Customer:

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

These PVC's can be due to many reasons and one main cause is ischemic heart disease which you are having, so in your case most likely cause of these PVC's is ischemic heart disease.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Now there are 5 gradings of PVC's

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Actually 6 grades and 0 being the mild and 5 being the most severe form of PVC's

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

You are in grade 2 which is a mild form.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

in this case we use medicine like beta blockers to control these PVC"s.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Main risk of uncontrolled PVC's is that they cause symptoms of dizziness and can cause run of life threatening arryrhmias.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

So you need to be started on betablockers to control these PVC's.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

You have more questions ? let me know.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

I will try my best to help you out.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

One more thing if you have diagnosed ischemic heart disease, you should also be taking medicine like aspirin, statins, ACEi

You are in grade 2 which is a mild form.




 

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

And in this case you need to be started on beta blockers.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Main risk in these PVC's is symptoms like dizziness and run of life threatening arrythmias.

Customer:

life threatening arrthmias, u mean like my heart my stop

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Yes this means that heart rate can go up so much that heart will not pump adequate blood to the vital organs like brain, kidneys and heart itself.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

You have some more questions in your mind.... Let me know.....

Customer:

Could i have a heart attack or a stroke?

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Yes, it can happen, because when the heart rate increases the oxygen demand of the heart also increases and it may not get enough blood with very high heart rate.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

stroke can also occur as heart is not pumping adequately.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Your questions ? queries ?

Customer:

I recently had a heart rate of 130.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

It needs to be lowered to around 60s

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

to lessen the risk of heart attack and PVC's.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Your questions ?

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Have more questions ? let me know......

Customer:

Should i go to the er?

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Well, if you are having constant feeling of PVC's and dizziness then ER visit is best option.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

As i have mentioned that one major cause of PVCs is ischemic heart disease so this may be worsening and needs an immediate evaluation.

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

Your questions ? queries ?

Dr .Saeed ahmed :

You have more questions ? let me know. I am waiting for your replies.
