Holter monitoring

Holter monitoring is used to record the electrical activity of the heart over a 24-hour period. The test may be ordered to record abnormally slow or fast heartbeats or irregularities of the heart. The patient wears a small recorder for approximately 24 hours while they go about their normal daily activities.

If you need a holter monitor, it will be fitted in Dr Sammel’s rooms and then you will return the next day (approximately 24 hours later) to have the monitor removed. Dr Sammel will then analyse the holter monitor recordings and ring you to discuss the results.
