If you’re experiencing shortness of breath, chest pain, or other symptoms that suggest a pulmonary embolism, your healthcare provider may recommend an S1Q3T3 EKG. This diagnostic test can help detect abnormalities in your heart’s electrical activity that may indicate a blood clot in your lungs.
At Nao Medical, we offer same-day appointments for urgent care services, including S1Q3T3 EKGs. Our experienced staff and state-of-the-art technology ensure that you receive accurate and timely results.
What Is S1Q3T3 EKG?
S1Q3T3 EKG is a type of electrocardiogram that measures the electrical activity of your heart. Specifically, it looks for changes in the shape and duration of the QRS complex, which represents the electrical activity of the ventricles. In patients with pulmonary embolism, the QRS complex may be widened and the S wave in lead I and the Q wave in lead III may be deeper than normal, resulting in the characteristic S1Q3T3 pattern.
Why Do You Need S1Q3T3 EKG?
If you have symptoms of pulmonary embolism, such as shortness of breath, chest pain, or coughing up blood, your healthcare provider may recommend an S1Q3T3 EKG to help confirm the diagnosis. Other diagnostic tests, such as a CT scan or a ventilation-perfusion scan, may also be necessary.
At Nao Medical, we offer a comprehensive range of healthcare services, including urgent care, primary care, mental health, women’s health, and nutrition services.
