Right Bundle Branch Block
Figure 1: ECG Strip
A right bundle branch block occurs when "activation of the right ventricle is delayed as depolarization has to spread across the septum from the left ventricle." This delayed right ventricular activation gives rise to a slurred S wave and secondary depolarization abnormalities, such as ST depression and T wave inversion.
