Learning Heart Arrhythmias Part 01

Posted by e-Medical PPT Sunday, June 6, 2010
Premature atrial contractions are a type of heart arrhythmia that are extremely common, with many people experiencing premature atrial contractions at some point in their lives. In some cases, the condition is benign, while in other cases, the PACs can indicate that the patient is at risk for a more serious problem, and it may be necessary to take steps to manage the heart rhythm. People with heart conditions who experience premature atrial contractions are a cause for special concern.
Premature atrial contractions occurs when the atria beat before they are supposed to. Many people never even notice that a premature atrial contraction is occurring, although some people feel the contraction as a faint flutter or palpitation, as though the heart has skipped a beat. Cutting down on caffeine often eliminates or greatly reduces the incidence of premature atrial contractions.
