As required by my 7 year old son's school, he had an ECG test and a medical clearance from his pediatrician to participate during physical education class. My son is a very active child, plays soccer, runs around like a normal kid would. When the test result was interpreted by his pediatrician he said there was something in the report that my son have to see a pediatric cardiologist for further interpretation or tests. His results were: Rhythm: SINUS QRS Axis: NORMAL PR Interval: 0.12 QRS: 0.08 QT: 0.37 Rate Atrial: 87 Ventriculars: 87 Interpretation: SINUS RHYTHM NON SPECIFIC ST T WAVE CHANGES *I dont understand this result but am worried because my son was referred to a specialist
