Answer

Although the risk of right bundle branch block (RBBB) progressing to complete heart block and sudden death is low, patients require workup and consultation with a pediatric cardiologist.

Failure to have the child properly evaluated could result in an unnecessary death and the legal ramifications resulting from such a tragedy.
