157 Possible Causes for Flattened T Wave, Sudden Death

  • Hypokalemia

    […] than the T wave. flattening of the T wave.[healio.com] Potassium levels above 6,0 mmol/l cause peaked T waves, wider QRS komplexes and may result in bradycardia, asystole and sudden death.[escardio.org] T wave of the electrocardiogram, and muscle weakness.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.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] Symptoms of Digoxin Toxicity overdoses could include: Nausea Vomiting Dizziness Weakness Confusion Vision Changes Low Blood Pressure Cardiac Instability Bradycardia Sudden[youhavealawyer.com] Death The primary Digitalis Toxicity treatment is Digoxin Immune Fab (Ovine), made from immunoglobin fragments from sheep who have already been immunized with a digoxin derivative[youhavealawyer.com]

  • Quinidine

    T waves (without dysrhythmia), have occurred frequently and hypotension and ventricular tachycardia have occurred occasionally in patients receiving IV quinidine gluconate[drugs.com] Due to numerous proofs of increased risk for the appearance of ventricular arrhythmia and sudden death, as well as a number of other adverse effects and drug interactions,[doi.org] Recent studies have demonstrated the clinical efficacy of quinidine in the treatment of rare genetically determined ion-channel diseases at high risk of sudden death, such[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Digoxin

    , inverted, or biphasic T waves .[lifeinthefastlane.com] OBJECTIVE: The aim was to determine whether, in older patients receiving digoxin, macrolide antibiotics are associated with sudden death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] . - Flattened, negative or biphasic T waves. - QT interval shortening. - U wave amplitude may increase.[metealpaslan.com]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    As a consequence, sudden death might occur in these patients, thought to be caused by an arrhythmogenic event.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] death, let alone a cause of sudden death.[verywell.com] However, a true association with MVP and sudden death has remained controversial.[ahcmedia.com]

  • Angina Pectoris

    Anomalies of the coronary arteries were found to be the cause of sudden death in a young individual.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pharmacologic agents are effective in managing symptoms, but are not disease modifying, ie, they do not alter the risk for heart attack or sudden death. 5 Lifestyle changes[pharmacytimes.com] Continuing to smoke increased the rate of sudden death to a greater degree in those with less severe initial attacks, while the effect of smoking on fatal reinfarctions was[doi.org]

  • Phenothiazine

    Abstract There have been periodic case reports of sudden death due to aspiration or asphyxiation in patients receiving phenothiazines. The mechanism of death is unknown.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most serious consequences of treatment, arrhythmias and sudden death, are probably rare and most likely to be caused primarily by blockade of cardiac potassium channels[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Long QT Syndrome

    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] KEYWORDS: Long QT syndrome; Neurofibromatosis; Pheochromocytoma; Sudden intrauterine death; Sudden maternal death in pregnancy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , the T wave is flattened or when notching of the T wave occurs.[doi.org]

  • Brugada Syndrome

    , the T wave is flattened or when notching of the T wave occurs.[doi.org] Antiarrhythmic drugs like amiodarone and beta-blockers do not prevent sudden death in symptomatic or asymptomatic individuals.[doi.org] This is known as sudden arrhythmic death syndrome, or SADS.[medium.com]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    […] in lead V1 0.5 mV in amplitude and R:S ratio 1 ST-segment depression or T-wave flattening or inversion in 2 leads Prolongation of heart rate corrected QT interval 0.44 s[doi.org] Measured risk factors for sudden death included family history of sudden death, massive left ventricular hypertrophy, nonsustained ventricular tachycardia on Holter monitoring[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, sudden death research in Dr.[mayo.edu]
