We provide your facility and the ordering physician with a full disclosure report reviewed and interpreted by our Board Certified Cardiologists, Our technicians will personally administer the monitor at the patient’s bedside, and return to remove it 24 hours later.
A Holter monitor is a battery-operated portable device that measures and tape records your heart’s activity (ECG) continuously for 24 to 48 hours or longer depending on the type of monitoring used. The device is the size of a small camera. It has wires with silver dollar-sized electrodes that attach to your skin.
Holter Monitors facilitate the evaluation of dizziness, lightheadedness, chest pain, ST-Segment and T-Wave Changes, and pacemaker function. They also assist in the guidance of cardiac rehabilitation or exercise programs and in determining effects of anti-arrhythmic drugs or drugs that have cardiac side effects.
