Event Monitor

 

The event monitor will capture the electrical activity of the heart.  It is used to detect abnormal heart rhythms that may be occurring when you experience symptoms (such as shortness of breath, palpitations / irregular heart beats, dizziness, fainting etc.).  Your heart rhythm will only be recorded when an event button is pressed while you are experiencing symptoms.  The monitor is loaned to you for up to 7 days.  You will be able to remove the monitor to shower and reattach it yourself at home.
