Atrial Flutter With Variable Block
What is atrial flutter with variable AV block with premature ventricular or aberrantly conducted complexes? is same with AV Block heart degres 1?
Atrial flutter is an abnormally fast heart beat usually originating from the right atrium of the heart. It can cause the rest of the heart to beat very fast (called tachycardia). It may cause symptoms of palpitations, chest pain or shortness of breath, to name a few. This serious issue should be evaluated by your cardiologist, and further treatment is dependent ...Read more
Please can you explain what atrial flutter with variable av block
compatible with a bundle branch block. Possible inferior infarction, probably old is?
ECG interpretation.: Atrial flutter: your heart rhythm is abnormal (the atria are contracting very rapidly); variable block: there are a variable number of atrial contractions for every ventricular contraction. A bundle branch block: the ECG complex representing each ventricular contraction is widened due to a block of one branch of your heart's conduction system. Q waves on the ECG suggest an infarct (? Age). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Atrial flutter what effective treatment do you advice also with left brendle branch block thank you?
Meds: Many meds can be effective -- talk with your cardiologist -- you also may need to be on anticoagulation. ...Read more
Ekg say flat t waves in v4v5v6.Check av block of higher degree. Absolute arrhythmia, atrial flutter.Inferior myocardial infarction, probably old, normal?
An atrial arrhythmia: The two top chambers of the 4chamber heart are called atria. The normal heartbeat is set off in sinus node, a concentrated bundle of heart cells that sets off the lub (contraction of atria) of the lub dub. Every single heart cell has the capacity to depolarize & set the chambers into contraction. Atrial fibrillation or flutter causes chaotic atrial contrctns. Ekg in flutter looks like a saw tooth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nothing natural: Beyond a healthy lifestyle I am not aware of any specific "natural ways" to treat atrial flutter. It may require medications to control heart rate and/ or maintain normal rhythm. Depending on other risk factors you may need blood thinner to prevent stroke. The classic type of atrial flutter can also be cured by a procedure known as ablation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No doubt: You can die from drinking too much water but it's unlikely. Untreated atrial flutter usually causes a heart rate of 150 which is annoying for most people and, over several months, will weaken the heart muscle leading to heart failure. Blood clots can form inside the atria increasing the risk of stroke. Don't mess with atrial flutter - it needs attention. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Less common than AF: Atrial fluter less common than atrial fibrillation, and is often a indcator of future atrial fibrillation onset. You may not notice them, or you may feel a flutering in your chest. Atrial flutter can be caused by scarring in the heart resulting from prior cardiac disease or heart surgery, but it can also occur in some patients with no other identifiable heart problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
