What Is The Difference Between Incomplete And Complete Right Bundle Branch Block
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
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
I was told by my cardiologist I have right bundle branch block; there was no cause for concern. Can condition worsen? Can rbbb worsen?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 the difference between complete right bundle branch block and incomplete right bundle branch block?
The location: Obviously the location of the electrical block in the conduction of electric impulses from the atrium to the ventricles is different. The electrical signals travel to the two ventricles through the left and the right bundle, the left then bifurcates to two fascicles itself. In my experience, the non-pathologic presence of right bundle branch block is more common. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not much: It is a benign EKG finding related to a slight delay in the conduction system (like electrical wiring) of the heart. It is more common in those with an atrial septal defect (hole between left and right heart) but in general is benign, nothing to worry about. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mild condabrupt prob: The righty and left ventricles are induced to beat through electrochemical currents transmitted through the right and left bundle branches, respectively. Irbbb means part of the right bundle is not transmitting fully. It is a benign condition of no significant clinical consequence. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
