Are my home EKG results good? Or is there a problem?




Question: Are my home EKG results good? Or is there a problem? I have very mild mitral valve regurgitation. Before I did the EKG, I just ate and I was very concerned about the chest pain. I have attached my two EKG reports here. Are they normal? They were taken consecutively, 1 minute apart, the one with 106 heart rate was taken first and the second one with 93 heart rate was taken later). I see some broad peak in the second one. I am not sure if it is an error or something else.

Answer: Hello. I have received, read your question and have taken a look at the info you uploaded. The EKG (electrocardiogram) mainly seems to be of a normal heart. There is no obvious sign of ischemic heart disease or any other issues of rhythm and electrical conduction of heart. The peak you are most concerned about is a simply nothing. It is an artifact and is a recording error of the stylus.
