A rhythm monitor is used to determine if symptoms (e.g. palpitations) are caused by an abnormal heart rhythm or if you suffer asymptomatic abnormal rhyhtms.
No preparation is required before having one of these monitors. Through a patch device attached to the centre of your chest wall your heart trace (ECG) can be monitored for 72 hours, 7 days or 14 days. The device is small and waterproof, so you can go about your normal day and have a wash while wearing it. The device continuously records your ECG, and can be activated if you have any symptoms.
Once the period of recording is completed, the device analysed and a full report will be provided within 72 hours.
