PVC: Can occur in otherwise normal hearts. Lvh would be seen on echocardiogram.

18?: Ay such a young age why are you getting multiple ekgs? You didn't mention any symptoms. That said, what you have describe sounds quite benign. Cut out excessive caffeine and see what happens. Good luck.

It may be due to poor EKG leads placement. Get a MCG instead. Info@premierheart.com
