104 Possible Causes for Flattened T Wave, Hypokalemia

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Convincing evidence for a pro-arrhythmogenic factor other than hypokalemia is still lacking.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some electrocardiographic (ECG) findings associated with hypokalemia include flattened or inverted T waves, a U wave and ST depression.[flipper.diff.org] BACKGROUND: periodic paralysis related to hypokalemia is seldom reported in thyrotoxicosis, and it usually occurs in Asian males.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Digoxin

    Hypokalemia and hypomagesemia sensitize the myocardium to digoxin Digoxin toxicity can be precipitated by conditions such as hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia or hypothyroidism,[thepoisonreview.com] , inverted, or biphasic T waves .[lifeinthefastlane.com] Hypokalemia potentiates the digoxin effect Hypokalemia always potentiates the pro-arrhythmic effects of digoxin.[ecgwaves.com]

  • Cushing's Disease

    The course of the disease was fatal, the patient died due to severe hypokalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ectopic ACTH secretion was initially suspected on the basis of very high cortisoluria and ACTH concentrations, severe hypokalemia, a lung hypermetabolic lesion and a normal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tw o also demonstrated personality changes, hypertension and hypokalemia, the last of these being rarely reported in patients with Cushing's disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Digitalis

    Electrolytes Hypomagnesemia, hypercalcemia, hypernatremia, hyperkalemia, and hypokalemia can aggravate toxicity. [11] Hypokalemia is usually observed with chronic toxicity[emedicine.com] Potassium supplementation can also reverse the toxic effects of digoxin if the toxicity is related to hypokalemia (see below).[cvpharmacology.com] Risk factors • Decreased tolerance to the drug • Hypokalemia, hypernatremia , hypomagnesemia • Medications that interact with digitalis such as quinidine, verapamil, amiodarone[slideshare.net]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Here, we present a case of a heart donor with severe electrolyte imbalance, specifically severe hypokalemia, and severe hypernatremia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] […] hypomagnesemia t widened hypercalcemia t tall hyperkalemia hypomagnesemia t inverted hypokalemia shallow, flat u prominent hypokalemia[allnurses.com]

  • Digitalis Toxicity

    Dilutional hypokalemia may precipitate digitalis toxicity in the digitalized patient. Successful resuscitation of such a patient is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] With digitalis toxicity, hypokalemia and hyperkalemia are possible.[ecgguru.com]

  • Familial Periodic Paralysis

    Risk of hypokalemia : Hypokalemia increases digitalis toxicity. See: Food high in potassium Other links listed for your convenience: Lab test See Disclaimer[alternativehealing.org] Answer and interpretation The ECG findings include: Sinus rhythm with a rate of 70bpm Normal axis Flattened T waves with the presence of U waves.[lifeinthefastlane.com] The ECG may show sinus bradycardia with evidence of hypokalaemia, including flattening of T waves, U waves in leads II, V2, V3, and V4, and ST segment depression.[patient.info]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    Hypokalemia events were related to malnutrition (odds ratio, 2.79; 95% confidence interval, 1.09-7.14; P .045).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] t-waves, C hvostek’s sign (positive which goes along with hypocalcemia) H ypertension, h yperreflexia I nvoluntary movements N ausea G I issues (decreased bowel sounds and[registerednursern.com] Characteristic ECG changes include progressive QRS complex widening, PR interval prolongation, and flattened T waves.[nursingcenter.com]
