Nonspecific T Wave Abnormality
31 y/o white female had a EKG done hr 83 the results stated abnormal EKG nonspecific t-wave abnormality. Was taken twice, what does that mean?
Hard to say: Non specific t wave abnormalities can be associated with many different cardiac conditions both benign and more serious. They may also be present when nothing is wrong with the heart. That's why they are " nonspecific, ". ...Read more
Had a ECG which shows a nonspecific T wave abnormality with pulse of 97bpm. I'm on abilify (aripiprazole). What does the result mean? Pic of ECG in my files.
Talk to your doctor: The reason the study says, "nonspecific T-wave abnormality" is because the reader doesn't have enough information supplied to them by the referring provider so as to make a more SPECIFIC comment on what they're seeing...which is some sort of T-wave abnormality. Abnormalities can be due to NORMAL variants and therefore, of no consequence, or meaningful based on the clinical situation. ...Read more
Experiencing IM fluttering in chest. Feels like my heart isn't contracting properly. EGG abnormal nonspecific T wave abnormality, prolonged QT. Worried?
Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global. Is my heart ok?
More info needed: I am assuming echo is showing pericardial effusion and global? Or maybe global hypohypokinesia? Any wall motion abnormalities? Ejection fraction? Do u have any symptoms? At rest or with activities? Any other risk factors? Smoker, overweight, dm, htn, high chol, family history heart attacks, sedentary life etc. Any prior heart attacks? Stress test done. Any recent viral infection? Pericarditis? ...Read more
Ecg read nonspecific st & t wave abnormality myocardial changes P waves showed superior axis normal sinus rhythm w/sinus arrhythmia? What does it mea
26 w/ chest pain. Was tachy, inferior q wave noted, nonspecific st and t wave abnormality noted. Possible lateral infarct. What does this mean?
What could cause transient ST\T wave abnormalities on my EKG...t wave inversion specifically. My EKGs always change some with T inversions.
EKG: P waves are normally upright. T waves in healthy young individuals are usually upright in leads 1, 2, AVL, V4, V5, and V6. Other leads may have inverted T waves and still be normal. These are just guidelines, however as normal variants are common in EKG's, especially in young individuals. ...Read more
T wave: It can mean abnormalities in repolarization in the area of the septum. There is a legion of possible reasons for such T wave inversions. ...Read more
Abnormal ECGS: T wave inversions are an abnormal electrical pattern on an ECG which can indicate a heart problem. Most serious would be an indication of ischemia, or lack of blood flow to a part of the heart muscle. This occurs when there are cholesterol blockages in the coronary arteries. Other less dangerous causes for these changes include high blood pressure, leaky valves and thickened heart muscle. ...Read more
No: It won't.Get a more detailed answer ›
ECG: T wave inversion in leads 2 and 3 doesn't necessarily mean anything significant. It depends on other factors and if the only thing mentioned is t wave inversion likely nothing of concern. ...Read more
What to do if I had an ECG and the letter I got back interestingly evidence of t wave inversion in the septal leads what does this mean?
What do you advise if I had an ECG and the letter I got back "interestingly evidence of t wave inversion in the septal leads" what does this mean?
Can be normal: An ECG has different waveforms that are labeled with letters. They reflect the electric current in your heart muscle. Sometimes the T wave can go in a different direction than expected. It usually points upright like a little hill, but can point downwards. In the septal leads it can be normal. More studies should be done if this is different from other ECGs, or if you have chest pain/ or symptoms ...Read more
ECG: Possible abnormalities can possibly be meaningful or not. The best you can say is possibly serious. More information is needed, ask your Doc about you. ...Read more
I am 42 and last year I was diagnosed with a short systolic heart murmur with a T-wave inversion and never had it before. What causes this?
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! ...Read more
Help me understand this. Stress test says t wave liability at rest t wave inversion during recovery non diagnostic for ischemia. St depression <1mm??
EKG essentially ok: Sounds like they were determining if you had narrowing of your heart arteries and if that was causing a low blood supply to your heart. Ischemia means low blood/oxygen supply to tissue (in this case the heart). When there is a low blood/oxygen supply to heart tissue ischemia can happen and a t-wave inversion can show this on EKG. ST depres can tell if you have had a heart attack, not in your case ...Read more
Hi I 27 years old asian male. Last time I doing ecg test there are t wave inversion at lead III and Avf and slightly inverted (<1 mm) in lead II. Cou?
ECG: I would have it rechecked. Had you just eaten a big meal? ...Read more
I am 19 years old, I am physically fit which I do karate 3 hours a week and running everyday. ECG t wave inversion but normal echocardiogram?
