Like an ECG, to go!
The Holter Monitor is a wearable device that tracks and records the electrical impulse of your heart continuously, over an extended period of time. The monitor is lightweight and relatively convenient to wear. This is an absolutely painless, non-invasive test to determine how your heart naturally responds to regular, daily activities and how your heart rhythms change at night when you sleep. As such, you will be fitted with the device and then sent on your way, wearing it out of the office and for the duration of the monitoring period. You will be given a Holter diary to record the time and nature of your activities while you are wearing the device. Do not restrict your activities in any way, do not remove the device, and do not get it wet. Please review further instructions below before your appointment.
