174 Possible Causes for Cardiac Arrhythmia, Flattened T Wave

  • Hypokalemia

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Electrocardiographic signs of digitalis toxicity include first-degree atrioventricular (A-V) block with depressed S-T segments, shortened Q-T intervals, and flattened T waves[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] The data from these experiments suggest that the intense arousal associated with a signal that had previously been paired with shock is sufficient to precipitate cardiac arrhythmias[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] arrhythmia and enable practitioners to prescribe preventative treatments with medications such as blood pressure reducers, aspirin, and cholesterol-lowering drugs, as well[books.google.com]

  • Digoxin

    , inverted, or biphasic T waves .[lifeinthefastlane.com] It is dangerous because it has been shown to contain several types of cardiac glycosides, and hence can cause cardiac arrhythmias resembling digoxin in their toxicologic manifestations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe cardiac arrhythmias, haemodynamic instability and a rapid-increasing serum potassium level resulted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Quinidine

    T waves (without dysrhythmia), have occurred frequently and hypotension and ventricular tachycardia have occurred occasionally in patients receiving IV quinidine gluconate[drugs.com] METHODS AND RESULTS: A 2-year retrospective review was conducted in adult patients receiving a CIQI for cardiac arrhythmias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Melanin pigmentation of the hard palate is described in two patients receiving long-term quinidine therapy for cardiac arrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    Stages 2, 3, and 4 ECG findings consist of ST-segment normalization and T wave flattening, T wave inversion, and normalization of T waves, respectively.[cfp.ca] Further reading on the web- Tags: acute pericarditis, arrhythmia, cardiology cardiac interesting ecg ekg electrocardiogram image archive, ECG, ECG images archive, ECG in pericarditis[heartpearls.com] flatten; stage 3: symmetric T wave inversion throughout ECG; and stage 4: ECG normalization 2 .[jetem.org]

  • Digitalis

    Abstract Six cases of digitalis intoxication presenting with cardiac arrhythmias are described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVE: To report a case of cardiac arrhythmia related to a low dose of endovenous lanatoside C.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] arrhythmias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Phenothiazine

    Abstract A patient with schizophrenia developed torsade de pointes, a life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia, due to administration of phenothiazines.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Arrhythmia Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy, Diabetic Cardiomyopathy Caries, Prevention Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Cataracts (Prevention) Cataracts, Diabetic Cavities, Prevention[therapy.epnet.com] The occurrence of cardiac abnormalities following acute phenothiazine overdose is less well documented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiomyopathy due to Anthracyclines

    Late-onset arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death can occur even 15 years after anthracycline administration has been ceased.[symptoma.com]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Clinical signs of hyperkalaemia include muscle weakness, hypotension , bradycardia and loss of cardiac output, and ECG changes may include peaked T waves and flattened P waves[ausmed.com] Abstract Arrhythmias and cardiac arrest have been reported during amphotericin B administration but no effective technique has been described to prevent them.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Following a well-balanced diet can also help prevent cardiac arrhythmias.[healthyeating.sfgate.com]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Some electrocardiographic (ECG) findings associated with hypokalemia include flattened or inverted T waves, a U wave and ST depression.[flipper.diff.org] This systematic review shows that cardiac arrhythmias were reported in 27 HypoPP patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although most attacks resolve spontaneously and leave no residual weakness, cardiac arrhythmias can be life-threatening. 4-6 Recovery can be hastened by the administration[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
