Echo: When cardiac mechanical function and structure are normal, the risk of cardiac arrest is low unless there is an associated ischemic or metabolic problem.

Understand the terms: At 23, possibility of cardiac arrest is remote even with family history. SINUS TACHYCARDIA is a rapid, otherwise normal beat. SINUS ARRYTHMIA refers to the normal variation in pulse rate with the breathing cycle seen in young athletes. PVCs are extra beats generated in lower chamber for many reasons, rarely serious. PALPITATIONs are literally the awareness of your heartbeat caused by any of these.

Follow up PVCs: Did you have a Holter or Zio patch? The doctor must have assessed all factors. Get a follow up in 1 year provided asymptomatic.
