What is Holter monitoring and what information does it give?


Holter monitoring is a means of recording an electrocardiogram (ECG), a trace which shows the electrical activity of the heart. Unlike a conventional ECG, a Holter monitor is a portable device which your pet wears for 1 to 7 days to give us a sustained overview of the heart’s electrical activity. The technique is especially useful for assessing disturbances in heart rate and rhythm investigating whether such disturbances may be responsible for clinical signs including fainting.
