Holter Monitor

A Holter Monitor is a small device you wear for one or two days to keep track of your heart rhythm. This portable monitor is usually recommended after you’ve had a standard electrocardiogram and it doesn’t provide enough information about your heart. Tiny sensors taped to your chest send information about your heart to the monitor through small wires. While wearing a Holter monitor can be a little inconvenient, it gives your doctor an important tool to accurately diagnose any potential heart condition.
