49 Possible Causes for Exertional Dyspnea, Inverted P Wave

  • Cardiomyopathy

    There are some signs of left atrial enlargement — leftward deviation of the P wave axis (positive P waves in I and aVL, inverted in III and aVF) and prolongation of the terminal[] dyspnea , a feeling of pressure in the chest Later stages Progressive left heart failure and right heart failure Relative mitral valve regurgitation Diagnostics Patient history[] dyspnea, angina, syncope, sudden death Systolic murmur mitral regurgitation murmur, S4 Bifid carotid pulse with a brisk upstroke and rapid downstroke Exertional dyspnea and[]

  • Spontaneous Pneumothorax

    An ECG was administered; findings indicated reversal of the arm leads (right axis deviation and inverted P waves in lead I), but there was no actual limb lead reversal present[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    The most typical ECG findings in emphysema are: Rightward shift of the P wave axis with prominent P waves in the inferior leads and flattened or inverted P waves in leads[] The patient developed progressive exertional dyspnea, with clinical and laboratory findings of right-sided heart failure and pulmonary hypertension.[] Nonspecific: fatigue, tachypnea, exertional dyspnea, cough, anginal chest pain, hemoptysis, hoarseness What nonspecific signs may indicate underlying lung disease Increase[]

  • Supraventricular Tachycardia

    Inverted P waves are sometimes seen after the QRS complex. These are called retrograde p waves.[] He reported experiencing 3 days of fatigue, myalgias, palpitations, and dyspnea on exertion, but was otherwise hemodynamically stable.[] waves may be non-identifiable, especially when the ventricular rate is high If P waves are present, they will likely be inverted in leads II, III, and aVf QRS complex duration[]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    New subtype of apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy identified with nuclear magnetic resonance imaging as an underlying cause of markedly inverted T-waves.[] METHODS AND RESULTS: A 10-month female infant who experienced cough, fever, aggressive exertional dyspnea, and recurrent cyanosis was admitted to our hospital.[] Treatment strategies depend on appropriate patient selection, including drug treatment for exertional dyspnea (beta-blockers, verapamil, disopyramide) and the septal myotomy-myectomy[]

  • Atrial Flutter

    Retrograde atrial conduction produces: Inverted flutter waves in leads II,III, aVF Positive flutter waves in V1 – may resemble upright P waves Clockwise Reentry.[] Here is an example of smaller P waves seen in between the QRS complexes: Can you see the P waves? They are upside down (inverted) in this example.[] There are inverted flutter waves in II, III aVF at a rate of 300 bpm (one per big square) There are upright flutter waves in V1 simulating P waves There is a 2:1 AV block[]

  • Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia

    PLN mutation carriers more often had low-voltage electrocardiograms (p 0.004), inverted T waves in leads V4 to V6 (p Copyright 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.[] The signs and symptoms of Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy include: Shortness of breath during physical activity/exertion (exertional dyspnea) Shortness of[] Ventricular tachycardia at presentation (hazard ratio [HR]: 1.86; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.38-2.49; P P P 0.001), inverted T waves in 3 precordial leads (HR: 1.66;[]

  • Pericarditis

    PTa depression (depression between the end of the P-wave and the beginning of the QRS- complex) stage II: pseudonormalisation (transition) stage III: inverted T-waves stage[] After treatment with diuretics, the peripheral edema improved significantly, but the patient still complained of severe dyspnea on exertion during the hospitalization.[] Prolonged elevation of pulmonary venous pressure results in dyspnea (particularly during exertion) and orthopnea. Fatigue may be severe.[]

  • Patent Foramen Ovale

    Adults with an uncorrected ASD will present with symptoms of dyspnea on exertion (shortness of breath with minimal exercise), congestive heart failure, or cerebrovascular[]

  • Ebstein Malformation

    In the absence of an ectopic focus, P waves are upright in aVR and inverted in I and aVL. 95 Ventricular depolarization and repolarization occur in an inverse fashion.[] Adult life: Ebstein anomaly presents with fatigue, exertional dyspnea, cyanosis, tricuspid regurgitation and/or right heart failure, and palpitations; arrhythmias are common[] The right atrium and sinus node are on the patient’s left side and yield a P-wave axis that remains inferiorly oriented but displaced to the right.[]
