Glossary for Electrocardiogram changes
Medical terms related to Electrocardiogram changes or mentioned in this section include:
- Angina: Angina is a particular type of pain related to heart conditions
- Aortic stenosis: A condition which affects the aortic valve of the heart resulting in stenosis of the valve.
- Arrhythmias: The occurrence of irregular heart beats
- Atrial fibrillation: A rhythm disturbance of the heart that results in irregular and chaotic ventricular contractions.
- Atrial flutter: Heart arrhythmia where atria beat more often than ventricles
- Breath symptoms: Breath-related symptoms including breath odor
- COPD: Severe obstruction of bronchial air flow typically from bronchitis and/or emphysema.
- Cardiovascular symptoms: Symptoms affecting the heart and related vascular systems.
- Chest pain: Any chest pain must be considered as cardiac in origin until proven otherwise.
- Digoxin -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Digoxin (a heart drug) during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
- Drug overdose: A condition characterized by the consumption in excess of a particular drug causing adverse effects
- Electrolyte abnormality: An imbalance in the level of any of a number of chemicals (electrolytes) in the blood stream e.g. chloride, sodium, magnesium, potassium, calcium, phosphate and bicarbonate. Symptoms can vary depending on which electrolyte is involved and the severity of the imbalance - severe cases can readily lead to death. An electrolyte abnormality can be caused by such things excessive loss of body fluid through vomiting or diarrhea, kidney conditions, malabsorption and various drugs such as diuretics and chemotherapy drugs.
- HOCM: Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy
- Heart attack: An acute myocardial infarction
- Heart rhythm symptoms: Problems with the rhythm of the heartbeat (arrhythmias)
- Heart symptoms: Symptoms affecting the heart
- Hyperthyroidism: The excessive activity of the thyroid gland
- Hypothermia: Low body temperature
- Hypothyroidism: The decreased activity of the thyroid gland
- LEOPARD Syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by multiple lentigines, pulmonic stenosis, widely spaced eyes and deafness.
- Lithium -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Lithium during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
- Mitral stenosis: Narrowing of the mitral heart valve
- Movement symptoms: Changes to movement or motor abilities
- Myocardial infarction: blood supply to part of the heart is interrupted
- Myocardial ischaemia:
- Myocarditis: A condition which is characterized by inflammation of the muscles of the heart
- Nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the nerves
- Pericardial effusion: Occurs when there is an abnormal collection of fluid within the pericardial sac
- Pericarditis: Inflammation of the pericardium that surrounds the heart
- Pulmonary embolus: Pulmonary embolus is a condition in which a blood clot, piece of fat, or other solid substance travels through the bloodstream and lodges in a blood vessel of the lungs causing a blockage.
- Respiratory symptoms: Symptoms affecting the breathing systems.
- Smoking: The smoking of cigarettes
- Supraventricular Tachycardia: A rapid heart rate, the cause of which originates above the ventricles.
- Ventricular fibrillation: Life-threatening heart arrhythmia with rapid beating in lower chambers
- Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome: Heart arrhythmia causing increased heart rate
