Digital Holter Monitoring

The Monitor

The Philips Digitrak XT Holter is a 5-lead monitor that records all EKG activity during a 24 to 48 hour period. Once applied, the device requires no patient involvement and will turn off after the testing period has ended. The patient is asked to complete a diary to record periods of symptomatic activity or medication. Our technicians will correlate EKG strips with the exact time of the symptomatic event.
