Hello: what is the different between typical wenckebach and atypical wenckebach? Is one more or less dangerous/ serious?

Wenkebach: Am not aware of your terms. There are two forms. Type 1 can occur in normal individuals by certain drugs or heightened vagal tone. Prognosis is usually quite good. Type 2 is almost always due to organic disease involving the conduction system and may lead to complete heart block. A pacemaker may be required. ...Read more

I have asymptomatic wenckebach. Can I go on rollercoasters? I'm scared to but don't want it ruining my life

How long had it?: Wenckebach is not in and of itself dangerous and excitement should make it less significant. If it is a long-standing condition and there is no reason to believe it is getting worse then you need not worry about it. If you enjoy roller coasters, go ahead and ride. How long have you had this condition? ...Read more

I have asymptomatic wenckebach type 1. When I feel my pulse I feel it stop then start. Is that normal?

Yes it is normal: This type of heart block is not a serious or life threatening problem. It will be very typical to have skipped beats in this rhythm. I would suggest a 24 hour monitor of your heart rhythm to make sure there is no evidence of any other type of heart block or rhythm disturbance. Your primary doctor can easily order this test. ...Read more

I was just diagnoses with a wenckebach heart block. What lifestyle changes do I need to make?

None: If you ever pass out and it correlates with your heart rhythm, you'll need a pacemaker. But that's unlikely as Wenckebach doesn't usually progress or result in prolonged pauses. There is nothing you can do or avoid that will affect your heart rhythm positively or negatively. ...Read more

Can stimulants affect mobitz type two heart block (wenckebach)?

Can stimulants affect mobitz type two heart block (wenckebach)?

Mixed Terms: Your question is contradictory. Mobitz I is wenckebach. I suspect you meant 2nd degree heart block. In which case, yes, stimulants increase the overall heart rate, increasing the stress on the lower conduction system we call the his-purkinje system, and increasing the likelihood that it will block. If the problem improves with caffeine, the problem was likely at the av nodal level instead. ...Read more

Hi I have recently had a holter moniter for 6 days which showed sinus rhythm throughout occasional pvcs and pacs and a few 1 degree heart blocks. Also isolated wenchebach at night could u help I am severely anxious that it's serious?

Hi I have recently had a holter moniter for 6 days which showed sinus rhythm throughout occasional pvcs and pacs and a few 1 degree heart blocks. Also isolated wenchebach at night could u help I am severely anxious that it's serious?

No: Nothing on your Holter monitor findings is life threatening. Having said that, not sure of the clinical scenario that prompted you to get one to start with, nor do I know your age and/or if u r on any medicines that may cause some of this as a side-effect. Either have a frank discussion with the doctor ordering and interpreting your Holter or request a consult on this platform. ...Read more
