24 Hour Holter Monitoring
Holter Monitoring allows recording of every heart beat over a specified time period to look for abnormalities of the heart's electrical system (arrhythmias). Whilst the ECG gives a brief snapshot of heart rhythm and conduction, the Holter Monitor extends that period of assessment.
Holter Monitors are used to assess arrhythmias (which may present as palpitations), heart rate variability and treatment with certain medications. They can also be useful in long term post-operative surveillance for arrhythmia development.
