Recommendations on atrial ectopy

Infrequent atrial ectopy is mostly benign and usually does not require further investigation or restrictions for aircrew, as long as it’s not associated with haemodynamic symptoms. If numerous, ambulatory ECG monitoring is recommended. If there are >1% of beats on ambulatory ECG monitoring consideration should be given to further investigation; if >5% this is recommended with regular follow-up. Aircrew may be restricted in their flying duties.Recommended
