What Is Event Monitoring?

When Using a Monitor

Stay away from electric blankets, magnets, metal detectors, and high-voltage areas such as power lines. They may affect the recording.

Event monitoring is a painless way to record your heartbeat away from the doctor's office. It is a small electrocardiogram (ECG) that you carry with you. Event monitoring records your heartbeat for your doctor to review at a later time. The event monitor lets you record your irregular heartbeat as you feel it. You may carry this monitor for days or weeks. You can receive your heart monitor in a hospital, test center, or doctor's office.

Technician and patient

Your Event Monitor

After you are shown how to use your event monitor, carry it with you all the time. When you feel a symptom, activate the monitor by pressing a button (wristwatch style) or holding it to your chest (small box or credit card style). Be sure to keep a diary.

Testimonials

Dear Dr. Manshadi, "I wish to thank you for the work you have done to treat my poor heart. You identified the occlusion and did an excellent job in placing the stent. This occurred around coincidently with the birth of your baby boy but you put me at the top of your priorities and proceeded with treatment. Please accept my sincerest appreciation for your good work."
- M. Edwards, actual patient.
