I had an EKG and got the results in my portal. The doctor's note says "Poor R wave progression . Borderline ECG. What does this mean?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

We cannot offer an interpretation of test results for individual readers, only a general guide. "Poor wave progression" is a term used to suggest (not prove) that a person may have anterior myocardial infarction - in other words, heart disease.

A borderline line EKG means that while nothing extraordinary is found in the results - the results aren't completely normal.

These terms are all a bit vague, generally, unless more tests are done or required. Your doctor can help you further, as to what all this means for you.
