143 Possible Causes for Flattened T Wave, Ventricular Tachycardia

  • Hypokalemia

    […] than the T wave. flattening of the T wave.[] A 38-year-old obese woman presented with recurrent polymorphic ventricular tachycardia secondary to persistent hypokalemia necessitating more than 40 DC shocks.[] Clinically, the acute symptoms may resemble a herniated vertebral disc, but hypokalemia per se is life-threatening by causing heart arrest through ventricular tachycardia[]

  • 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[] , junctional tachycardia, and bidirectional ventricular tachycardia are common.[] ., sinus bradycardia, atrioventricular block, nonparoxysmal atrioventricular junctional tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia.[]

  • Quinidine

    T waves (without dysrhythmia), have occurred frequently and hypotension and ventricular tachycardia have occurred occasionally in patients receiving IV quinidine gluconate[] tachycardia, triggered by each first paced beat following the longer escape interval.[] RESULTS: We report the case of a patient with vasospastic angina and J-wave pattern in inferior and lateral leads associated with polymorphic ventricular tachycardia which[]

  • Digoxin

    , inverted, or biphasic T waves .[] (AV) Block ECG (Example 2) Bidirectional Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) ECG Example Cardiac arrest and death can occur from ventricular fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia[] . - Flattened, negative or biphasic T waves. - QT interval shortening. - U wave amplitude may increase.[]

  • 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[] Ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation and torsade de pointes.[] (CNS depression) ventricular irritability (Potassium has a profound impact on heart rhythms, this is how anorexics die, with this imbalance, any time there is GI losses, Potassium[]

  • Digitalis

    In addition, burst ventricular pacing, performed while this atrial tachyarrhythmia was present, initiated and subsequently terminated a ventricular tachycardia with similar[] […] contraction - sinus bradycardia - variable degrees of heart block - atrial fibrillations - ventricular tachycardia - cardiac arrest on systole 14.[] […] contractions Ventricular flutter and fibrillation Atrial flutter and fibrillation Bidirectional ventricular tachycardia Bidirectional ventricular tachycardia is particularly[]

  • Phenothiazine

    Phenothiazine-induced ventricular tachycardia, when it occurs in the overdose situation, may be refractory to conventional antiarrhythmic drugs.[] Abstract The chronic use of phenothiazine is known to result in ventricular arrhythmias in certain patients.[]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    tachycardia.[] Abstract A patient with mitral valve prolapse and symptomatic ventricular ectopy underwent an electrophysiological study during which a sustained monomorphic ventricular tachycardia[] Abstract Ventricular tachycardia occurs frequently in patients with mitral valve prolapse.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy due to Anthracyclines

    Sinus tachycardia is frequent in this instance, but palpitations may be also caused by supraventricular, junctional or ventricular tachycardia.[] tachycardia.[] Other cases of left ventricular dysfunction, such as coronary artery disease must also be taken into consideration and properly analyzed.[]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Some electrocardiographic (ECG) findings associated with hypokalemia include flattened or inverted T waves, a U wave and ST depression.[] Abstract An unusual case of triiodothyronine toxicosis and hypokalemic periodic paralysis presenting with ventricular tachycardia in a young Chinese man is presented.[] , including polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, bidirectional ventricular tachycardia, and ventricular bigeminy.[]
