Disturbances (e.g., tall,peaked, inverted) in T waves can occur due toelectrolyte imbalances, ischemia, andinfarction. Disturbances in the P wave can be due to alterations in atrial conduction.Disturbances in the Q wave can occur due to myocardial infraction. Disturbances inthe S wave do not affect the normal functioning of heart.P waveQ waveS waveT wave
