Cat. 10 – Recurring Supraventricular Extrasystoles (SVES) detected
Coala has indicated the occurrence of more than 5 SVES (extra strokes) in the analysis.
Supraventricular Extrasystoles (SVES), also known as Premature Atrial Complexes (PACs), are one of the most common abnormalities that is found in ECGs. Most people have SVES in some form. The reason for temporary SVES may be stress, sleep deprivation, alcohol (usually several hours after alcohol intake). Recurring SVES can also be a sign of a stress of the heart caused by the valve (e.g. leakage or congestion). Through-hearted cardiac infections may also cause extra stroke / SVES to recur in repeated infections.
A SVES is an extra stroke, a extrasystole or premature electrical impulse in the heart, generated above the level of the ventricle. This can be either a premature atrial contraction or a premature impulse from the atrioventricular node. SVES should be viewed in contrast to a premature ventricular contraction which has a ventricular origin and the associated QRS change. Instead of the electrical impulse beginning in the sinoatrial (SA) node and propagating to the atrioventricular (AV) node, the signal is conducted both to the ventricle and back to the SA node where the signal began.
Next time you are in contact with your healthcare provider inform them about your SVES. If the results occur more frequently over time, make sure to contact your healthcare provider.
