Holter and Event Monitors
When you experience symptoms like palpitations or a racing heart, it may not be something we can detect during the time you are in the Collins Cardiology office. To get a detailed look at your heart’s activity over a period of time, we may send you home with a Holter monitor.
To learn more, call our Douglas location at 912-384-6276. The number for all five of our locations is 888-708-6577.
Effective Portable Monitors
The battery-powered Holter monitor is worn by you. It attaches to a set of leads that pick up the electrical impulses of your heart. Just like our in-office EKG, the Holter reads your heart’s electrical impulses over a 24-hour period.
Similarly, the event monitor performs the same function but is activated and begins recording when you push a button. This is a helpful diagnostic tool for those who experience symptoms that we wish to monitor.
Things to Expect From Holter or Event Monitoring
When you are fitted with a Holter or event monitor, we will place the electrodes on areas around your chest. The monitor pack can be fitted to your belt or over your shoulder so that it does not interfere with your daily routine. You will be asked to go about your day as usual and keep a log of your daily activities.
In 24 hours, or as directed, you will return to our office to turn in your monitor so that the physician can assess the results.
