incomplete RBBB should not affect your heart rhythm.
i try to upload the ECG
can you see it?
Yes I can
This is incomplete RBBB.
how can you see it?
I see the picture you uploaded.
The incomplete RBBB is seen on V1, V2 leads
QRS duration is less than 0.12 sec in V1 V2
You have bigger S in lead 1
I do not see your V6 though --but not required since diagnosis is apparent from V1, V2
O i have some more ECG where they don't say its incomplete rbbb
i do have a very slow sleeping heart rate
and sometimes a fast heart rate when doing nothing
In that case, it is better to get a 24 hour holter monitor to capture the heart rhythms during these episodes.
i have had two 24 hours monitors
both showed a heart rate of 34 during sleep
with longest R-R 2.0 seconds
Have you seen a cardiologist yet?
he says he is not worried at all
and says i probertly gonna life long
usually not concerning.
But if you develop dizziness, chest pain, you will need a pacemaker.
yes but he says that a pacemaker on my age is really rare
they also did a echo and that was normal he said
and a stress test when i got up to 300 watts and a heart rate of 198
Yes I agree.
Should be considered in future or if you become symptomatic.
when you get older
does your resting heart rate increases?
Also the heart rate can slow down over old age.
this is because the heart pacemaker degenerates over age.
somebody told me that when you are 25 in most of the time increases while sleeping?
not really --heart rate usually slows down during sleep as your body is not that active.
i meant that when i'm 25 i can have a higher sleeping heart rate
i it also possible when your are overtired that your sleeping heart rate and resting heart rate is lower?
still, it does go up much during sleeping
Yes tiredness can affect your heart rate
hmm maybe thats it i was overstressed during the holters
can that cause a lower sleeping heart rate because you sleep deeper?
yes that is likely
i have a appointment again with the cardiologist the 14th because i dont feel good
i will discuss this with him
i do have a last question
i also saw on the monitor a weird thing
you have the normal ecg line
but sometimes you see at ecg that the baseline moves in height
That can be due to the machine used.
here you see something like that
Yes I have seen that.
That can be normal also in young individual.
yes but why does it make such a dip down?
not the normal baseline
has that something to do with bodymovement?
Yes body movement is the common problem.
and pvc's or pac's?
they can also be commonly seen without any serious problem.
no sudden cardiac death for me?
haha wise answer
i have to thank you
and wish you a nice day :)
