PVC or PAC

Posted By Janice on April 16, 1999 at 15:15:16
I know that you can't diagnose here, but maybe you can help. I've finally caught a palpitation on the continuous heart monitor I was given. When I sent the report, the palpitation sounded like a short beat or missed beat, followed by two quick beats. Can you tell me if this is a PAC or PVC?
I had an echocardiogram about two years ago that showed a slight heart murmur. At the time, I was having the palps infrequently. Now they are occurring more frequently. Should I be worried?
