What Is The Difference Between Incomplete And Complete Right Bundle Branch Block
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 every day?
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, then you do not need to stress over it every day. ...Read more
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
I was told by my cardiologist I have right bundle branch block; there was no cause for concern. Can condition worsen? Can rbbb worsen?
Generally not: This is the most common "abnormal" ECG finding seen in otherwise "normal" patients. ...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?
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 without 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 more
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 more
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 more
Subtle conduction: Abnormality in heart's electrical system. Frequently a benign variant. ...Read more
My son had an EKG today and was told he has incomplete right bundle branch block, he is only 17 should I be concerned?
The pattern that triggers the automatic diagnosis of IRBBB in an ECG machine is a rsr' in lead v1, (pronounced: "r s r-prime in v-1").
This pattern is not uncommon and may represent a normal variant, especially in young people and children.
If other symptoms occur or conditions are suspected, such as an asd, the ECG and patient will need to be evaluated by a cardiologist. ...Read more
Irbbb: It means conduction slowing in the right bundle branch of the conduction system. ...Read more
Hello again jmercado --
you have an abnormal ECG -- but this could be an isolated ECG abnormality or it could mean more if you are not feeling well — and you should talk to your doctor about this -. ...Read more
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
Often nothing: As this is frequently a benign finding. ...Read more
Normal variant: It's a normal variant. Not to worry. ...Read more
What impact has the RIGHT BUNDLE BRANCH BLOCK INCOMPLETE, for a child 14 years old, playing soccer?
None: This should not preclude any physical activity if it is the only abnormal finding on EKG. It is likely something he was born with, and will not have any long term effects. ...Read more
