Holter Monitoring

  • What is Holter Monitoring?

    Holter Monitoring is a non-invasive diagnostic test that uses a portable device called a holter monitor. Unlike the common Electrocardiogram that records the heart’s electrical activity for a few seconds, the holter monitor allows the electrical activity of the heart to be recorded continuously for 24 to 48 hours. You are normally required to carry the holter monitor on you all the time while performing your usual daily routine, and to keep a record of your activities. The cardiologist will assess the readings of the holter monitor against your physical daily activity in order to determine any abnormal heartbeats and disorders.

  • If you suffer from palpitations, fainting and dizziness spells, your doctor may recommend Holter Monitoring to be able correlate these symptoms to your heart rhythm. This test allows transient rhythm disorders of the heart to be detected.

    Your cardiologist may recommend Holter Monitoring to assess the electrical activity of your heart under normal activity or following a heart attack. Holter Monitoring also allows the cardiologist to diagnose any heart rhythm abnormalities (including serious arrhythmias), and to monitor the effect of a new heart medicine. It is also useful for monitoring your heart rhythm following a heart procedure to determine if the procedure was successful.
