This procedure is performed in our outpatients department by caring and highly skilled consultants, nurses and physiologists. Our cardiology department is equipped with the most up-to-date diagnostic and interventional tools available.
The Holter Monitor is a small device that records your ECG for 24, 48 or 72 hours, depending on your specific referral. You may be referred for a Holter Monitor if you have had some symptoms of arrhythmia, such as dizziness or palpitations, if your medication regime has recently been changed or you have started a new medication, or if you have an existing arrhythmia requiring periodic assessment.
Three electrodes will be placed on your chest and connected to the Holter Monitor. These should remain in place for up to 72 hours, depending on the length of recording time. No bath or shower should be taken while the monitor is in place, as it is not waterproof. After the recording period is complete, you will be asked to return to the Outpatient department. Removal of the monitor takes only a couple of minutes. The results will be downloaded and analysed and the results of your test will be sent to your referring doctor within 3-5 working days.
