Can you have PACs and PVCs together?

When someone presents with bothersome PACs and PVCs, an echocardiogram or ultrasound of the heart is frequently done to make sure an underlying heart condition isn’t present. The rare time that PACs cause a problem is when they are so frequent in number that they risk triggering other rhythm problems.

Are PACs and PVCs palpitations?

Patients with PACs often do not experience symptoms and are diagnosed incidentally. Those who do experience symptoms often complain of a skipped heartbeat or extra beat, also known as palpitations.

How do you stop PVCs and PACs?


  1. Lifestyle changes. Eliminating common PVC triggers — such as caffeine or tobacco — may reduce the number of extra beats and lessen symptoms.
  2. Medications. Blood pressure medications may be prescribed to reduce the premature contractions.
  3. Radiofrequency catheter ablation.
