Beating in a rhythm
Making prominent LUB DUB sounds
But obstruction in the conduction system
Resulted in a heart block
First-degree heart block
Electric impulse moves slowly
Slowly then the normal impulses through the AV node
Which is seen in highly trained athletes
Second-degree heart block
Two types are present
Type I heart block and type II heart block
Type I heart block, the less serious one
Where Electrical signals go slower and slower
Until heart skips a beat
Not the one which happens when u see the one you like
Type II heart block
Some of the electrical signals don’t reach ventricles
Beating pattern becomes irregular
The heartbeat becomes slower than normal
Third heart block
The electrical signal doesn’t reach the ventricle from the atria
Heart rate slower than normal
Fainting, chest pain, and dizziness symptoms
Come along too
Here comes another heart block
The Acquired Heart Block
