ECG Results: Inferior OMI?
Doctor … I’m Lina, 44 years old. Last month at the office there was a medical checkup, one of which was an EKG. Results from the ECG: Inferior OMI.
Thank you for the question.
Through electrocardiography (ECG) tests, various heart disorders can be detected, including OMI (old myocardial infarction, old myocardial infarction) as your case.
Myocardial infarction (MI) is a medical designation for a heart attack. This condition occurs when blood flow to the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply the heart muscle with oxygen and nutrients, is completely blocked, causing the heart muscle to be damaged and disrupted. This blockage usually occurs because of a buildup of atherosclerotic plaque, which consists mainly of piles of cholesterol and bad fats. Clinically, MI can cause sufferers to feel the dominant uncomfortable sensations appearing in the left chest, such as in the form of sensations of pressure, pain, heat, tightness, heaviness, and so on. These complaints can appear accompanied by excessive cold sweat, weakness, dark vision, dizziness, nausea, and many other complaints.
Not infrequently, MI symptoms are misinterpreted by sufferers as muscle aches, heartburn, or other milder conditions, so they are not immediately consulted by a doctor. The consequences of this can vary, can occur more severe heart tissue damage, or it can also occur the formation of scar tissue that replaces the damaged heart muscle. If this is the second condition that you are experiencing, then this is the possibility that causes the appearance of OMI on your ECG examination.
People who have had MI may be at higher risk for recurring MI or other heart problems later in life. Could be, chest pain to the spine that you experience when this happens due to heart problems. But it could also, the pain you feel is caused by other factors, such as muscle pain, nerve pain, bronchitis, pleurisy, gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, rheumatoid arthritis, psychosomatic disorders, panic attacks, scoliosis, injury, and so on.
To be sure, of course, brief information like this is not enough. Try to check your condition directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine in order to be given appropriate treatment huh .. In the meantime, you can first compress your chest to your painful spine with warm water. Do not forget, multiply to exercise, eat regularly, drink plenty of warm water, no worries or excessive stress, adequate rest, and do not carelessly take medicine without a recommendation from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
