When the cells fill with more calcium ions than they can handle, it gets swapped out for sodium ions via a channel called ncx. The sodium causes the cell to trigger in a process called a delayed afterdepolarization (dad). Calcium channel blockers can often help this as can a skilled electrophysiologist. ...Read more

My pvcs only happen when my heart rate is over 100 what would cause that?
