Home / Holter Monitor in 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.

Doctor’s note:

The test is completely painless and it is important that you wear the monitor throughout the day and night. It is also important that you do not get the monitor wet so please do not have a bath or shower while wearing it. It takes about 15 minutes to have the device applied and set up and about 5 minutes to remove it. Additionally:

  • You should wear loose clothing so that the monitor can be worn easily under your clothes
  • You should take a bath or shower before coming to your appointment as you will not be able to do so while wearing the Holter monitor
  • Do not apply any body lotion or oil to your skin before the appointment, as this makes it difficult to attach the electrodes
