This might be a weird question. I also wanted to do a heart holter because... I am 37 - I have recently done a stress test (nothing found) EKG (nothing found) and today I went for an Echo (again nothing). I was told I have a good strong heart but when I asked ok then what are these scary episodes I am having? No one can answer or know. It feels like pressure when bend down and then it slips - thus setting off a run of pvs (so I think). Is this dangerous? I went to the ER as well about a week after because I was getting such horrible anxiety. Did an ekg and blood work (also chest xray) guess what nothing. Is there anything to fix this or explain this better to doctors? Is there ANYONE who has had this and can speak to it. You would be saving my sanity.
PS If you private message me a CLEAR and close up shot of the strip (with about 3-4 “cycles”) worth of waveforms in it.. preferably taken from the most straight/centered angle possible.. I’ll give an opinion.
As long as you remember that no one on the internet, myself included, is “qualified” to read an EKG like your doctor is.
You should always take opinions from strangers on your computer with a grain of salt.
They would not look the same. It’s not too unusual for SVE and VE’s to get swapped around on a monitor.
The counting of Holter Monitor ectopics is actually usually done by a nurse or a tech, not a cardiologist. The cardiologist will often just look at a few examples and “spot check” it.
That said it’s not something you necessarily need to sweat too much. This isn’t a HUGE mistake, if it’s a mistake at all. Prognosis/Treatment is about the same.
