Abnormal T Wave in EKG?

Answer

T waves are found in electrocardiography, also known as an EKG, and represent the recovery of the ventricles. Within one T wave in an electrocardiograph, you have the beginning, QRS complex to the end, and an absolute refractory period. Just because there is an abnormality in a T wave does not always mean there is an issue. This only means that there needs to be more testing done to determine if other issues are present. A strain on the heart, an abnormal rate, or a hemorrhage can cause an abnormal T wave.
