What does the Number 46 mean (result of an EKG)

Loading...

I think you have misunderstood something or been given erroneous information. A "number" value is not given by an EKG. EKG looks at :

1. The underlying rate and rhythm mechanism of the heart.
2. The orientation of the heart (how it is placed) in the chest cavity.
3. Evidence of increased thickness (hypertrophy) of the heart muscle.
4. Evidence of damage to the various parts of the heart muscle.
5. Evidence of acutely impaired blood flow to the heart muscle.
6. Patterns of abnormal electric activity that may predispose the patient to abnormal cardiac rhythm disturbances.
