- When are holter monitors used?
If a patient has been having symptoms such as chest palpitations, shortness of breath or a racing heart, their heart activity is often monitored over a 24-hour period, whilst they continue with their day-to-day activities. ECG holter monitors are primarily used to perform this 24-hour ambulatory ECG procedure.
- What are the advantages of holter monitors?
Holter heart monitors allow a patient to continue with their day-to-day activities whilst their heart is monitored.
These 24-hour ECG monitors are safe and non-invasive for the patient. Designed for easy usage, they can be placed in a pouch, to go around a neck, in a pocket or attached to a belt.
- What is a normal heart rate on a holter ECG report?
A normal adult heart rate is between 60 & 100 beats per minute.
- What’s the difference between holter monitors and event monitors?
Holter monitors record continuously, often monitoring over a 24-48 hour period whilst the patient continues with their everyday life. However, an event monitor does not continually monitor the patient’s heart. Instead, it just automatically starts recording when it is activated, for example when an abnormal heart rhythm is detected. They are often worn for at least a month.
