24 and 48 Hour Holter Monitoring

 

A Holter monitor will record your heart rate and rhythm while the monitor is worn.  It is used to detect abnormal heart rhythms which may be occurring when you experience symptoms (such as shortness of breath, palpitations / irregular heart beats, dizziness, fainting etc.).  It will also check the effectiveness of medication or implanted devices, like a pacemaker.

 

The results of the test will not be available for approximately 5 business days after the monitor is removed.  This is because the recordings need to be analysed by a technician, reported on by one of our Cardiologists and the report typed.  The results will be sent to your referring doctor for discussion.
