Hypermagnesemia is also associated with a widening of the QRS duration, and a slight narrowing of the QRS complex may occur with hypomagnesemia. Significant elevation in the serum concentrations of potassium can also cause widening and distortion of the QRS complex. The Abnormal ST Segment Displacement of the ST segment from its baseline characterizes myocardial ischemia or infarction (Fig. 5–5). The subsequent appearance of a Q wave is diagnostic of myocardial infarction. The ECG patterns of these entities reflect the different underlying electrophysiologic states of the heart.

Studies demonstrated that activated charcoal was superior to the universal antidote in decreasing absorption and that the decreased efficacy of the universal antidote was caused by tannic acid interfering with activated charcoal’s adsorption of other toxins. OTHER ANTIQUATED ANTIDOTES Until the 1970s, typical recommendations for the treatment of alkali ingestions included the use of vinegar (acetic acid), lemon juice, or, in some cases, dilute hydrochloric acid. Suggestions for neutralizing acid ingestions included the use of magnesium hydroxide, lime water, and calcium carbonate.

Blockade of the fast sodium channel is characterized by terminal positivity of the QRS complex and ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads (Fig. 5–6). This ECG pattern often occurs in patients who are poisoned by sodium channel blockers, including TCAs, cocaine, and class IA (procainamide) and class IC (flecainide, encainide) antidysrhythmics. In TCA-poisoned patients this pattern is associated with an increased risk of hypotension, but not sudden death or dysrhythmias. Sagging ST segments, inverted T waves, and normal or shortened QT intervals are characteristic effects of cardioactive steroids, such as digoxin, on the electrocardiogram.
