It means that the electrical forces in the heart draws rightwards. Which could be a sign that the right half of your heart (which is responsible for pumping blood through your lungs for oxygenation) could be under strain from something, but normally rightwards axis is a normal finding in young women.
Ask your doctor what his opinion is.
Thank you! I asked my doctor and he kind of brushed me off a little, saying that there WAS something abnormal in the tracings but he thought it was fine and maybe "it was just my normal." Last time I heard that, I was undiagnosed diabetic for a few years, so I am looking into a second opinion.
What is the overall axis then? Usually ecg axis is reported as a single number and I can't figure out how to calculate it.
You can read more about the electrical axis here:
"R axis" is similar to "QRS axis".
As you can see, a normal QRS axis is between -30 degrees and +90 degrees. Some sources say -30 to +105 degrees.
In general, younger people have a more rightwards axis than older. The left ventricle tends to grow with age, drawing the electrical forces leftwards. +107 degrees can be a completely normal finding. If you are in doubt, the next step could be an ultrasound of the heart to determine right ventricular pressure.
Thank you - I was worried about cardiac problems, but in the presence of "indeterminate axis" and "incomplete right bundle branch block" I am now worried about pulmonary hypertension.
I did a stress echo and while the doctor says everything is normal, I had tricuspid valve regurgitation. I know that is also found in pulmonary hypertension. He didn't measure pulmonary pressure so now I want a second opinion from a different doctor.
