I had 7 late beats on my holter monitor during sleep. Are late beats the same as a sinus pause or arrest? Are late beats dangerous?

Unclear: I'm not sure what you mean by "late beats". It's possible this refers sinus pauses. What matters is the possible causes, like medications, and how "late" the beats, as in two seconds versus more than 3 seconds. You should review these findings with the doctor who ordered your holter monitor. ...Read more

How do you FEEL?: If you're an athlete and not having spells where you pass out, this is fine and you should be proud of it. If you have other evidence of heart pathology, it's your physician's decision whether to have you worked up for some obscure illness.

Symptoms can be improved with medication but meds are only used for symptom control because the rhythm is not dangerous. ...Read more
