Heart & Cardiology/abnormal ekg


Sometimes I feel like my heard stops for a sec than kicks in. I decided to get my ekg done.

I'm 37 male 6'0" 182lbs Vegan.

Ekg came back as:
Sinus bradycardia ( vent. rate < 60 bpm )
Abnormal left axis deviation (-90 deg. QRS axis < -30 deg.)
** abnormal rhythm ECG **

I wore holter fro 24 hrs but results wont be back for a week

Would you be kind and explain what it means ?
Can I still be active ( running and working out )

Thank you

Hi Luke, http://myheart.net/articles/pvc-heart-beats-are-they-dangerous/

The most likely explanation is a PVC or a PVC. These are extra heart beats and in people otherwise healthy they are common and generally of no concern. See what the holter monitor shows to see if they are happening and if they are common then sometimes an echocardiogram may be ordered to ensure that there is no underlying structural heart disease. A history and physical from a physician is also important to rule out associated symptoms such as shortness of breath or dizziness.

Hope that was helpful,
