A holter and event monitor, also known as an ambulatory EKG, continuous EKG and an EKG event monitor, is a device that is used to measure the health of a heart over a long period of time.
These portable devices allow cardiologists to learn about the health of a patient’s heart and how it works in a wide range of situations. This can help us choose a more appropriate path for treatment if necessary.
These monitors are able to record your heart beat, the rhythm, the strength and timing of the electrical impulses passing through each part of your heart. The amount of time the monitors need to be worn depend on the condition being tested. For more information, contact us.
