Default "minor right axis deviation" (stress pulmonary heart)


I just looked at the result of my treadmill stress
test. The final interpretation was "normal", however -
when I read the fine print this comment was included:

"Resting pre-stress 12 lead EKG showed a minor right
axis deviation."

Here is right-axis deviation explained:

"If the right ventricle becomes hypertrophied, the
axis will swing towards the right: the deflection in
lead I becomes negative (predominantly downward) and
the deflection in lead III will become more positive
(predominantly upward)(Fig. 1.15). This is called
‘right axis deviation’. It is associated
mainly with pulmonary conditions that put a strain on
the right side of the heart, and with congenital heart
disorders."


I could have heart damage, but because I was able to
perform to some minimum, all the test was designed to
measure - the result was given a label of "normal",
and the doctors didn't bother doing any followup.

You are going to inspire me to get copies of my
stress test if you keep this up.
