Cardiac event recorders

A cardiac event recorder is a patient-activated device designed to record the heart rhythm during symptoms or an "event." You carry a recorder over a period of one week while you go about your normal daily activities. When you feel symptoms, you press a button and the device records and stores up to several minutes of your heart's electrical activity. This recording is called an electrocardiogram, or ECG.

If you've been having recurrent symptoms such as palpitations, dizziness or fainting spells, your doctor may want to determine whether these symptoms are caused by an abnormal heart rhythm. You will be asked to record your symptoms in a diary. This will enable the interpreting physician to correlate your symptoms with the ECG recordings.

Your doctor will receive a final report within a few days.

We are dedicated to making your testing experience a pleasant one. For more information, please call us at 765-453-8333.
