106 Possible Causes for Low-Voltage Electrocardiogram

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Abstract Recent reports have emphasized the occurrence of a myopathy in chronic alcoholism associated with hypokalemia. This report of hypokalemic myopathy in a chronic alcoholic, emphasizes the primary myopathic nature of the condition and attributes it to a possible non-specific effect of the hypokalemia on[…][]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Intern Med. 2017;56(13):1701-1704. doi: 10.2169/internalmedicine.56.7577. Epub 2017 Jul 1. Author information 1 Department of Respiratory Medicine, Hamamatsu Rosai Hospital, Japan. 2 Second Department of Internal Medicine, Hamamatsu University School of Medicine, Japan. 3 Department of Diagnostic Pathology, Hamamatsu[…][]

  • Angina Pectoris

    OBJECTIVE: Although frequently utilized, an exercise electrocardiogram (ECG) provides limited diagnostic accuracy in patients with atypical angina pectoris. The purpose of this study was to determine the possible incremental value of pretest probability (PTP) scores and exercise parameters in discriminating coronary[…][]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a condition in which the heart muscle becomes thick. Often, only one part of the heart is thicker than the other parts. The thickening can make it harder for blood to leave the heart, forcing the heart to work harder to pump blood. It also can make it harder for the heart[…][]

  • Coronary Artery Disease

    OBJECTIVE: Although severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an important risk factor for atherosclerosis-related diseases including coronary artery disease (CAD), there is no reliable biomarker of CAD risks in patients with OSA. This study aimed to test our hypothesis that circulating autoantibodies against[…][]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Modern management of acute myocardial infarction is built on a clinical evidence base drawn from many studies undertaken over the past three decades. The evolution in clinical practice has substantially reduced mortality and morbidity associated with the condition. Key to this success is the effective integration of[…][]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    BMJ Case Rep. 2016 Mar 17;2016. pii: bcr2015214038. doi: 10.1136/bcr-2015-214038. Abstract An individual experiencing dyspnoea or syncope at high altitude is commonly diagnosed to have high-altitude pulmonary edema or cerebral edema. Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is generally not considered in the differential[…][]

  • Addison's Disease

    An electrocardiogram showed sinus tachycardia, low voltage, negative T-waves in V 5 and V 6 and a corrected QT interval of 590 ms.[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Initial workup will include an electrocardiogram which may show: Low voltage Electric alterans A chest X-ray may show an enlarged globular heart.[]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Arrhythmias were associated with low voltages on the electrocardiogram (14 of 34, 41% vs 6 of 47, 13%; odds ratio [OR] 4.78, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.60 to 14.31) and[] Radiography of the chest generally shows cardiomegally and the electrocardiogram may show arrhythmias, heart block, low voltage and T wave abnormalities.[]
