Does alpha thalassemia cause pvcs?

Does alpha thalassemia cause pvcs?

Probably not: Alpha thalassemia probably doesn't cause pvc's (premature ventricular beats, a type of extra heartbeat). However, some thalassemia patients have magnesium deficiency, which can make pvc's more likely to occur. Patients who get transfusions off and on may be drinking lots of coffee, using caffeine or phenols in coffee to decrease iron absorption, to hold off iron overload. Caffeine can cause pvc's. ...Read more

You haven't shared the exact numbers, but the smart money is on iron deficiency, with thal and a few others needing to be ruled out. Even if you have heavy periods / recent pregnancy, you need a competent workup. Demand good care. ...Read more

Possible, not likely: If the PVC comes at just exactly the right time (or really at the wrong time), it can cause v-tach. It's called the r on t phenomenon. If the ventricular electrical impulse occurs during the recovery phase of the preceding beat, ventricular tachycardia can occur. ...Read more

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.

What causes PVC couplets? Why do they make you feel so bad?

PVC couplets: The most common causes can be narrowed down based on a normal or abnormal heart structure (should be reported on your echocardiogram).

What would cause the left side of my face to be constantly swollen. Its very noticeable and never goes away? I have a history of pvcs.

ENT evaluation: I doubt that pvc's are to blame for your swelling. I could be related to underlying sinus congestion. I would start with an ENT physician for an evaluation. The problem would be less likely due to your heart or blockages in the veins that drain your face as you would be having much more severe symptoms. ...Read more
