In general no: In general pacs or premature atrial contractions are benign - not harmful. They may be caused by excessive stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine, even sugar. Anxiety can also cause this - if your physician has thoroughly evaluated this and ruled out other causes this may be the issue. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: PACs are simply isolated early extra beats that originate from the upper chambers of the heart (above the bundle of his). Some make it through to the ventricle, some are blocked. When they occur consecutively causing the ventricle to contract faster then that situation is said to be PSVT. Some self terminate- some need meds or electrical cardioversion and ablation. They can be seen separately. ...Read more

Would echo,ekg,stress test,xray,bloodwork rule out any arrhythmia problem such as premature ventricular contraction and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation?
No: Occasional PVCs are normal. Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation by definition is only present some of the time and the tests you list could easily miss this if done while the heart is in normal rhythm. Diagnosis of intermittent arrhythmias can be difficult and frequently requires consultation with a cardiologist subspecialized in electrophysiology, Holter monitor test is frequently used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What are the differences between pre-atrial contractions, pre-ventricular contractions, and ectoptic beats?
Extrasystoles: There are basically two types of extra beats. Ventricular extra beats and supraventricular extra beats are the two types. They are abbreviated pvcs and apcs for premature ventricular contractions and atrial premature contractions. They are the commonest arrhythmias and are usually benign though they often cause symptoms of annoyance. ...Read more
