What is an ECG Holter monitor?
This cardiac test monitors your heart rhythm over 24 hours. You will need to wear the monitor around your waist or carry it in your pocket.
You can continue along with your daily activities throughout the test.
When you return the monitor to the office, the heart specialist, which in our case is your cardiologist in our cardiology clinic, will analyse the data, interpret them and produce the report.
The test can provide your doctor with much more data regarding your cardiac rhythm on which to base any medical decisions concerning your health.
How is the monitor fitted?
We attach five electrodes (small sticky patches connected to leads) to your chest.
Small wires from the monitor are connected to those electrodes.
You will wear the monitor around your waist clipped to a band or carry it in your pocket.
Holter monitor electrode placement takes about 10 minutes to fit.
This test is totally painless and it's vital that you simply wear the monitor throughout the day and night, and maintain your normal daily activities.
It is additionally vital that you simply don't get the monitor wet therefore please don't have a bath or shower while carrying it.
Holter Monitoring Results Interpretation and Report
You will be asked to return the holter monitor to the office at the Cardiology clinic in Central London. Ideally, the office would prefer for the monitor to be returned in person the day following the end of the recording phase or as soon as possible afterwards.
Please, make sure you follow the department’s instructions about returning your holter monitor, as different patients could have their ECG Holter monitoring test cancelled, if you do not return the
monitor on time.
Our heart specialist Dr Kosta aims to produce a holter monitoring ECG results report within 24hrs of the monitor being returned, so that your doctor can look at the those results immediately.
