Can 2 pvcs in a row cause vtach?

Possible, not likely: If the PVC comes at just exactly the right time (or really at the wrong time), it can cause v-tach. It's called the r on t phenomenon. If the ventricular electrical impulse occurs during the recovery phase of the preceding beat, ventricular tachycardia can occur. ...Read more

Extra Heart Beats: According to your description it seems thatyou are definately having extra heart beats but I am not sure how can you tell that these are PVC's or PAC's with short burst of SVT since Vtach usually does not have HR of 200 BPM.

Take seriously: i recommend a consultation with a cardiac electro physiologist. Recent studies have correlated the amount of PVCs a person has over a 24 hour period with the development of a weakening of the heart muscle (CHF). Therefore, a thorough evaluation and frequent follow up needs to be undertaken with consideration for medications that suppress PVCs while also being useful for preventing weak hearts. ...Read more
