What Kinds Of Pvcs Are Life Threating

What causes multifocal pvcs, what is the treatment for multifocal pvcs, and how dangerous are they?
PVCs: For the most part, they're benign. They're premature ventricular contractions that arise from different sites in the ventricle. There's not overwhelming evidence that in healthy people with asymptomatic pvcs that they're at risk for anything bad happening, and most docs wouldn't treat people with asymptomatic pvcs. But if you have other heart problems, you should consult with your cardiologist. ...Read more
Usually not: Atenolol, a beta blocker, usually does not cause PVCs - premature ventricular contractions. In fact this medicine is often used to treat this condition.

I have multifocal pvcs. I have read these a considered dangerous. If you havr aa structural normal heart is this still true? What treatment for these?
Ablation 4 wks ago, MRI normal EF 70% started back w/pvcs again. On metropolol 25 a day. What else for treatment?
Sometimes the PVC: focus is only bruised rather than destroyed with complex ventricular ablations and so the arrhythmia recurs after a short period of time. There are many options but its best to discuss these with your electrophysiologist and see if a repeat procedure would be beneficial instead of or along with different drug therapy. ...Read more

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
Is premature ventricular contraction a health risk and what are the precautions needed by a client having this kind of dysrhythmia?
What kind of arrhythmia would cause your heart to flutter, dizzy, like no beats in between and scared. It felt like a lot if pvcs in a row.
Several....: There are several arrhythmias that can cause these symptoms including atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, PVCs that can occur as "runs" where there are several in a row. Ventricular arrhythmias, besides PVCs, would likely cause more symptoms, like passing out. The best way to figure out what is wrong is to have a Holter monitor placed for at least a few days so see your doctor ASAP or go to ER! ...Read more
Best medication in the market to stop pvcs ? They are ruining my life despite all my tests and labs being normal they are very scary
My pvcs which ruined my life have suddenly gone asymptomatic. They are not frequent anymore and i barely feel them. How it can be possible?
It is possible: I am sorry to hear that pvcs ruined your life as they are generally benign. In fact they are often the sign of a healthy heart that responds in real time to neurohormonal input. In any case, people with pvc's either learn to live with them or they just fade away. Sometimes this can happen "suddenly." as in your case. This is certainly nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Anxiety = worrying : about things that may not happen or, if they do, may not hurt you. If 24-hour monitoring of your heart rate & rhythm shows nothing for you to " obsess" about, but you can't stop, see your primary care for referrals to a psychiatrist & psychologist for evaluation & treatment of anxiety disorders. Chronic anxiety alters levels & functions of brain chemicals, so address it now. ...Read more
