What Is The Treatment For A Right Bundle Branch Block Is This Serious
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 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
None necessary: No treatment necessary and it is not serious unless other heart blocks or conditions are present. ...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
Hoping you can tell me, is right bundle branch block (rbbb) something to really stress over everyday?
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
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 with out the prescriber being aware. ...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
After my ecg results I've been told I've got a right bundle branch block (incomplete) Is this serious? Do I need treatment? Need to aware anyone?
How do you feel?: This is quite common in folks who are otherwise healthy. When you get seen by a new caregiver, let them know. If you are otherwise we'll, I would not be concerned. ...Read more
Placebo, 10 mg: Incomplete rbbb is, in the majority of patients, normal variant caused by simple delay of the right bundle conduction relative to the left bundle's conduction. It is benign (safe), and no specific treatment is recommended or required. Certain other conditions can cause a right bundle branch block, but the treatment is generally focused on those conditions, and not the bundle block. ...Read more
No: Generally RBBB is not serious - it can even be present from birth. With your hx of SVT, there are certain abnormalities that need to be considered and excluded: atrial septal defect and mitral stenosis. Lung conditions can cause it. Sometime high blood pressure is the cause. There are rare causes too, but in most cases, it's an isolated finding of no significance. In itself RBBB causes no symptoms ...Read more
I have gone through ECG. It reports right bundle branch block and bifascular block. Is it normal? How can I cure it? What precautions should be taken?
I am diabetic, age 36. I have lightheadedness problem also. Yesterday I got 'Right Bundle Branch Block' in my ECG report. Is it a serious problem?
Not really: RBBB typically is not a worrisome finding as it does not correlate with ischemia/CAD as new LBBB does. Having said that, because you are "lightheaded", a holter monitor and resting echo may be warranted to evaluate for any other arrhythmias and for structural heart disease, respectively, if any. Last as u r of South Asian descent, pls be sure to check ur fasting lipids, glucose and don't smoke. ...Read more
An ECGinterprets RIGHT BUNDLE BRANCH BLOCK, LEFT POSTERIOR FASCICULAR BLOCK, BIFASCICULAR BLOCK. I dont' feel any dizziness. Is it normal? Cure for it?
Not normal: Those findings on EKG are not normal, and are permanent. They can be caused by defects in the conduction system of the heart that you have had since birth, by previous heart attacks, or remodeling of the heart in response to ongoing hypertension. You should consult with a cardiologist for further evaluation. ...Read more
Wiring of heart: Sinus rhythm means that the electrical activity that controls the contraction of the heart, starts in the sinus node. Right bundle branch block means that the right bundle (part of the electrical wiring) does not conduct the impulse which changes the appearance of the ekg. Right bundle branch block as opposed to left bundle branch block is usually benign. ...Read more
No: Among the bad things smoking marijuana does to the heart and lungs are the noticeable rise in heart rate and blood pressure, the increased demand for oxygen by the contracting heart muscle, followed by vasodilation (blood vessels relax and dilate) with a drop in blood pressure as smoking mj continues; the abnormal rhythms in the upper heart, and maybe abnormal ventricular (lower heart) rhythms. ...Read more
Can Lexapro (escitalopram) cause a right bundle branch block? If so, will it return to normal after stopping the medication?
Can I run if I have a right bundle branch block? Dr found it on an ekg and she didn't seem too worried about it. I didn't know if the slow rate is ok.
Check to see; IRBBB: If you say your doctor isn't worried about it then, can you ASK if she means you've an INCOMPLETE RBBB as opposed to a RBBB that's NOT incomplete. The former is believed likely benign in the vast majority of people & is found in many asymptomatic healthy individuals. The latter needs a bit more work to say that it's benign.

Abnormal conduction: The signal to beat is distributed to through the heart by a specialized electrical system. The right bundle is one of the branches of this system. If conduction through the right bundle is slowed or blocked the parts of the heart it serves will contract late, seen as widening of the electrocardiographic qrs-wave. Unless the remainder of the conduction system fails, it usually isn't a problem. ...Read more
I have been told I have a right bundle branch block am I okay still to be working out and doing cardio. I have anxiety and exercise is how I cope????
A Published study has good news for you: https://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/6826977
Yes, you can exercise. Do let your provider know your routine. Avoid getting your HR over 180 and consider shorter, less intensely rigorous routines - but if you don't overdo it - it's good for you. Avoid dizziness, exhaustion, out of breath causing choices and hydrate well. Good for you! ...Read more
Probably not: A right bundle branch block is either slowed or blocked conduction in one of the three fascicles ("wires") that connect the top chambers to the bottom chambers of the heart. Generally speaking, if the right bundle block has been there a while, it'll stay. Sometimes they come and go, but that's like an extension cord on the fritz and sparking. Good news: you'll be fine with just the left bundle. ...Read more
Is it safe for someone with a right bundle branch block to take the medications Elavil/Desryl seperate and/or together?
RBBB: Both these medications list cardiac conduction abnormalities, and RBBB is one, as contraindications to their use. I have seen patients with chronic, longstanding RBBB tolerate low dose Elavil in past years. Other antidepressants may be considered in such patients. Your pharmacist or a cardiologist would be better qualified to answer this question, however. ...Read more
Irbbb usually safe: Irbbb is usually an ECG anomaly that may speak of some right sided enlargement or strain (can occur in atrial septal defect or in pulmonary processes with right heart strain). It can also occur innocuously and unrelated to cardiac structural changes. It does not typically imply impending conduction system collapse and is not a predictor for cardiac arrest or sudden cardiac death. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with a right bundle branch block in 2014. My new doctor prescribed Flexeril for back pain. Is this medication safe for me to take?
Right bundle branch:
I would highly recommend that you consult with your cardiologist befor taking this medication.
When you see your cardiologist next have him give you a list of medications that are contraindicated with your heart condition ...Read more
In my ECG results reflects Sinus Tachycardia; incomplete right bundle branch block. Is it something I should concern seriously about?
ECG: Those results in and of themselves are not a big deal. Discuss with your doctor for your specific status. ...Read more
