My Holter monitor reports from 2012 diagnosed me with infrequent low-grade atrial and ventricular ectopy. Asymptomatic, no significant pauses. First of all, I was completely symptomatic. The longest pause 1.7 seconds. I had 2,571 VPB’s and 148 APBs. My 2011 ultrasound indicated insignificant stenosis or regurgitation for the mitral, aortic, tricuspid and pulmonic valves. They did not mention this, but the LVO T diameter is a little below the range.
I need to get an updated ultrasound of my heart for comparison. I have been told that everything is normal. Is this normal? Does anyone else have VPB’s? Mine works out to 54 VPBs per hour and from what I read more than 60 per hour is considered frequent.
