Paired ventricular extrasystoles in a young patient detected during the three-day monitoring by means of Mawi biosensor patch

Ventricular extrasystole is a premature excitation of the heart that occurs under the influence of impulses coming from different parts of the cardiac conduction system. Ventricular extrasystoles are more significant than supraventricular ones, they can be followed by the disturbance of hemodynamics owing to the fact that ventricles do not have time to be filled with blood and the contraction occurs without ejection of blood in a bloodstream. This can adversely affect both the heart muscle and blood circulation in general. Such patients require a more detailed examination in order to determine the genesis of extrasystoles, especially in patients with paired ventricular extrasystoles. This condition is sometimes not of organic origin, but can be caused, for example, by an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system or neurosis especially in young people.

A paired ventricular extrasystole in a young 44-year-old patient is shown in Fig. recorded during a 3-day ECG monitoring by means of MAWI BIOSENSOR PATCH on the third day of the observation. Although the total number of ventricular extrasystoles for the entire observation period was with in the acceptable age limit and numbered 12 extrasystoles, 10 of which were right ventricular isolated extrasystoles.
