So I recently got a Holter due to intermittent palpitations and when I talked to the doc he said it looked a little tachy but fine. He said he didn't even see any PVCs. I got the report back and was curious why he didn't mention anything else. I'm sure he's seen thousands of Holter results, so I'm not too concerned if he's not, but just out of curiousity could the report's results (mostly the ectopic beats) be entirely caused by artifact?
Average HR 69 bpm. Total of 121212 QRS complexes detected over 24 hours.
Total ventricular ectopics 5698 (4.70% of all beats): 3009 isolated, 747 pairs, 5 bigeminy cycles, 1 trigeminy cycle, and 335 runs comprised of 1176 VE beats (longest run was supposedly 12 beats at 126 bpm)
Total supraventricular ectopics 2345 (1.93% of all beats): 1767 isolated, 193 pairs, 44 runs comprised of 192 SVE beats (longest run was 32 beats at 125 bpm)
Pauses >2.5 sec: 44 pauses (longest was supposedly 4.5 sec)...I suspect these were due to low voltage
