Hello. I'm Dr ChipThanks for your question and I'm reviewing it.I'll be back in a moment with and answer or a request for more information
Did the ECG happen to capture one of these irregular beats?
Most likely these are premature atrial contractions and they have nothing to do with your coronary artery blood flow--it's just an electrical abnormality and it doesn't mean you'd have a heart attack or heart damage in the future
Usually there's no specific reason why they occur although sometimes caffeine can bring them on
The holter monitor would only be to capture them but I'm sure what it would show would be these PAC's and they aren't in any way dangerous--just bothersome
Please let me know if you need any more information
From the echocardiogram you don't have a valve problem with can sometimes cause these, so you just have them for no real reason
They can be treated with a beta blocker medication like propranolol if they bother you
