Holter Monitoring & Electrocardiography
Holter monitoring is a simple, noninvasive tool for evaluating and managing cardiac symptoms in patients. Two electrocardiography leads are recorded over a 24 to 48 hour period. The data provides an in-depth representation of a patient’s cardiac condition during routine activities of work, sleep, and exercise.
Once collected, the ECG tracing is analyzed to identify a wide array of physiological events: disturbances in the electrical conduction of the heart, myocardial changes associated with ischemia and infarction, evaluation of treatment and drug therapies, and assessment of pacemaker and internal defibrillator function.
