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
