• What is a patch recorder?

    A patch recorder enables continuous recording of the heart rhythm for 7 -14 days. It requires a patch to attached to your chest. There are no wires or other electrical devices that are required for monitoring.

  • How should I prepare?

    You do not need to do anything specific to prepare for the test.

    You will be required to wear the patch continuously for upto 14 days. You can perform all of your activities during the recording period. You will be asked to try and avoid getting the patch wet for the first 24 hours but after that you are able to shower normally.

  • When do I get my results?

    Once you have completed the recording period and sent it back for analysis, Prof Ruparelia shall organise and a follow up appointment shortly after this to discuss the results of the Holter monitor and formulate an ongoing management plan.
