What does “Holter monitoring” mean?
Holter monitoring is a functional study of the cardiovascular system. This method of research allows for the continuous recording of heart dynamics on the ECG using a portable device (holter). The Holter Diagnostic Method makes it possible to monitor changes in the functioning of the heart and monitor the
blood pressure of the patient throughout the day, under the conditions of its natural activity. During the examination, ECG recording is performed in 3 channels; due to this fact, data on the work of your heart muscle within 24-48 hours are the most objective and reliable; a compact portable recorder is worn on the belt and does not cause trouble.
When is the device used?
Holter monitoring is used in the following cases:
- Determination of heart rhythm, anomalies in it
- Assessment of variable pain in the chest area
- Assessment of the condition of patients with percutaneously inserted cardiac units
- Determination of the level of influence of some drugs
- What does Holter monitoring mean?
- To determine in which areas the heart muscle does not receive sufficient blood
Rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, fainting, chest pain can be caused by a variety of reasons. Holter monitoring allows to determine their relationship with cardiac dysfunction.

How is the Holter integrated?
A compact portable logger (Holter) is worn on the belt and fixed with electrodes, without causing any inconvenience. The patient can lead a habitual way of life. After the agreed period, the registrar is removed from the patient and connected to the computer, as a result of which the daily ECG is examined and evaluated.
