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.

You should review these findings with the doctor who ordered your holter monitor. ...Read more
