Hi.

My EKG have numbers that according to some sources show that I have bordrline QT. (HR 86/min; RR 695 ms; P 94 ms; PR 132 ms; QRS 88 ms; QT 364 ms; QTC 439 ms)
It also says SINUS RHYTHM, NORMAL EKG, UNCONFIRMED REPORT.

What does it mean? Can my pregnancy affect the results of my EKG in a way they should not be considered real?

Thanks a lot,
sampo2.

The EKG machine has basically said that your QT interval is slightly higher than normal, but still in the normal range (in other words, borderline). The QT interval represents the amount of time it takes for your heart's ventricles to contract and then repolarize, or electrically "reset" themselves for the next contraction. The information you are reading is the computer's interpretation, which is only an estimate and often inaccurate at calculating QT intervals. I would wait until you hear back from your doctor before thinking you have a prolonged QT interval. If you do, it could be completely benign anyhow, so wait until you hear back from your doctor.
Hi.

Thanks a lot for your answer.
My cardio said it is ok, she didn't pay attention to the numbers she just measured the Q waves. Anyway she put me on a holter monitor and sent me to an echocardiogram. The echo found I have a PFO and the holter results I don't know yet.

Regards,
