    [SVE Beats]

    Looking over a holter test it has 14 SVE beats with 11 being late and 3 being single PAC's. I've heard about the PAC's and if I understand correctly they're no big deal, but does late just mean the opposite of the premature? (It sounds logical to me, but I didn't want to guess.) Last question - Is sinus tachycardia normal always? My holter has 5 hr 23 min. of tachycardia. The fastest beat was only 154 and only lasted 1 min. 43 sec. (this would have been as close to exercise as I would have got in those 48 hours - it was going up and down stairs quickly getting my kids supper).

    Once you've had a holter, do you have them again? If so, is their a normal time for repeats?

    Dear Amy,

    Do you mean "SVT"? Yes, late is what you thinkn it is. Sinus tachycardia is a normal rhythm, sped up. Atrial or ventricular tachycardia is an irregular beat, sped up. anything over 100 is tachycardia. Medication usually brings it down.

    I've had about 8 Holters, mostly in high school and college. I haven't had one in 10 years. They use them whenever they need to know what the heck is going on when you aren't in front of them. It isn't like an echo where you get one every two years to check on the hypertorphy.

    take care,


    PS are you seeing a specialist?
