Cardiac Event Recorder

A cardiac event recorder is a portable, battery-powered device that continuously monitors and records your heart’s electrical activity.

It records abnormal heart rhythms, fast and slow heartbeats and makes a record when you have symptoms such as dizziness or fainting. A cardiac event recorder is sometimes preferable to an in-office electrocardiogram because instead of recording your heart’s rhythms at a specific point while you’re at rest, it makes a record of your heart’s activity throughout the day, as symptoms come and go, which gives your doctor a clearer picture of your heart health. There are no risks to wearing it.

A cardiac event recorder can be used to see how your heart responds to medication and let your doctor know if your heart is getting the oxygen it needs. It can also help measure the effectiveness and proper function of a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter/defibrillator.
