About the Holter Exam
How is done
The electrodes are positioned on the chest and connected to the holter, a small monitor that sits at the waist. He then starts recording the number of heartbeats, any changes in rhythm, and so on. It should be noted that the person continues with his normal life. She works, sleeps and eats while the holter does its job. You just can't take a shower with the appliance - better wash yourself first. The next day, the device's information is collected and analyzed. It is common to ask the patient to, in parallel, write down in his diary his main activities of the day and any symptoms he feels.
As in the electrocardiogram, the report of the holter must show a sinus heart rhythm, that is, normal. Ideally, beats should be between 60 and 100 per minute. The electrodes record, in addition to changes in this number, parameters such as the duration of the electrical waves in each segment of the chest.
