PVCs and PICC lines

KK has been throwing a few PVCs (Premature Ventricular Contractions) since her heart arrhythmia which I mentioned in yesterday's post.  It has been a little disconcerting since her vitals have been strong all along and they only seemed to appear after the arrhythmia.  Today's nurse noted that they seem to happen when she lays on her left side...which is the side where her PICC line was inserted during surgery the day before the arrhythmia.  She wondered if leaning on the PICC line was "tickling" her heart, so they just had X-ray come to see if this could be the source of the PVCs.  It certainly would do my heart good to find the cause of the PVCs and rectify it.
