Coronary disease: In the right context, T wave inversions on EKG are caused by a mismatch in the supply and demand of oxygen to the heart, which is caused by underlying coronary heart disease, but can be worsened by sepsis. A Left bundle branch block can also be caused by coronary disease with injury to the left bundle due to lack of oxygen. This can happen after an acute heart attack (MI). Hope that helps!

Intensivists: Really, it depends on your hospital and location, but in general critical care boarded physicians treat sepsis; if the infection is rare or strange, they may consult with an infectious disease physician. If the sepsis is not severe, a general internist may direct your care.
