Holter Recording Instructions 

The success of the recording depends on your cooperation. You are expected to keep track of your activities and symptoms in the diary. Please record:

  • Exercise

Any or all of the following symptoms:

  • Chest Pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Palpitations
  • Light Headedness
  • Dizziness

Important Points to Remember:

  • Do not shower, bathe or swim. Any moisture will loosen the electrodes and water will destroy the computer.
  • Do not use body powder or talcum.
  • Avoid using electric blankets, as they may interfere with the recording.
  • Keep recorder straps around your waist or shoulder while moving about.
  • Do not remove any tape that has been placed over the lead wires.
  • If a lead wire comes unsnapped from an electrode, snap it back on and enter this in your diary.

NOTE: DO NOT open the monitor. DO NOT detach the monitor.

Please return the entire carrying case (straps, belt). You are fully responsible for the recording device.
