In brief: Heart Block

The term heart block does not relate to blockages in the arteries of the heart, but to block in the flow of electrical current in the electrical conducting system of the heart.
Heart block results in slow heart beats, which may give rise to severe dizziness or syncope (passing out). But heart block is not the usual cause of dizziness, which has many other causes.

Complete av block causes a dissociation of atrial and ventricular electrical activity. The symptoms are those of very slow heart rate, lightheaded, weak, dizzy and sob.
