24 Hour Holter Monitor in London
A 24-hour Holter monitor is a device which allows us to assess the heart rate and the heart rhythm and electrical activity of the heart. Leads will be connected to certain areas of your chest and they will record constantly your heart rhythm and heart rate throughout your daily activity.
- What does a 24 hour ECG holter monitor show?
- 24 hour holter monitor results
It is a constant ECG recording which is measured by you wearing the monitor. It will assess the number of your heartbeats throughout the day and will pick up any abnormal heart rhythms.
Then, this allows us to understand whether there are any heart problems or any other heart conditions which require attention.
In fact, if the heart muscle does not contract well or there are abnormalities, but also high-stress episodes, then these will translate into heart rhythm abnormalities which would be picked up by the 24-hour Holter monitor.
There are many heart conditions which can cause an irregular heartbeat such as heart valve disease or disease of the heart muscles or blocked arteries. Usually, the 24-hour Holter monitor results will be with you within 24 hours after receiving the monitor back.
There are different indications for the 24-hour Holter monitor, in particular, if you feel short of breath, if you feel dizzy, light-headed or if you have ever collapsed. In case you need, we have available a 24-hour monitor that does also record blood pressure.
The 24 hour holter monitor activity
The 24-hour Holter monitor interpretation is done by a Cardiologist or a Physiologist: the electrocardiogram (ECG) activity of your heart will show whether there are any irregular heartbeats which could be a fast heartbeat or very low heartbeat. Therefore, these will guide us to the necessary treatment.
