A Holter or event monitor is a painless exam that involves wearing a small device that monitors your heart rhythm over a period of time. You simply come into our center to be fitted and given detailed information about wearing the monitor.
A Holter monitor may be worn for 24 hours or 48 hours and then brought back to our Center to be taken off. The recorded tracings will be taken from the monitor and can then be read by a physician.
The event monitor could be worn for 7, 14, 21 or 30 days and is triggered by the patient when symptoms occur. The tracing is transmitted via telephone and read by a physician.
If you need to cancel your appointment, you must give us 24-hour notice. If you are running late, please call us as well at 540-662-0306.
