Recommended Exercises With A Bundle Branch Block
Not a rhythm problem: Bundle branch block is an anatomic or physiologic problem in conducting electrical impulses in part of the hearts conduction system. It is not a rhythm disturbance though it can be related to rhythm disturbances. Bundle branch blocks commonly exist with normal sinus rhythm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Please can you explain what atrial flutter with variable av block
compatible with a bundle branch block. Possible inferior infarction, probably old is?
ECG interpretation.: Atrial flutter: your heart rhythm is abnormal (the atria are contracting very rapidly); variable block: there are a variable number of atrial contractions for every ventricular contraction. A bundle branch block: the ECG complex representing each ventricular contraction is widened due to a block of one branch of your heart's conduction system. Q waves on the ECG suggest an infarct (? Age). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What's the difference between a complete bundle branch block and an incomplete bundle branch block?
Wiring of heart: Sinus rhythm means that the electrical activity that controls the contraction of the heart, starts in the sinus node. Right bundle branch block means that the right bundle (part of the electrical wiring) does not conduct the impulse which changes the appearance of the ekg. Right bundle branch block as opposed to left bundle branch block is usually benign. ...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
Depends: Depends on what caused the lbbb (congenital or after a heart attack), and how much you are drinking. Alcohol in low doses (1-2 drinks/day in men, 1 drink/day in women and older men) is often considered a tonic for the heart and raises "good cholesterol." in higher doses, it can damage the heart, raise blood pressure and cause heart rhythm problems. Talk to your internist or cardiologist about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bundle branch block: Bundle branch block is an anatomic or physiologic problem in conducting electrical impulses in part of the hearts conduction system. If the impulse is blocked in the left bundle one ECG appearance is present, a different one for right bundle branch block. These can be of minor or major significance depending on the patient's own situation. In and of themselves bundle branch blocks are not fatal. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im waiting a PFO closure and my ECG showed sinus rhythm with partial right bundle branch block are they the same thing?
No: Incomplete rbbb is the textbook finding in the presence of pfo and is due to right ventricular volume overload over a long time. Irbbb, itself, is harmless, doesn't cause symptoms, is just a marker, and doesn't need treatment. Sinus rhythm is the medical name for normal rhythm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
