Cardiology is the medical specialty that deals with all conditions of the heart and blood vessels. Make an appointment to meet our physicians in person to discuss your specific symptoms or cardiovascular issues.
A Holter monitor is a small, portable device that continuously records the heart’s rhythms and records the electrical activity of the heart. A Holter monitor may be used to capture information and check an individual’s heart rhythm if results of other tests, such as an electrocardiogram (EKG), have been inconclusive. The monitor is worn for 24 to 48 hours during normal activity, and it it records the heart’s electrical activity during that time period.
Extended Cardiac Monitoring
An event monitor is a small machine (about the size of a pager) that monitors your heart rhythm beat-to-beat in real time. It automatically detects irregular heart rhythms that may be causing your fainting, dizziness, chest pain or palpitations. Once a cardiologist finds out if your symptoms are coming from an irregular heart rhythm he may refer you to a heart rhythm doctor (electrophysiologist) to discuss specific treatment options.
