Are pvcs dangerous I think i'm having some heard some conflicting things?

I get doublet PVC is this dangerous ?

Need more info: Many people get occasional PVCs.

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

Are PVC couplets common in healthy population and are they dangerous in themselves?

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
