I had pvcs on my 48hr heart monitor, but nothing from the atrium. does that mean no atrial fibrillation?

Atrial fib: The monitor did not pick up any evidence of atrial fibrillation during the 48 hour period you wore it. It is still possible that you could have had episodes of atrial fibrillation at other times, but from the information at hand there is no proof of that.
