What is ventricular premature complex?

About


The heart receives signals to beat in a predictable manner but these signals can become disruptive at times making the heart beat irregularly. The ventricular premature complex is of the reason for the irregular beating of the heart.


Most people get ventricular premature complex at some point [1]


- Required medical diagnosis
- Electrocardiogram (ECG) required
- Echocardiogram may be required


Factors that may contribute to the development of the development of ventricular premature complex could be using certain types of medications such as stimulants and asthma medicines, alcohol consumption, caffeine consumption, high blood pressure, increased anxiety, heart disease, congenital heart problem, and hormonal imbalances.


Symptoms:


- Weakness
- Dizziness
- Vertigo
- Loss of consciousness
- Fluttering in chest
- Pounding and jumping in heart
- Skipped or missed heart beats
- Increased awareness of heartbeat


Treatment


Self-care: If the patient does not have any underlying heart problems, then the doctor might recommend the patient to avoid stimulants such as caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol as doing so can decrease the frequency of the symptoms.


Medications: Beta-blockers can suppress premature contractions. The doctor might prescribe calcium channel blockers, or anti-arrhythmic drugs if the frequent ventricular premature complex interferes with the patient's heart condition.


Specialist: Specialist might suggest a procedure called ablation. During this process, radiofrequency waves are used to destroy the damaged heart tissue that is causing extra heartbeats to occur. Contact mfine to get the best treatment for each and every disease.
