My ECG test indicated 1st -deg atrioventricular block,complete right bundle branch block. What are my next steps?

See a cardiologist: The next step after finding an abnormal EKG on a routine exam is to determine why.This is where a cardiologist will be most helpful. He will determine wether there is underlying structural heart disease or not and will likely order testing to find out ...Read more

What do you suggest if my EKG say incomplete right bundle branch block borderline !?

What do you suggest if my EKG say incomplete right bundle branch block borderline !?

Often nl variant: This can be a normal variant. It is usually not further worked up. Have you ever had an EKG before? High blood pressure and lung disease are potential causes. There are congenital diseases that cause it, but you're 50. If you have a murmur, you should have an echo. ...Read more

My 17 year old cousins EKG showed leftward axis and incomplete right bundle branch block. It's abnormal for her age but what does it mean?

Ecg: Those findings are not usual for the age but don't necessarily imply any specific pathology present. They need to put together with the rest of her clinical situation to assess whether any explanation suggests itself. ...Read more

What is the connection between right bundle branch block with slow heart beat?

What is the connection between right bundle branch block with slow heart beat?

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 more

How dangerous is an ECG tracing- right nundle branch block septal wall ischemia for an 8 yo/ female child? She's having squeezing chestpain recently.

Possibly Dangerous: I am a pediatric cardiologist. I agree with the other answer--i would strongly recommend you take your child to see a pediatric cardiologist as soon as possible if you haven't already. The diagnosis of bundle branch block and ischemia is serious, but it depends where it is coming from. Machines are not good at interpreting pediatric ecgs. Again, please see a pediatric cardiologist asap. ...Read more

History of WPW and ablation. Now a recent EKG shows sinus brad, sinus arrhythmia and right bundle branch block. Is this a huge deal?

History of WPW and ablation. Now a recent EKG shows sinus brad, sinus arrhythmia and right bundle branch block.  Is this a huge deal?

Wpw: The best person to answer these questions is the ekectrophysioligist who did the procedure, but sinus bradycardia depends in how low tye rate is and whether the patient has symptoms. Respiratory sinus arrhythmia is a normal variant and right bundle branch block is isolation can be a normal vriant ...Read more

What is a bundle branch block?

Wiring: The heart is a muscle but how fast it beats is controlled by special cells, sort of like electric wiring. The main wire divides into two, one to the right and one to the left. If part of that wiring becomes abnormal you get a right or left bundle branch block. It results in a typical pattern on the ekg. ...Read more

What is incomplete bundle branch block?

What is incomplete bundle branch block?

Mild conduction prob: The righty and left ventricles are induced to beat through electrochemical currents transmitted through the right and left bundle branches, respectively. Irbbb means part of the right bundle is not transmitting fully. It is a benign condition of no significant clinical consequence. ...Read more

What is an incomplete bundle branch block?

What is an incomplete bundle branch block?

Not true "block": Two bundles of electrical tissue carry each heartbeat from the top part of the heart to the bottom--the "right" and "left" bundle branches. When one of these doesn't conduct at all, or does so much more slowly than the other, it is a complete bundle branch block. When one conducts slightly slower than the other, it is called "incomplete" bundle block. This often is of no clinical consequence. ...Read more

Is bundle branch block a serious condition?

Is bundle branch block a serious condition?

Bundle branch block: There are two types right bundle and left bundle branch block. Right bundle is most often benign or due to right ventricular hypertrophy. Left bundle is often caused by hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy. Acute left bundle branch block can be very serious. Generally your physician can determine whether the bundle branch block has pathophysiologic significance. ...Read more

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

Dr. Irv Loh Dr. Loh
3 doctors agreed:

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

What is the definition or description of: bundle branch block?

Electrical blocks: 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 detected on an electrocardiogram. ...Read more

Are there more serious blockages that bundle branch block can lead to?

Yes if left bundle: Left bundle branch block is often associated with coronary artery disease and risk of heart attack. This would warrant further investigation with your doctor.

We all are: A 3-word question with no details... well, life is short on Earth, regardless of whether a person lives 3 days, 3000 days, or 30,000 days. It is not length of one's life that matters, but the quality of the life lived. The goal is not to live a long life, but to live a good life.
