Cardiac Tests

Holter Monitoring

A Holter monitor is a tape recorder, which is attached to your skin by ECG electrodes. It is able to record the heart rhythm over a 24-hour period. You will record any symptoms that occur during that time. The recording is then analyzed. It may detect changes in heart rhythm, or changes in the ECG that might mean lack of blood supply to the heart.
