I have congestive heart failure with a 30% ejection fraction, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy , and left bundle branch block is it safe for me to fly?

I have  congestive heart failure with a 30% ejection fraction, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy , and left bundle branch block is it safe for me to fly?

Depends: It depends on your overall health. Do you have an icd, are you on daily oxygen, daily medications, can you sit for exended lengths of time, how long is the flight? Commercial airlines have cabin pressures set to about 7000ft. So if you can tolerate that altitude (denver is about 5600ft), air travel may be ok. Discuss with your doctor. Tsa will need to know if you have an icd. ...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

What is the connection between right bundle branch block with slow heart beat?

What is the connection between right bundle branch block with slow heart beat?

It depends: Right bundle branch block(rbbb) in itself is usually a benign disturbance of conduction system of the heart. It usually does associated with adverse effects. However, it may be a part of other serious conduction disorders of heart (like high degree av block). Therefore, it may not be the cause of but a part of findings in a slow heart rate. Also remember, slow heart rate is not always bad. ...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

I have been diagnosed with a right bundle branch block of the heart. Can I reverse this?

I have been diagnosed with a right bundle branch block of the heart. Can I reverse this?

Probably not: A right bundle branch block is either slowed or blocked conduction in one of the three fascicles ("wires") that connect the top chambers to the bottom chambers of the heart. Generally speaking, if the right bundle block has been there a while, it'll stay. Sometimes they come and go, but that's like an extension cord on the fritz and sparking. Good news: you'll be fine with just the left bundle. ...Read more

Iv been told I have incomplete right bundle branch block. Docs keep sayin don't worry you had an heart echo a 12 months was normal am worried please help?

Iv been told I have incomplete right bundle branch block. Docs keep sayin don't worry you had an heart echo a 12 months was normal am worried please help?

Not dangerous: Incomplete rbbb is not a life-threatening finding in and of itself, especially if without symptoms and if your ECG had the same finding last year and echo was normal. ...Read more

So now my 17 year old cousin has a grade 2 heart murmur, leftward axis, and incomplete right bundle branch block. What can all this mean? I'm scared!

So now my 17 year old cousin has a grade 2 heart murmur, leftward axis, and incomplete right bundle branch block. What can all this mean? I'm scared!

My best guess: Heart murmur, left axis deviation of the frontal plane qrs axis, and an rsr' in v1 (irbb) makes pediatric cardiologists suspicious of an osmium primum atrial septal defect. Typically, this presents in the first few months or years of life, but it can present in adulthood. To sort this out, your cousin needs an echocardiogram. ...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

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?

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 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

Rule out murmue: some forms of heart murmurs could cause the symptoms you are describing and can be detected on an echocardiogram which you've likely had. This could also be a form of tinnitus that can be evaluated by an ENT. Hope it goes away. ...Read more

My husband just had an ECG done and it came out as Sinus Bradycardia (which isn't a big deal) but also has Incomplete right bundle branch block and left anterior fascicular block. We called and got a referral to a cardiologist (next 7 days). I'm just wo

Worried: you got an ecg as did your husband. You are worried. You have incomplete right bunble block and left ant fascilular block. Over all the cardiologist will look for prolonged qt and a detailed history of any family history. When you see your cardiologist answer all the questions and have a good family history. Tell any medications or holistic medications also. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Is heart block the same as rate related left bundle branch block?

Is heart block the same as rate related left bundle branch block?

Not the same: Both are types of fatigue in the heart's wiring system. 1st degree heart block is when there is a delay in the signal getting from atria down to ventricles. That's minor. In more advanced heart block, some beats dont get through at all. In lbbb, there is no block between atria + ventricles but there is a delay in the signal spreading within the ventricles, which doesnt cause symptoms by itself. ...Read more

Slow Heart Rate (Definition)

Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, people in good cardiovascular shape have a low heart rate. People with certain heart conditions may take medications which lower the heart rate as one of ...Read more
