What is left bundle branch block is characterized by?

Found on EKG: It is caused by a block in the "electrical wiring" of the heart which affects the appearance of the ekg. It most of the time indicates a significant problem with the heart but can at times be benign. ...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

Is partial right bundle branch block affected by food?

No Effect: Incomplete right bundle branch block is a benign variant of the electrical conduction through the heart. It is not effected by food in any way. ...Read more

What is a right bundle branch block?

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

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

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

What is a bundle branch block?

What is a bundle branch block?

Wiring: The heart is a muscle but how fast it beats is controlled by special cells, sort of like electric wiring. The main wire divides into two, one to the right and one to the left. If part of that wiring becomes abnormal you get a right or left bundle branch block. It results in a typical pattern on the ekg. ...Read more

What is the treatment for incomplete right bundle branch block? Is this serious? Age 24...

No treatment: This is a minor conduction delay in your heart, and is very common. Often this is considered a variation of normal, and is usually not associated with other cardiac pathology. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: bundle branch block?

Electrical blocks: 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 detected on an electrocardiogram. ...Read more

What is the causes of the incomplete right branch bundle block?

What is the causes of the incomplete right branch bundle block?

Incomplete RBBB: This is a relatively innocuous condition where the electrical conduction in the right ventricle is not completely normal. It is believed to be due to an abnormality in the electrical conduction fibers. It is not typically associated with any clinically significant cardiac problem. The vast majority of persons with this do absolutely fine and live normal lives. ...Read more

Is left bundle branch block caused by rheumatic fever as a child?

Perhaps: Rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease refers to what we call a pancarditis. That means that the entire heart is playing in this condition. That's why we take strep infection so seriously. And yes i left bundle branch block can occur but is not the most common occurrence when someone has rheumatic heart disease or rheumatic fever. ...Read more

What is an incomplete bundle branch block?

Not true "block": Two bundles of electrical tissue carry each heartbeat from the top part of the heart to the bottom--the "right" and "left" bundle branches. When one of these doesn't conduct at all, or does so much more slowly than the other, it is a complete bundle branch block. When one conducts slightly slower than the other, it is called "incomplete" bundle block. This often is of no clinical consequence. ...Read more
