What are VE's and SVEs?

My husband wore a Holter monitor for two days and these abbreviations were in the report.  They are not something I can look up in a medical dictionary.

VE also know as pvcs premature ventricular contractions and SVE also known as pacs premature atrial contractions. Almost everyone with have some of one or the other or both on a 24 hour monitor

VE = ventricular ectopics (beats originating from the hearts main chambers)
SVE = supraventricular ectopics (beats originating from upper chambers, except sinus node)

Hope this helps.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!   Your knowledge and time spent sharing it is much appreciated.  We are very new to this.
You are most welcome.

If your husband had a normal echocardiogram and has no heart disease then these findings are most likely benign.
