What Is An Event Recorder?
- An event recorder is a week-long recording of your heart rate and rhythm.
How Is A Event Monitor Performed?
- You will be required to wear a small monitor for the majority of each day, only to be removed to shower. The monitor has soft leads which attach to the skin on your chest. You will be shown at your appointment how to remove and re-apply the monitor.
What To Expect
- The monitor will hang around your neck over the week period.
- While you are wearing the monitor you will be asked to do everything as per normal in your day to day life.
- You won’t be required to make an appointment to return the monitor. The technician will tell you the time and place to return your monitor the following week.
- Once you return the monitor we can begin to analyse the recording. You won’t be given the results immediately.
- Once the monitor has been reported the results will be sent to your GP. The results can take up to a week to get to your GP’s office. If there is anything of concern, your GP will be contacted sooner.
- If you have a follow up appointment with your cardiologist they will discuss the results with you at your next appointment.
