Holter Monitoring

Home / Services / Holter Monitoring

Holter monitors are often a physician’s first line of defense when a patient reports symptoms of a cardiac irregularity.

They are a non-invasive, wearable device that records the patient’s heart rhythm for a prescribed period of time during which the patient assumes normal, daily activities.

Although it may be a low-cost, low-risk option, many physicians report non-diagnostic rates as high as 85%. 

Most often, this is because symptoms may not reappear in the 24 to 48 hours during which the Holter is monitoring the patient’s heart rhythm.
