You had AWMI which in self is critical heart attack. At present you have rhythm

Thanks for the query

I have seen many patients with ventricular ectopics doing very well.
PPI i am assuming is proton pump inhibitor which u can ignore as it doesnt add to your health
EPS in medical term is Extra pyrimidal symptoms which does not co relate to your present condition. Please expand it for me so that i can help u better

Have a healthy living
