Event Monitoring

Home / Services / Event Monitoring

A cardiac event monitor is a patient-activated option.

Typically worn for 30 days, it is prescribed for patients whose symptoms occur infrequently. When the patient experiences an abnormality, he manually presses a button to record the preceding and following five minutes of the event.

There may also be an auto-capture feature where the device records the information even if the patient is unaware of the activity.

Cardiac event monitors store the recorded data, which is ultimately transmitted either to a physician’s office or to the technician recording station
