For a lay person various degrees of heart block or AV block may signifies degenerative changes in electrical conduction system of heart.For advanced degrees of block there is risk of a systole and sudden death and generally a pacemaker is indicated.
Complete heart block is also called complete AV block or third-degree AV block. It means that the heart’s electrical signal can’t pass normally from the upper to the lower chambers. As a result, the ventricles are stimulated by a back-up but slower pacemaker resulting in a slow pulse rate.
DEGENERATIVE CONDUCTION SYSTEM DISEASES LIKE ADVANCED HEART BLOCKS CANNOT BE TREATED WITH MEDICINES AND YOU SHOULD CONSULT YOUR ELECTROPHYSIOLOGIST FOR GUIDANCE ABOUT PACING THERAPY AS IT MAY LEAD TO SUDDEN DEATH
