The ECG tracings acquired during the recording are analysed by a Cardiologist and a report is forwarded to the patient’s referring Doctor.
During the monitoring, adhesive electrodes are placed on the patient’s chest and connected to a portable monitor. Before monitoring begins, a Cardiac Technician informs the patient how to record any symptoms experienced whilst wearing the monitor.
An Event Monitor allows patients to trigger an ECG recording when they experience their symptoms, and the recording is then transmitted by phone to be reported. Our experienced cardiac technicians arrange a detailed personal education session on how this process works for all patients requiring this investigation.
