The Holter Monitor is Back

Posted Jan 27 2009 6:29pm

It's been two weeks since Aiden was last attached to a Holter Monitor. Usually he gets his "leash", so to speak, once a month. Due to Aiden's new bradycardia episodes and the change in his medication, it is on again.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this device, it is a portable heart monitor that "records" heart events such as tachycardias and bradycardias. It is about the size of the older pagers.



What it does is basically a home administered EKG. It stores the recording until we return it to Dr. Cardiologist's office for the information to be uploaded and a readout printed out.

So until a little after 2pm tomorrow, Aiden will wear his monitor and hopefully it shows that with the decrease in Digoxin, his bradycardia episodes have decreased.

Wish us luck.......
