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 in 6-12hours.

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?

Skin preparation is needed to ensure that the electrodes (small sticky patches connected to leads) can be securely fitted to your chest; this involves light skin abrasion and cleaning the skin  to ensure that the dead skin cells and any natural oils are cleaned away. If you have chest hair this will need to be shaved off.

We attach five electrodes (small sticky patches) 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.

You should make note (by pressing the button on the device) of the follow symptoms:

  •  Shortness of breath or Breathlessness or feeling that you cannot catch your breath sometimes made worse by exercising. Shortness of breath can also be at rest.

  • Palpitations: a beating sensation in your chest that you can feel, this could be described as a fluttering, pounding, racing, skipped beats or irregular beats.

  • Dizziness, feeling giddy or that you may fall over.

  • Fainting or collapsing, can also be described as having a black-out.

  • Chest pain: a pain in the center of your chest, when associated with arrhythmia it can come and go quickly.
