What is 24 Hour Holter Monitoring ?
A Holter monitor is a small, battery-powered medical device that measures your heart’s activity, such as rate and rhythm. Your doctor may ask you to use one if they need more information about how your heart functions than a routine electrocardiogram (EKG) can give them.
Twenty-four hour Holter monitoring is a continuous test to record your heart’s rate and rhythm for 24 hours. You wear the Holter monitor for 12 to 48 hours as you go about your normal daily routine. This device has electrodes and electrical leads exactly like a regular EKG, but it has fewer leads. It can pick up not only your heart’s rate and rhythm but also when you feel chest pains or exhibit symptoms of an irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia.
While doing the test, the person will go to school or work as usual. A doctor may also ask them to limit their alcohol or caffeine consumption.
A person should record their daily activities and any symptoms they feel. Noting down the time that chest pain strikes, for example, can help doctors decide where to look first when deciphering the results.
The 24-hour Holter monitor test is non-invasive. It may be inconvenient, but the test poses no serious risks.
Who requires 24-hour Holter Monitoring?
Some reasons for your healthcare provider to request a Holter monitor recording or event monitor recording include: To evaluate chest pain that can’t be reproduced with exercise testing. To evaluate other signs and symptoms that may be heart-related, such as tiredness, shortness of breath, dizziness, or fainting.
A doctor may ask for Holter monitoring if a person has symptoms such as:
- A fast or slow heartbeat
- Weakness or fatigue
- Feeling out of breath
- Chest pain
- A fluttering sensation in the heart
- An uneven heartbeat
- The feeling of skipping heartbeats
- Dizziness while using a pacemaker
How is 24 Hour Holter Monitoring done ?
A technician will attach the electrodes to the skin with an adhesive gel to hold them in place and ensure accurate readings. If there is hair in the area, the technician may need to shave it before securing the electrodes.
Metal in the electrodes picks up the heart’s activity as electrical signals. The electrodes then transmit the signals to the monitor, which records them.
What Results can I expect From 24 Hour Holter Monitoring ?
The doctor will consider the monitor’s readings and the person’s notes when making a diagnosis. The Holter monitor’s readings may reveal an underlying heart condition, new symptoms, and potential triggers. It may also help to show problems caused by medication.
A person may have to wait for 1–2 weeks for results of the test.
