Ecg shows right bundle branch block and rest is normal and echo is also normal. If she doesn’t have chest on walking or activity/ breathless on exertion than no need for further evaluation
Next Steps
Requires further information to calculate the risk and further advice (like age/diabetes/ hypertension or any previous history of heart disease / medication use/ kidney status )
