During April 19-25, in addition to MI, nine other serious adverse events were reported: one case of respiratory distress, one case of coronary artery disease, one case of angina, one case of persistent fatigue, one case of premature ventricular contractions, and four cases of headache (Table 2).
He reported on 26 patients with stable New York Heart Association functional class II or III congestive heart failure (CHF) and at least 200 premature ventricular contractions per 24 hours at baseline.
Two or three weeks following the patient's admission, he suffered increasing episodes of premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) and bradycardia (a slow heart rate).
For the past 15 years I've known that I have a mild mitral valve prolapse (MVP), with premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) that I can feel.
Excessive use can cause premature ventricular contractions (Greden, 1974; Greden, Victor, Fontaine, & Lubetsy, 1980).
sup][19] found that responder status predicted single premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) and PVC runs but did not predict VT/VF episodes.
