Heart & Cardiology/PVC's
I get pvc's quite often. usually 20 or so a day. i have a normal echo and ekg taking toprolol xl for it. i guess my question is: does timing have anything to do with getting PVC/PAC's? If you're getting them once a minute, is that bad? when is it emergency room worthy with a normal echo?
Patients with NEW palpitations should be checked because that may indicate something serious may have happened to their heart. Since you have normal heart function you don't have to worry.
In general, you should try to eliminate caffeine, tobacco and alcohol usage, as it may reduce the frequency of PVCs:
Hope this helps,
