Sample text

Thus, both tracings display a block of two of the three pathways, or fascicles, for impulse conduction to the ventricles, and both fall into the category of what some people call bifascicular block. Notice, however, that both tracings have a normal PR interval, which indicates that the impulse is getting down the remaining functioning fascicle on time. Left BBB alone is also considered to be an example of bifascicular block because both the anterior and posterior left fascicles are blocked. As you have undoubtedly surmised by now, the term trifascicular block indicates either partial or complete block in all three major fascicles.

So, of course, we can foresee that there might be occasions when, for whatever reason, one or the other (or both) of these two fascicles will fail to work properly. Failure may include delays in repolarization, so that the impulse finds the fascicle still refractory; conduction of impulses more slowly than usual; or complete inability to conduct an impulse. When either the anterosuperior or posteroinferior fascicle fails, we say that it is “blocked,” and we call the failure hemiblock. In everyday parlance, we shorten the names to just left anterior hemiblock (LAH) and left posterior hemiblock (LPH).

3). Exactly how extreme the LAD is depends upon what the patient’s normal axis was before developing the hemiblock. Although vector 3 is dramatically shifted to the left, it should be readily apparent that septal depolarization is still occurring normally because the posterior fascicle is still intact, and it is the posterior fascicle that predominantly supplies the septum with Purkinje fibers. 3, although lead III is now predominantly negative, there is still a small R wave present, reflecting normal septal depolarization.
