Heart problems ventricular bigeminy?

Usually benign. Premature or "skipped" beats frome the bottom chambers of the heart are common; they sometimes occur in fixed patterns. When every other beat is a premature beat, it's called ventricular bigeminy. When every 3rd beat is premature, it's called ventricular trigeminy, and so on. Bottom line: with a normal heart, these patterns are completely benign and don't need treatment unless very troubling.
