25 Possible Causes for P Wave Absent, Peaking T Wave

  • Hyperkalemia

    Role of inducing K loss via the GI tract in the management of hyperkalemia Setting Recommendations Hyperkalemia with severe ECG changes (e.g. absent P waves, wide QRS complex[doi.org] […] complex, sinoventricular conduction, bradyarrhythmia and tall peaked T waves.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Example of bradycardia with absent or flattened p waves in hyperkalemia.

Monitoring urine output during administration C.[proprofs.com] We report a case of hyperkalemia, with concurrent hypocalcemia and hypomagnesemia resulting in (1) peaking of the T wave, (2) a prominent U wave, and (3) prolongation of the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] t waves, tremors twitching (CNS stimulation) Hypokalemia: (too much lasix) tachycardia, hypotension, flacid muscles, flat t waves, u waves.[allnurses.com]

  • Left Bundle Branch Block

    The presence of a mid-QRS notching in more than two consecutive leads was a good predictor for the presence of SF (P 0.01), and when combined with an absent R-wave in lead[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The T-wave peak to T-wave end (TpTe) interval has been noted to prolong during myocardial ischemia and correct after reperfusion in patients with normal conduction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 12-lead ECG in the ER showed sinus tachycardia at 118 beats/min, wide QRS complexes, peaked T waves and left bundle branch block-like pattern.[cardiologyres.org]

  • Sinus Bradycardia

    In third-degree, or complete, SA block, the surface ECG is identical to that of sinus arrest, with absent P waves.[emedicine.medscape.com] Sinus bradycardia and subtly peaked T-waves in a patient with mild hyperkalemia and a K of 5.8 mEq/L. Figure 13.[ems12lead.com] In 3rd-degree SA block, conduction is blocked; P waves are absent, giving the appearance of sinus arrest.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Hypoaldosteronism

    An electrocardiogram is obtained in all patients with hyperkalemia and may show the classical features of a tall peaked T wave, absent P wave with wide QRS complexes and ventricular[symptoma.com] His electrocardiogram had tall peak T waves and broad complex QRS pattern.
