Can You Treat Right Bundle Branch Block
Generally Not: It usually indicates partial or complete dysfunction of 1 of the 3 major conductors to the lower chamber of the heart. No need to worry though - you only need 1 of the 3 to keep things humming along, and the "right bundle" is the least durable of the 3. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
There are 2 main branches of the heart's electrical system within the ventricles, the right bundle branch and the left bundle branch. Additionally, the left bundle branch has two sub-branches, the antero-superior fascicle and the posteroinferior fascicle. When one or more branches are disrupted, the resultant electrical abnormalities can be ...Read more

Somewhat benign but an evaluation need to be done to r/o heart and lung conditions. Conditions like copd, cad, myocarditis, valvular heart disease, and other structural heart conditions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Right bundle branch block and Z-pack (Azithromycin) prescribed for infection. Haven't taken yet, any concern for heart issues with RBBB and Azithro?
BBB: ECG QT interval prolongation can be a concern with azithromycin,the bundle block adds to the measured QT interval ,however the more relevant measure is the JT interval that ECG machines don't record/measure,consult locally with the prescribing physician.Also don't delay antibiosis with out the prescriber being aware. ...Read more
Abnormal conduction: The signal to beat is distributed to through the heart by a specialized electrical system. The right bundle is one of the branches of this system. If conduction through the right bundle is slowed or blocked the parts of the heart it serves will contract late, seen as widening of the electrocardiographic qrs-wave. Unless the remainder of the conduction system fails, it usually isn't a problem. ...Read more
Many: It can be congenital. It is often present with right ventricular or right atrial pressure or volume overload such as occurs with atrial or ventricular septal defect. Hypertension causes many cases. Pulmonary artery hypertension, as occurs in advanced lung disease or pulmonary embolism, can cause it. Finally, it's present in many healthy people for no reason at all. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
