Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
A PVC (premature ventricular contraction) may be perceived as a "skipped beat" or felt as palpitations in the chest
ALTHOUGH PCV are more prevalent in the elderly and in men,Premature ventricular contractions can occur in a healthy person of any age,They frequently occur spontaneously with no known cause,Some possible causes of PVCs include:
-Adrenaline excess,Calcium excess,Cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic or dilated,Certain,medicines such as digoxin, which increases heart contraction,Chemical (electrolyte) problems in the blood,Contact with Carina (trachea/bronchi) when performing medical suctioning stimulates vagus nerve,Drugs such as:Alcoho Cocaine;Heart attack;,Hypercapnia (CO2 poisoning),Hypoxia,Ischemia,Lack of sleep/exhaustion,Magnesium and potassium deficiency,Mitral valve prolapse,Myocardial,contusion,Myocarditis,Sarcoidosis,Smoking,Stress
Theobromine,Thyroid problems,Tricyclic antidepressants,...
BUT as i say it can occur for no reason in healthy man
Although there are many signs and SYMPYOMS associated with PVCs, PVCs may have no symptom at all
Isolated PVCs with benign characteristics require no treatment. In healthy individuals, PVCs can often be resolved by restoring the balance of magnesium, calcium and potassium within the body. The most effective treatment is the elimination of triggers (particularly the cessation of the use of substances such as caffeine, and certain drugs.
