Monitoring of Heart Rhythm
Continuous assessment of heart rhythm over 24-48hrs.
What is Monitoring of heart rhythm?
Electrodes will be attached to your chest and connected to a monitoring box. You will wear this continuously (apart from during showering/bathing/contact sports activities) for 24-48hrs typically, occasionally longer. The device is compact and quite light and can easily be worn under most clothing.
Why would you need monitoring of heart rhythm?
Patients with palpitations (awareness of heart beating fast/flutters) often require a period of monitoring to determine if there is a treatable cause of heart rhythm disturbance.
