Home / Best Heart Palpitations NYC – (ECG) Monitoring NYC
A Holter ECG monitor is usually a 24-hour monitor worn to determine if an individual who has palpitations has any irregular heartbeat or abnormal normal heart rhythm that may require medication.
This device keeps track of one’s heart rhythm and all heartbeats over 24 hours. In certain instances, a long-term monitor can be worn for one or two weeks.
The ability to record your heart rhythm over a period of 24 hours increases the likelihood of obtaining important cardiac diagnostic information that can direct appropriate medical treatment and to discover why you are having heart palpitations.
After your test period, the NYC cardiologist, Dr. Steven Reisman, will take the data from the monitor, analyze it, and produce a comprehensive report for your doctor.
The Ambulatory “Holter” Electrocardiographic (ECG) Monitoring test will ultimately provide you, your primary doctor, and the cardiologist with imperative information on which to base any decisions about your health.
