If You Have Biventricular Pvcs What Does That Meanand Is It Dangerous
Not usually: We all have pvcs every day. Some people have a lot more. As long as you don't have any symptoms (dizziness, passing out, shortness of breath or chest tightness), you should be fine. If you do have symptoms or you become very concerned about them, have a cardiologist check your heart out. There are some very simple meds that can help. ...Read more
Need more info: Many people get occasional PVCs. If the heart is structurally normal & healthy, these extra beats are not necessarily concerning, but we assess the risk of a sustained tachycardia (e.g., those ventricular beats happening in a series) which could be dangerous. How many PVCs, the number of origin sites & the tendency to happen in a row (e.g., with couplets, triplets or runs) may help determine risk. ...Read more
PVCs are common: PVCs (Premature Ventricular Complexes) are common. Many normal people have a few PVCs. In some people they become more frequent. If there is no evidence of organic heart disease, with normal left ventricular function, and no ischemia (that is, no blockage in the coronary arteries), as shown by a normal EchoCG and a Stress test, PVCs are harmless. Anxiety may increase PVCs in some people. ...Read more
Usually Not: Pvc's are usually not dangerous. Sometimes increased frequency can lead to other heart arrhythmias, but this is less common. If bothersome, sometimes medication can be prescribed, and cutting out caffeine from the diet can be helpful. An ECG through your primary care provider or cardiologist would be appropriate at this time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multiple foci: Multiform pvcs are premature ventricular contractions originating from different parts of the ventricle. Each point-of-origin will have a unique form on an ekg. This can be dangerous if it causes tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. If this is you, you should be under the care of a cardiologist. ...Read more
Uncommon: PVCs (premature ventricular contractions) are beats that originate from the ventricles. An occasional single PVC can certainly be seen in normal hearts. Couplets (two pvcs in a row) r unusual, especially if frequent. They can be seen in a normal hearts. Nonetheless, I would recommend a noninvasive workup (ECG, echo. 24 hour monitor, and stress test) to be sure everything is ok. Good luck. ...Read more
What would cause my pvcs to feel more forceful amd is it dangerous? They feel differnt like theres a long than normal pause
Ii have pvcs frequent, multifocal and form, couplets, and big ad trig. Are pvcs mote common in lv.Or rv? Is one more dangerous than the othee?
Freq, multifocal PVC: Pvcs mainly originate from the rv outflow tract, but some originate from from the lv outflow tract, mitral and tricuspid valve annulus. A major concern is that pvcs may initiate vt, polymorphic VT and ventricular fibrillation. This risk associated with pvcs is usually limited to patients with significant underlying heart disease or at risk of developing heart disease. Need to see a cardiologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Some days I have 5-10 pvc's, somtimes i can go a few days without having them, is this a good sign that my pvc's are not dangerous or anyting to worry?
Yes: Pvc's occur in almost everybody, whether they are felt or not. 5-10 pvc's daily is not unusual and may coincide with caffeine, sleep deprivation, hypertension, male gender, age, or abnormal electrolyte levels (magnesium and potassium especially). Your primary physician should perform detailed history, physical and appropriate testing or referral to rule out rare, but dangerous causes of pvc's). ...Read more
I have pvcs. They feel different, like there us a linger pause than normal. How, many seconds between each beat is dangerous?
My dr has noted that I have 2 diff type of pvcs one in rv the other is not said. Why and where could it be coming from. Just assured not dangerous.?
Let me explain: The upper chambers in the heart are more "irritable" than the main chambers. In other words, they are more likely to produce prematurebeats (pacs). A few examples: which is more common- a-fib (atrial) or v-fib (ventricular)? Which is more common- svt (atrial) or VT (v-tach) (ventricular)? Both pacs and pvcs are usually benign, so it's really not an issue. Ask your doctor also please. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
PVC's: They are still called pvc's. As long as the premature impulse is arising from the ventricular system. It is not unusal to have different appearances. Pvc's are most often benign and of no concern. If you are noticing them you might try limiting caffeine and stress modification. If still bothersome or you have a history of heart disease, see your md as medications can be benificial. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've read that multifocal pvcs are not benign, but me ep says they are.Im scared. What is thevtreatment of multifocal pvcs and are the dangerous?
?Heart ok otherwise: You basically need to know that your heart is structurally normal. Based upon your age and risk factors you may need a stress test to be sure you do not have obstructive coronary artery disease. Generally treatment of pvcs may do more harm than good. Treat if there is progressive weakness of heart muscle from pvcs or if any more arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia is suspected or seen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have pvcs when I am relaxing, exercising and even post exercise. I had a stress test(came out perfectly normal) but i still get pvcs? Dangerous?
Unlikely. Unstress!: In someone of your age it is unlikely to be of clinical importance. Often psychological stress may be a factor. Keep track of the frequency (pvc's per 5 minutes) and see if periods of anxiety, anger, fear, or depression correlate with higher frequency. Learn deep relaxation/meditative skills (see drmiller.Com), stay in good aerobic cardiorespiratory shape, and stop worrying. ...Read more
