Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is conduction block between the atria and the ventricles.

Stage 1 is the earliest stage block or mild blockage.

Heart block is a condition that affects the electrical system that controls the heartbeat. Mild types of heart block can cause your heart to beat more slowly than normal or to skip beats.

Can be benign and caused by medications like metoprolol.

Not usually concerning.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
