92 Possible Causes for Inverted P Wave, Palpitations

  • Supraventricular Tachycardia

    Inverted P waves are sometimes seen after the QRS complex. These are called retrograde p waves.[acls-algorithms.com] […] of SVT can be nonspecific and varies based upon age with infants demonstrating fussiness or irritability and older children reporting vague perceptions of tachycardia or palpitations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A distinguishing characteristic of orthodromic AVRT can therefore be an inverted P-wave (relative to a sinus P wave) that follows each of its regular, narrow QRS complexes[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    There are some signs of left atrial enlargement — leftward deviation of the P wave axis (positive P waves in I and aVL, inverted in III and aVF) and prolongation of the terminal[lifeinthefastlane.com] Symptoms include palpitations and fainting after physical activity.[heart.org] At a clinic visit 5 months later, she had received no ICD shocks and reported no symptoms of severe palpitations.[nejm.org]

  • Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia

    Most patients present with palpitations and dizziness, and their electrocardiogram demonstrates a narrow QRS complex and regular tachycardia with hidden or inverted P waves[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 64-year-old man was incapacitated by frequent attacks of palpitation following swallowing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] P waves in leads II, III, aVF, V 3 -V 6 Rare: References: [1] [3] [4] Pathophysiology AVRT Do not confuse atrioventricular reentrant (or reciprocating) tachycardia ( AVRT[amboss.com]

  • Atrial Arrhythmia

    After 3 minutes, the palpitations stopped, the heart rate changed to a sinus rhythm, and the ventricular rate was 100 beats/min.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms during arrhythmia were palpitations while exerting (88%), reduced physical ability (87%), palpitations at rest (86%), shortage of breath during exertion (70%) and[bmccardiovascdisord.biomedcentral.com] Symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation Palpitations Chest Pain Decreased blood pressure Weakness Lightheadedness Shortness of breath Only a few years ago, people suffering from this[emoryhealthcare.org]

  • Premature Atrial Contractions

    wave is abnormal Premature (earlier than expected) Morphology different than normal P wave Inverted P wave suggests atrial source near AV junction Nearly normal P waves suggest[fprmed.com] , can cause palpitations.[aafp.org] PACS arising close to the AV node (“low atrial” ectopics) activate the atria retrogradely, producing an inverted P wave with a relatively short PR interval 120 ms (PR interval[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Atrial Tachyarrhythmia with Short PR Interval

    Diagnostic criteria include PR interval of no more than 120 ms, normal QRS complex duration, a normal or inverted P wave, and paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT[patient.co.uk] Less commonly perceived as palpitations).[patient.info] She was euthyroid; ECG revealed regular rhythm with inverted P waves, short PR interval, absent delta waves with normal QRS morphology ( Figure 1 ).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atrial Bigeminy

  • Atrioventricular Junctional Rhythm

  • Atrial Flutter

    All patients had documented type I AFL, defined electrocardiographically as inverted P waves inscribing saw-tooth pattern in inferior leads (lead II, III, aVF), and upright[kjim.org] A 46-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for near syncope and palpitations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Retrograde atrial conduction produces: Inverted flutter waves in leads II,III, aVF Positive flutter waves in V1 – may resemble upright P waves Clockwise Reentry.[litfl.com]

  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

    Therefore, a circuit is established, being seen as a tachycardia, with normal QRS but with inverted P waves (because of retrograde atrial activation).[web.archive.org] She reported a 90-pound unintentional weight loss, increased appetite, irritability, night sweats and palpitations for 2 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He had not experienced palpitations, but a normal electrocardiogram was a prerequisite for enrollment in a professional soccer school.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
