Holter Monitor

A Holter monitor is a portable device with electrodes that attach to the patient’s chest, which continuously records heart rhythms for 24 to 48 hours. The device allows a Deborah Specialty Physicians cardiologist to print an electrocardiogram strip and determine if the heart is working properly or if a patient may have a heart condition such as an arrhythmia. This is one of the simplest tests used to evaluate the heart.
