    Extrasystoles, also referred to as ectopic beats, are cardiac contractions that
    occur at an earlier stage during the cardiac cycle. Extrasystoles may be associ￾ated with rheumatic heart disease, ischaemic heart disease and acute myo￾cardial infarction. Extrasystoles may be asymptomatic. Digoxin is now rarely
    used for the management of arrhythmias. Anti-arrhythmic drugs are preferred
    in the management of extrasystole.
