EKG: "Delayed Transition"
hotelcalifornia101 posted:
Healthy 44 male non smoker, exercise regularly and always have, although perhaps sometimes too hard. Cycling, swimming running, etc.

I went in for a Phase 1 clinical study screen at a CRO and the EKG came back as "Delayed Transition" I suppose meaning the later stage of the QRS.

I was considering the possibility of too much Potassium, but the blood work at the clinic that day read 4.4, which is within normal range of 3.5-5.0.

Is this serious and non reversible, or does this happen sometimes in a normal healthy person.

I'm very worried about this and do not have access to a doctor or clinic which can help me fully understand this.

Any guidance would be appreciated.
