Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have not attached the ECG here. So, please attach it so that I can interpret it.

Otherwise, for hypertension, he should be on medicine so as to keep his BP less than 140/90 mmHg. So, also let me know if he is receiving the antihypertensive medicine.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have just uploaded the report, you should have uploaded the photo of the whole ECG. Anyway, the doctor has mentioned that there is an ST-segment depression in inferior walls. These changes suggest that there is some kind of stress over the heart, that stress could be high BP, or some blockages in the heart, or sometimes even present normally. This should be evaluated further.

I would like to have a look at the ECG so I can suggest the further course. Does he have any symptoms like chest heaviness or pain especially during exertion or walking which relieves with rest? If yes, this points towards the blockages. Anyway, considering the report, he should undergo treadmill test and echo test to look for heart function. Overall, it does not appear to be a worrisome matter but should be evaluated so as to be sure.

All the best.
