What Is The Survival Rate With Left Complete Bundle Branch Block
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It is common in older age, and usually due to scarring of the pathway. It may cause no symptoms and need no therapy. It can lead to marked slowing that needs a pacemaker. A new lbbb can also be a sign of a heart attack. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Various causes: Left bundle branch block is a pattern seen on an EKG indicating an abnormal or different pathway of the electrical signal that causes the heart muscle to contract. It is most often due to an underlying medical condition such as hypertension, a heart attack, an enlarged heart from any cause and only when serious conditions are excluded is it felt due to the benign aging of the conduction pathway. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
