Holter Monitoring 24-hour & 48-hour
When people report symptoms of heart problems, doctors often use ECGs to help diagnose the issue. A standard ECG shows a snapshot of the heart’s overall electrical activity. If a snapshot is not sufficient, a doctor may request 24-hour Holter monitoring.
A Holter monitor attaches to the body in much the same way as a standard ECG. The small device has thin electrical cords with electrodes that are attached to areas of the chest.
The doctor may order Holter monitoring for 12, 24, or 48 hours, depending on the symptoms and how often they occur.
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
Many issues that affect the heartbeat only appear sporadically throughout the day, and a person is unlikely to be in a doctor’s office when the problems occur.
This is one advantage of continuous Holter monitoring. The monitor can record the issue whenever it happens, helping doctors to diagnose the underlying problem.
The Holter device can also help to monitor people with diagnosed heart conditions as they go about their daily lives. A person is usually more comfortable with this arrangement than with lengthy hospital stays.
In addition, a doctor may order 24-hour Holter monitoring to check a person’s response to medications for heart problems.
