You will find a wide range of ECG holters equipped with the latest technologies and innovations, that provide accurate recordings from 24 hours to 21 days.
What is an ECG Holter ?
Invented by the American biophysicist Norman Holter, the Holter is a portable device that continuously records a patient's cardiac activity, usually for 24 to 48 hours.
In contrast to the conventional electrocardiogram, which lasts only a few minutes, the Holter ECG can monitor the activity of the heart over a long period of time and thus detect sporadic phenomena.
The device detects heart rate disturbances that may cause discomfort, neurological symptoms or palpitations. The diagnosis of these disorders leads to appropriate treatment (with medication or by implanting a pacemaker). Sometimes it may be necessary to repeat the examination several times so as to capture infrequent abnormalities.
Technology of the Holter ECG :
The Holter consists of a small recording box, worn on a shoulder strap or belt, connected to electrodes placed on the skin at chest level which allow the recording of the different leads.
This device is characterised by its number of channels (from 3 to 12) corresponding to the number of recording channels available.
The choice is made according to the number of possible channels and the maximum recording capacity or duration.
