Cat. 11 – Recurring Ventricular Extrasystoles (VES) detected

Coala has indicated the occurrence of more than 5 VES (extra strokes) in the analysis.

Ventricular Extrasystoles (VES), also known as Premature Ventricular Vomplexes (PVCs), are one of the most common abnormalities that is found in ECGs. Coala indicates this category when more than 5 VES are detected in the recording.

A VES may be perceived as a ”skipped beat” or felt as palpitations in the chest. Individual ventricular extravasations (VES), heartbeat triggered from the heart’s chambers) are commonplace. Most people do not know their extra touches and are not disturbed by them.

Plenty of VES can be a consequence of other underlying heart disease. It is therefore important that a thorough investigation is carried out by the electrical activation system, cardiac muscle function, heart valve and coronary artery.

In a normal heartbeat, the ventricles contract after the atria have helped to fill them by contracting; in this way, the ventricles can pump a maximized amount of blood both to the lungs and to the rest of the body. In a VES, the ventricles contract first and before the atria have optimally filled the ventricles with blood, which means that circulation is inefficient. However, single beat VES abnormal heart rhythms do not usually pose a danger and can be asymptomatic in healthy individuals

Single PVC are common in healthy persons. The prevalence of VES has been estimated to be about 1% to 4% for the general population. Age has been seen to play a major role in the occurrence of PVCs throughout the population. Older individuals are more likely to experience VES and this may be due to its prevalence in individuals with high blood pressure and heart disease.

VES occurs when cells in one of the chambers have built up an impulse and activate faster than the cells that normally give the heart its impulses. The pulse spreads less functionally in the chambers, so that the heart produces a lower blood flow. The lower blood flow is compensated in the next normal stroke through a higher blood flow, which may be felt in the throat or as a dunk in the thorax.

In many VES, blood flow is affected so that all-human symptoms (breathlessness, nausea, dizziness, fainting, cold sweat) may occur. Most often, the root causes of coronary heart disease or severe flap are why a complete investigation is important.

Next time you are in contact with your healthcare provider inform them about your VES. If the results occur more frequently over time, make sure to contact your healthcare provider.
