  • 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] flatten; stage 3: symmetric T wave inversion throughout ECG; and stage 4: ECG normalization 2 .[jetem.org] (1 to 3 weeks) Stage 3 – flattened T waves become inverted (3 to several weeks) Stage 4 – ECG returns to normal (several weeks onwards) NB.[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Lithium Toxicity

    Cardiovascular side effects are usually mild and manifest as nonspecific ECG changes, such as ST-T flattening and T-wave inversion.[calpoison.org] The most common electrocardiographic finding is T-wave flattening.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • 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]

  • Angina Pectoris

    OBJECTIVE: Although frequently utilized, an exercise electrocardiogram (ECG) provides limited diagnostic accuracy in patients with atypical angina pectoris. The purpose of this study was to determine the possible incremental value of pretest probability (PTP) scores and exercise parameters in discriminating coronary[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
