dear patient

thanks for your concerns. the most comkon cause of skipped beats are premature atria contractions which are benign. premature ventricular contractions are also possible. usually no treatment is necessary but if they are too frequent or impair activity then a holter monitor may be required to evaluate further

truly yours
