RBBB is more common in high blood pressure cases, but if is with heart attack the issue is serious and has to be tackled in a proper way. they may need a pacemaker also, along with angioplasty.

incomplete RBBB could be a normal variant and usually an innocous conduction disorder. RBBB seldom progresses to high degree blocks. Get a angiography done once she's stabilised medically.

RBBB is right bundle branch block. In the the blood vessel supplying the heart is blockes, hence heart will not be able to function and this needs to be treated

I have had three heart attacks over the past two years. I have been referred to four doctors for my heart exams, lab work, etc. Each doctor recommends another medication for me. I am real uneasy about four doctors not knowing what the other has given me. I am taking 15 meds right now from four doctors. Is my concern warranted?

I had diverticulitis again. It didnt seem to react the same way as the other times. Been taking antibiotics, but now I find out I have a bladder infection. I have been having heart palpitations since March. Even though they say they aren t too serious, they don t go away totally. Then, I worry and that makes them worse. I d feel ok if it wasn t my heart palpitations. I don t necessarily hurt. What could I do about these heart palpitations.

I am 48, 5 ft 11 inches 180 lbs. I have been experiencing an irregular heartbeat for periods of 5 - 30 minutes for the past week. The one common factor is eating a fairly large meal and feeling very full. I notice it first in the abdomen then check my pulse where the heart rate is irregular but not fast. I exercise regularly (4x per week; run 4 - 5 miles on exercise day). I have been diagnosed with PACs but this is different, the irregular heartbeat lasts much longer than in the past. What might be the problem and what should I do?
