Electrocardiogram Holter detects irregular heart rates that would have been missed by conventional electrocardiograms. Arrhythmias that properly overlooked when taking a one-time electrocardiogram are paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (the cause of stroke), ventricular extrasystoles, dangerous ventricular tachycardia (increased risk of cardiac arrest, sudden death), cases of coronary artery spasm, etc.
Monitoring the electrocardiogram for a long period of time increases the chances of detecting abnormalities that may happen for a few seconds or not show any symptoms. Studies show that more than 90% of major cardiac arrhythmias are detected when wearing Holter ECG for up to 7 days.
Wearing Holter in front of the chest and working as usual for 3 to 7 days, the machine will record the entire progression of your heart rate during sleep, stress, sports, etc.
CarePlus is the first clinic in Ho Chi Minh City to own the latest generation Bittium Faros EKG Holter. With its compact size (weighing only 18g), the latest generation Holter ECG can record up to 7 days without interruption. All data will be analyzed by Overseas Data Analysts (USA, India, etc). Therefore, the results are accurate and reliable.
Below is the sharing of Dr. Hoang Cong Duong - Medical Director - Head of Cardiology Department of CarePlus International Clinic System - about the effectiveness of cardiac arrhythmia screening with the most modern EKG Holter.
