Abnormal Heart Rhythms (Definition)

Abnormal heart rhythm is a condition in which a person has an abnormal heartbeat pattern, as detected by an EKG (electrocardiogram) of the heart. Some abnormal rhythms run in families (hereditary abnormal rhythms). Some abnormal rhythms are not dangerous, while others can cause ...Read more

If a pac/pvc is caused by sinus arrhythmia breathing out is it benign?

If a pac/pvc is caused by sinus arrhythmia breathing out is it benign?

Yes: Whether the very common "sinus arrhythmia" really causes pac's / pvc's is something you'll want to discuss with your physician but if he/she isn't concerned, I'm not either. More than 5 per minute, or in runs, is worrisome. You may try limiting coffee intake, or just getting comfortable with hearts doing flip-flops from time to time. Glad you're taking a proactive approach. ...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

My friend has arrhythmia (PVC) and has smoked cocaine - I have been advised in the past not to give him metoprolol because this can make it worse. Is this the generally accepted medical view?

Keep having many pvcs on EKG but no arrhythmia. I'm on toprol (metoprolol). Why is this?

PVCs are Arrhythmia: The likely answer is that your doctors are attempting to keep down the number of pvcs you're having. The level of success with such strategies varies from person to person. Our understanding of pvcs continues to evolve, but in very high numbers, they can lead to heart dysfunction and require specific interventions. An electrophysiologist may be able to "ablate" the pvcs and get you off meds. ...Read more

Sudden death from arrhythmia a risk to healthy individuals as well as those w/CAD and/or prior MIs? Correlation between PVCs & sudden death risk?

Sudden death from arrhythmia a risk to healthy individuals as well as those w/CAD and/or prior MIs?  Correlation between PVCs & sudden death risk?

PVCs: PVCs signal risk in those with known coronary artery and or heart muscle disease. Otherwise normal patients who happen to have PVCs do not seem to have an increased risk of an event signalled by the PVCs. ...Read more

Do all palpitations show up on a ekg? Besides pvcs and pacs are normal palpitations an arrhythmia?

Do all palpitations show up on a ekg? Besides pvcs and pacs are normal palpitations an arrhythmia?

Bumps In The Night: An EKG takes only one minute so you're "lucky" (I guess) to find any. If the doctor is really concerned he'll put you on a constant monitor (that you carry around with you) for from 2 to 14 or so days.He'll also ask you to keep a record of any symptoms you feel during that time. Ordinarily it's not worrisome to have a few PVCs or PACs a day unless you have bad symptoms or they fit certain patterns ...Read more

My daughter is 9 and recently diagnosed with arrhythmia and pvc's. When she is lying down I can see the beats in her stomach. Is that normal?

My daughter is 9 and recently diagnosed with arrhythmia and pvc's. When she is lying down I can see the beats in her stomach. Is that normal?

Abdominal pulsations: I don't know how thin your daughter is, but it is very common for children with thin frames to be able to see an abdominal pulsation when they are lying down. However, since your daughter has additional cardiac concerns, I would consult with her specialist to make sure ...Read more

Have sinus tachycardia/pvcs/sinus arrhythmia/palpitations. 23 years old. Normal ecg/echo/blood tests. What are my chances for cardiac arrest?

Have sinus tachycardia/pvcs/sinus arrhythmia/palpitations. 23 years old. Normal ecg/echo/blood tests. What are my chances for cardiac arrest?

Understand the terms: At 25, possibility of cardiac arrest is remote even with family history. SINUS TACHYCARDIA is a rapid, otherwise normal beat. SINUS ARRYTHMIA refers to the normal variation in pulse rate with the breathing cycle seen in young athletes. PVCs are extra beats generated in lower chamber for many reasons, rarely serious. PALPITATIONs are literally the awareness of your heartbeat caused by any of these. ...Read more

Would echo,ekg,stress test,xray,bloodwork rule out any arrhythmia problem such as premature ventricular contraction and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation?

No: Occasional PVCs are normal. Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation by definition is only present some of the time and the tests you list could easily miss this if done while the heart is in normal rhythm. Diagnosis of intermittent arrhythmias can be difficult and frequently requires consultation with a cardiologist subspecialized in electrophysiology, Holter monitor test is frequently used. ...Read more

I drank canary seeds milk can this make my thyroid over react also my last test was .012 is this to high to cause me arrhythmia a/f ?

Not likely. : This is another example of a snake oil remedy which has no evidence whatsoever of safety or efficacy. Do not put anything in your body which has not been tested in double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trials. Additional tests are needed to evaluate thyroid function; see your doctor. ...Read more

Are there any other heart tests other than echo/ekg/holter/thyroid/adrenal tests to determine cause of tachy/pvcs? Should i ask for stress test?

Are there any other heart tests other than echo/ekg/holter/thyroid/adrenal tests to determine cause of tachy/pvcs? Should i ask for stress test?

Palpitations: There are many causes that can't be identified with a test like caffeine, tobacco and stress just to name a few. For some, there is no identifiable cause of pvc's. A stress test would provide a more thorough evaluation but typically that doesn't illicit the cause. ...Read more

Can omeprazole cause pvcs or heart arythmia?

Can omeprazole cause pvcs or heart arythmia?

Rarely: In rare circumstances, particularly when the Omeprazole has been taken for a long time, low magnesium levels in the blood can result, which can cause heart palpitations. Although this is an extremely rare occurrence, if you feel it may apply to you, i would recommend stopping the Omeprazole immediately and seeing your dr., who may want to draw a magnesium level, if the circumstances warrant it. ...Read more
