Customer Question

My son is in third year medicine, and working hard. He recently checked on his own stethoscope to find that his heart has been missing beats. Is this a dangerous situation or just stress related minor event ? He came Friday evening with the complaint and left back to work sunday night, sayiing the beats are normal then. He is rotating around with other doctors at the hospital assigned to him.

Usually this is benign PVCs

stress, dehydration, caffeine can all do this
