Non specific St and T wave abnormalities


Has anyone ever had non specific ST and T wave abnormalities caught on a 12 lead EKG? If so what was the diagnosis? I just recently had an ecg that shows this and was sinus tach at 120.


I had to wear a Holter Monitor for 7 days and keep a diary. My Cardiology nurse practice also wants me to have a stress test and an echo. 

My last echo was less than 1.5 years ago and was normal. The only thing it showed was trace to mild tricuspid valve regurgitation. 

I also get ectopics and I’m wondering for those of you who do, if there are some ectopics you feel and others you don’t?

For example, my last Holter Monitor report showed 252 PACs and 152 Pvcs in 48 hours. However, while wearing that monitor I only felt a few ectopics, unless the rest happened while I was asleep.

    I am so sorry that you are having to manage all of this. What does your doctor say about the results? Thanks Katie

    "non specific ST and T wave abnormalities", are just that, non specific. It basically means your ST segment and T wave don't match the machine's algorithm, and is not as meaningful as your doctors reading. The most important aspect of diagnosis on a 12 lead ECG is comparison to a previous ECG that you have had.
