What are treatments for incomplete right bundle branch block?

What are treatments for incomplete right bundle branch block?

Placebo, 10 mg: Incomplete rbbb is, in the majority of patients, normal variant caused by simple delay of the right bundle conduction relative to the left bundle's conduction. It is benign (safe), and no specific treatment is recommended or required. Certain other conditions can cause a right bundle branch block, but the treatment is generally focused on those conditions, and not the bundle block. ...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

Hoping you can tell me, is right bundle branch block (rbbb) something to really stress over everyday?

Hoping you can tell me, is right bundle branch block (rbbb) something to really stress over everyday?

Not really: Rt bbb is a common ekg finding and it may occur in some medical conditions.But it is also common in some people with normal heart it occurs in conditionsthat effect the right ventricle or the lungs.If you are otherwise healthy and no other symptoms and your doctor gave you clean chit, than you do not need to stress over it every day. ...Read more

Would it be possible that a rbbb (right bundle branch block) cause a heart murmur?

Would it be possible that a rbbb (right bundle branch block) cause a heart murmur?

No: A rbbb is a pattern seen in the ECG where the electrical impulse is delay or interrupted as it spread along the heart. Prevalence increase with age. At 80 y/o close to 10% people can have it. Somewhat benign but an evaluation need to be done to r/o heart and lung conditions. Conditions like copd, cad, myocarditis, valvular heart disease, and other structural heart conditions. ...Read more

Right bundle branch block and Z-pack (Azithromycin) prescribed for infection. Haven't taken yet, any concern for heart issues with RBBB and Azithro?

Right bundle branch block and Z-pack (Azithromycin)  prescribed for infection. Haven't taken yet, any concern for heart issues with RBBB and Azithro?

BBB: ECG QT interval prolongation can be a concern with azithromycin,the bundle block adds to the measured QT interval ,however the more relevant measure is the JT interval that ECG machines don't record/measure,consult locally with the prescribing physician.Also don't delay antibiosis with out the prescriber being aware. ...Read more

What is a right bundle branch block?

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
