I have a 20 year old daughter who recently was diagnoised with ventricular bigeminy. (She had her wisdom teeth extracted and the oral surgeon encounterd irregular beats during procedure) Our PCP requested a eco sonogram of her heart and a 24 hour heart monitor device. Her her functions AOK, but the montior detected over 800 irregular beats of mostly bigeminy (and some trigeminy). I can remember her as young as 4 or 5 years old asking me if I could "See her heart beating or feel her heart beathing". Could it be possible that she has had this 'bigeminy' condition all her life. She is scheduled to see a cardiologist in 10 days. How concerned should I be about this condition?
