Medicine For Atrioventricular Node Conduction Block
Slow heart rate.: Atrioventricular block results from impaired or absent conduction of electrical signals from the upper to the lower chambers of the heart. This may be caused by increased nervous system activity, medications that slow conduction in the atrioventricular node, or damage to the atrioventricular node. The severity may vary from no symptoms to slowing of the heart resulting in dizziness or fainting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: There are some genetic conditions associated with heart block, some associated with deafness. In these cases, the heart block is permanent. If your heart block is transitory, it may be related to some medications you are taking (if any) or underlying conditions, depending on your age. You should see a doctor to determine if further tests or treatments (e.g. Pacemaker) are needed. ...Read more
Brakes: This is specialized conduction tissue between the atria (upper chambers) and ventricles. The normal heart beat arises from the atria an passes through this node to the ventricles to stimulate contraction. If something goes awry in the atria causing a very rapid heart rate, the AV node will prevent some of these impulse from getting through, limiting how fast your heart will beat in response. ...Read more
Modulate impulses: The AV node is electrical tissue that separates the upper from the lower chambers of your heart. On an ECG, it relates to the PR segment. The AV node slows impulses briefly from the top to the lower chambers of the heart and prevents very rapid upper heart beats from causing dangerous fast heart beating of the major lower chambers of the heart. Blockage of AV node (ablation) stops impulses. ...Read more
AVB has 3 flavors: There is 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree av block. 1st degree is just slower conduction through av node than normal. In 2nd degree there is a progressive slowing of conduction until complete failure to get through and then the cycle repeats itself . It is usually not symptomatic. In 3rd degree there is no conduction getting through and the ventricles beat by an escape beat that is usually very slow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi Jan, just wanted to let you know that I have C6 compression documented by neck spine MRI, nerve conduction studies and it is not postcholecystectomy syndrome as you diagnosed yesterday. Just goes to show you that medicine online doesn't work. I am st
Is a nonspecific intraventricular conduction delay with a left posterior fascicular block anything to be concerned with? Chest hurts! Normal echo.
Can you help me understand this? POSSIBLE RIGHT VENTRICULAR CONDUCTION DELAY
LEFT ANTERIOR FASCICULAR BLOCK
POSSIBLE ANTERIOR MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION,
34 y/o m waking with "shiver up spine" sensation, chest/left arm. Mri, blood tests normal. Ekg-conduction block, dr. Says not it. Help with cause?
Not sure/ck. heart.: This can still point to a problem with your heart since it seems to go to your left arm. Your age is somewhat early for heart disease, but a positive family history for coronary artery disease could still mean you have to check it out. This is still nonspecific, so it could also be an early ulcer, or possibly an aneurysm in the aorta which has back pain. A full workup by your doctor would help. ...Read more
I have a very high blood pressure of 155/80, diziness..found "sinus tachycardia" and "intraventricular conduction block"..in ECG..is this dangerous..
Potentially: While a blood pressure of 155/89 is NOT "very high", if you have other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, treatment should be considered. Regarding the sinus tachycardia, the seriousness of it depends on what's causing it. The intraventricular conduction block, by itself, isn't dangerous, but it may be a sign of more serious heart problems. You are right to take this seriously. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had shoulder (top back) pain for 3 weeks. Have seen 4 GP and Physio. Last week saw a Sports Medicine specialist who indicated he suspected I have carpal tunnel syndrome. Will a nerve conduction test show where the problem is. Pain also in arm?
Carpal tunnel: I would doubt that the discomfort in the back of your shoulder is caused by carpal tunnel syndrome unless hand and finger symptoms are placing strain on your shoulder even if an EMG reveals carpal tunnel problems. You may have a shoulder tendonitis. A shoulder and neck xray is worthwhile to look for bone pathology or arthritis if neckpain Another opinion from an orthopedic specialist is worthwhile ...Read more
AV block: Fatigue is typical of complete av block, common with second degree av block and unusual with first degree av block. ...Read more
AV dissociation: Atrioventricular dissociation can occur with or without heart block. For example, during ventricular tachycardia, the ventricular impulses are usually not going retrogradely to the atrium, so there is av dissociation without any heart block. The important thing is whether av dissociation is resulting in a ventricular rate slow enough to be symptomatic with dizziness or syncope. ...Read more
