Home Heart Monitoring at the
Heart Rhythm Center
For patients whose symptoms are inconsistent, special wearable heart monitors help document heart rhythm disorders or periods of dizziness or lightheadedness. These cardiac event and 24-hour Holter monitors use EKG (electrocardiogram) technology and implantable loop recorders.
Patients wear the monitors at home, pushing a button to record the times they experience symptoms. The wearable monitors help evaluate whether symptoms are due to arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, or other heart rhythm problem. The information gathered is then read and evaluated by the Heart Rhythm Center team.
