In order for you son's heart to function properly all part of it should be able to contract. These contractions work together in order to pump blood to the body. These contractions are brought about by electrical impulses which follows specific paths. In the case of your son, a pathway for these electrical charges has been completely blocked. Thus, such anomaly prevents those affected part from contracting and ultimately causing problems in the function of the heart leading to complications such as cardiac hypertrophy, heart failure or even death. This finding is very alarming and would warrant immediate consult to your physician.
