Premature Contraction Detection (PC)
Extra, abnormal heartbeats generated in abnormal locations of your heart, either in the atria (PAC) or in the ventricles (PVC) or the cardiac conduction nodes (PNC). These extra beats disrupt your regular heart rhythm, sometimes causing palpitations (e.g. skipped beats) in your chest. It may occur singularly or repetitively with various incidence. If not stress-related, they are a sensitive marker for a multitude of cardiac disorders, elevated ischemic stroke risk with PC.
