Hi shashi126,

I'm assuming you would like me to interpret these results.  To fully do so, I would needs to see your actual Holter results.  That being said, I will give you my thoughts based on what you have written.

The lowest heart rate detected was 48.  This is likely to be normal as many people have low heart rates at baseline or their heart rate is lower when they are sleeping.  The highest heart rate detected was 108.  You have frequent PVCs (premature ventricular contractions).  In simple terms, this is a type of "skipped beat".  Some patients feel them.  Others don't.  They are incredibly common in healthy patients, but your doctor would have to determine the significance of them in you.  

You did not have any runs of a dangerous heart rhythm (VT) and no long runs of a slow heart rhythm (BRDY arrhythmia).  There was no sign of decrease blood flow to the heart (no sig ST segment shift).  As for the pauses noted, again I would have to actual see the Holter to interpret that as well. The rest is a lot of electrophysiology jargon.  

I would discuss the results of the Holter with your cardiologist or PCP as again he/she has your history and other important data.  I don't see anything acutely concerning.

Hope this helps!
