     Your best bet is to call the doctors office and ask for an interpretation of the results.  Tell them you want an explanation of results one through four. The doctor should actually tell you over the phone or maybe the nurse at the office. Someone on this site may interpret it wrong so  talk to a professional for an accurate explanation.

    I'm not a cardiologist but those are good results. Basically you are being told that you had an average heart rate of 92, lowest it dropped was 48, highest it went was 160. There were no Premature Ventricular Contractions (extra beats), but had the occassional Premature atrial contractions which are just premature beats. There were no excessive pauses they saw in your rythmm or high grade AV blocks (Atrioventricular block (AV block) is a type of heart block in which the conduction between the atriaand ventricles of the heart is impaired.). 

    So all in all this is a good thing. But if you have any questions about it its best to give them a call and have them set you at ease.

    Means you're good to go and nothing is wrong. While I'm not a doctor or a substitute for your doctor I am an RN and PAC's are normal I have them all the time and so does everyone else whether they realize it or not it probably just feels like a slipped beat bc that's what it is or "palpitation". PVC's are also normal had you had any which you apparently didn't. No pauses means you don't have any heart block which would be noted at all times if it was happening not just some times. You're good. But if you want reassurance or a greater explanation beyond that (not that there really is one) you can always call the doc that ordered it. Take care.
