKG's are just to detect the heart rythm and rate. doesnt matter if its slightly abnormal, depending if it changes as the leads continue.
