What is Bigemeny and Trigemeny?
Hi,
I am trying to get educated so please pardon me if this is a stupid question, but I cant seem to find these terms to find out what they are.
Thanks! Sheila

Bigimeny refers to a pattern of ectopic (extra) beats every other beat
Trigimeny refers to a pattern of ectopic beats every third beat.
Quadrigeminy referes to a pattern of ectopic beats every fourth beat.
Couplet is two consecutive ectopic beats.
Triplet is three consecutive ectopic beats.

Hope that helps  : )

Have a great day!

Now I know what Ive been having. I, too, have been wondering what those terms are. When mine are at their worst, I probably have a mix of ALL of them! Anybody else like that??
