A holter monitor is a portable ECG recorder worn by patients during normal daily activities and while sleeping. The device is typically worn for 24-72hours. Our office will provide the device for patients to use.
Similar to a holter monitor, this device is worn during normal daily activities, including sleeping, but it is worn for a longer period of time to detect arrhythmias that occur less frequently. When symptoms arise, you press a button to activate the recorder, prompting the monitor to record the event for the 60 seconds prior to your pushing the button and up to 40 seconds after the arrhythmia is over.
CONTINUOUS TELEMETRY MONITORING
Similar to an event monitor, this device is worn during normal daily activities including sleeping, and is typically worn for 7 to 14 days, or up to 30 days.
The continuous telemetry monitor allows continuous heartbeat monitoring as you go about your daily activities. The device registers each heartbeat, and sends the information to a live monitor. Certified cardiac technicians, available 24 hours a day, analyze each transmission, respond to events that need immediate attention, and transmit diagnostic reports to your doctor.
