There are several ways to monitor your heart and learn about how electrical impulses go through it.

Electrocardiogram (EKG)

To perform an electrocardiogram (EKG), we place electrodes on your body. Electrical impulses are conducted to external surface and then a tracing is made. This testing lasts a little less than a minute. Interpretation of this information allows diagnosis of a wide range of heart conditions. These conditions can vary from minor to life threatening.

Holter Monitoring

Holter monitoring is a continuous recording of your EKG that lasts for 24 hours. You will be asked to keep a journal and push the button on the monitor if you experience any palpitations, dizziness, or chest pain. This monitoring is useful in diagnosing any abnormal heart rhythm.

Event Recording

Event monitors are slightly smaller than Holter monitors. They can be worn for weeks or until symptoms occur. When you have symptoms, you simply push a button on your monitor to start recording. This monitor can record 3 events before you need to call us and download the information for your health care provider to review.
