What Is The Medical Prognosis For A 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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends, of course: Most cases of bundle branch block are due to a focal injury to a key part of the heart's electrical conduction system. Coronary disease, scarring from trauma, infection, or natural processes can cause it. Some illicit drugs, especially those creating coronary spasm (e.g., cocaine, amphetamines) may create those conditions, and frequent exposure (repetitive) only exacerbates the risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please can you explain what atrial flutter with variable av block
compatible with a bundle branch block. Possible inferior infarction, probably old is?
ECG interpretation.: Atrial flutter: your heart rhythm is abnormal (the atria are contracting very rapidly); variable block: there are a variable number of atrial contractions for every ventricular contraction. A bundle branch block: the ECG complex representing each ventricular contraction is widened due to a block of one branch of your heart's conduction system. Q waves on the ECG suggest an infarct (? Age). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