Probably fine but...: The fact that you are so physically active with no problems is great! You are doing an informal exercise stress test 5 times a week. The safest thing to do is to get a formal exercise stress test. Once you pass that, relax! ...Read more
I have had a recent EKG change t wave inversion >1yr since last normal ekg. Cp intermittent but labs, calcium scan, stress echo normal. Should I worry?
ECG: Twaves are very nonspecific, talk to your doc for perspective. ...Read more
Having sob, trouble taking deep breath in, sometimes when active heart is racing, EKG came back with new t-wave inversion in anterior leads, why?
Had an EKG done. T wave inversion in lead V1, V2 and V3. Mild mitral regurgitation. And they thought perhaps right ventricular hypertrophy. Normal?
ECG: That pattern can be persistent Juvenile T wave pattern which is benign. On the other hand without seeing the ecg obvioiusly can't really say what it is. ...Read more
Had abnormal EKG. T wave inversion in lead V1, V2 and V3. Mild mitral regurgitation. And they think right ventricular hypertrophy. Is this normal?
You answered that: You correctly described your ECG as abnormal, so, no it's not normal. The ecg changes you described don't necessarily mean RVH. And mild MR doesn't cause RVH so I wonder if you're a bit confused. If you had an echo and it didn't show RVH then you're done. Ask your provider to explain the findings. ...Read more
Can anxiety cause slight T wave inversion? I ve had around 30 ECG during the last 6 months (everytime it was because I went to the ER after having a panic attack and feeling of irregular heartbeat). 28 times I ve had normal ECG but 2 times I ve had what
Unlikely: T waves are usually inverted in aVR and often leads III, aVL, aVF & V1, An inverted t wave in any single lead is considered a "normal variant." Anxiety doesn't cause T wave inversion but, in your case, it is causing multiple ER visits & EKG's and probably more anxiety. You sound miserable but what you need is appropriate & aggressive treatment for your anxiety, not more EKG's. ...Read more
What to do if I have slight resting chest pain. Ecg shows t wave inversion in 2.3 avf. Ett is positive. Echo normal, ct angio?
Data: With the data you present, you should be seeing a cardiologist. The doctor will choose the appropriate further steps for you given your specifics and the availabilities of testing locally. ...Read more
What to do if I have slight resting chest pain. Ecg shows t wave inversion in 2.3 avf. Ett is positive. Echo normal, CT angio?
Need more info: ETT can give false positive results. Did you have chest discomfort during the test? Do you only have rest pain? ETT can be combined with imaging studies like a stress Echo, this would give more information. Typical chest pain from heart disease gets worse with activity, and gets better with rest. ...Read more
EKG: EKG is a test that may show minute variability that based on operator technique and interpretation. A non specific T wave abnormality is usually no cause for worry. ...Read more
Could u explain to me what exactly non specific t wave abnormality means I don't understand what t wave is?
T waves: See the added diagram. The large wave on the EKG is called the QRS complex. It appears when the ventricles contract and the T wave after it is a repolarization wave that occurs when the ventricles relax. Non specific T wave abnormalities may mean that the T waves are flattened or inverted. This is not specific for any abnormality. There are many causes for this. ...Read more
NSTW abnormality: Hi, it means not classic or specific for conditions like ischemia, infarction, or pericarditis, therefore the Clinician needs to consider other things like the type of chest pain, medical history & risk factors for heart disease & family history to determine if the T wave changes are significant or not, I would assume in a 24 yo guy with no risk factor for heart disease, NSTW change is harmless. ...Read more
I have t wave abnormality in anteolateral leads also came positive in tmt test. But I completed the test without symptoms. Any problem with heart?
Unsure: Cannot say yes or no. Would need further evaluation. ...Read more
Can pointed P waves just show that the impulse is originating somewhere other than the SAN rather than an atrial abnormality?
No: You're confusing inverted P waves with "pointed" p waves. ...Read more
ECG: Those terms describe the tracing. They don't necessarily imply any anatomical or fuctional abnormality. ...Read more
Understanding based: On both heart anatomy & how the electrical stimulation spreads from cell-to-cell with the atria, then within the ventricles. Both terms relate to both heart anatomy & electrical activity within the ventricles, both dominant depolarization biased more to left side (left axis deviation) & altered repolarization (T waves); many possible reasons.

I have just done a ecg and it came back with a left axis deviation and t wave abnormality. What does that mean?
Left axis deviation:
What that means is the doctor who was "caring" for you has not been very pleasant or helpful.
Two things to do:
1: Please have your doctor explain all of the information to you. There is absolutely no reason why that did not happen already.
2: You can go online and look for several patient centered articles that will be helpful. ...Read more
