Digital Holter Monitoring
Digital Holter Monitoring is a noninvasive diagnostic test that records the electrical activity of a patient’s heart for 24 to 48 hours. This test helps to identify and summarize the activity of the heart during a patient’s normal daily routine. It can be very helpful in identifying cardiac abnormalities that may not be present during a standard ECG test conducted at a medical facility. Patients who are experiencing palpitations, dizziness, fainting spells, shortness of breath or chest pain may be prescribed a Holter monitor.
