A Holter monitor is a test performed using a portable electrocardiogram (ECG) that can record the activity of your heart for over 24 hours while you are away from your doctor’s office.
We may recommend this test for patients who may be concerned about heart palpitations, dizziness, fatigue, low blood pressure, or atypical chest sensations with no clear cause.
Similar to other tests electrodes are placed on certain points of the chest and abdomen and connected to the machine by wires to measure and record your heart’s electrical activity. It is important to note that no electrical impulses are sent into the body.
Once you return to our office, the results will be printed and evaluated by your physician to determine the best treatment plans for your needs.
