Holter monitor/Event monitor

  • These tests indicate any irregular rhythms in your heart. A holter monitor is a continuous recording of your heart’s rhythm during 24 hours of normal activity and rest. An event monitor is similar but worn for a longer period of time. 

Stress test

  • Stress tests measure your heart’s reaction to increased demand for oxygen. The tests record the electrical activity of the heart during walking and running.
