ECG: Slight changes in ECG are usually of slight importance. The ECG tracing can be changed by very subtle changes in anatomy and physiology and don't always have significant import.

Not satisfying: I know my answer won't be satisfying to you, but "non-specific st-t wave changes" mean exactly what they sound like. The ekg has changes that are abnormal but are non-specific, ie they don't diagnose anything. For example, sometimes you don't feel good. You can't describe what's wrong - something is wrong but the problem is "non-specific". You just don't feel normal.

No: No. There are multiple reasons why an EKG shows 'changes'. In fact, EKG is a measure of the electrical activity of the heart, and for this reason anything that influence this can cause ekg changes (electrolytes abnormalities, temperature, microvascular problem, disease of conduction sytem, etc..., as well as poor blood supply to the heart, such in the case of MI)
