What is a t wave abnormality on an ecg?

Ecg: T waves represent the repolarization of the ventricles. The morphology of the wave is fairly uniform so when its vector is in the wrong direction we consider the t wave abnormal. ...Read more

Could u explain to me what exactly non specific t wave abnormality means I don't understand what t wave is?

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

What causes anterior t wave abnormality non specific plz reply massive panic attack?

What causes anterior t wave abnormality non specific plz reply massive panic attack?

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 just had a ecg and it said left axis deviation and a t wave abnormality. What does this mean?

I just had a ecg and it said left axis deviation and a t wave abnormality. What does this mean?

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

What does an EKG 12-lead impression: non-specific st t wave abnormality mean? I I just need to know what this test result means.

What does an EKG 12-lead impression: non-specific st t wave abnormality mean? I I just need to know what this test result means.

A: A "nonspecific" abnormality means that the wave doesn't look like the typical, standard ekg. The st-t wave is the wave that occurs right after the qrs. Often times the wave doesn't look typical, but it is important to note if prior ekg's have appeared the same for the patient. Also, some medications can cause these changes. ...Read more

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

Abnormal ECG yesterday mon specific t wave repeat today rsr probable normal variant anterior t wave abnormality non specific please help I'm scared?

Nothing serious: The findings you describe in your ECG are both nonspecific. Such findings do not mean that there is anything wrong with your heart. "Nonspecific T wave changes" are frequently seen in normal people, and often disappear. They are sometimes due to electrolyte changes or other transient causes which do not amount to heart disease. Please do not worry. ...Read more

Sorry 4 so many questions I'm scared to sleep due to sudden change in ECG from normal to non specific t wave abnormality in a few hours exstreme aniexty Google says sign of serious problem?

Not a problem: The T wave is the most labile wave in the ECG. T wave changes including low-amplitude T waves and abnormally inverted T waves may be the result of many cardiac and non-cardiac conditions. The normal T wave is usually in the same direction as the QRS except in the right precordial leads (see V2 below). See link for details but try not to get confused with medical jargon. Consult your MD for sp qs. ...Read more

I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?

I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?

Cardiologist: These T wave abnormalities are nonspecific and it's important to compare them to any prior EKG if one is available. If none are available the findings may not necessarily be due to any cardiac pathology and may even be a normal variant in a young woman. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and examine you and recommend further testing like an echocardiogram if deemed advisable. ...Read more

My resting ECG report shows t wave abnormality, consider anterior ischemia and incomplete rbbb. Should I be concerned? I see a cardio in 2 weeks.

My resting ECG report shows t wave abnormality, consider anterior ischemia and incomplete rbbb. Should I be concerned? I see a cardio in 2 weeks.

ECG abnormality: T wave abnormalities are usually non-specific, especially if you are an otherwise healthy young woman. The computer read-out should always be confirmed and checked by the physician, so you will have more specific info after you get the opinion of the cardiologist. Of course, if you have cardiac symptoms like chest pain with exertion then a more urgent eval is a good idea. ...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

Hi. I did ECG and results : ST and T wave abnormality, consider inferolateral ischemia, doctor said everything is ok... 27 years old, 60 kg.

Depends: In many cases the EKG machine gives an automated reading. It's not as effective as having a good pair of eyes reading the EKG. I'd go with your docs's advice. ...Read more

Need prior EKGs: There's no way to answer your question (presuming there is one) without knowledge of prior EKGs or your medical history. Use HealthTap Prime to upload & discuss, or discuss with your Cardiologist. In general, CABG operations mean that your EKG can change, as the heart shifts in position after the surgery. What the EKG portends requires analysis & testing. Abnormal T wave can be from ischemia. ...Read more

Automated ECG: The automated ECG interpretation that appears on a 12 lead ECG printout must always be viewed with a grain (or two) of salt. The best person to evaluate your ECG is your doctor. Period. The machine is famous for misinterpretation. Go see your doctor. Have a history and physical done. Then have him/her look at your ECG. ...Read more

Sinus tachycardia~t wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia~abnormal ecg~when compared with ECG of 10-aug-2013 11:38, ~questionable change in qrs?

Non-specific: You need a stress test. It appears that you've had one. If it's been >1 year, it should be repeated now and done with an imaging modality such as echo or nuclear perfusion imaging. A resting ekg is a notoriously inaccurate test, especially in middle-aged women. (that's not sexism, it's science). There are many (most) false positives. ...Read more

How concerned should I be with an aortic valve area of 1.09 and mild left ventricular hypertrophy, left axis deviation and t wave abnormality?

How concerned should I be with an aortic valve area of 1.09 and mild left ventricular hypertrophy, left axis deviation and t wave abnormality?

Sounds like: You have moderate to severe aortic valve stenosis. You need to see a cardiologist who can determine other parameters of severity, such as pressure gradient across the valve and velocity of blood flow through the valve. If you have symptoms of fainting or congestive heart failure, it is more serious. Sometimes, the valve can be replaced without chest surgery. ...Read more
