Abnormality Of The T Wave

Decent Essays
Many people don’t know or understand what a “T wave” is; I will start off my giving you the definition and then going into further detail. Definition 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. Site: https://www.google.com/search?q=what+is+a+T+wave The T wave is the most positive deflection that is done after each one of the QRS complexes; it also helps represent the ventricular repolarization. There are many different types of test that can be done when performing the T wave test that comes with a lot of information, such as the Characteristics of a normal T wave, T wave abnormalities, Peaked T waves, and Hyperacute T waves, Loss of precordial T-wave balance, Inverted T waves, and Pediatrics T waves and so on which I will narrow each of them down for you. Let’s get started.…show more content…
The duration of the amplitude is < 15mm in a precordial leads, as well as the duration. T wave abnormalities There are just a few bullets for T wave abnormalities which I will share but won’t go into detail. • Hyperacute T waves • Inverted T
