What is bifascicular block and how is it treated?

What is bifascicular block and how is it treated?

See below: There are 3 fascicles or pathways for cardiac conduction in the heart: the right bundle branch, and the left bundle branch which is subdivided into anterior and posterior fascicles. When 2 of the 3 don't function, it is easily detected on ekg. This causes no symptoms and requires no treatment. Nonetheless it is abnormal and should prompt an evaluation of your general heart health.

An ECGinterprets RIGHT BUNDLE BRANCH BLOCK, LEFT POSTERIOR FASCICULAR BLOCK, BIFASCICULAR BLOCK. I dont' feel any dizziness. Is it normal? Cure for it?

An ECGinterprets RIGHT BUNDLE BRANCH BLOCK, LEFT POSTERIOR FASCICULAR BLOCK, BIFASCICULAR BLOCK. I dont' feel any dizziness. Is it normal? Cure for it?

Not normal: Those findings on EKG are not normal, and are permanent. They can be caused by defects in the conduction system of the heart that you have had since birth, by previous heart attacks, or remodeling of the heart in response to ongoing hypertension. You should consult with a cardiologist for further evaluation.

Can a nerve block cause permanent damage?

Can a nerve block cause permanent damage?

Rare: Though the esi injections are quite safe in the general parlance, yet there always remain some adverse reactions of epidural steroid injections. Temporary pain may be felt by a patient administered with an esi injection. There may be risks of spinal punctures, infections, bleeding inside epidural area with damage to nerves, headaches, & retention of water in the body.

What causes a salivry glan to become blocked an how can this be cured?

What causes a salivry glan to become blocked an how can this be cured?

Sialolithiasis: The stones form from calcium and phosphate crystals often from dehydration, certain medications and sjogren's syndrome and may be pushed or encouraged out of the duct if it is small enough by firm massage or probing while larger stones may require a small incision sometimes the gland and the stone may have to be completely excised.

What causes memory blocks to where a person can only remember certain things but not other things? I have this friend who I've known for about 20 years telling me things we did to gether some years ago and I don't seem to remember any of this, he even tol

Our: Our ability to remember things and events depends a lot on the state of mind we are in while we are doing things. This is called state dependent learning. If we are distracted or under the influence of drugs or medication, we may not store or be able to retrieve memories well or at all. If your friend is telling you about things you did together and you do not recall these things, they may have meant more to him. We filter out things that we don't consider important. If you are having personal problems they will affect your ability to recall less pressing ideas. I don't think there is anything seriously wrong with you.

What causes a person's arteries to be blocked?

What causes a person's arteries to be blocked?

Atherosclerosis: In western civilization, atherosclerosis is the most common reason for a blocked artery. No one knows the exact cause or process, but there are known risk factors: smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and a family history of heart attacks or strokes. Reducing or modifying risk factors has been shown to lower the risk from blocked arteries.

What causes a blocked ear?

What causes a blocked ear?

Eustacian Tube: You may have some form of eustacian tube dysfuction which drains the ear into the nose. Allergy, infection and other causes may result in blockage of the drainage system and fluid pressure is noted with a painful ear.

Can sun block cause cancer?

Can sun block cause cancer?

Nope: However, sun block is very helpful in reducing the effect of uv radiation on developing lethal skin cancers such as melanoma. Avoid excess sun exposure and avoid sunburns, but when out and about always take the added measure of using and re-applying sunblock to avoid toxic damage from the sun.

What causes the sinuses to get blocked?

What causes the sinuses to get blocked?

Blocked sinuses: There may be anatomic airway/nasal deformity, like a deviated nasal septum, overgrown bone (turbinates), or bone at the holes that aerate sinuses. The mucous membranes may swell and block the natural air holes into the sinuses, along with mucous or bacterial exudate (pus). Finally, there are some soft tissue masses (tumors) that can also block these holes. Smoking also aggravates tissues.

Can the nerve blocks cause rsd flare ups?

Can the nerve blocks cause rsd flare ups?

Rsd flare ups: Any injection or irritation to the nerve can cause a flare up, however, the pain physician usually injects steroids at the site which supposed to decrease inflammation at the site to prevent a flare up & increase the threshold for rsd conductance. I would speak to the physician that injected you and look at the paper work that they gave to you after the procedure.

What causes fecalith to block your appendix?

What causes fecalith to block your appendix?

Stone and blockage: Fecoliths are calcified fecal material in appendix. Sometimes it obstructs the appendix causing appendicitis.Imaging with ct and ultrasound now detects smaller appendicoliths that are not obstructing in people without appendicitis. Usually size of lith in association with obstruction, inflammation and infection.

Left anterior fascicular block what it causes?

Left anterior fascicular block what it causes?

What caused it?: These fascicals are the prefered conduction path of the heart beat through the left ventrical, the main pumping chamber of the heart. A block in the fascical is generally caused by a blockage in a heart artery and often that blockage is more important than the fascical. If more fascicals are blocked, you are at risk of needing a pacemaker. Primary cardiomyopathies can cause these problems too.

Can certain medications cause bundle branch block?

Can certain medications cause bundle branch block?

BBB: Certaiin common blood pressure medications and/or antiarrhythmics in very high (not therapeutic) doses can cause bundle branch blocks. Digoxin is very well known to cause conduction abnormalities when in toxic levels.

Is repetitive drug use the cause of a bundle branch block?

Depends, of course: Most cases of bundle branch block are due to a focal injury to a key part of the heart's electrical conduction system. Coronary disease, scarring from trauma, infection, or natural processes can cause it. Some illicit drugs, especially those creating coronary spasm (e.g., cocaine, amphetamines) may create those conditions, and frequent exposure (repetitive) only exacerbates the risk.

Can cause serious damage by picking your noset till it bleeds. I used to drugs 15 yrs ago but as it heals it blocks my nasal passagrs do I pick it.

Rhinitis: You may be suffering from atrophic rhinitis from chronic drug use, try a saline nasal spray and a saline gel, both over the counter to lubricate your nose, improve your congestion and stop the bleeding.

Hi I was wondering if a gangilon nerve block could cause disk problems as I had nine done in 2003 and then had disk problems at c6.And had disk replac?

Most likely not: From your discription I think you had stellate ganglion blocks in your neck... These blocks do not cause disk herniations. Most likely your development of a cervical disk problem at c6 is coincidental. I hope you feel better after your surgery.
