Premature Ventricular Ectopics
PVCs and MI: Premature ventricular contractions mean that there is irritability in the heart muscle and normal heart rhythm which starts from high up in the atria is inturrupted in some beats and those beats are originating in the ventricle.Bot it does not mean that it is directly due to mi.But you can get pvcs with mi.Occasional pvcs are not serious but if it comes from many foci and in runs it can be seriou. ...Read more

Not enough info: What distinguishes the significance of a rhythm disturbance is what the condition of the heart is, not the rhythm per se. Your mother needs an evaluation which includes information about how strong her heart is and whether she has evidence of blocked arteries.

I had one pair of ventricular ectopic beats on my holter monitor. Their were also 37 isolated. Is this normal? Echo & stress test were fine.
Probably 'begnin': The electrical system of the heart sends regular pulses to the heart muscle to signal it to contract. Many things can disturb this natural rhythm eg electrolyte abnormalities (low potassium or magnesium), excessive stimulants eg caffeine, alcohol, nasal decongestants, certain asociated conditions such as mvp (mitral valve prolapse), anxiety, hormonal fluctuations, etc. ...Read more
