132 Possible Causes for Flattened T Wave, Ventricular Fibrillation

  • Hypokalemia

    […] than the T wave. flattening of the T wave.[healio.com] OBJECTIVE: To report a case of ventricular fibrillation caused by severe hypokalemia probably associated with sertraline use.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] T wave of the electrocardiogram, and muscle weakness.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.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] […] of ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation.[doi.org] Its value in chronic prophylaxis of relapse of ventricular arrhythmia was brought under suspicion after publishing of meta analysis that showed that the application of quinidine[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Digoxin

    , inverted, or biphasic T waves .[lifeinthefastlane.com] The indications for Fab administration include the following: Life-threatening arrhythmia including ventricular arrhythmias (ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation[healio.com] . - Flattened, negative or biphasic T waves. - QT interval shortening. - U wave amplitude may increase.[metealpaslan.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] This is because digitalis poisoning is associated with cardiac disturbances: ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, SA block and AV block.[biology.stackexchange.com] On the contrary, a slow ventricular rate in atrial fibrillation could be a manifestation of digitoxicity.[cardiophile.org]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    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] Here, a young woman with prior episodes of auditory stimulus-induced syncope presented with LQTS and ventricular fibrillation (VF) with hypomagnesaemia and hypocalcaemia after[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ventricular fibrillation. 3.[ecgwaves.com]

  • Digitalis

    Abstract A 58 years healthy old woman was admitted to the Emergency Department (ED) with cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation (VF).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Advanced cardiac rhythm disturbances are common, along with tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation.[web.archive.org] Digitalis was only used in slowing down the ventricular rate during atrial fibrillation; 7 patients (35%) had a high serum digoxin concentration, of which 4 had renal failure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Phenothiazine

    Rooted in the early days of organic dye chemistry, the phenothiazine structure and its derivatives have since held a prominent place in pharmacology and biomedicine. Initially used for histochemical stains of plasmodia by Paul Ehrlich, anthelmintic and antibiotic properties of phenothiazines were globally exploited in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    CONCLUSIONS: Bileaflet MVP syndrome is characterized by fascicular and papillary muscle VE that triggers ventricular fibrillation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This case presents a patient who was admitted after cardiac resuscitation due to ventricular fibrillation. A severe mitral valve prolapse was the only pathology found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The lethal arrhythmia initiated with late diastolic couplets followed by a ventricular tachycardia that eventually degenerated into ventricular fibrillation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperkalemia

    P wave flattening, may disappear increased amplitude and width PR interval prolonged prolonged QRS interval prolonged ST segment slight depression T wave increased amplitude[rccc.eu] We defined adverse events as symptomatic bradycardia, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and/or death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ventricular fibrillation The end game for untreated hyperkalemia is chaotic depolarisation of ventricular myocardium: ventricular fibrillation.[acadoodle.com]

  • 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] After 3 months, right ventricular rapid pacing induced ventricular fibrillation, and intravenous sodium channel blocker induced a coved type ST-segment elevation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] flatten; stage 3: symmetric T wave inversion throughout ECG; and stage 4: ECG normalization 2 .[jetem.org]
