Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

After going through the medical details and reports provided by you i would like to tell you that his ECG is showing Atrial fibrillation occasional ectopics which can very well be taken care with the help of simple anticoagulation.

We just need to make sure that there is no valve problem which can be confirmed with the help of echocardiography.

So kindly upload the report of echo also for proper opinion.

Thanks and Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
