Nonspecific ST-T changes: nonspecific but not necessarily insignificant

The point is illustrated in this post at the ECG Interpretation blog.

Two important points were made:

We should not be so dismissive about the common ECG reading “NSST-T abnormality.”

ST segment flattening, even if the segment is isoelectric, is abnormal and suggests ischemia.
Barney Marriott was fond of saying that the ST segment “should never hug the baseline.”
