Cardiology Questions Answered by Verified Cardiologists.
Hello I'm Dr Chip
Can you tell me what you mean by a small irregularity please?
Sorry I can't do a phone call right now
So how many skipped beats in a minute's time?
I need to know exactly how often the skipped beat occurs please
Can't you see my response?
I'm asking how many times a minute does the skipped beat occur
Three times now I've asked how many skipped beats in a minute there were
Can't you see those responses?
Most likely those are atrial premature contractions and usually they aren't anything dangerous
Sometimes they may be caused by a serum potassium or magnesium or calcium imbalance
So nothing too worrisome now but you need to check this out with your doctor and get and get an EKG and some blood work
Please let me know if you need any more information
