The Holter monitor is worn to record your heart rate for 24 to 48 hours. The monitor is carried in a pocket or in a small pouch worn around the neck. You will be asked to record any signs you have while wearing the monitor, such as:
Feeling heartbeat speeding up (palpitation)
Feeling skipped heart beats (arrhythmic sensation)
Please arrive on time for you appointment.
Please do not remove the batteries from the device during the recording period.
Test results are sent to your doctor for evaluation. Your doctor will share the results with you.
