Heart rate: Rest HR is normal range.The PVC's need to be further discussed and possibly investigated

Probably ok: Everything is probably fine because your heart rate responds appropriately with activity. however a resting heart rate of 38 is still very low I would recommend that you see a cardiologist to make sure there are no underlying problems
