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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

What is the causes of the incomplete right branch bundle block?

What is the causes of the incomplete right branch bundle block?

Incomplete RBBB: This is a relatively innocuous condition where the electrical conduction in the right ventricle is not completely normal. It is believed to be due to an abnormality in the electrical conduction fibers. It is not typically associated with any clinically significant cardiac problem. The vast majority of persons with this do absolutely fine and live normal lives. ...Read more

What are causes of left bundle branch block?

What are causes of left bundle branch block?

Various causes: Left bundle branch block is a pattern seen on an EKG indicating an abnormal or different pathway of the electrical signal that causes the heart muscle to contract. It is most often due to an underlying medical condition such as hypertension, a heart attack, an enlarged heart from any cause and only when serious conditions are excluded is it felt due to the benign aging of the conduction pathway. ...Read more

Has anyone heard of causes of a blocked tear duct?

Has anyone heard of causes of a blocked tear duct?

Not well developed: Blocked tear duct is quite common in newborn babies, mostly because the duct is still quite small and well-formed yet. Usually after 6 montns or so as the duct enlarge and mature (more well-formed, it drains better and the blockage is resolved. Often, no treatment is needed. Some persistent cases may need a bit of probing to open it up. Hope this makes sense to you. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm having symptoms of blocked submandibular gland. Can you offer any info or causes?

Fluids and sours: Similar to kidney stones you want to increase hydration to help flush, thin secretions. You also want to increase excretion (output). This is done by stimulating saliva production. Sucking on lemons, or sour candy. Warm compresses and milking may also be recommended in addition to the above. See your local ENT specialist. ...Read more
