Holter Monitoring Under Cardiac and Vascular Studies
A Holter monitor is a continuous tape recording of a patient’s electrocardiogram (EKG) for a period of time ranging between 24 and 48 hours. In other words, the small device is responsible for measuring the rhythm of your heart throughout the day. As it is worn during your regular daily activities, it will help your physician correlate symptoms of dizziness, palpitations, or blackouts. A Holter monitor test generally takes place if an electrocardiogram does not provide sufficient information about the condition of your heart.
