What Does Two Different Types Of Pvcs Mean
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
Early beats?: Acronyms are not always standardized on echo reports. However PVC and psvc may stand for premature ventricular (bottom heart chamber) and supraventricular (top heart chamber) contractions; respectively. You may have had 2 and 5 of each, during the echocardiogram recording. Commenting on the significance of this requires more information. See cardiologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My dr just told me that I have rare pvcs but because they don't happen frequently he can't figure out where they are coming from. What does that mean?
I have pvcs. They feel different, like there us a linger pause than normal. How, many seconds between each beat is dangerous?
No one number...: You're likely experiencing "compensatory pauses" equal to 2x the duration of a "normal" heartbeat minus the interval between a normal beat and the pvc. Don't worry. No pause is too long unless you get symptoms suggestive of inadequate blood flow like dizziness or lightheadedness during the pauses. That said, frequent pvcs can result in easy fatigue and that can be a good reason to treat. ...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
