The 24-hour Holter Monitor, a straightforward and non-invasive tool, offers a precise method for tracking your heart rhythm. It's instrumental in investigating health concerns such as palpitations, skipped heartbeats, or fainting episodes.
To perform this test, electrodes are securely positioned on your chest and connected to a compact, portable monitoring device. This device, small enough to be comfortably worn, unobtrusively records your heart's activity throughout the day.
Typically, you'll wear this lightweight monitor for a full 24-hour cycle, and in some cases, up to an entire week. During this period, we'll request you to maintain a meticulous diary of any symptoms or unusual events. This will allow us to correlate your symptoms with any irregularities in your heart rhythm captured by the Holter monitor.
