Right Bundle Branch Block

The electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormality of right bundle branch block (RBBB) is commonly associated with PE and heart conditions such as myocarditis, hypertension and ischaemis or congenital heart disease. Only one study examined its use in diagnosing PE post SCI (Frisbie & Sharma, 2009); however, its use in able-bodied individuals indicates there is a high PE specificity (Nielsen et al 1989; Punukollu et al. 2005).
