Managing Your Heart Health
You can now manage your heart health better by monitoring your heart’s activity right in the comfort of your own home with the Holter Monitor. This non-invasive, pain-free system records your heart’s activity for 24 to 72 hours at a time in order to assess irregular heart rhythms, evaluate dizziness and fainting, determine the effects of heart drugs, and assess Pacemaker function.
You receive quick and easy access to the expertise of a cardiac specialist as your cardiac information is downloaded in real time to the recorders at our Dynacare Laboratory and Health Services Centres, where it is then sent out to medical consultants for interpretation. Their reports are returned electronically to Dynacare for distribution to your healthcare provider.
Light and easy to use
The Holter Monitor won’t get in the way of your normal daily activities. Disposable latex-free skin sensors are attached to your chest with a cable connecting to a small monitor. The monitor will continuously record your heart’s activity until it is disconnected the next day at a Dynacare Laboratory and Health Services Centre.
To arrange an appointment, you or your healthcare provider can contact the nearest Dynacare Laboratory and Health Services Centre. Find the Laboratory and Health Services Centre nearest you by clicking here.
