AF Association

Anybody know what these ECG findings mean?

Had a 12 lead ECG with 3 printouts over a 3 minute period while in AF ( very mild and almost no symptoms )

The first one - NSR with short PR. Otherwise normal ECG

The second one - NSR . Nonspecific T wave abnormality -Unconfirmed Abnormal ECG

The third one - accelerated . Junctional rhythm ( no P waves found ) . Nonspecific ST and T wave abnormality - Unconfirmed Abnormal ECG

I had a catheter ablation 9months ago and take bisoprolol and warfarin

I am due to have a follow up appointment with the E.P. In June .

Does anyone know if the above is to be expected or will I need another ablation?

The p wave is the little blip before the big spike which is the T wave. In AF the p wave is missing. Upside down T waves are ectopic beats usually.. Try not to worry about what may or may not happen. If you need it you will get it.

Is there any site you could recommend where this pattern can be seen?


Thanks Bob for the explanation

I'm not worried ( seemed to have been on this journey for so long ,so been through every emotion ) now at the stage of being very interested. What I am particularly interested in is the Junctional rhythm.Is this another arrhythmia ? I have or had ,not sure which symptom belongs to which arrhythmia , AF ,AT and Flutter starting to feel very greedy if this is another one !


Are these printed diagnoses not just suggestions that the ECG machine is conjuring up each time from the rhythm it has recorded?
