Twenty-four hour Holter monitoring is a continuous test to record your heart’s rate and rhythm for 24 hours. You wear the Holter monitor for 24 hours as you go about your normal daily routine.
It can pick up not only your heart’s rate and rhythm but also when you feel chest pains or exhibit symptoms of an irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia (palpitations, dizziness, light-headness, etc.)
Keep the Holter monitor dry to ensure it functions properly. Take a bath or shower before your appointment to have the monitor fitted and don’t apply any lotions or creams. Avoid activities that might lead to the monitor getting wet.
Magnetic and electrical fields may interfere with the function of the Holter monitor. Avoid areas of high voltage while wearing the monitor.
We provide this service for FREE. Please ensure the device is returned to our clinic the following day for data analysis by a Cardiologist.
