Avatar m tn There are occasional premature atrial contractions. There is a single episode of what appears to be a nonsustained atrial tachycardia with a rate of about 100 beats per minute which was somewhat irregular lasting less than 2 seconds. it spontaneously terminated to a regular sinus rhythm. There is a second episode of tachycardia with a rate of 165 to 170 bpm where there is excessive motion artifact. Atrial activity is not clear.
Avatar f tn There are a variety of reasons for the symptoms you are experiencing including premature atrial or ventricular contractions or an SVT (supraventricular tachycardia) which includes a number of different types (atrial flutter, atiral fibrillation, AVNRT, atrial tachycardia, junctional tachycardia). The first step is to identify what is going on which is often done initially by a standard 12-lead EKG and possibly a holter monitor.
Avatar n tn I think this means that it was noticed that your have Premature atrial contractions. The top two smaller chambers of your heart are prematurely contracting. I assume this has been observed to occur 3 times before your lower large chambers contract. PACs are not A-Fib, you have a P wave. So, to explain it a bit more. You have 2 small chambers at the top of your heart which contract and fill the lower two large chambers. They then relax, and the lower chambers contract.
Avatar f tn These can come from the atrium - pacs or premature atrial contractions, or from the ventricals - known as pvcs or premature ventricular contractions. The beat from here comes fractionally earlier than the ones from the hearts usual pacemaker cells, and as such the heart fills with a little extra blood which needs a slightly bigger heartbeat to push it through. This is the thump or flip-flop sensation that people feel as a palpitation.
Avatar m tn Premature atrial contractions (PACs), also known as atrial premature complexes (APC) or atrial premature beats (APB), are a common cardiac arrhythmia characterized by premature heartbeats originating in the atria. While the sinoatrial node typically regulates the heartbeat during normal sinus rhythm, PACs occur when another region of the atria depolarizes before the sinoatrial node and thus triggers a premature heartbeat.
Avatar f tn The abnormal heart rhythms that can arise due to magnesium deficiency include premature atrial contractions, premature ventricular contractions, multifocal atrial tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, and even ventricular tachycardia, fibrillation, and Torsade de Pointes (all potentially fatal). Magnesium is important! Magnesium supplementation is therefore necessary for just about everybody to maintain normal tissue levels.
Avatar f tn I have to go to the Doctor's on Tuesday.
Avatar n tn VE also know as pvcs premature ventricular contractions and SVE also known as pacs premature atrial contractions.
Avatar m tn almost like a trick question i think. If you are having premature atrial contractions its almost like what came first the chicken or the egg....my personal feeling is that it would be possible if combined with a fib and it is slipping in between the episodes....thats my best guess...are you and your colleague sitting in a "rig" right now? I personally think the best person that really is into the total mechanics of the heart to answer this one is Itood....are you reading this Itdood?
Avatar n tn PACs or premature atrial contractions are extra beats, premature beats, originating from the upper chambers of your heart. Everyone one has them sometimes at varying frequencies and a minority of people have symptoms with them. Some people are very symptomatic. PACs are not associated with an increased risk of heart attack or stroke. Unless they are very frequent and the anesthesiologist is worried about them, they should not affect your surgery.
Avatar n tn tired, fatigue, light headed, chest pain, and black out for 4 seconds. Went to heart physicians the summary was Ectopic Atrial Rhythm, Premature Atrial Contractions. Mediacl records also said unconfirmed analysis. I did my research on the stated above and usually says no symptoms beside feeling the flutter and skips of the heart. Why do I have these sypmtoms? I am 25. Female.
Avatar n tn Is it possible your daughter has premature atrial contractions and not atrial fibrillation? I am not a doctor but I have not heard of afib described that way and atrial contractions are not a danger where afib could be due to possible blood clots. Does your daughter have an unusually high heart rate keeping in mind children's heart rates tend to be more elevated than adults. An average heart rate for a baby in their first year can be anywhere between 100-160 from what I have read.
Avatar m tn hes so informed about this stuff) but PVCs are Premature VENTRICLE Contractions, and PACs, Premature Atrial Contractions..in other words, skipped, or extra beats, in the bottom (Ventricle) or top (atrial) of your heart. Electrical system of the heart a bit wacky. But my cardiologist tells me PVCs and PACs are totally harmless---and I have thousands a day some days. Harmless, in an otherwise healthy heart that is. Ive been through every cardiac test there is...
450617 tn?1205543861 You have to remember that her body is not done growing inside or outside and that is why alot of occurances correct themselves. Premature contractions are just that...her heart is just beating a little early and it could be caused by something so simple as a virus, cold, flu anything. Lots and lots of healthy humans have this and the chances of her having a pacemaker because of it...well you'll probably win the lottery before than happens. Don't read more into it than what there is..
