Holter Test

If the patient is having symptoms like fainting or awareness of heartbeat less frequently than once a day, the heart rhythm needs to be monitored for a longer period of time. The most common device used for this is a Holter device. It is a device connected to the ECG leads which can record continuous ECG for up to 7 days. It is required to be worn all the time and the patient should carry out all routine activities while wearing the device.
