Failed ekg

My daughter is 22 and was going in to have breast implants. They said she failed her ekg. Said she could have a heart attack? She’s always had low blood pressure. Would could this mean? Her father died of a stroke at the age of 47. I could use some help. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Tamra

    I would recommend that you get further medical advice especially with your family history. It’s worrying for them to make a statement like that but with no further tests.  Hope it all works out.

    I would bring her to a dr and get it evaluated maybe another ekg or a monitor for 24hrs that may provide insight and could give clarity could be meds but at least that can give a diagnoses

    She needs to see heart specialist and maybe wear a Holter for 24 hours . I did recently and have an extra heart beat . ECG can change every time you have one . I’ve had a lot and last one showed irregular heart beat , just luck it did it at that time . But I’m sure you will look into it. I would advise anyone against bemrest implants , seen too many over the years go wrong after a while

    Make sure she gets a tomography scan..It's like an MRI for the heart. The only way to see if she really had a heart attack. EKGs often show false positives on women. I had the same thing, thought I had a heart attack on keg, Tomography proved I did not. Good luck and God Bless!! (
