Holter Monitor

A Holter monitor is a portable device we often distribute to patients to determine their heart rate and rhythm over the course of a 24-hour period.

This monitor enables us to establish the following important parameters about the electrical activity of your heart:

  • Minimum, maximum, and average heart rate
  • The presence (or absence) of any abnormal heart rhythms ("arrhythmias")
  • The presence (or absence) and frequency of any abnormal heart beats (ie, "premature atrial or ventricular beats")
