What Does It Mean When My EKG Says Vent. Rate 66 BPM?

The ventilation rate is the amount of times that your heart will beat every 60 seconds when you are relaxed. Of course, if this measurement was taken in mid-exercise, it would be quite challenging to establish an average for all of the patients that a doctor sees. Every person is different!

It can be difficult to fully interpret what your EKG means without knowing more about your personal circumstances. When a doctor has information about your medical history, it's easier to find out if the results from one of these assessments will be a cause for concern. Asking your GP for more information is also worthwhile if you want a professional explanation of what this EKG means in your own situation.

Gauging the doctor's reaction is always a good way to interpret whether or not the EKG results are good or bad. Usually, if there is a problem relating to one form of measurement, such as the QRS duration, RR interval or PR interval, a more in-depth examination relating to that certain cardiovascular function will be ordered.

You should be very hesitant to read up on the results of other people on discussion boards. Even though some of their results may appear to be similar to yours, their body weight and overall health will mean that the course of action following on from this news is considerably different.

Okay,so  ventricular rate means the frequency of heart beat,66 is normal,maybe a bit low,but that's okay.  Your RR interval is just a bit long,but that can be a result of your 66 beat/min heartbeat.  PR interval is okay,maybe a bit short.  QRS duration is just perfect,it's normally 80.  QTc interval is okay. (I'ts counted from QT interval)     These rates are normal,  but of course I can't say it's a normal EKG. I would have to see it (because seeing would reveal some more important information) and know your past history.
