Skipped Heart Beat
A skipped heartbeat is a palpitation that occurs at an irregular or out-of-pattern rhythm. It happens now and then in healthy individuals, but recurring episodes should be discussed with a nearby Carbon Health. Seek emergency care if your skipped heartbeat is accompanied by chest pains, fever, or disorientation.
- Skipped heartbeats, also known as premature ventricular contractions (PVCs), are a common type of heart arrhythmia that can feel like a flutter or a skipped beat in the chest. In most cases, PVCs are not considered to be serious and do not require treatment. However, if PVCs occur frequently or are accompanied by symptoms such as chest pain, dizziness, or fainting, they may be a sign of an underlying heart condition and should be evaluated by a healthcare provider.
