1. Monitor is Prescribed
The cardiac monitor continuously records your heartbeats, detecting irregular rhythms and allowing you to indicate when you are symptomatic.
Wearing the monitor will help your doctor diagnose potential problems.
Patients often experience heart rhythm disorders without realizing it. Therefore, your doctor may prescribe you a heart monitor to determine if you are having an arrhythmia. Tests such as electrocardiograms (ECG) only allow a doctor to look at the heart’s activity at one point in time and a monitor can capture your heart rhythms over a longer period of time. Until you are diagnosed with an arrhythmia, you may be at risk for future symptoms.
Wearing the monitor will help with the diagnosis of potential heart rhythm problems when you are outside a clinic or hospital and while you go about your daily activities. By continuously tracking your heart rhythms, doctors are more likely to discover whether an arrhythmia is causing your symptoms, and then determine the appropriate treatment for your condition.
Please return the monitor directly to Preventice in the prepaid box provided as soon as you finish your prescribed service. It is important to do so to avoid financial liability.
