J waves can commonly be seen in patients with severe hypothermia. Fig. 1 shows an ECG recording of a patient undergoing coronary artery revascularisation with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass. The purple recording shows the ECG with a small, existing J wave early during the initiation of cooling. The green overlay demonstrates the accentuation of the J wave as the patient was further cooled to 29°C.
