Question: 
my nephew is 16 and plays football and basket ball for our School. He went with me the other day and did a voluntary EKG just for personal reasons. He was instantly taken off of both the football and basketball teams and is not allowed to do anything because his EKG included multiple Ventricular Premature complexes   and a wide QRS.If this is something you can explain, would you please?

W/o the real EKG I’d be concerned this may be part of WPW syndrome (see below). Whether true or not, this finding razes a concern of potentially fatal heart rhythms:

Sometimes symptoms include dizziness, palpitations, shortness of breath, and fainting (syncope). Until further investigated it is wise to hold off on strenuous exercise until seen by a specialist.
Hope this helps,
