Electrocardiogram (Definition)

Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more

Is left bundle branch block reversible?

Is left bundle branch block reversible?

Yes: It is sometimes seen intermittently. It can be present on an EKG and not on one done at a later date. At times it occurs when the heart is beating fast but not with slower heart rates. ...Read more

Is right bundle branch block serious?

Is right bundle branch block serious?

Depends: Right bundle branch block (rbbb) in and of itself is likely not a detrimental issue, however if it happens in the setting of a heart attack, it portends a poor prognosis. ...Read more

What are differences between left bundle branch block and right bundle branch block?

The location: Obviously the location of the electrical block in the conduction of electric impulses from the atrium to the ventricles is different. The electrical signals travel to the two ventricles through the left and the right bundle, the left then bifurcates to two fascicles itself. In my experience, the non-pathologic presence of right bundle branch block is more common. ...Read more

Is left bundle branch block life shortening?

Is left bundle branch block life shortening?

Possibly: As most people with lbbb have heart muscle abnormalities, yes. But about 15% of people with left bundle branch block have structurally normal hearts, so the answer is maybe or sometimes. ...Read more

Why are left bundle branch blocks worse than right bundle branch blocks?

Why are left bundle branch blocks worse than right bundle branch blocks?

The cause important: The right bundle is relatively easy to damage, so relatively small injuries can create it. The left bundles (two of them, one easy to injure, one hard to damage) require more damage to interfere with their function, so they are associated with "worse" heart disease with the prognosis inherent in your question. Cause is important, so need to talk to your doctors to sort those out. ...Read more

What does incomplete right bundle branch block indicate?

May be nothing: Incomplete right bundle branch block indicates a slight delay in the electrical conduction in the right bundle. It is often found on a routine ECG and almost always has no clinical consequences. ...Read more

Will left bundle branch block cells regenerate?

Usually not: Left bundle branch block (lbbb) develops when 2/3 electrical "wires" in the heart stop working. Many patients can have lbbb and no sx. Lbbb usually reflects aging of the heart but can be seen in a variety of pathological heart conditions. Rarely, medicines which affect the speed of electrical conduction in the heart can cause lbbb which reverses. This technically not cellular regeneration. ...Read more

What is the difference between complete right bundle branch block and incomplete right bundle branch block?

What is the difference between complete right bundle branch block and incomplete right bundle branch block?

Duration: A complete right bundle branch block has a qrs duration of 120 milliseconds or more, an incomplete rbbb is less than 120 milliseconds. ...Read more

What is left atrial abnormality incomplete right bundle block?

Ecg : What you list are electrocardiographic patterns. Left atrial abnormality suggests the possibility of structural abnormalities of the left atrium. Incomplete right bundle branch block suggests slowing of electrical impulse conduction in the right bundle branch of the conduction system. These findings can be associated with abnormal structure and function but are not diagnostic any specific problem. ...Read more

What is right bundle branch blockage?

What is right bundle branch blockage?

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

What is an incomplete right bundle branch block in the heart?

Electrical slowing: The conduction of electricity in the lower chambers of the heart occurs through the left and right bundles. An incomplete right bundle branch block is an insignificant finding, representing a slight slowing in the electrical conduction as it passes through the right side of the heart. Please be aware that this has nothing to do with blockages in the arteries or heart attacks. ...Read more

Bundle Branch Block (Definition)

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
