What is the treatment of.Pvcs in both venyricles?

What is the treatment of.Pvcs in both venyricles?

Most require nothing: It is unclear by your statement what you mean by both ventricles, ie multifocal? In any event, assuming they are a symptomatic and there is no other evidence of heart disease like cardiomyopathy or other conditions like hyperthyroidism, then treatment is not required. There are medical treatments such as calcium blockers, beta blockers and more potent antiarrhthmics if necessary. ...Read more

Multiform pvcs.....All tests normal. Whatis the treatment?

Depends: If you have had tests done to show no coronary artery disease(stress test), and no heart valve or heart muscle disease (such as an echocardiogram ), frequently no treatment for multifocal pvc's is necessary.If, however, you have significant symptoms, such as marked palpitations or fainting, medications such as beta blockers can be used.Your doctor can decide this for you. ...Read more

What causes multifocal pvcs, what is the treatment for multifocal pvcs, and how dangerous are they?

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

Can atenolol cause PVCS?I had PVC'S since day one of my daily 25mg treatment.

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. However, any medicine can have side effects, so if you feel this medicine is causing problems I suggest you contact the doctor who prescribed it. ...Read more

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

Thanks

Follow your MD lead: You need to be patient and stick to the treatment offered by your cardiologist or electro physiologist and discuss your options and doubts with them. Do NOT over read or look for answers on the internet. This can be harmful when the arrhythmia, in general, is not. ...Read more

30 day event monitor shows completely normal except I have moderate amount of pvcs and pacs. Echo norm. And cta norm. Beta blockers for treatment?

30 day event monitor shows completely normal except I have moderate amount of pvcs and pacs. Echo norm.  And cta norm. Beta blockers for treatment?

PossiblyCheckResults: Event only shows rhythm variations, echo nl good, but normal a very wide range. Suggest always get data & video copies, read yourself & save. Rhythm a combination of heart & brain spilt-second control. Cta norm: artery ds typically begins at ~age 7yrs but calcification, though present, typically not enough to be visible on cta until mid-30-40s. Suggest optimize NMR particle test, hba1c & BP 1st. ...Read more

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.?

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 more

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.

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

Beta blockers: So if your doctors have diagnosed you w/pvcs and haven't found any fixable cause, ask them about medication to minimize your pvcs. Beta blockers are useful but may lower your blood pressure so be careful. Good luck! ...Read more

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?

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

My PVC'S are benign but they are killing me only get like 6 a day that I feel. I don't know what to do with my life!!Anxiety killing me. ?

My PVC'S are benign but they are killing me  only get like 6 a day that I feel. I don't know what to do with my life!!Anxiety killing me. ?

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
