The Holter test is performed on a Holter monitor. The device is a small and wearable which keeps track of a heart rhythm of a patient. Our doctor may want a patient to wear a Holter monitor for one to two days. During that stipulated time slot, the device records all of the heartbeats of each individual patient. A Holter monitor test is often performed after a traditional test which checks the rhythm of the heart (electrocardiogram). This is especially done in order to have the accuracy in results and information when the electrocardiogram doesn't give a doctor enough information about your heart's condition.
