holter-monitor

A Holter monitor is a small, cell phone sized device, attached with electrodes to wires that record your heart rhythm. Typically we may want you to wear a Holter monitor for one to two days. The device continuously records all heartbeats. Holter monitor test is usually performed after a traditional test to check your heart rhythm (electrocardiogram), does not provide a necessary cause of your symptoms. Your doctor uses information provided by the Holter monitor to figure out if you have a heart rhythm problem. If standard Holter monitoring does not capture your irregular heartbeat, your doctor may suggest a wireless Holter monitor (Mobile Cardiac Telemetry or MCT) which can work for weeks.
