34 Possible Causes for Flattened T Wave, Short QT Interval

  • Digoxin

    , inverted, or biphasic T waves .[lifeinthefastlane.com] . - Flattened, negative or biphasic T waves. - QT interval shortening. - U wave amplitude may increase.[metealpaslan.com] The short QT interval, the “sagging” appearance in the inferior leads and the lack of voltage criteria for LVH indicates that this is digoxin effect rather than LVH.[lifeinthefastlane.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]

  • Digitalis

    Abstract A 19-year-old female was admitted to our department because of a hypertrophic palmaris digitalis II of the left hand displaying color changes. A thrill was easily palpated over the medial part of the finger. A review of her history revealed that this hypertrophy occurred after a blunt trauma to the left[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypercalcemia

    At very high serum calcium levels ECG changes include slight prolongation of the PR and QRS intervals, T wave flattening or inversion, and the appearance of a J wave at the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The ECG shows: Bizarre-looking QRS complexes Very short QT interval J waves notching of the terminal QRS, best seen in lead V1 Many thanks to Dr James Hayes, FACEM, for this[web.archive.org] QT interval [16] suggest hypercalcaemia.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Quinidine

    T waves (without dysrhythmia), have occurred frequently and hypotension and ventricular tachycardia have occurred occasionally in patients receiving IV quinidine gluconate[drugs.com] Quinidine is also the only antiarrhythmic drug that normalized the QT interval in patients with the congenital short QT syndrome.[doi.org] AIMS: Short QT syndrome (SQTS) is an inherited disorder associated with abnormally abbreviated QT intervals and an increased incidence of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias[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] Bundle branch block with short PR interval in healthy young people prone to paroxysmal tachycardia.[books.google.com] flatten; stage 3: symmetric T wave inversion throughout ECG; and stage 4: ECG normalization 2 .[jetem.org]

  • 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] […] relatively short PR intervals). 3–5 Increased QRS voltage also has been reported in association with THPP, but it is a relatively nondiagnostic finding in young adult men[circ.ahajournals.org] interval.[medicinenet.com]

  • Angina Pectoris

    […] prolongation or a history of torsade de pointes and in those taking medications known to prolong the QT interval (eg, class IA or III antiarrhythmic agents).[doi.org] Organic nitrates (both short-acting forms such as sublingual nitroglycerin and long-acting forms such as isosorbide mononitrate) are nitric oxide donors and remain an absolute[doi.org] Vardenafil (but not sildenafil or tadalafil) carries a precautionary statement about prolongation of the corrected QT interval and should be avoided in patients with congenital QT[doi.org]

  • Long QT Syndrome 8

    The other reasons are compounding factors such as heart rate, presence of U-waves, and flattened T-waves. 5 Drug-induced torsades de pointes is a significant cause of morbidity[radcliffecardiology.com] […] of CSQTS is an abnormally short QT interval.[crediblemeds.org] […] fibrillation QT, ST and T-wave changes in SQTS Short QT interval, peaked T waves and short ST segments in two patients with SQTS 1.[lifeinthefastlane.com]
