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

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

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

What is the difference between complete right bundle branch block and incomplete right bundle branch block?

What is the difference between complete right bundle branch block and incomplete right bundle branch block?

Duration: A complete right bundle branch block has a qrs duration of 120 milliseconds or more, an incomplete rbbb is less than 120 milliseconds. ...Read more

What are differences between left bundle branch block and right bundle branch block?

What are differences between left bundle branch block and 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

What is an incomplete right bundle branch block?

What is an incomplete right bundle branch block?

Slowing: It means there is a mild slowing of the electrical conduction in a certain part of your heart. In most cases it is an incidental finding and not worrisome. ...Read more

Can you explain incomplete right bundle branch block?

Can you explain incomplete right bundle branch block?

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

What does incomplete right bundle branch block indicate?

May be nothing: Incomplete right bundle branch block indicates a slight delay in the electrical conduction in the right bundle. It is often found on a routine ECG and almost always has no clinical consequences. ...Read more

What does it mean to have an incomplete right bundle branch block?

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

My son had an EKG today and was told he has incomplete right bundle branch block, he is only 17 should I be concerned ?

Probably ok: The pattern that triggers the automatic diagnosis of IRBBB in an ECG machine is an 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

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 do you suggest if my EKG say incomplete right bundle branch block borderline !?

What do you suggest if my EKG say incomplete right bundle branch block borderline !?

Often nl variant: This can be a normal variant. It is usually not further worked up. Have you ever had an EKG before? High blood pressure and lung disease are potential causes. There are congenital diseases that cause it, but you're 50. If you have a murmur, you should have an echo. ...Read more

What impact has the RIGHT BUNDLE BRANCH BLOCK INCOMPLETE, for a child 14 years old, playing soccer?

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
