This audiobook is also a section found in the title: Common Murmurs, Arrhythmias and Myopathies of the Heart, with this title being made available separately, for listeners interested specifically in the PVC/PAC (heart skips) subject.
Skipped heartbeats occur in most, if not 100% of the general population, at some point during their lives. Some medical sources state that about half of us experience them on a relatively frequent basis.
For some people however, these heart palpitations called "Premature Ventricular Contractions" and "Premature Atrial Contractions" (PVCs and PACs), occur at a frequency or forcefulness, that can be concerning to them and that can result in chronic anxiety and/or panic attacks. In most cases these palpitations are benign but the unpleasant feeling they may cause can at times override any reassurance one might receive by a doctor, that their heart is otherwise healthy and normal.
It is my intention, through the chapters of this audiobook, to inform listeners who experience these common but most-often benign palpitations, with facts, that can help them to better-cope with the concerning symptoms they may experience with these strange heartbeats.
