Holter Monitor

The Holter monitor is a small, portable device you wear that makes a 24-hour continuous recording of electrical impulses during your normal daily activities. The device may detect arrhythmias which may not show up in an ECG. You will be asked to maintain a diary of your activities and symptoms while wearing the monitor to see if there is a correlation between symptoms and monitor findings.
