Holter Monitoring & Event Recorders

A Holter monitor is a 24- or 48-hour heart monitor.  It records your heart's activity during your normal activities, day and night.  You will be asked to keep a diary of your activities and any cardiac symptoms (such as chest pain, rapid or skipped beats or dizziness).  At the end of the 24 or 48-hour period, the recording will be evaluated.  Longer monitoring periods, utilizing event monitors, are sometimes needed.  Event monitors allow you to activate the recorder when you experience symptoms.

  • Preparation:  Avoid lotions or oils on skin prior to test.
  • Test Duration:  This test will take about 10-15 minutes
