Hello,

Greetings,

AV block means atrioventricular block-Normally impulse starts at the sinoatrial node of the atrium and travels through the ventricle. When the impulse reaches the ventricle with longer time it is known as first degree AV block. It is the least amount of AV block.
Sinus bradycardia is the slower rate of impulse generation from heart. This can result from many causes & can be seen in normal persons particularly athletes. It is also seen in hypothyroidism, increased vagal nerve activity as with straining & a few other conditions.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your healthy life.
Any query, please ask.
Regards.
