    An encyclopedia entry for "Holter monitor" is presented. It refers to a wearable device used in ambulatory electrocardiography (ECG) to record the heart's electrical activity continuously for 24 hours or longer. It records this activity by means of electrodes attached to the chest and enables...

    Palpitation is a common symptom that sometimes results from a substantial cardiac arrhythmia. We compared the diagnostic yield of trans-telephonic event monitors with those of Holter monitoring in patients with intermittent palpitations. In all, 310 patients were randomly assigned to receive an...
