In brief: Pvcs

Pvcs alone carry very little risk unless there is compromised heart function At that point the work up changes to asses quantity and consideration of eliminating the focus with ablation.
Pacs from The atrium are also benign but increased frequency can be a warning for other arrhythmia S such as afib
