What Are Holter Monitoring Services?
Holter monitoring services give doctors the ability to monitor a patient’s cardiac functions remotely. The monitors are small, wearable devices that keep track of the rhythm of the heart. Holter monitors are typically worn for anywhere between a few days, to a few weeks.
Patients who are wearing Holter monitors are able to go about their daily routines while the device acts as a powerful diagnostic tool, and takes critical records of heart function. This data is then used by doctors to make essential diagnoses and patient care decisions.
Are Holter Monitors used for Arrhythmia?
There are a variety of reasons that a Doctor might prescribe the use of a Holter Monitor. One of the most common reasons, is to monitor arrhythmia – which is an irregular heartbeat. When arrhythmia is detected, physicians will usually carry out a series of tests to figure out the source of the issue, and what the best course of treatment might be.
Typically, Holter monitoring is carried out following an electrocardiogram, which is a conventional, brief and non-invasive test used to ascertain the heart rhythm. During the test, electrodes will be taped to the chest to check the rhythm of the heart. If enough information is not received by the electrocardiogram regarding the condition of the heart, Holter Monitoring may be prescribed.
Holter monitoring devices provide doctors with the capacity to enhance the way in which they deliver care to their patients. The monitor captures data that enables the doctor to determine if the heart rhythm is off, which could potentially be lifesaving.
If there are signs that a condition could be the result of an intermittently irregular heart rhythm, a Cardiologist might recommend the use of a Holter monitor for a prolonged period of time. During that period, the Holter monitor can detect irregularities in the rhythm of the heart that was previously undetected by an electrocardiogram. In addition, doctors could also recommend a heart monitor if the patient has a heart condition which amplifies the risk of an irregular heart rhythm. It’s important to remember that these are just a few of the common reasons that a Holter monitor may be prescribed.
