Fourth Degree Heart Block
Not the same: Both are types of fatigue in the heart's wiring system. 1st degree heart block is when there is a delay in the signal getting from atria down to ventricles. That's minor. In more advanced heart block, some beats dont get through at all. In lbbb, there is no block between atria + ventricles but there is a delay in the signal spreading within the ventricles, which doesnt cause symptoms by itself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My recent EKG reads sinus brady with 1st degree AV Block incomplete right bundle branch block. Am I at a greater risk for heart failure or a fib?
Correct: AllButBrady: damaged muscle cells, most commonly from blood supply issues (artery disease, by US autopsy studies >8 decades, present 1/2 population by age 7), arteries enlarge, not narrow, thus not clinically apparent for decades until vulnerable plaques rupture releasing WBCs triggering clots & blood flow blocked to capillaries. Same issue underlying atrial fib. All issues missed by conventional tests. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mixed Terms: Your question is contradictory. Mobitz i is wenckebach. I suspect you meant 2nd degree heart block. In which case, yes, stimulants increase the overall heart rate, increasing the stress on the lower conduction system we call the his-purkinje system, and increasing the likelihood that it will block. If the problem improves with caffeine, the problem was likely at the av nodal level instead. ...Read more
Depends on the cause: First degree heart block is actually a misnomer as there is no conduction "block". The more accurate term is prolonged av conduction and this may be the result of medications, metabolic derangements or thyroid disease. Correcting the medication dose or type may correct the first degree heart block. Often times the first degree heart block occurs for unknown reasons and does not correct. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is atrial flutter with variable AV block with premature ventricular or aberrantly conducted complexes? is same with AV Block heart degres 1?
Ekg say flat t waves in v4v5v6.Check av block of higher degree. Absolute arrhythmia, atrial flutter.Inferior myocardial infarction, probably old, normal?
SVT Is the lifetime chance of devoloping venticular fibrillation due to accesory pathway capable of anterograde conduction <1% When ecg was normal?
Wpw : Extremely low if antegrade conduction so rare ...Read more
It depends: Right bundle branch block(rbbb) in itself is usually a benign disturbance of conduction system of the heart. It usually does associated with adverse effects. However, it may be a part of other serious conduction disorders of heart (like high degree av block). Therefore, it may not be the cause of but a part of findings in a slow heart rate. Also remember, slow heart rate is not always bad. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Predominantly sinus rhythm, with evidence of 2:1AV heart block (type II). 3rd degree block reported, now thought to be 2 beat P wave asystole. worry?
Could there be a connection between my mobitz 1 heart block and the slight heart murmur the cardiologist heard?
Bad stuff: Your heart rhythm is normally a carefully coordinated event that has a natural progression electrically to create an effective forceful heart beat. When you have 3rd degree block, it's completely discordant (ie nothing is working together) . When the different parts of the heart are doing their own thing without communicating properly, it's life threatening and requires a pacemaker ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heart dz n stroke: Both of these illnesses can be caused by vascular disease, or that is, changes in the arteries due to high blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, or genetic factors. Similarly, these conditions can be mitigated and prevented by looking after vascular risk factors and addressing them. ...Read more
