We provide professional support in Rhythm Holter.
Rhythm Holter Test (or Holter monitor)
Electrocardiographic recording of heartbeats for 24 hours (up to 48-72 hours in
some newer devices). It is mostly used to monitor heart rhythm during a
person’s normal daily life.
In the diagnosis of rhythm disorders,
In the evaluation of the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular
diseases that do not cause complaints,
In monitoring the treatment in rhythm or vascular diseases,
In some complaints of the patient (especially fainting),
investigating whether the complaints are related to the heart.
By recording the heartbeats for a long time, rhythm
disorders and the highest and lowest values of
the heart rate during the day can be detected, thus the most appropriate
treatment method is determined.
It is a device that is attached to a belt like a mobile
phone and is attached to the chest by means of 3-4 cables and electrodes (3-4
cm diameter adhesive material made of soft plastic). While the person
continues his/her normal daily life, the device records the heart electrode for
the scheduled time. At the end of the period, the device is removed and
the records are analyzed on the computer.
Thanks to this device, all rhythm disorders originating
from the heart such as palpitations, chest pains, and fainting sensations that
are not seen during the examination but last for a short time during the day
can be detected.
Before the Holter examination, you should especially ask
your doctor if you need to stop the medications you are taking before the
examination. After the Holter device is inserted, repeat the events that
make up your complaint, for example, if your complaint occurs over coffee, or
if it happens when you go up stairs, go up the stairs, etc.
This is very similar to the event recorder. But
here, the patient does not need to go to a center to show the records he has
received. Records are sent to the assessment center via telephone.
These devices do not pose a risk to the
patient. They must be removed during bathing, as they are affected by
moisture and water.
